Slow/No Response From PF

    I was wondering if anyone else has had this issue:

    A lot of times, I will start PF and things work well. However, after a few minutes, PF seems to lock up. I'll try to open a thread and nothing. Zip. Zilch. No matter what I do, all I get is that damned progress bar moving at a snail's pace and "waiting for physics forum..." Most times, the only thing I have been able to do is to restart either Firefox or IE (it happens on both for me) and wait a few minutes.

    It doesn't appear to be a traffic volume issue. Any ideas as to what this could be?

    Me three. It appears to be fairly independent of browser, OS, connection speed or memory.

    This has been happening for most of this last week.

    --- also, keep the "cookie jar" cleared out, "files and offline content deleted, and don't be afraid to hit the left mouse button --- one click gets you into "slow load" mode, second gets you out, third back in, even "n" out, odd "n" in --- the "doorbell's" got a problem, misses "end of string" or something --- jostling it like an obnoxious door to door salesman sometimes works, sometimes doesn't.

    Cursor on the forum, thread, whatever item you're after; click the left button; PF balks; hit it again --- cancels the action; hit it again for another try; continue until you get a response that is at whatever speed you've come to expect from your server. Klar?
