Why does PF load so slow lately?

    Loading the mainpage is not slow, but clicking the general discussion tab always takes soooooo long to load. Whats going on, is it just me or does anyone else load so slow too? :confused:

    It's been painfully slow for me...to the point of often NOT loading at all many times this week. I don't even know if I can get a reply to post right now...tried once already, but it got "stuck."

    Seems good now.

    I've noticed there seems to be a correlation between the number of people viewing GD and how slow it loads. The other day I wasn't able to get it to load and noticed that it said there were forty some odd people viewing it.

    I've had this problem sporadically. And when it happens firefox decides to open forumdisplay.php in bluefish. Not that I mind viewing PF source, but I wasn't planning on it.
