I've been getting timed out since day 1! Even mid reply to posts...... Might be something to do with your firewall, as It never happens to me at home.
Edit: it happened as I typed this reply!
I've now gone through & sorted it to the way I like it. My only real moan now is the new visuals, and that's only because it now looks like a forum and not like what I'm actually supposed to be doing right now....
I do like them in every other respect.
Having had a try on wind-up last night I can assure those of you that think things have slowed down that even if you are on the worst broadband connection in recorded history it's not a problem! Granted that machine is a diferent cookie to this one, so I got the full whack of the new site last night.....eventually!
An other observation about having the community bit totally minimised is that new members & their opening questions may be missed by the majority if everyone has that section shrunk. I know this is probably a simple question with a PITA solution, but hows about anyone with a post count of 1 (i.e new) gets the post mirrored on that section - means people could be "found" in the time honoured tradition & their questions answered in an appropriate section, but people can also introduce themselves "officially" in the way I assume that section is designed to do.
Q for the site techs, if I minimise the scrolling pic bar, does it stop the need for it to download the pics, or does that happen in the background whether minimised or not? Most of the avatars are small and now in my local cache anyway, but at 3.1k
/s flat out, and with Windows inevitably trying to update itself in the background the last thing I need is a steady stream of half meg jpgs......
