    Anybody else have this issue? Occasionally, like a couple times a day, when I go to this site everything freezes up. Last about 30 seconds, then unfreezes and works normal. This is the only website that has this issue.

      It's not this site.
      It's the monkey porn you keep downloading :shakehead:

      Seriously though, never had that issue on this site.
      I have seen that this site uses more bandwidth than other sites. Perhaps if you have a weak wifi signal at the time of logging in, that could be an issue?

      Don’t know. I only tried safari. It’s about every forth or fifth time I visit the site everything freezes for about 30 sec or so. Doesn’t happen on any other site.

      Safari? So are you on a Mac or are we talking iPad/iPhone? When you b!tch, you need to be more specific.

      Try Chrome. It's a more robust browser.

        It’s a Safari issue. Safari is clunky. Use Chrime instead.

          Why should I need a "robust" browser to read a sports forum? This is the only site that does this, but yes I'm sure its a problem with my browser.

          Does this mean you're leaving the board?

          I would get rid of the clunky DNS server. Maybe try Google at 8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4 or Open DNS. They have room for traffic.
