Just want to mention, if you install Firefox, your current browser will still be on your computer.
I know some guys worry about stuff like that (guys like me) so I thought I would mention this.

It might be your browser. I use firefox and it's the best all around browser in my opinion. Plus it's free so you might as well try it out.
If the new browser doesn't fix it then you have a problem with your computer. When it freezes is it completely unresponsive? Or can you still move the mouse or if you hit the power button it will snooze? If it is unresponsive you need to bring it back and have it fixed. You also may have spyware, i had this problem. What antivirus are you using?

Iīve got a nine year old computer, one that Moses threw out, and this site runs just fine on it, so
do all the others except BangShift.com.
For some reason I canīt do long posts on BangShift.com.
The only improvement I made recently was to use GoogleChrome all the time, IE was really pissing me off
crashing every day, and I kept losing my cursor leaving me with nothing to click with.

|crownver||I've got a Telus land line with a wireless router so I can sit in the living room with my laptop. Had Telus come in today and upgrade my internet from 6 Mbps to 25. Huge difference. What made me do it we got a couple of students staying downstairs now and they run 2 Iphones and 2 laptops, and the wife has a laptop now too. Sometimes computer was crawling. Cost me about $60 month instead of $45 but well worth it.|

IE (Internet Explorer) runs a lot of plugins and filters in the background that at times it can not read the scripts when loading certain sites.
Either stick with IE but disable all plugins until you find the right plugin that is affecting the slow page load. OR download Chrome or Firefox which runs less plugins and smooth on most forums.

Thanks Bill...I'll keep that in mind.

I don't know, I don't think it's kids on the net, I live in a major City in Ontario so I would think that everybody would have the same service...right?

Thanks Bill, it sounds like I should stay where I feel comfortable. I tried a few other sites a while back and it just seems to be a different culture on so many of them. There was one that I still do visit once in a while...it's a Pontiac site, it's OK but doesn't have as much technical information as this site has.
By you giving me your interpretation of HAMB...I'm sure I'm fine here.

|poncho62||We used to find that it would be good all day until the kiddies got home from school and hopped on the computer....then, it would bog down. I fought with Rogers for 6 months until they decided to put up another tower about a mile from us...old tower was 5 miles away. Its fast now, but expensive....$90 for 20gig of data......$10/gig after that. We dont download or watch YouTube in this house.|

I'm with Roger's as well...I had them check it out and was told everything was fine...Of coarse...but this is the same provider that when my land line doesn't work any more (happened every Spring for the past 7 years) they told me that it was because I had moisture in the walls of my house and it was shorting out the phone lines...nothing else, no other wiring, just the phone lines (the previous owners used Bell and I've heard that a few people had similar problems when they switched to Roger's), cost me $100 every Spring to have a land line, so I went to portables that I plugged into the main line coming in for the phones...No problem so far...but anyway, I digress, they said everything was fine...a few other people in the neighborhood however claim their service through Roger's is slow as well...I don't know. I don't want to complain but it does seem to be this site that is effected more than others...could it be Band Width? Like I say I don't know much about this stuff but it seems like when more people are on...like today (I don't know how many people are on today but it does seem to happen on Week Ends more than during the week), it's real slow.

The HAMB is another hot rod site.......
Who is your provider?...I am on Rogers cellular and before they put up a new tower near us, the net was slow as heck....kept timing out.Just wondering if it might be your provider
