ya know, I honestly haven't noticed a speed problem with it at all... and I'm on a DSL modem.
I'm operating in flat mode, I think. Yeah, it comes up with all the messages in a row... actually a bit faster, I thought versus the old one... Probably doesn't help I'm like 40 miles from the server. Or at least where the owner lives.
'66, 302-4bbl, Granada disk brakes, etc, etc...
I don't notice any difference in speed. Both are slow. But I did cut down the number of posts displayed per page (set in profile) from 100 to 50. Maybe that's why this works for me at the same speed as the old one? Only has to fetch half as many posts at a time.
I guess we asked for it, LOL. I hope it doesn't get the VMF bumped off of where ever it is running.

I think some of the slowness is due to the pictures embedded in users signatures, etc.
It has to lookup all the remote URLs to embed the picture. If users only used the
thumbnail pic in the profile, then at least users could disable it in their preferences.
I suspected it may have to do with the images. I haven't notice a difference on my 56K modem but I also run with out the images auto loading - helps my poor ol' Pentium II keep up in a Pentium IV/ Mac world.
Whizco, It was Teebone that became Tire-kicker! I'm still a newbie and have more posts! Boo! Perhaps the software knows more about us than we give credit... *G*
