is this the slowest forum you know i have got the zzzzzzzzzzzzzzz sorry fell asleep will it was changing topic.
sorry it is so slow i hit the save button and nothing so i hit again still nothing but it came up twice.
slow i have seen faster snails, some body needs to throw another log on steam powered thing running the computer that end.
Keep working the unemployed need there benifits
just watched a snail go across the decking to the plants some 10 yards away,hes had a good feed and strolls back.Huuummm thats slow he waves as he goes buy and giggles at me still on the same pc forum page as i was on when he set out.
Ok,,,,,, I think the message has got through, no need for a blow by blow account of every 5 minutes.
This reminds me of a puter I had about ten years ago. God it was slow, but in those days it was fast. Dosen't time fly!!!
Parksy (speed test)

Speed test!! what do you mean speed test, nothing wrong with my broadband connection.
I thought all the old coal boilers had been replaced with new gas ones these days Steve, Anybody got a shilling!!
I wasn't suggesting that forum members test the speed of their broadband.
Damian and myself were discussing in another topic the slowness of the website.
Luckily for me the forum topics load time is only between three and five seconds, fairly normal. I mentioned that my Virgin Broadband connection is only the cheapo version, about 2mb while Damian's is running at around 18mb. If my broadband was of the same speed and capacity as Damian's this computer wouldn't need a mouse or keyboard - it would work by using telepathy!
I hit 'Save' in the other thread and then clicked to this thread then I entered a post which said 'Parksy (speed test)' which was all that I could think of at the time.
I think that the time elapsed between clicking Save on the other thread, switching to this one, typing my words, clicking Save on THIS thread and the post loading etc was about 1 minute 9 seconds.
If you take into account my useless two finger typing speed and less than perfect manual dexterity coupled by the relatively low speed of my own broadband connection then the 'loading speed' for me on this website is fairly normal.
That being the case if Haymarket webtechs can identify the difference between my set up and Damians or others who are experiencing very low forum speed they might be able to solve the problem
That explaines it then. Well done Steve, LOL (smiley face thingy laughing his head off while bending down) if you know what I mean LOL
