    Lately, interaction with POA has been more painful than usual...

    It is slower than crap, the login popup I can watch loading a pixel at a time. Typing anything has a visible lag in when it appears on the screen.

    I did a ping check, and it keeps timing out. A google ping is averaging 15mS.

    What gives?

    It all is fine on this end. Reduce your meth and coke usage and it will return to normal for you.

    “Login pop up”?!? I don’t think I’ve “logged in” to PoA in like years.

    I don't have the persistent log in. When I clear out the cache it gets lost anyway.

    No, I swear PoA must be hosted in an as yet un-found server in Hillary's basement.

    So apparently it's just me. Any technical things to check?

    No, Chrome. I also tried Opera, cleared out temp files. Pinging other URLs produces pretty short latencies.

    If that were true then the proper response would be format me:

    of course it isn't true and we are left with paflyer being slow on POA

    If you have nothing serious to contribute to the thread, why don't you go bother someone else.

    I haven’t experienced any slowdowns. I mainly use Safari. What are you running it on, hardware wise?

    Had a VIC 20 before the 64. Think that was the nomenclature.
