Yep, that's it.***PL*** wrote:Could be the way you access the forums, because I did notice something unusual this morning!Weehawk wrote:Not for me, they're not.***PL*** wrote:The forums are perfectly fine...
If I use a link specified in an email notification about a prior topic, I click on that link and it does take a while to load and in this case prompted me for UserID & pwd???
However, if I use my bookmark, which I will do 99% of the time, http://forums.marpirc.net/ then it will immediately load the main forum page with no login required!
I had thought that my bookmark was to "forums.marpirc.net" all along and I was getting redirected to "www.marpirc.net", which I had noticed. (The forum must be at www.marpirc.net\index). Sure enough, my bookmark is actually to "www.marpirc.net", probably for over a year since I got this computer. When you start out on "www." all the links inside you click stay on "www.", whereas if you start on "forums." all the links stay on "forums.". It seems to currently be much more responsive on "forums.".
That solves my problem temporarily with the forum, and might even give somebody troubleshooting another clue as to what's causing the delay with everything else.
