Is this forum loading slowly for other people? RRS feed

  • Question

  • This forum has become unusable.  It takes (one window is still waiting after 5 mins) way to long to load anything from this forum.  Are others having the same problem.  This is the only site (actually all forums under .NET Framework Forums) which is slow.

    Help this is really poor!

  • It works fine for me (Europe, Poland). Links to posts from the outside tend tosometimes open slowly though - as in when I open links from google to posts on msdn.
