I feel your pain. I really do. It must be hard to do so many page views, replies, and changes to the SDMB, all while making the effort of trying to stay online. Your poor little 10 year old CPU has so much to do that I understand why it takes so long for me to get a page view, why my posts keep disappearing in a “This page cannot load” screen from IE, why I just can’t logon sometimes regardless of whether I’m using cable, DSL, or a plain old dial-up.
Oh, sometimes you’re fine. Like right now, I was able to load the front page and get a page view pretty quick. But, I then just clicked on Cafe Society - 47 seconds to load! Then I couldn’t log on to the thread at all!
You have my sympathies. I know you’re trying, and trying hard. It must be scary, seeing all those cheap gigahertz machines out there, wanting to take your job, all the while knowing that they could do a much better job at it, faster, and with less effort. I know you don’t want to give up your position here at the SDMB. But, sometimes, we just have to let go, you know?
I think it’s time to retire.
