I bought a new computer about 3 months ago it runs Vista and with it was a 7 update which I sent in got notification today that 7 has been released and is being shipped should be here in about 5 to 7 days. I am sure that I will be asking lots of questions I am old and not to up to date on this computer stuff. Following this thread with great interest. Thanks everybody.

Just purchased a new laptop yesterday with 7. I set up my network and internet so fast with my desk top I thought I must have done something wrong! With 2.1 GHZ and 4G ram it is faster than greased lighting. Except for one forum. Yep you guessed it this one! :rolleyes:

If money = speed maybe we should consider giving up some page size for speed.

Not sure that would solve anything. probably restricting the file size of allowable sigs in posts would, or eliminating them altogether. I have noticed early morning is when it bogs down if anytime. It seems pretty fast otherwise. I might ask them to move us to another server.
