Am I going crazy am I the only one that is trying to connect to this forum in Win Explorer and its so slow that it times out no matter what computer I'm on. Then I get onto Firefox and connects right away but most time with it cant see photos grrrrrrrrrrrrrr this is weird, any other page I try to open google, FB anything its instant but this one its all the time. Anyone else in sae boat or just me?

I think it is just you Tim, cause I am posting this message through Internext explorer.

Any specific time of the day you are experiencing this problem?
Over the last few weeks or so when I'm trying to access the forum during the evening hours (GMT +1) initially there is a good response time but after having read a few posts all of a sudden I get time outs as well.

I don't have Firefox installed so I can't tell you whether it's Win Explorer or some other issue causing this but knowing the time of the day you are having trouble might help?

Try downloading Google Chrome. I find that browser blazingly fast compared to IE and I have no issues with pictures not showing up.

I've been in the same boat for the past day or so. It's not the server itself, but the DNS lookup that's failing. Once I've refreshed 2-3 times and the domain name resolves, everything runs along swimmingly.

I don't know what ISP the OP is using, but I'm on Cox out here in Vegas. At least relating to my problem, it could be an issue with COX's DNS server, or an issue with the nameserver for MyCockpit.Org feeding bad/incomplete data when queried.

Just to follow up, I haven't seen any DNS issues at all with MyCockpit since this morning. These things tend to work themselves out quite often; looks like this one did.
