Forum Tune Up

Thanks to all the folks that have the animated avatars and huge signatures! I went to UserCP and turned them off and there's a noticable improvement in performance. Of course, it could be the "AMG" logo I slapped on the computer case too . . .

I've been running with signatures turned off for ages. I used to just kill annoying avatars selectively using the Adblock Plus extension in Firefox, but now I have them shut off entirely, too.

Try the "low graphics - Dialup style" from the Quick Style Chooser at the bottom of the page. Lean and mean!

They don't bother me, the sigs on this site are pretty small. People usualy say something to if they get to large.

You need a faster interweb connection, throw another hampster in that magic box under your desk!

Threads load for me faster than I can change the channel on my TV. Sounds like your internet connection is too slow or your computer is outdated....

Can I interest you in a fine Sony PC??

Although, It could be that your like 12,000 miles from the MShop server; being in Hawaii and all. Nothing you can do about that I guess.
