Slow Computer Access To Site

Is it just me and my computer or are there
others experiencing this difficulty.
Do I need Pentium IV?

It might be your service provider. Lots of shake outs in the dot com/telecom/bandwidth provider areas, with some High profile companies going bankrupt or listed as "going concern" by analysts. Some people on this board lost service for several days! So, while it could be your computer, it could be a lot of other links in the chain.

The site is good accessible and is fast enough in the Netherlands...So I think that the problem has to be either your compu, your host or your web connection...

It could also be your modem or phone line. There is a speed test that I use to check my connect speed. It's at http://www.zdnet.com/feeds/cgi/framer/hud0002500/www.zdnet.com/cc/bandwidth/speedtest.html

My cable modem has been running only at ISDN speeds lately (120 kbps or so) but it seems fast enough for most web sites, including this one. If you're running a 56K modem, your computer very likely isn't the bottleneck. You don't say what kind of computer you have but I noticed only a little difference upgrading from a pentium 133 to a pentium III-650, at least in terms of text pages loading. Now, if you're running a 386 or 486 class machine, I'd say it's time to upgrade. My CPU was less than $600 at a computer show.

I use the traditional dial up with no problems (56k).
You'll get a kick out of this Robert R. I'm still using a 266.

This site experiences fewer problems than most others I've been to. If you think you're slow, sometimes I log in using a Macintosh LC475 with 8 megs of ram. How's that for ancient?

sometimes slow

My experience is that sometimes it can be slow
to read all the data. Some news sites can be like that.
It could be anything. I have DSL.
Hang in there!

Actually, surfing the web is not so expensive...my addiction concerning the www mercedesweb makes surfing more expensive. The rates per hour are pretty fair though.
