    I'm having a real problem accessing any TCF page with any speed at all. This is NOT happening with any other Web site I access. When I try to go to a TCF page, the browser says its waiting on idgtechnetwork.com and it waits and waits and waits to connect....sometimes taking a minute or more to get to the TCF page. I'm using the latest release of Firefox. It doesn't seem to be as bad with Safari. I'm on a Mac using OS 10.7.5. Any thoughts? This just started this morning...

    Working fine for me at this moment. Firefox 18 &Win8. I have had times when pages take forever to load at the same time that other sites are working fine. I am running allot of blockers on this computer so perhaps I am blocking what ever is the problem.

    It was super-slow for me this morning. Works fine now.

    I wonder if they use Word-Press to manage their site. There's been a recent update to Word-Press that has caused this kind of slow-downs for some sites.

    Are you talking WordPress.com or WordPress.org?

    Apparently they forked some time back.

    I don't know if I've ever encountered a site using the .org version, but I have encountered the .com version on several sites and what TCF uses must be something different because WordPress.com's blog/comment-handling software is absolutely atrocious.

    It would make TCF unusable for me.

    How are you running a Pentium II on a 12MHz board?

    The slowest one made was 233 MHz.

    I really know very little about WordPress, and have no idea whether org or com. I was just offering up that I knew of another site that was definitely WordPress-based (not sure of version) that was experiencing very slow response times following an upgrade.
