The loading times of the main page and the forum page, it is taking way too long.

Sometimes the forum is slow for me, but the homepage is always lightning quick http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

loading times of 17+ and 16+ seconds (twice) respectively on a consistent basis is a bit ridiculous.

Nah, it's just very busy sometimes. I often get load times like that for just the reply window at some of the times I post here. I think you've just hit a busy period.

6mb cable

yes, ubi is the only website that loads slowly.

I dont use IE, on my mac I use safari/firefox and on my pc I use firefox exclusively.

IE, on a pc, is for people that like viruses/spyware/etc.. on a mac, it is useless.

because this problem ONLY shows itself on this forum, I doubt it is a problem with mozilla, this problem also is evident in Safari. I used firefox so I could show the time in the bottom of the page.

Anyway, for anyone interested, the board seems to be working faster now, perhaps UBI just needs more bandwidth.

I've always been meaning to get Firefox..... finaly did it after reading this post.. it reminded me... http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_razz.gif .... I installed a few plugins and it runs great... the timer says it takes 2 seconds or less to load those same pages... that much for threads too. Seems the General Discussion page loads it 1.4 seconds.

I do have caching turned off, that may also be a cause of it.

I also have a few extensions installed, including fasterfox, which puts that neat little timer in the bottom of the screen, it does a great job on every website, except this one.

I should have noticed that was on a Mac!
I don't have that problem (OS 10.4.6).
I like that Firefox shows the page load time..
I tried Camino which is really fast, but otherwise not real compelling over safari (same as the other browsers)

BTW, I installed boot camp (20" duo iMac 256m video) and IL2 Kicks butt - faster than my 3.1GHZ pc with way overclocked 9800 pro.

This post "Made on a Mac" - that also does Winbloze!

I installed XP on my macbook pro too, and IL2 does run very well, much better I suspect than most dedicated computers from some of the regular posters on this board that bash mac...

AND, firefox does not automatically display teh laoding times, you have to install an extension called fasterfox that is supposed to speed page laoding times by changing some settings in firefox.

I believe it's a combination of bandwidth and server load. It's intermittent and you will occasionally see these forums running very slow. Also once or twice a week you my find them unavailable for a few minutes while a reboot or other minor maintenance occurs.
