    I don't know why. But I'm not the only one having this problem. Is it something to do with my internet connection? 'cause I can connect to other websites properly, but I have a hard time loading a page properly on GBAtemp. It usually results in a "Page timeout error" or something like that.

    Any solutions? Or know the reason why?

    Yeah, I'm having trouble, too. I keep getting Network Timeout Errors as well.

    The new server provider is having network issues. When I spoke to Costello yesterday he said at least one of their routers are down. Plus stuff is still being moved to the new server. All should be back to normal soon.

    There was a short instance where GBAtemp was down and I don't know if that was just me. I forgot to check http://downforeveryoneorjustme.com/ and I actually finished Shin Getter Robo vs. Neo Getter Robo during that time, so it wasn't that bad. Er, the down time wasn't so bad, Shin Getter Robo vs. Neo Getter Robo was kickass.

    So it isn't just me... It has been really slow for the past 3 days for me. Kept on checking internet speed, and today, the board just went offline.

    I hope that once we get to a new server, the system won't be too different. It'll be really hard to rebuild certain threads (eg. Cheat Discussion, the MENUdo thread...)

    Moving to a troubled server provider. Sounds like a choice choice.

    Yeah it's back to normal. Of course, it's still not fast but I never expect it to be.

    aaaahhhhh I new it wasn't just me. I was loading youtube just fine and I couldn't understand y it was slow here. I assumed it was because there were too many people on the forum.
