[This might be related to HSG's timeout problems?]

So since the new design was introduced, with ads, I have been experiencing MEGA lag issues here on Craftster.
The header seems to load okay - except for the graphic ad on the right and before the posts, which takes what seems like forever to pop up - and then the actual messages themselves take just as long!
I'm on an ADSL connection, and never had these kinds of problems before. I'm trying to do the right thing and actually load the ads and support the site, but I think I'm going to have to switch the ads off on my Firefox, because occasionally (by which I mean two or three times a day) I'll get timeouts from the lag being so bad.  Sad

I think I can fix it at my end, by switching it off, but I just thought you guys would like to know about the potential problem.

Hey there!  Sorry to hear that you're having issues with the site. Sad

Could you please post what operating system and version of Firefox you're using?
