Is Active Rain Slowwwwwwwwwwwww or What?

Real Estate Broker/Owner with Homes Arizona Real Estate LLC

Just a short post to find out if I'm the only one having this problem........I can't seem to "get to" the blogs to post a comment, and just moving around has been insanely slow this afternoon and evening. Perhaps someone else has already written a post, but I don't have the patience to find them.

I see right now there are 2143 online; however, earlier when I tried, there were only 800. Is there a problem that anyone knows about? Or, is it on my end?

A beautiful clear day it is in Arizona. No snow, but a bit cold. Everyone is getting ready for the Superbowl, the FBR Open is in town, and then there's Super Tuesday coming up. Tomorrow it is supposed to be in the 60's, so we plan to play some golf while we can.

So??? If anyone can read or comment on this post..........what's up with the Rain? Wow!! I just noticed that nothing shows on the right!!

Yep, guess I'll wait until then. The only thing that seems to work is to log on now, but then to get to blog posts another story. Thanks for dropping by to share y'all. ;-)

Slow on my end too - I'm sure the amount of people online at the same time cannot help the situation!

I have had problems all day as well. I couldn't even log in this morning until mid-afternoon! It seemed to get a little faster a bit ago but has slowed back down. I hope tomorrow is better! (And I am glad that it is not just me!)

Hi Teri,
I finally gave up and just shut down my computer.  Patience is not my long suit and it was driving me insane.

Teri - There was something on the news about an undersea cable being broken and that the resulting rerouting of the Internet traffic would really slow things down.

I'm on my way to go skiing (yeah!!) so I"m using my wireless connection so I thought that was the problem.  It sounds like a major network didn't have redundancy and is causing everyone problems not just AR.

I didn't notice it yesterday, but it has been extremely slow all day today. I thought it was my computer but it works great at other sites.

Felt slow to me... more importantly-

a) how was golf?

b) did you notice all the security in Mesa for the big shindig near Falcon Field? I'm assuming it was a private party for bigwigs as there were many small planes and so many stretch limousines that they closed off Greenfield.

Thanks everyone for your comments. I think as of today, Sunday, that things seem to be running faster. At least I hope so.............

Teri - I have noticed how slow it has been, especially yesterday and last night.  I know there wasn't that many people on it during superbowl.  It seems a little better this evening.

Candy, when I posted this, it was on Friday the 1st. It was like molasses..........

Thanks for commenting though.  I think it's fixed for now. ;-)
