let me start by stating that I am not at all a computer dude. I have been using this forum from the same computer and location for maybe six months. When I try to use it now I get a message saying that I can't access the site for anywhere from 3-60 seconds. I wait. try again. samo samo. It seems to be getting worse and I don't know what I'm doing wrong. This forum has been invaluable in getting my scooter going and I appreciate all of you. If its a matter of financial support I have no problem with that at all, let me know where/how and how much and I will get it to you as soon as I can. If its operator error (very good possibility) please let me know what I'm doing wrong. Let me know how to get some bucks to you all either way as I know this has to be costing you, and as I said before, I'm not sure I would have gotten my scooter going without your help. Thanks

PS I looked at FAQ and did not see this covered

Well, that stinks you are having an issue. I am on this site throughout the day, and I am not having any of the issues you are reporting. Initially, I would say it is something on your end. It is really hard to tell what "it" could be from where I am, but here is a list of possible culprits:
- You have to many items access the internet from your device and it is slowing down your connection
- Too many tabs or browser sessions open at the same time
- Your PC cannot handle the load because of other items open
- You have a malicious software on your PC trying to redirect your request
- WiFi having trouble (might even be unseen trouble such as interference)
- Internet service provider is having issues

I'm sorry I cannot help you much, but I have been in IT for over 20 years, so you can at least trust my evaluation.

The web host also did a migration from one server to another recently on Jan. 28th, if you were trying to access the site during the migration, there may have been some issues. The migration is complete, please let me know if you are still having problems.

Thanks for responding john. It worked today so maybe it was transient in nature, also I live out in the MON so it could easily be on my end. I was kinda freakin because I do count on you alls expertise. Freak that I am I am working my way thru the old posts and find alot of stuff that is good to know. I was also sincere in the money thing. I don't have pay pal or whatever, but I do have a credit card if I can donate something that way. This has to be costing you some bucks and I don't mind doing my part, Let me know
