Bradford Carrot Festival

Pull up a chair and grab a cup of Java for a cozy chat about what's on your mind and what's happening in your neck of the woods. This is a strictly for fun non-gardening topics.

Bradford Carrot Festival

It is too frustrating trying to post on this forum let alone add pics, so here is a link to my post on another forum.

Yeah the forum has been dead slow all week.

heh I never saw potato on a stick before.

50 years from now, someone will write a topic like this about it:
viewtopic.php?f=4&t=27106&hilit=carrot+on+a+stick

EDIT:
Actually it's so slow it's unusable.

I'm glad it's not only me finding the forum dead slow loading. I wonder what CG has going on that's loading up their servers; or what else they've got going on to slow the forum so badly. Still working ok, just painfully slow

1. The server is being used as a dump and then to FXP
2. It's hacked and being used as a dump
3. It's shared and the other part is being used as a dump
4. Their host needs to update the two 56K modems they have

EDIT:
\FOund a few more things that will slow it down:

These other companies share the same IP as this one:
Number Domain / Host Functions
1. www.homemakers.com [Whois]
2. www.more.ca [Whois]
3. www.canadiangardening.com [Whois]
4. www.ellecanada.com [Whois]
5. www.styleathome.com [Whois]

In addition, it's a Bell IP. Bell has some very major constant lag. For those who follow CRTC proceedings, "Bell can't handle the B/W demand of Canadians"

So there you have it.
