I'd like to say "There was an upgrade?" but I was trying to get on when you were changing it over XD so I noticed. But yeah I haven't ran into any lag whatsoever yet.

Indeed, it has increased speed.

I'm torrenting right now, and my bandwidth is like dialup now. AA is the only site that loads worth a crap xD.

I think I noticed a slight increase in speed after the change, but nothing too memorable. The board has always been running smooth and fast for me (well as fast as australian internet goes anyway!).

Can you elaborate on the flaws and where it freezes (and how long it freezes for).

I've noticed that the pages never seem to finish loading.. Like.. Everything will be there, just, that, my browser keeps saying its still loading stuff.

I've had that happen before. Try clearing the browser cache and running CCleaner.

Heres the thing with CCleaner, It scares me. Theres so much that it wants to kill, i dunno what is safe to get rid of. I remember a friend telling me that after he ran CClearner, it raped his syetem, and a lotta his games and special stuff didnt work. I have a VERY customized PC, and, Dun wanna have to redo everything..

I use CCleaner almost every day and it doesn't cause any kind of a problem ...at least to me. It's quite harmless. If you are unsure of certain things that CCleaner wants to clear then just uncheck the check box in front of certain delicate subjects.

Regarding the topic...It's a bit faster, but just a bit.

The site has been running extremely slow for me for the last two days, in the time it took to load the index page I went to youtube, did a youtube search, clicked on a youtube video and fully buffered it before the index page even came up.

Only this site has been running slow for me.

Josh,

This site is still loading the entire page in under 3 seconds when under a load. There are a couple possibilities. I would recommend clearing the cache on your browser. Also, if there are any broken images (since many people are linking their images to photobucket) it's possible that it's slowing the rendering of the page.

If it's still loading slow, please PM me your IP at the time when it's slow so I can look into the log files and see if there is anything odd going on when it happens.
