You guys really need to run a web page performance test some time :| Pingdom Tools
Is the site owned by face book or something?

Many forums do not score well on these tests because they're not (mostly) static websites....they're very dynamic based on how many people might be online at that moment in time & what they're all doing (and most forums are VERY busy right now given the number of bored people out there) as well as the load the server may be under with any other websites that share it's server.

GTAM performs just fine for me from a "everyday use" standpoint.

Another cycle forum I visit makes 1 request from its main page and uses less then half a meg, resolves 30 times faster.
This one uses 2.5mb and makes 126 requests with 30% of them going elsewhere. That's just to open the main page.

This site isn’t a life and death service provider (although the you can make an argument for that ) therefore it does not need to load at lighting speed.

I think it is working well. I have not had any issues with it.
Keep up the good work @Paul and the moderators. Thanks for doing your part so we have something to do to kill time.

I'm sure Paul would love it if you threw some cash at him.
Would it reduce the advertising to advertisers?
No worries,
I have become accustomed to the 50$ internet bandwidth surcharges & far be it from me to think a main page should be your navigation page and the advertising goes where the content is.
(y) Fine job Paul.

Does that mean you are not throwing cash towards the site?
Maybe they can adjust some users performance per profile, not saying how they should adjust yours.... ;) :ROFLMAO:
