I've been tracing the slow activity of APUG and the problems, and they all appear to be coming from the internet. I am on cable, hard wired and am able to trace the problem back to the cable server/router or to the internet. It gets a timeout, bad signal or no response from APUG. The bad signal freezes my browser, but this is VERY rare. Usually I get a timeout error, or a message from my cable provider that there is a problem with the site "apug.org".
