Is anyone else having an issue with the site loading and running at a snail's pace? I normally use FF but, even if I switch browsers everything takes forever to load, change pages, etc. It seems to be the only site that is giving me an issue..others run fine. It's getting really frustrating.

I've been finding it a bit slow yesterday and today. I'm running IE7. Other sites are running quite fast.

Very slow for me - I feel your pain. In fact, it's been slow for a couple of other days. Other Web sites cruise right along so I know it's not my 'puter!

It was running very slowly this morning and just before lunch today the website wouldn't even come up.  But now it's fine.

It's running horribly slow and timing out for me.  This is really frustrating, but I'm glad to know I'm not the only one having this problem.

Yea, I am running into the same problems. Pages won't load, timing out, really slow. I assume changes are in the works...usually when I have trouble connecting it is followed by some sort of upgrade.

I couldn't even log on earlier. It's running really slow right now. I'm not having trouble at any other site so it has to be PBS. I've even tried both IE and FF.

It's been slow for me too on two different computers.  It's been very aggravating.

I had no problems on Sunday but it was a nightmare earlier today.  Seems a bit better right now.
