Marko, I am not too savvy about computers. What do you mean about browser? and How do I find out what I am using? Whatever it is it is fast..

I'm on Firefox--seems to be pretty speedy for me right now.

Firefox here too and it's fast, but then anything would be fast after dial up for so many long years.

Hi Marko

Speed seems to be excellent - any better and it would be instantaneous. I logged in 3 times, once with Internet Explorer, once with Firefox, and once with Google Chrome. Sure can't kick on the speed.

thanks for the feedback everyone.

pbpatti - a browser is the tool you use to surf the internet (like explorer, firefox, safari, chrome etc.)

I just got a 30-second log-on delay while it was 'transferring data from choices.trust.com', which seemed to be the ads below the top menu on the page maybe? At least, when that set of ads popped in, the data transfer message disappeared and things started moving again... Still on Firefox...

Hmmm very odd Cindy are you clicking on any ads? This should not happen as we don't use popups. But these ads are geographically based so different people see different ads based on location.... if you see an ad that concerns you and you locate the address of the ad (by right clicking on it...perhaps I can locate the source). If the source is indeed from one of our ads, I will block it.

I hate popups! but I have not seen one from our site in a good 5 years..
