Ehelldame, you're talking a lot about the speed of the board and the board being slow; I wonder if you realise that it isn't a case of speed or pages being slow to load, but of being unavailable entirely? It's almost like someone's completely removed the site from the internet or taken the domain name away. At least that's how it is here on this side of the pond (UK).
Additionally, it isn't just the forum that goes down. It's the main EHell site also.
