Did you get Ad Block Plus? It seems without it, its still slow, no matter the browser

Re: DS running slow for anyone but me

It IS DS that is slow. Downloading anything isn't going to change that unfortunately. I have noticed that this goes in spurts. Like some ppl experience it while others don't..then later it is switched. A couple of weeks ago I could not log on to DS all day long! I was even getting email notices of PMs, but "I" couldn't even get logged on.

Hopefully this will resolve itself soon. I am easily frustrated too and I was going to throw the laptop out of the door, but dh wouldn't let him. It is brand new so...

Anyway.. just saying that I can relate!

Help please?
Are we going to have to keep dis-enabling Java every time we get on?

Re: DS running slow for anyone but me

It's been so slow for me too these last couple of days. It's been driving me freakin' nuts! My daughter hasn't slept more than 2 hours these last 2 nights and I"m going insane!! Who am I supposed to vent to now????

Is it Java that gives it problems then? Because my computer had a Java update like 2 days ago and now diaperswappers is so slow! Maybe that is the problem? I dunno. Fix it someone! Please!

I just downloaded it and now DS is working great and I didn't have to disable java. So it must be all the stinking ads slowing it down.

I have been having problems for DAYS! It's a pain when you HAVE to get on to reply to pm's etc. Otherwise I've just been staying away. Seriously, I can click on a page here, then go open another screen and flip through a dozen sites, check the weather, read the news, answer a couple emails, then come back only to see it's STILL not loaded

Re: DS running slow for anyone but me

Yeap, day 2 of slow crap here....surely downloading a new browser and ad blocker isn't the ONLY answer?? I'm browsing every other site perfect. I use Opera with ad blockers, not IE or Netscape or anything. Surely there's another solution!! Maybe this will post in about half an hour..but I won't know! I'll be stuck loading for the next week.

Angry Re: DS running slow for anyone but me

One of these new little things has slowed everything down- I would gladly trade the emotion icon and all these crappy ads for DS to work properly again!
It's funny that they went to all that effort to get the post count up with that contest and this will probably make that all even- we can't even use DS!!!!!!
How many times can we post when it takes like 10 minutes for one stinkin post! We are busy mommies- we need our 5 minute DS fixes to be worthwhile!
I haven't been on a fraction as much and I usually have 2 windows open so they can both be loading. I tried my DSL direct connection instead of IE, and disable java too and it didn't make any difference.

THIS SUCKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I didnt believe it until I tried it myself.. but one of my friends has been telling me all day DS was fine for her and I gave in and tried it
OMG! This was p*#&$ing me off! I went and downloaded Ad Blocker Plus and no more lag - at all...DS is loading super quick now!

Go try it mamas! It is all those ads that are slowing the loading of the pages down!
