I'd like to inquire as to just how fast and successfully others find signing on to the AAVSO's Website and forums.
I have a very high speed server and connect virtually instantly to every other web site/forum I visit on-line and I have many. But in the case of the AAVSO site my quickest connection time is rarely less than 10 seconds, with 20-30 being much more common and there are even numerous occasions when the connection simply times out.
I've been advised several times by HQ that this is likely a problem involving my service provider, however since this happens ONLY with my connecting to AAVSO I find this difficult to accept. So, I'm asking others if they might post their estimated connection times just to see if the problem is indeed isolated to just me.
