    Hey Adam,

    Good to see that the text cutoff situation appears to be fixed now.

    But what about speed?

    I swear, Wi-Fi helps a _little_ but these forums are still way, WAY slower than they used to be before that major forum update deal some months back.  Is there anything that can be done about that via HTML coding or is it just a problem with the forum software?

    Just FYI, I also noticed that when my _iMac_ (a quad-core, mind you) gets a little under load (nowhere close to 200% CPU) and a little close to its RAM ceiling (maybe over half the free memory), I can actually see typing slowdown!  I mean sure, Flash video might not be helping (even if the video isn’t playing at the time), but…it’s like…telnet from the dialup years!

    Anyway, just thought I’d let you know.  If there’s any way to improve the speed (and lower the battery consumption) for mobile users, that would help a lot.  Thanks.
