Good luck with it! I'll play...

Couple of comments: the web site seems a bit slow, at least here on the US left coast. It could be something to watch. Also, might it be appropriate to have a separate Solaris section? Many of us are starting to dabble with it.

I added a Solaris section, but removed it later because I figured not many people posted Solaris issues on bsdforums ... I will re-add it.

A little slow on the other coast too.

I like the logo though.

I suppose a logo with "Spawn of Satan" would have been too racy... \ducks

Hmm, it's ok in the Netherlands, and it's a U.S. server :/
In any case, I'll see how it goes and fix stuff when/if necessary (e.g. get new hosting).

I am also finding it slow from NY.

That's nice that you have that thanks option--that's one thing about Ubuntu forums that I consider a nice touch.

Default Speed

The DNS Server has successfully been switched and things are beginning to properly propagate, so hopefully all of these speed problems have been resolved for everyone. Let us know if it is still slow for you.

Once I'm on the forums, it's fine. Getting there is still a little slow, but I suspect it's still propagating.

Ok, well, You can use the IP for now (http://76.162.25.203), It works very fast for me...

I will see if the DNS is still slow in the morning and fix it if necessary...

You uploaded a profile picture, not an avatar, a profile picture is intended to be a photo of you or something and only supposed to show on your profile
Look at my profile for an example...

To upload an avatar, go to your User CP and click "Edit Avatar" in the left menu, NOT "Edit Profile Picture".

Im not quite sure why is "don't panic" inserted in the logo? Something to do with kernel panic?

Way to go!

O.o

The joke is:

Quote:
In the novel, it is said that despite its many glaring (and occasionally fatal) inaccuracies, the Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy itself has outsold the Encyclopedia Galactica because it's slightly cheaper, and because it has the words "Don't Panic" on the cover.

What? You don't get out to the movies either? (It was made into a movie a few years back, and was just shown on Space a few months ago.)

Excellent message, though, for computer users everywhere. Don't you think?
