    I am in China and can view the website fine
    But I have to type in a captcha before I can enter. I feel discriminated against and have called my local consulate officer to complain about your site.
    She hung up on me.

    For those of you wondering about the like button, I'm hoping it will make a return soon. I had to disable it in its current incarnation due to a possible security vulnerability caused by the overall software package, not the like button itself. I'm looking into other solutions and hope to have something up and running within a week or two.

    Ah, good to know. I cranked down the security settings a bit after that first day of chaos and it appears that enables captcha-based entry instead of blocking the user entirely.

    I want to check that it's just me....but is the site slow for anyone else the last few days? I think some of the ads are slaughtering my flash and it's causing some pages to really drag. I've had flash player crash multiple times in Chrome for me.

    I have my Adobe Flash turned off in Firefox, and I still frequently get "waiting for twinsdaily.com..." for half a minute at a time. Then at other times (such as now) it's fast enough to suit me. A few weeks ago I might have thought we were getting the overflow crowd from healthcare.gov, but that shouldn't be a problem now...

    Half a minute? Really? I haven't seen a page load longer than five seconds in the past two weeks.

    Anybody else?

    Just to add a bit more, a few weeks back when you made the changes it was gloriously fast. For whatever reason this week it regressed for me. It's not every time which is reminiscent of when the rollover ads were crushing me.

    Yes. When it's like that I usually check Yahoo News or some other big site to see whether it's a problem with my connection, but it's usually just TD being slow to respond.

    Feels way better now, for whatever reason.

    It seems to come and go. Over all it is waaaay better than before Brock did some tweaking.
