Wanna complain? Aside from the "quotes" being unavailable, or the "portfolios" being down frequently - are you getting tired of the excessively lengthy page-loading times, or the "HTTP 101/ Server Too Busy" messages, or the "connection with server cannot be established" messages, or the posts that get lost in cyberspace because the "Submit" button glitched out?

"Server too busy" for what? The unexpected traffic? Are the servers undersized, then? No hesitation at the Yahoo sites, or the RB sites, or the sites or the ClearStation sites. Can we someday hope to have as reliable a technology here, as at those (mostly free) sites?

Have been willing to extend the benefit of the doubt when these probs. began (re-)appearing 2 weeks ago. Just figured that with people off work for the holidays, the extra traffic load was slowing things down. Come on, people at TMF - you've had some time now to get this worked out - and everyone's back at work, so it can't be that.

TMF, we are your legions of loyal users. Are we not deserving of some explanation, TMF? Like some big banner across the top stating that you know there is a problem, or that new servers are being installed, or that "we're sorry, due to the increased popularity of the Fool, which has taken us totally by surprise and caught us unprepared, we can no longer furnish the kind of web-browsing experience to which you have become accustomed". Any little tidbit would be helpful, TMF. Actually, we may be very understanding, if we only knew what the heck was going on.

Anyone wishing to second this desire for info. is welcome to add to thread at "Improve the Fool"

Or, maybe if enough people "recommend" this post, it will get noticed by TMF. And maybe, just maybe - someone from the TMF Techie Dept. will reply.

Still hoping.
