I think that is unfair matt12. I suppose it is a matter of taste. I quite like it.

Yes, this site takes longer to load but as broadband takes over from dial up, content can be richer. For the internet to move forward new technologies must be embraced and we have to stop pandering to those who wont change from their 800*600 screens and 56k modems.

In 2003 only 22% of home users were on broadband. It's now up to 89%.

I bet in 2003 the site felt slow to most. I certainly remember waiting ages for images to appear.

As for the forums? Yes, they are quieter now but if you go back a couple of years most of the content was junk, people attacking LeeD, spam or just general bitching of other peoples products.

It is a shame that some of the posters from those times no longer post, especially some of the team as there were some very informative posts.
