    Alright! Giggety!
    Hopefully this might help you at least pinpoint this problem...not too sure what else you could do. Is it possible that Ad Block or something has been told to block something that is important or needed?

    Don't think so because it seems to be working fine on other websites and forums with the same filters in place. As close as I am to the actual server it should be super-snappy regarding performance most of the time, but like gruven said above it could be a bad router between me and the server so the data is having to go the long way around to reach me.

    update

    It was beginning to appear that the sluggishness issue was resolved by changing dns servers on my router, but last night (Friday, approx 10:40 pm, CST) it started happening again, so apparently it isn't nameservers related.

    Are you using Firefox, Chrome or Opera? If so try using their noscript extension and only allowing the scripts you need.
    What do we want?
    Time machines!

    When do we want 'em?
    Doesn't really matter does it!?

    Firefox, but I tried noscript last night and it didn't help. I might play around with it again later today to see if there was something that I might have missed.

    Nope, tried it again, but still no luck. I really do wish that I could adapt to NoScript because it truly is a great utility in that it does what it does so very well. It's just that I don't like the layout of the menus and the configuration options. I've installed it at least a couple dozen times over the years but have never been able to stick with it for more than 2 days at a time. Maybe during the next dozen or so attempts to adapt to it one of them will stick.

    Regarding the issue at hand, it still might be something to do with my ISP because the sluggishness seems to happen mostly during peak evening hours, and that's when my ISP's super-duper DSL service has been dropping all the way back to dial-up speeds as noted in another thread. I'll keep an eye on it for the next few weeks and will report back with anything that might be of use in diagnosing the issue. Otherwise, I'm going to assume that it's an issue with my provider.
