Jeffrey Richter is coming to Atlanta and will be presenting on ASP.NET on 2/20/2006 at the MS Offices.Space is limited so you must register now at http://www.clicktoattend.com/invitation.aspx?code=106837.
Has anyone else noticed (complained) about the current ASP.NET forums, ever since they upgraded their version of Community Server ? I've basically stopped visiting them since they take so long to load in FireFox, even when coming back to a page in another tab that's already been loaded. The next page links also seem to take 2 clicks for some reason (they don't in IE) -- and I don't know what else is broke since I just can't bring myself to visit them anymore. Sure I could use IE, but I like FireFox and it is what I have up and running, and I've never seen any other site that responds so poorly like this. I also can't say I really like the updated "look" all the much period, and even in IE its obviously slower than it ever used to be.
