ASP.NET Forums Really Suck in FireFox

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.

I would also like to say a great big THANK YOU to some other unnamed people that just go out of their way to help me, whether it be a simple but personal note of appreciation, an extra monetary donation, or help with extending the code and testing things -- you know who you are.  I would also like to say THANK YOU to my current client for allowing me to work on some of my own projects at times, and for right now being so very understanding and appreciative of the many extra hours I've put in that have really added up here lately.

Congrats to a new Atlanta MVP -- Brendon Schwartz

Congratulations to Brendon Schwartz for being made a new ASP.NET MVP !  Brendon is one of the founding Atlanta Regular Guys, which means he basically goes to just about every .NET related user group or other community event in town -- and basically runs half of them also.  Congrats Brendon -- you very much deserve it -- and Atlanta just got another much deserved MVP in you.
