Just thought it was funny that with geocaching being such a "techie" thing, why would GC.com be running on Windoze? You'd think they'd want to use a real operating system. Wink

From the GC forums about the recent update and why the site was down and now it's painfully slow.

Code:

I'll elaborate on my "site is slow" comment a little. Microsoft had 12 hotfixes for us to apply and surprise of surprises, they aren't working right.

Until we're able to sort out the issue I'm afraid you'll experience various levels of site performance from "slow but usable" to "omg shoot me". Everything is dropped here until we're back online 100%. Thank you for your patience.

heck, I coulda told you that... GC.com has been slow as heck forever... That's why I avoid it at all costs.. I would upgrade to premium there if I knew they were going to switch hosting to Linux Servers...
