    I have been trying to use Photobucket to upload some pics
    It seems so slow, and it keeps stopping and logging out
    Anybody experiencing this :-?

    Hmmm, I think they are having issues. Just logged in to my account and it can't display the images correctly. Getting most of mine coming up with the red X in the corner. Some pages aren't loading correctly either...

    Seems to be OK for me
    But that could be 'cos I'm on Mickey Mouse time :D

    Is it your own broadband that is slow perhaps?
    Are any other sites slow to respond ?

    Daft as it seems, the rain affects the BT lines between us and the exchange and we usually get cut off during storms !

    Interestingly Titans Mickey Mouse image didn't load the first time I opened this thread, and only appeared when I hit refresh.

    I still think they are having issues. I'm on 30mb fibre too (waiting for my freebie 60mb upgrade).

    30mb? 60mb? Am I the only one in the world who can't even get 3mb? :(( X(
    You wouldn't believe I live less than a hundred yards from the local exchange!

    Try pulling the tin can at your end to make the string a bit tighter .....


    I've yet to see double figures and average around 6mB until it rains although BT are rumoured to be upgrading the exchange to infinity in the near future.
    And there was me feeling sympathetic :p
