Yes, the site was very busy over the weekend as well, it slowed right down to a halt.  It also depends on which browser you use when you go in.  My IE drops dead after the first few minutes, but it has been doing that for a couple of years.  Now with the surfeit of advertising, IE handles even worse.  I'm not sure how this new business model is going to help PB, with all us little guys leaving once we have taken back all the images we want to keep.  Their advertiser sure won't be seeing the traffic they once saw.

And keep your fingers crossed that Imgur isn't bought out by You Know Who.
Thank you paintnut2 for my pretty siggies!

My tinypic seems finally to have gone toes up, so I tried Imgur.  The only problem I had was finding out how to upload and I worked that out as evidenced by my hot shot post.  Thanks for the recommendation.
