The main forum page freezing now does not occur.
However, I have noticed that high CPU usage (100% for me) and slowdown may occur when browsing the club.cdfreaks.com site with the default Beta skin until the browser crashes.
The problems only seem to occur with the current Beta skin (the forum default). The Beta skin seems to be quite defective.
I would recommend using any of the other skins as the default club.cdfreaks.com skin (or at least for Internet Explorer 6).
