I am having no noticeable difference in load (access) times or other problems. After the board is up and running for a few more days I'll enable the GZIP function and this will help with load times for those that have a 56K connection.
Also, the board can be accessed by going to http://forum.bdcnutrition.com as it is a subdomain. This will eliminate any of the frames that are associated with going through the main site for entrance.
As a side note, the chat login is also a subdomain and can be accessed by going to http://chat.bdcnutrition.com.
