Well you'll just have to wait your turn

I guess rebooting my router fixed me up. I'll have to remember that. I got a new router when I got a laptop a few weeks ago. It must be tempermental
But that still doesn't explain why it was only happening here.....

i have problems from time to time. not loading quickly, nor fast going from page to page. haven't lost any posts lately though.

usually helps if i just reboot the puter.

Do yourself a favor and delete your cookies and internet files every time you close your IE. Better yet, get Firefox and set it to do it for you every time you close it. Sometimes if you get chronic slow downs on the Internet (effecting most sites you go to not just one), it will pay to re-boot your router. I re-boot mine once a month or so just as a regular practice. I just go to its menu page in my browser and tell it to re-start.
Sometimes just closing IE and re-opening it works, sometimes you have to re-boot your computer to solve the problem. This is because no program is perfect, and sometimes one of the lines of code will get 'stuck' in your computers memory or processor function and slow either the program or the entire computer down.
Think of a gear getting stuck, and the re-boot is you whacking on it with a wrench to free it back up....

Beautiful pic of Petra pacanis! I sooooo love dogs!!!!

As for the slow forum, I usually find it is my internet connection that is hosed. I disconnect and reconnect and the problem is usually solved by doing that. Hope it gets better for ya!

You caught us, pancanis - the Mods and Admins are so bored with nothing else to do around here that we get together each night (usually around midnight) and make up a list of 10 users we're going to mess with the next day.

All kidding aside - I have the same problems from time to time.

I knew it! Everybody's out to get me
You guys are probably giving me extra cookies whenever I come here
Not that there's anything wrong with extra cookies

Thanks sattie

At any rate, everything seems to be working alright here this morning.
