Sloooow forum?

OK. Let's try this again and copy it this time in case I get thrown again

Is anyone else having problems with the forum today? Such as slow page loading, not being able to get here (initially), refresh button not working... and now, losing a post because the page won't load?

A few years ago I had to turn of my router (I think) to generate a new ISP addy. Something about a forum I belonged to must have started associating my numerical addy with a spammer's addy..... something like that.
Is that what's going on now? This is driving me nuts. It's happening on all three of my computers, but only here.

Or are one of you mods messin' with me today

I have alot of problems getting here sometimes, I just blame it on my oldish computer and slowish internet. I don't really know any better though. I'm not literate, it's DH's department.

Sorry, pacanis, not messin' with you. I haven't had any difficulties with this site...and I have a coal-burning computer.

I am having a really hard time navigating this site today.
The pages just sit there until IE tells me the page won't load.
Very frustrating.

That does seem unusual, pacanis, but I'm not a computer weenie. With any luck, someone who has that kind of knowledge will happen along. Hang in there.

However it works out, every time you post, I get to see that beautiful doggie in your avatar.

I think I'm OK now..... Time will tell.
I rebooted my router and got right back on here.

And thanks for the comp on Petra, Katie.
Here's a real test.... a crappy cell phone pic I just took and emailed to myself to see if I can upload it here

My old avatar's head is resting on my foot, so I can't move right now and get a real camera
