Gobo, I've been having weird stuff going on with my 'new posts' too - once I hit it, it never refreshes till the computer's been offline at least a couple of hours. *yikes!*

Try clicking on the button to the left that says "portal". That should help.

I'm having some weird things happen too. First off, there is a message saying "Hello BlueCat it appears that you have not posted on our forums in several weeks, why not take a few moments to ask a question, help provide a solution or just engage in a conversation with another member in any one of our forums?" (I've been on vacation) and secondly, there are all kinds of underlined links within the posts. I see this sometimes when I check the site from work, since I don't automatically sign in there, but have never seen that at home. I always found those links annoying, but it wasn't really a problem since you can just log in and they went away. I'll be unhappy if they are a new part of the website even when you're logged in though.

BC. this happens to me when I check it out (but not log in) from work too. Never got that message about chiming in more. Probably 'cuz I run my mouth plenty enough.

I have hit "new posts" and it tells me there are none also. Not often, though.

This site has become very s-l-o-w to load lately, and sometimes it won't load at all.

This is the problem I've been having lately. 2 or 3 times a week I can't get on at all, usually in the afternoon. Sometimes I can read threads, but then seem to lose the site when I try to post. Definitely something strange happening in the last few months. I have the same problem whether I use IE or Firefox.

I do believe Andy R is on it - sometimes these things just take time (well, money, which can take time!!!!). We sure have come a long way though. Those times the site is down I actually get some work done and manage to slay a dust bunny or two.

I think people sometimes forget, the site does not run itself. The folley of a server is no ones fault, it happens. Welcome to the internet...

I am glad for everyday we can log on. AND YES! IT HAS COME A LONG WAY!:D
