Is it just me!! having real problems
« on: June 12, 2007, 08:39:58 am »

For the last few days I have not been able to get in as it takes ages to load up and then sometimes it comes up with the message network busy!

Then when i do get on it is taking ages to open posts so i give up :(

It's very very slow here, too. It got better yesterday though. Mozilla keeps telling me connection timed out as well...

I've been fine the last couple of days.
Time to clear out your temporary internet files?

I've had problems opening large posts (i.e.those with lots of pages) - they seem to have taken forever or eventually timed out, but I've had no problems so far today (touch wood!)

You can try forcing your cookies to refresh by clicking F5 when you're on the site, it sounds like your cache has corrupted slightly and is holding an old version of the site from several days ago.  If you're not doing so already, remember to close all open instances of your browser when deleting cookies, and then leaving it several seconds before opening it again.  Something else to try would be uninstalling/reinstalling your modem or router, these often cause connection problems. 

I also recommend using another browser if you don't already, if you download and install Mozilla's Firefox you can use that to see if you can connect to the site.

If none of those options work then I will leave instructions on how to flush your computer's dns cache.

Mozilla Firefox is an alternative to Internet Explorer.  As a rule it's a faster and safer web browser than Internet Explorer but some people find it takes some getting used to, I would def. recommend giving it a go if you have it already :)

Is it only this website you have problems with, or is it with all websites?

We use aol, too. We need to open aol to connect (at least used to when the box was programmed to be a modem) and then could open mozilla.
