Are you guys getting the same glitches as I am?

By gadgetgirl ·
The site has been constantly hiccuping of late, and I know we've all been putting up what's happening.

I've been getting intermittent problems, but over the last few days, another few things are showing up.....

I agree with Jaqui and Dawg - the site is performing differently on different machines situated in different locations.

I log in both from at home (laptop, wireless broadband, 4GB) and at work (basic kit, networked, 10GB)

On both of these, over the last two days, it appears that the site is not correctly picking up the "posts from my contacts". Now, I don't know if it's picking on jd, NeilB and Dawg, or just me! It's missed a few posts from each of them, which I've found while paging down threads.

The other thing is the part loaded page, which I'm only getting on my home laptop. It loads to the thread title, then stalls.

At work, if I refresh the miscellaneous titles page, it doesn't always refresh (and hey, I know from the number of posts, and the number of new discussions that they aren't all being posted at once!)

I won't say anything about my new emoticon not animating itself, that may have been a fault at the photobucket end....

(but, my Angel is cute, ain't she??!!)

Is it just me that it's messing around with contacts??

Hey GG!

by Tig2 In reply to Are you guys getting the ...

I have been running into similar things- home computer is a Dell D600, Pentium M 1600 Mhz, 256 RAM, XP Pro, SP1 with some non Microsoft patches to bring it up to SP2. Partner's laptop has different issues, similar configuration.

I don't have a print icon, I have quit trying to monitor contacts from "Recent Posts" as one or two will invariably be lost, and don't get me started about the uselessness of "refresh".

I try to stay logged in all the time as only one in three login attempts will be successful and I don't always have the time to go through that process.

There were several days that clicking on the next post in a discussion returned a 404. TRI tosses me out multiple times reading a single thread.

And WHERE are the new emoticons that you keep pleading for??? :)

The issue with your icon is indeed a Photobucket thing. Check that it was saved as a .gif file. I had the same thing happen with the dpetrak icon. Fortunately, my ribbon doesn't do anything. But- I wouldn't see the animation anyway as I don't see ANYONES animated icons as anything but a single image.

I like the new angel by the way...

You aren't alone. I think that TR is doing things to upgrade the site and it is having unpredictable impact. Just a guess though.

Thanks T2!

at least I know I'm not alone!

I was wondering for a while, there.

Well, we're having "issues" at work - we had a DR situation in January involving water and pipework underneath the unit in which I work, the repairs of which have had to wait until now to ensure adequate heating provision for the in-patient part of the site. They've now finally switched off the heating (yipee!)just in time for the weather to heat up. Then they started with bloomin' great digging machines outside my window.

I think they're digging through to Australia.

And I've had to close the window, as it's impossible to hear anything in here whilst the digger is going.

And it's bloomin' hot! :8} I feel cooked!

We still have issues; they're not replacing the pipe immediately, to cost-cut, they're going to find all the access hatches first, and put an electronic mole down there.... (DE!!) which means more digging outside my window.... Grrr. :_|

But at least I now know my brain is not as fried as I thought it was if you're having problems, too!!

(Wonder if NeilB found the only working shower in the building for the spare lavcam??!! ]:) )

Very cool Jaqui

by Tig2 In reply to what do you mean

You have some great emoticons. GG may wish to get her hands on your angel...

And alas, yes. Animated images aren't animated for me. I don't know why this is the case. Similarly, the mythic "print" icon doesn't exist for me either.

*sniff* Maybe TR doesn't like me much. Or perhaps this is a sign that it is time to deep-six this wretched machine and get that Mac that I so badly want...

Tig, which browser?

Which browser are you using?

The CaCa loaded with XP Pro

by Tig2 In reply to Tig, which browser?

Sorry. I have been dealing with my anger management issues as regards Windows overwhelming need to TREAT ME LIKE A MORON!

Okay. I'm better now...

I should probably switch and see if it resolves a NUMBER of other issues that drive me nuts. Can you recommend something NOT M$?

I have been using this for a while now, and it works in all COMPLIANT web sites.

Keeps spyware/malware at bay too.

I haven't seen any movement at all in it.
