Page load contest.

Break out your calendars and see how long it takes to edit a post here. First reply to this thread and then click "edit post." Then see how long it takes to get posted. Post your results. (You should have time to shower and make a sandwich. )

Everything is working fine for me.

But that's probably because I'm a VIP member of BF. That's right, I don't have to wait for the server, I go straight to the front of the line!

Actually, I think it was because of an attempt to roll out a spellcheck feature. Did anyone else notice? There was an icon in the upper right corner of the reply box. It's not there now.
