    Any reason why the forums are damn near non-functional?

    In order for my browser to load a page, I have to click on it's link a few dozen times, otherwise the browser will get bored and time out.

    Explain.

    My troubleshoot-fu says you probably have an unsecured wifi router, letting your neighbor suck all the bandwidth downloading questionable video footage. This makes your connection so slow that the web pages time out.

    Tell your neighbor (or family member, or maybe yourself) to take it easy on the torrents.

    I build computers for a living. Nothing about my hardware or software goes untouched before I set it up or turn it off.

    I am playing CS 1.6 while the page loads. The server simply isn't sending anything back to meet the clients request.

    Every other thing I do online works fine, except Bike Forums.

    I have the same problem at times. Usually I'm on a high speed direct connect at work and am accessing many other sites at the same time. BF is awful sometimes. Either they don't have enough resources or their IT support people don't know how to do their jobs.
    You're just trying to start an argument to show how smart you are.

    Turn on your error console in your browser when this happens next time and PM the results to me for, specifically, Javascript errors, etc. I think I may know what's up, and that would help me confirm it.
    on light duty due to illness; please contact my assistants for forum issues. They are Siu Blue Wind, or CbadRider or the other 3 star folk. I am currently at home recovering from a couple of strokes. I am making good progress, happily.

    How are the game coming along?

    Oh that's right, like Macs, Linux isn't a good platform for 3D games. At least, not for good ones.

    You can say "What about Wine?", or "Cedaga works awesome." all you want, either way, you are adding something to nothing and making suck out of it.

    I use Opera and Firefox, so you can eat that one as well.
