Is the site slow loading for others and get stuck on the lovely green flock :-S

Sometimes - but we assume that there is something chundering along on our computer. We shut down firefox, wait until it goes quiet and then start again.

Seems to work for us ! :-)

Its been quite iffy all day. several times too I have had to log in again, and got the" sorry we are doing maintenance message" a couple of times

Not slow tody, but I did a complete scan and deleted everything last night so it could be why mine is faster today.

Ive done all usual stuff, its a bit faster via genes AU site but only this site is affected by loading.........


PricklyHolly Report 2 Jun 2011 18:08

I had the same thing all afternoon yesterday. I clicked on View (top left hand corner) and then Reload..........and it sorted it.
Hope it works for you! PH.
