I have now been waiting for over an hour trying to get to my family tree, and this happens now every time, do I really want to spend money watching a screen telling to me to"please wait" :-( :-( :-(

I had that problem yesterday, and gave up :-(

It seems fine today......... but I won't hold my breath.
