    Ya, thought it was just something on my end. Nice to know it may not be.

    I posted a thread in the information booth about this. It seems a few of us have had issues. Hopefully the mods are looking into it...

    Could be the Chinese interfering with it. I heard a computer expert the other day say that the Chinese are trying to completely crash the internet.

    yep, same here.

    As I occasionally look at site stats from Netcraft, I get a chill up my spine as I fear that our beloved BP forum is being ran on an old DOS/windows box behind a legacy Watchgard firewall and served out on a Comcast DSL or cable modem link from someone's home.

    I can't tell you how much that I hope that I am completely wrong about everything I typed in the above paragraph.

    "Planet not orbiting correctly ?"

    How ironic you waited until today to post this thread and use that title. Did you happen to know it is anniversary of the birthday, in 1874, of Gustav Theodore (von) Holst, the English Composer best known for The Planets, his seven movement orchestral suite with each characterized by and named after one such body?

    days. I'm blaming it on edge and windows 10. Site is slow to load pictures. I tried Opera as well so losing faith on blaming it on MS. :beta1:

    I heard an IH line worker took one of the last pickups made in 1975 to the store on his way home. He brought a brand new Epson. Rumors are the site had an Atari upgrade in '85 when the scouts were discontinued. Some think Comodore may have been involved as well.

    You're welcome. Particularly for Jeff's benefit, since he said he enjoyed that information so much, and since Yesterday was the first day of Autumn, perhaps I should also mention Vivaldi's Four Seasons. Since changes in the weather affect can affect computer operation and they are ultimately based on the Sun's interactions, so are seasonally related, I guess I can justify putting such a link here too. Maybe I should even search for and post a link to the music, but I haven't taken the time to learn how to download, or at least listen to free music [yes, "IH - Scout people are Cheap"] on the computer. Besides, I should already be out working, rather than typing this or thinking about how to spend more time here.

    This planet has been extremely slow in rotation. Have not been able to check in on here all week. I usually browse around two or three times a day through my android powered toy phone. Out of all the other sites that I frequent, this site has been very sluggish and the only one that acts Anti-orbital.

    Had to jump through space just to check in and see what's going on

    Just a quick update.

    There was some some issues with the ISP that got worse and worse over time.

    Everything was resolved last last week and so far it seams to be steady.
    Any issues please let me know.
