Anyone know why it takes ages for some posts to appear, and other pop right up? Any way to fix it? Just curious....

There could be many reasons for that, Ghani, but the most likely is the cache. The cache is a folder on your hard drive where your browser stores pages that you've already visited, so that it doesn't have to retrieve them over the wires all over again next time you visit. If the pages that you've most recently visited are the ones that are popping right up, it's definitely the cache. Nothing you can do to change it, but you wouldn't want to anyway. Without it, you'd be waiting longer for all the pages.

I'm assuming you're on a dialup connection?

Usually all I have to do is click the refresh button, and the new posts will load.

works for me.

No, Paras, we have broadband. I'm not too clever with this here ''technology'', so I'll have to ask someone here to possibly assist in figuring it out, cuz even when I use the refresh button, it doesn't always work. But the desktop and lots of the file space here is pretty full, could that be a reason?

Pixie,
NOOOOOOO!!!! Shouldn't have fed them that angel food cake after midnight....
