    some more updates were made to the config file -- please continue to post any errors you see

    also, is it just me, or is the site running significantly slower than normal?

    Compared to newspaper, et al., sites that take time downloading ads & videos, this site is very fast.

    I noticed a big slowdown, but it seems to have improved a lot, just today.

    But maybe, that's just my wifi connection?

    Griz I use ad blocker plus. it's free and works well. You will find some sites disallow your access but you can "white-list" them if you choose. I choose to just back away from them.
    I have Ad Blocker Plus on all three of my machines. No more slow pages.

    Starting last night, been having real issues when writing a post. About every two words I get this pop up message,

    IMG_8867.PNG

    IMG_8836.PNG

    IMG_8827.PNG

    IMG_8832.PNG

    After getting this message, everything freezes up and continued typing is impossible unless closing keyboard and manually reinserting cursor.

    Also, after finishing a reply and trying to post it, either half the reply disappeared or the entire reply vanished. Not sure if anyone else is experiencing these wonderments. At some point this could become aggravating. Hopefully it's not the new server. Maybe it's on my end.

    Hi Jacob,

    I'm no longer able to upload images. I tried uploading an 800x600 pixel JPG and PNG files without success. The error message in the image below was cut & paste from Snipping Tool.

    I suspect a former member of forum is perhaps behind some forum gremlins, just sayin.

    Maybe just a coincidence?

    @Jacob, @Onautopilot

    FYI, I was just able to upload an image after I switched browsers to Firefox. I continue to receive an error message when I attempt to upload an image while using Microsoft Edge.

    For now I'll use Firefox when accessing this forum.

    Thanks.

    What web browser are you using? As I mentioned in the earlier post, I was unable to upload files after the server migration, even known "good" ones that I had been able to previously upload.

    I switched to Mozilla Firefox earlier today to see if it would help and it did. Trying another file now to see if it works, and then I'll try the same using Microsoft Edge (which is the default browser for Windows 10).

    I have windows 10, and use Microsoft Edge.....I'm not very computer literate, so not sure how to use different browsers. :)

    It would seem to be some issue with the new server.

    Had no issues with previous server. Now having issues continuously, using the same iPad with the latest OS.

    Firefox has always been a better browser than Explorer, and may alleviate some uploading problems.

    @Jacob -

    I received the error message below when I attempted to send a response in a conversation.
