Forum out to lunch
« on: December 09, 2019, 10:23:45 PM »
Does anyone else find that when clicking on something e.g. 'Reply' or 'Quote' or Show all unread posts' the forum quite randomly goes off for lunch (or at least a beverage and roll) leaving a blank screen with the little circle tazzing round for far longer than it would normally just time out? Sometimes a good 90 seconds or so elapses.

Bugger, I too thought Mick was going to stand lunch for us all.

Are you still using a dial-up modem? That'd probably cause it.

Can't say I've noticed, what I have noticed however, is that while I can bulk upload pictures at home on my laptop, my phone will only do one at a time when I click bulk upload.

Does that qualify for a pub lunch?  ;)

looking forward to the lunch, maybe we could start a crowdfunding account so us from o/s the UK can come and join in.
