Forum goes walkabout
« on: November 26, 2021, 08:43:55 PM »
Does anyone else get times when the forum goes away for a brew, and sometimes even a chat with a neighbour over the fence while leaving me staring at a blank page?
I haven't timed it, but this can vary between a few seconds and a lorra, lorra seconds

It does happen occasionally, usually when loading a new topic. I thought the hamster in the wheel had gone for a fag break.
The years have been good to me, it was the weekends that did the damage.

Nah, more likely the duty mod forgot to feed Hammy and/or didn't grease  the wheel bearings.

That seems to be the most frequent occurrence, Malc. Just when I've read a post and clicked on 'All Unread Topics' and away it goes ???

Wait, there's a hamster?  ???

What on earth have I been feeding which requires a dozen or so kilos of fresh meat every day?  :goggleeyes: :goggleeyes: :goggleeyes:

I think the forum has found my secret stash of mince pies. Every time it stops or goes slow I look in the tin - and another one has gone!  :o :o :o
