    Edit in lounge won't load--anywhere else will why?

    For the last 30 minutes, I tried to edit a page in the lounge and I can't get the page to load--a progress bar runs and hesitates like it's pushing a ten ton truck and at the same time, CPU is maxed out to a straight line of 100%. Anywhere else I hit edit on a post in the lounge, and the page loads in a split second. Just curious what could cause this. I tried closing a number of windows and applications, but even before there was 90% System Idle Process in Task Manager.

    Thanks,

    There do seem to be times when the Lounge server is just really, really slow. Maybe during backups? If I get really nervous, I copy my post into Notepad so I won't lose it if something crashes. (Something other than Windows 2000, which I've only crashed once ever, testing a freebie PDF program.)

    Me too! Like Jefferson, I occasionally experience slowdowns in Lounge response, Defrag, and I've always been blaming it on my DSL connection (phone company or ISP?) or heavy 'net traffic or..... But always, after a SHORT wait, things get back to normal.

    I sometimes get anomalous or very slow behavior when I shift click the reply icon and load the reply page in a new window. So, as the old joke goes: "Doctor, it hurts when I do this" Doctor: "Well, don't do that.".
