    Can't load some threads

    I have had this problem, occasionally before with other threads.

    At this time, if I go to the Hardware forum and click on the most recent thread ( It's Alive!!!! ), I get disconnected from the Lounge and dumped out right back to my Desktop. It happens on all 3 posts in that thread, yet other threads are fine without any problems.???

    Long ago, there was a time when men cursed and beat on the ground with sticks. It was called witchcraft.
    Today it is called golf!

    Yor preferred browser of choice is IE6 isn't it? Have you got any specific security settings or firewall settings that maybe getting upset?


    PS I seem to remember something about a series of explanation marks can cause a problem....I'll get onto the Mods and see what can be done to test the theory

    Jerry,
    No particular security settings different than usual.
    Like I said, it ONLY happens on that thread. ALL others are fine.
    You may be on to something with that series of exclamation marks doing something, I can't recall just what it was though.

    Bob,

    I have removed the exclamation marks from the subject of the two replies in that thread (but not from the original post). Can you open either of those replies now?

    Re: Can't load some threads

    Hans,
    That did it all right! The other two following posts worked fine, When I tried the original with all the !!!!, it bombed out on me.

    Any idea just what causes that?

    At any rate,Thanks all,

    Re: Can't load some threads

    I don't know why the exclamation marks cause your browser to crash, but I have now removed them from the first post in that thread too.

    <img src=/S/lightbulb.gif border=0 alt=lightbulb width=15 height=15> Is it worth a "word from on high" to ask users not to include multiple exclamation marks in the subject field?

    If at first you do succeed, you&#39;ve probably missed something.

    Thanks, we'll keep that in mind. It doesn't occur very often, but if it becomes a problem, we may just do that. <img src=/S/thumbup.gif border=0 alt=thumbup width=15 height=15>

    Re: Can't load some threads

    Ok, so do you remember everything you post? <img src=/S/notmyfault.gif border=0 alt=notmyfault width=15 height=15> Besides, that was from August of '05!

    I'm almost at 4100 posts here in the Lounge....what was it I posted a few weeks ago? Must be my short term memory loss acting up again. <img src=/S/scratch.gif border=0 alt=scratch width=25 height=29> <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15>

    Perhaps Leif doesn't remember everything he posts, but he certainly remembers everything you post! <img src=/S/evilgrin.gif border=0 alt=evilgrin width=15 height=15> <img src=/S/liar.gif border=0 alt=liar width=25 height=22>
