Well, this is really starting to annoy me... I got a new PM.

So I read it, replied and all... and then went back out to browse. Strangely enough, the message popped up once again. And again... until I finally deleted it.

And then the next one, from one week ago, popped up.

Exactly. Me or the computer?

Yep, I can now confirm that it is alive - and very annoying.

Do thread titles come up weirdly too?
Like this thread name appeared to be the other one, "Offline or online", until I refreshed it several times.

Weird.

Whaaaat...

Everything is slowed down, man. It's like drugs.

Like under my name, it should say "scribbling master", but sometimes it reverts to the old one... weird.

Yes. On one refresh the new posts will be nearly vacant and the next the stuff will be there like normal. One of the admins will likely need to get involved. I don't know what I can do about it. Oh wait. I work in the IT industry.

Try this: reboot.

Wow.

It really is psycho.

Look here, it's absolutely absurd:


How strange, eh?

There was, in fact, many more online, when I refreshed. But I got a screen shot first.

I've seen that before, actually, and thought it was weird too.

I've also had threads magically stay stuck when I'd deliberately deleted them (my own outdated threads about the latest contests, that is). Then it would tell me I'm about to delete two threads when I've clearly only checked one.

Curiouser and curiouser.

Yesterday, everytime I clicked "New Posts", it would show me threads I'd already looked at. There were no new posts in those threads... sometimes my own post was the last one!

glberen: reboot? That's what you IT guys always say! Gonna try your own medicine?

Well, it seems to be stopped, but... still cautious... any ideas what it could be/mean?
