    I know this doesn't help, but the problem is on your end. I had some spyware on my machine once and saw similar symptoms that you are describing. I suggest you install lavasoft adaware and see if it finds anything.
  8. I remember last time you guys saying it was on my end, the problem is I'm at work and can't do much about it. Oh well, last time it stopped doing it after a few days so maybe it will clear up again. Thanks.
  9. Other than having a hard time posting a pic this am all has been good :)
  10. CatpnRoger,

    The last time that Twistertail was having the problem I was as well. It seemed to be a timeout/slow response from the OGF server to my PC. Refreshing would bring the screen up and if it was when i was posting the post would go through but the screen had not finished updating. At the time there were a few having the problem. Many of the users seemed to be on RoadRunner (as am I) so I suspected something in the DNS server configuration for RoadRunner although I never was able to verify it. I was getting intermittent no response on ping commands as well. I am running FireFox and have run spyware regularly on my system so I am sure it was not a spyware issue back then. However, I have not noticed the problem this time. I would lean toward it being a network type issue if it is like the last time.

    Here is the thread from the last time it was happening about a month ago.

    twistertail.maybe the boss is trying to tell you something :D :p
  13. That could be Rick, I know I'd like to tell him a thing or two!
  14. It haps to me now and then too :(
    If I refresh the page then it sends me to a page that states I am at an invalid thread but if I use my back button then I see my post :)
    Not often but it has hap'd...
    Infact it hap'd just now and I recalled this thread so here I am :confused:
  15. My comp decided to start it again today.Whats up?
  16. It is rather curious that the last time Twistertail was having the problem so was Truck.:confused: It certainly seems like more than a coincidence. It still seems like an issue with the Road Runner, perhaps a router issue or something. I konw Twistertail could not pursue it from his computer but, Truck if you continue with problems on yours you may try contacting Road Runner technical support. They may be able to pinpoint a problem.
  17. It's not doing it everytime now but now I'm getting the message I can only post one message every 30 seconds even with my first post.
  18. Talked to RR ,they said they would ck this problem out for us :)
