...sometimes when you get an email saying there's been a response to one of the posts you've added to, or when the topics list shows one of them has been updated by somebody at whatever o'clock, you click on the link but find that the page that comes up doesn't have that new post on? Refreshing it, quitting Explorer etc doesn't have any effect...

I think it's just you.

I've occasionally seen screwy behavior like that, but not lately.

It shouldn't happen here though - I access it from work, where there's a superfast broadband thingy. Then again, sometimes I can be on a website filling in forms for over 10 minutes, click the 'send' button and nothing happens. That's not at all annoying, is it?

It's not just you Rook. I'm on the board almost every day and find that happens quite frequently. A topic header will list a new post with a time stamp but the post won't be there. I've often thought that the poster may be editing his entry his entry when this happens or walked away from his pc in the middle of composing his post.

I dunno, sometimes after I log out and log back on later in the day the listed posts appear. Ghost in the machine I say.
