It's even getting worse now. The forums are up, they're green most of the times, half the bb code isn't working and to view and reply to a topic you have to refresh your browser at least 5 times.

I am now writing most of my replies in notepad again, before throwing them onto the server all in one batch. ;)

Luckily that I have these forums to rest on. Also slow loading at times, but still faster than 'my home'. :)

Couldn't it also be a worm sitting on a server, and the person who has the infected server doesn't know it? It happened to us once before we switched the operating system, and we got a letter from our itnernet provider where it said that we had a slammer worm, and how to fix it.

Of course, it could also be the average teenage geek with an intelligence rivalling that of a door knob. Or as I like to say in Swedish, "lika smart som en krämfylld ICA-kasse med tomteluva". :P

Off-topic: Could you, Spiff, enlighten me by letting me know what a "tomteluva" is.

(oh, now I've sunk low. I'm trying to get enlightened by a swedish guy  :o (for those who don't know, according to norwegians, swedes have a quite low mental capacity. Much like blonde women, actually. I do believe that the swedes think of us the same way as well)).

*looks around nervously* Never said anything wrong about swedes...nononono.  :)

It's all a state of mind, right?
Oi, is this when I get a huge sig-image, start whining about "moar sid" and make nonsensical arguments to no good?

Of course. Little white meeces are what makes the world (aka the mouse-wheel) go 'round. ;D

And an alien made the Norwegian fjords. Won an award for them, he did, yes indeed.

Me too. I've been debating in my mind for days now whether or not to just take off. I think I'd really like to be walking along the beach playing in the waves...
