    Steve, I'm thinking it's because everything you read or write on the internet has to go through three different computers at Homeland Security before it gets in or out...I have the same problem, too.

    Try adding something nice about Republicans at the end of each post, and it should skip through the Homeland Security filters and go straight onto the site.

    :)

    I'll be out of town for a couple of weeks, and then hope to head out to Forks ASAP upon my return...if you show up before Sat. the 24th, I could easily be talked into a half day of two-handed casting with you...if you'd be willing to give a brother a lesson, that is!

    Either way, see ya out there.

    Fish on...

    Todd

    Maybe if everybody on this site bought a hat or two that would help Chris with $$ to make the site more resilient. Just a thought.

    My experience is similar. Only occaisionally do I get a lag. I use Comcast cable and Mozilla as my browser. Often when I encounter "waiting for washingtonflyfishing", if I click the reload at the top, it will cycle right away, but not always.

    I bought 2 hats, do I need to buy more...?

    I'm hitting the forum and general setup pretty hard to ease up on the proc. So far the easy stuff is working but we'll see. (implimented at 2:30PM 3/23) The next and likely bigger hit item will be, after upgrading the forum software, migrating the datastore items currently kept in the database to memory cache. I'm hoping that to be my huckleberry.

    I don't even worry about the lag anymore. I have dial-up and I think it is going backwards it is so slow. I just play a game until what ever I'm aiming for shows up. I can't play videos and some pictures take up to five minutes to load. It's wonderful loving in a third world country.

    I could go on and on but why bore you all. I just live with it.

    I believe the problem can be traced to the same source as the problem many or most of our fisheries face, an over-abundance of bipods. oh that there would be an easy answer.

    I have no idea what any of you are talking about, I just thought I'd show you the neighborhood beach. If only there was one creek with steelhead in it, then I'd think I was really living somewhere special. Since there obviously isn't, I have to bite the bullet and do the best I can. :D Coach

    I've noticed lagging / stalling or whatever it is too. If I find myself getting annoyed I simply remind myself that it's FREE. That usually cures any minor annoyance that I may be experiencing.
    If that doesn't work I just blame it on the Republicans like the rest of the conspiracy theorists.
    :rolleyes:
