This brings to mind an old commercial where the Happy Suburban Couple is in rapture over their breakfast cereal or flavored coffee, and the family dog is trying to alert them to the activities of a squirrel, so he spells out “SQUIRREL!” in kibble.
Dog’s can’t spell very well, so it should have been “SQL!” in kibble.
And thanks to **Jerry ** and staff for the mysterious upgrade. The boards have been rather well-behaved and speedy lately.
When I try to open IMHO from the main fora menu, I instead download a small file named “forumdisplay.php”. I’m using Safari 1.3 on MacOS 10.3.7. Thinks worked groovy yesterday. I can still enter threads in that forum, so long as they’re linked from other places, FWIW.
It happened to me in IE (I’m at work! It’s not my fault!). Killing all windows and starting over ended the glitch. Or maybe it ended by coincidence. Either way, it’s clear the hamsters didn’t qualify for flu shots this year.
These problems appear to be sporadic and short-lived; the board is working OK now. We upgraded to a new version of PHP yesterday, which may be the cause. To help us troubleshoot, pls post problem reports here stating:
Time you noticed the problem (hours/minutes/AM-PM/time zone/date, e.g., 1:30 PM CST, 12/22/04)
Details of what you were doing on the board immediately prior to the problem, as well as details of the problem itself, e.g., “I had written a reply to thread <name> in <forum name> and clicked on ‘submit.’ I got a message saying <whatever>.”
Browser type, version, operating system, e.g., “IE6, Win XP Pro.”
Time when you noticed the problem had gone away (assuming it goes away) and what you did to clear things up, e.g., refreshed your browser, started all over again, etc.
