How can I tell the difference?
Sometimes it’s obvious, like when I got the “cannot find string” message. Or that horrible time I got the “banned” message. I knew I hadn’t done anything to get me banned and so I figured it was a board problem.
But sometimes. . .
I’ll only get part of a page to load. Or I’ll get “site not responding”. Or the really scary “site not found”.
I know I’m not typing the URL incorrectly because I have a link in my favorites that sends me directly to the Forum description page. I’ll try alternate methods to connect (sometimes going in through the Threadspotting link works). If I can’t get in after more than two hours or so, I usually e-mail Tuba --the poor dear.
My questions are: What are the signs that the board is just slow? Are there times when my repeated attemps to access the board only make things worse? What shall I do about my addiction to Dope?
