Question! In GD, I can’t get a thread to refresh in IE. I finally opened up Netscape to view the posts after my last one, and it STILL wouldn’t go past my last post. I tried clearing out my cache, hitting Shift+refresh, restarting the browser…
Any suggestions on what else I could try? Please?
FTR, it’s the “Fat vs. Thin” thread in GD: http://boards.straightdope.com/sdmb/showthread.php?threadid=23088
Yeah, it’s been doing this to me, too. I think it’s just the new software burping every so often. It also might possibly be due to the mod editing something in the thread, or locking it, or moving it, right at the time you were trying to load it.
With UBB, I think when this happened, just the board got realll slooowwww… and finally hung up and nothing would come out. Evidently vB kicks it over to a “Page Not Found” instead of just hanging, and Refresh doesn’t work.

Don’t panic. Do something else for 15 or 20 minutes.
C’est la vie.
It’s probably working now, right?
We’re sending all this stuff to the techs, they’re investigating.
Might just be a system burp, might be a bug, not sure yet.

Thanks Tuba. Wasn’t sure if it was just me or not. Knowing the wackiness of the internet connection at my office, I wasn’t sure…
