Your tracked discussions should be back now. And notifications should resume. Please let me know if you notice anything out of the ordinary.

Sorry everyone for the inconvenience and disruption.

Yup we are glitching!
by Lee Koo (ADMIN) CNET staff/forum admin / January 13, 2015 2:33 AM PST

We have been having problems with our newsletters deliveries, alert deliveries, and forum tracked discussions systems since Monday morning. We had some hardware failures at the farms and it's a bad one.

Our team has been working on it and it may all not be kosher until this evening (1/13). I have my fingers crossed.

We do apologize for any inconvenience!

If by any chance you're using the Blur add on with Linux

The "Submit Post" button doesn't work properly. The post is submitted but you don't get the acknowledgment that it has been sent. "Blur", I guess, is similar to DNT+ (Do Not Track Plus) so something in the Cnet software must be feeling slighted.

Same problem here
by wpgwpg / February 10, 2015 2:55 AM PST

I guess those engineers aren't exactly getting in a hurry. Sad This has been going on for a month. I just had to close my browser & restart for the umpteenth time.

Pages are loading a lot faster.
Today's site problem not only affect the CNET forums but the entire CNET site.

What has been going on for a month, wpgwpg? Can you help me out by telling me specific what you are experiencing?

We had problems with the track discussions which is a separate system than the forums itself, but that was a while ago Jan 12th and that was resolved on the 13th.

Please let me know so I can investigate. I haven't experienced any issues.

OK, here's what I've been seeing
by wpgwpg / February 10, 2015 6:36 AM PST

For the last couple of weeks when entering text here, suddenly everything in my browser freezes, I can't type anything. Sometimes I could scroll up or down then back to where I was trying to type, and it would work for a few minutes, then do it again. Sometimes I'd have to cancel the browser (IE11 under Windows 7) and start back over again. This meant repositioning 6 tabs and signing back on of course. Sometimes I could copy the address and paste it into another browser (Firefox 35.0.1) and finish what I'd started typing, but of course this meant I'd have to sign on again. Speaking of signing on, it always asks if I want it to remember my ID and password, I always tell it yes, but it never does. Sometimes the window here just turns black and freezes. This morning it just totally froze IE11, I couldn't click the red X, I couldn't cancel it from the task bar, I had to start the Task Manager and cancel it from there.
I know IE is buggy, but I use IE for MS forums too (separate tabs) and have never seen these things happen there. When I try using Chrome on my laptop (where I do most of my forum access), my temperatures jump 25 degrees C. This only happens with Chrome (which I do use on my desktops). I start 6 other tasks with Firefox and don't want to use it for forums.
Often I can't highlight text (using the mouse) - it's happening right now. A lot of times I can't insert emoticons. That's also the case right now.
I am behind both hardware and software firewalls, I'm using the Norton Security Suite I get from Comcast, and I run MalwareBytes (free version) every week or two. I haven't seen any sign of malware any time recently. I keep up to date with Windows 7 updates from MS.
The OP in this thread was on 1/12/15, just about a month ago. Anyhoo that's my story. Let me know if I can provide any more info.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
