of the mentioned floaters. What am I missing? Occasionally there are brief times when pages don't just fly but not that often. But, it happens on other sites as well. I have cable which is subject to bandwidth pinches when others on the same line clog up traffic with movie and music downloads. When this happens, the difference is noticable. I can't help but think Cnet is only a piece of a larger puzzle. BTW, my ISP is Earthlink out of Atlanta and those bytes of data have to cross the Smokies and Applachians to get up here to Ohio. It's a little bumpy but they do just fine. Happy

Only an HTML?

?Spill-over. Somthing to do with the Ad and how it was set up and sent to the advertising department at CNET.
The more I see it the more that I am used to it unless you use an an AD Block feature. The ad block feature can be set up in Mac or Windows.

Steven, with over 3,700 posts by you, why do you not list your OS in your profile?
Would be helpful to us.

I run XP Pro on 2 systems, Home on 1 (wife's) and Win2k as a secondary on my own. Previous were Win 98, 95, WFW (3.1), DOS 6.22 on down to 4.01 (I think it was .01). Tried Linux and choked on it....might try again later.

Thanks, didn't show up when I viewed your profile. Really not important for me to view. Just wanted you to know that the info did not show.
So when is the 4K?? Simply amazing.

Took over a minute with message: ''Waiting for''. Other forums and links in CNet forums just as slow. No problems at other web sites. Sad

They fixed something else...
by John.Wilkinson / January 25, 2006 12:52 PM PST

It may have been a messy situation, but at least one good thing came out of it automatically recognizes you when you click on your own profile! (Before when you loaded your own profile you didn't have the option to manage your account and it displayed your own latest posts instead of the latest replies, forcing you to go to another 'tab' first, then back to the 'my home tab' before those options were available.) I'm not sure if that was an expected outsome or not, but it's something I've been waiting for for some time now. Hopefully they can fix the viewing of another person's posts without losing that again.

:fingers crossed:

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?
