Maybe TCS is getting too popular? I haven't noticed any problems for over a week now. I was having trouble with the cursor "freezing"; after I blocked the advertisements the trouble stopped, but that was probably just a coincidence. I use a notebook, and have a lot of peripheral devices. My nephew and his friend fooled around with the USB ports around the same time, so maybe they solved the problem. One thing I've been wanting to ask - I'm keeping attachments to a minimum, and use remote links, but wouldn't it help to suggest that members delete those links, excepting signatures, and perhaps "fur pictures", after two or three weeks?
