If this appears, they are working, and Steerpike is happy.

If this does not, they are not, and Steerpike is sad.

Last night - midnight or so - the system wouldn't accept my math answers, no matter how correct, so I couldn't post.  I even used my calculator to add "1+5" thinking that I might be going senile.  Today all works as it should.  Yea Steerpike!

Has anyone else had issues with the "new posts" icon registering a false-positive? This has been happening at least the last week where I read the new posts, close either the tab or all of Firefox, come back later (same day or next day) and there's at least one post I've already read still triggering that little red icon. You can't blame this one on me this time! [Image Can Not Be Found]

Yes, I see what looks like a new post but it is one I already read.

Poor forums taking a test.

Reminds me of the great observation about whether prayer should be allowed in schools: there is no atheist right before a big test.

Last night it seemed to think my math skills were lacking. After trying three times and getting a message that my answer was wrong, I waited an hour, came back and my answer was finally accepted. Weird.[Image Can Not Be Found]

Toger, you think 'YOU' have a problem? It takes me 2 hours to post/reply some.[Image Can Not Be Found] [Image Can Not Be Found] And to add those 2 numbers? I get chills.[Image Can Not Be Found]

Steerpike has got to stop those tests.  What?  Is he looking for the Higgs Boson?  He's gonna suck us into a black hole for sure.

Hey, if I find a Higgs Boson in the forum system, we'll all be rich!

The tests are completed. However, a few days ago I re-enabled WordPress Supercache to improve the speed of the site. This may be the cause of some bad behavior, so if you encounter anything odd, please let me know.

By "improve the speed of the site" do you mean bring it to a snail's pace? [Image Can Not Be Found]

Seriously, some days it takes forever while "waiting for tap-repeatedly.com". Although it could be on my end; especially when I'm at work.

Nope, it's not just you Toger.  And I have a fast computer. However, I've always blamed the slowness on Comcast.

The site does seem unduly slow to me at times also. I will consult with my wiser cohort MrLipid to see what must be done.
