    LOL. As you might guess I am peeved, haha. Its happening again where I typed something into a thread and the words show up but could not send it. It was larger than normal and of course took longer. So I copied and tried to paste but no luck and could not get the whole text back to try something else. I had to restart the computer. GGRRRRRRRR!!!!

    I dont think its the fault of the forum but the server I think. I know its not my computer as it does not happen on any other site.

    I think @Bob told me 2 or 3 weeks ago that it is some kind of security thing thinking I am not signed in properly or something. I can cope with it but just wanted to report.

    That sounds frustrating, I'd be peeved too!
    Copy and paste to a text file next time you write a large post Nigel in case it happens again, at least then you won't have lost the entire post if it does :)

    Thanks Bob. As I say its not the end of the world but if it kept happening with the longer posts I will type in Libre office or something and then copy/paste into the forum.

    @Bob just incase it helps in your investigations it did happen again to me late last night. So I tried other things that can be heavy on the processor such as Facebook and Photobucket before re-booting and they worked perfectly. Dont go changing anything just because of my problem though, I can get round it one way or the other.
