Is anybody else getting very slow or no show loading problems for The Coop? Just in the last week it has been very slow to respond and sometimes doesn't load at all. I had a UBBcode error this morning that reported it failed to load.

I've been experiencing the same problems, both at home (dial-up Internet) and at school (broadband Internet). It's aggravating to say the least.

Yes, me too! It's always slower than any other Website that I access during (ANY TIME) of the day. I have DSL.

For quite a while, but I blame everything on this "new" computer, which has not been easy. I have to try several times to get the site to open some days, but other sites pop right up. CJR

Jean, I don't see how it could be your new computer when I and other members are having the same problem.

And that's weird as I haven't had any trouble today, but yesterday it was terrible. We'll see what next week brings.

For me it is usually better around noon but worse in the evening, so I thought it was because of heavy traffic.

Today, I can barely get on The Coop, and now the topics are just as slow to open.

I still cannot post pictures from Photobucket. I have tried all the remedies offered but will still try for more options.

If you are considering a Dell Inspiron, think well. I have replaced the keyboard, scanner/printer, replaced programs it came with, and if I could deliver enough young birds, I would replace the whole system! I have had paid help as well as volunteers. Nothing but trouble, and I guess I am not the only one to complain about it!

So there may be problems with The Coop. I feel it is also with my computer. The Coop is no longer my Home Page, and I will not be opening as often. It is time to GARDEN and take care of CHICKS anyway! CJR

CJR, I agree (and I visit the Coop less and less). Finally gardening and healthy chick raising is first in my mind. I never did like computers to begin with. The human touch (face to face) is the way God planned it!

I can assure you it's not YOU!

I sent Loren an E-mail this morning informing him of the continuing problems we're having with The Classroom @ The Coop. Hopefully, he will check into the situation to see if anything can be done to help improve it.

As I recall, everything was just fine until the first server upgrade a couple of years ago. I think that was the beginning of all these problems we've been experiencing. Just because something is "updated" or "newer" isn't always a good thing!

Thanks to those of you who continue to post here under these trying circumstances.

As my Granddaddy always said: "What you get for nothing take very little of"! Great site but FREE. Let's face the facts. There are folks on this site with post graduate degrees who, because of their educational kindness, even answer our most basic questions. What do you think that would cost at the university level? Let's ALL help out in getting things up and running and be a little more considerate of those "who pay for our dinner"!

Problems again, getting onto the website. And after EVERY post, a "Timed Out" box, even if a few word. Takes 2 tries for every post??????

I still blame my computer, but in this case, the website may be having problems again??

And after many contacts with my DELL Inspiron, Vista program, the technician suggests I ask for a replacement computer with Windows XP--I am going to do it. It has not been a happy winter with this new computer!!!! (Timed Out AGAIN)

You might consider saving your 'pocket-change'- because I have the same problems! Windows XP is certainly a nice program- but your recent problem, I beleive...is NOT because of your computer or software programs...BUT I'm not a 'Wonk' Certainly if you can get a new computer (NO Charge)- then that's a good 'thingy'- Would be nice to 'HEAR' from other members- as to any difference, that they are experiencing with this site.

I've found out that most of the time the site works each second time, sometimes it's enough to push the refresh button. It's a good thing to preview reply twice before submitting it, then it will be sent in 4 times out of 5.So copy your reply before sending, then you don't need to write it once more from the start

It usually takes me a second try to get to the site but then I have very little trouble. I started making a habit long ago (as Wieslaw suggests) of using "copy" before hitting submit on any web site. Too many times I have had to re-type.

Rhea Dean is unable to get on the Coop at all. I feel his problem is in his computer or provider issues.

CJR, go for it with a replacement computer, but my advice is to avoid Dell Inspiron if you possibly can. A retail outlet over here brings them in on parallel import, and they have a really bad reputation here for break downs and problems. Someone gave a whole lot of Dells to the school where I work and they all died. Then we had to pay to have them disposed of. I run XP and would not dream of changing. I also have Firefox as my preferred internet service and find I get a lot less problems than with Internet explorer.

They have the same reputation here in Denmark, too.

So just curious- how are things with your "Timed Out" box?

I was able to log in tonight. It has been almost two weeks since I was able to log in, but for some reason I could tonight.
