Anyone else have the problem that the site freezes up after a few clicks on the posts? it does it on my home computer and my office computer. If I close the window and reopen IE it works fine but eventually does it again. And can anyone tell me why I visit BITOG almost everyday--and why I find Doug Hillary interesting and search his posts? Isn't it just oil we're talking about?

I don't know the answer, but it is happening to me as well, just the way you describe. I am running Windows XP Media Center Edition 2005, Windows Explorer v. 7.0.5730.11, with all the latest Windows patches....

It's a Bitog + Explorer issue. I haven't had any issues when using FireFox.

There's an easy fix on this...use Mozilla Firefox.

Agreed. Firefox is the answer and version 3 is even better than 2.x. http://www.getfirefox.com

The correct answer isn't to use Firefox, Mozilla or Opera.

The correct answer is fix the problem on Internet Explorer!

How about it, moderators?

I didn't want to download another browser. I like my Explorer.

...I reluctantly downloaded FireFox anyway, and am now glad I did. I don't use it too often, but it does downloads much more efficiently than IE, and it never has any of these "glitchy" problems.

But Bitog should work with Explorer.

I am new to computers, got my first one last summer and am still learning. I to have the freeze up constantly, I usually go to another site for awhile then come back. Very aggravating. I think BITOG should fix the problem.

The IE7 phishing filter causes random lockups of browsing on certain sites.

Tools < Phishing Filter < Turn Off .......

May fix it.

No issues here, but, I run IE6 and SP2 on XP home and NOT IE7 or SP3.

No problems at all here. I use a MAC. As for as why you visit every day, your like the rest of us, your addicted, and it does not get any better. As for as Doug Hillary, he's as sharp as a tack with lots of real world experience.

Because too many people are doing text searches on the entire site. It has nothing to do with your browser. I notice a 20 second pause at times and I'm using Firefox 2.0.0.15. And notice the same thing with IE. At work and at home.
