ActiveRain is Sure Slow Today

I have tried several times to be able to even get logged on to ActiveRain today.  The question is, what are we do do in the meantime?  Does it change anything if we go and open other sights?  Does it speed things up if we hit the arrow again?  How about backing up and starting again?

Is this because  "Microsoft Offers $44.6B for Yahoo"?  (according to ABC.com)

Can you tell I have a limited amount of patience when the computer doesn't do what I think it should--don't hate me (my patience, apparently, is saved for working with people (and animals).

Anyway, I am finally on and needed to vent and wondering if anyone else is going through the same.

Seattle, Bellevue, Queen Anne, Wallingford, Green Lake, Fremont and Redmond, Washington Real Estate Property Listings.   Just click on the blue "homes search" button and then click on the area you wish to view.  You can also search by street address or the MLS number.

Sorry Leslie,

Our guys were having some issues with the Database. They are working on it and it should be running a little better right now. They will have it all ironed out before long :)

It is slightly better now!  I experienced the same issue an hour ago.  Thought it was my computer, so I did what I always do if it slows up too much. 1) Reboot 2)Run Spyware Programs  3)Run Anti-Virus Program    4)  Empty Recycle Bin 5) Delete Unnecessary cookies 6) Run Disk Clean-up  7)  Run Disk Defragment.

Did all that, and its much quicker now!

But since it was an Active Rain issue, oh well, I got some reading done!

Thanks AR

I'm still finding the site a bit slow.  And when I first tried to log in, I kept getting an error message that read "we're sorry for the problem, please click here to return to the home page".

Hi Richard,

When I go to submit the comment it takes a long time for something to happen.

It does appear to be slow but better than it was earlier when I couldn't connect to the site at all.  And, hey, it's free.  If I was paying for this then I would not be a happy camper, but I can always come back and blog with y'all tomorrow when things speed up a bit.

Hi Rich,  Ctrl-Alt-Delete always worked for me!

Hi Sallie,  I appreciate Active Rain--but when we need our "fix" we need our "fix" LOL

Yes, it was very slow for me today also. Oh and this Yahoo - Microsoft thing, could give Google some real competition, which they need. And it will change the dynamics of the internet too. I think it will be good, and I wonder if it will be allowed. The FTC cannot legitimately block it, because Google has the lionshare by far of the surf traffic. Lance

Hi Charlie,

I bet you are very good at it though!

Hi Lance,

You are the only one that commented on the Microsoft possible purchase of Yahoo.
