FR acting up?
October 13, 2013 | don-o

Posted on 10/13/2013 6:39:07 PM PDT by don-o

Earlier today, it was white screens that responded to refresh for page to load. Now, I am getting logged off. After a reboot, I could log back on.

Is it just me?

Yes. I AM asking for it, aren't I?

It’s been happening all day; the NSA is just messing with us.

No, it’s been like that for about 24 hours. Last week, I had the log off problem.

Yeah, there’s been issues. You click “preview” or “post” and you get a “cannot display web page” screen.
It’s happened before. It leads to a lot of double posts.

I’ve had similar problems the last couple of days; most of the time I can do a manual refresh and continue on the page.

Whenever you press 'post reply', 'preview', etc .. try mashing the associated 'button' or link a tad harder/longer than usual.

Sounds simple, but has been helpful for me this afternoon.

Part of the underlying problem may be in the response (millisecond) timing of the forum software ?

Anyway, fwiw .. cheers.

Yep! I can’t open the (Live Thread) Million Vet March thread.

Apparently others can with over 500 posts.

That is how I was displaying the flag at our overpass demonstration yesterday. Amazing response from drivers on I-26.

Yes, I have been noticing some strange, but not new problems going from page to page, or to post, but wrote them off to excessive activity with all the goings on today. I thought there must be many more people than usual connecting up with FR because of all the activity in DC, and what better place to follow what’s going on than FR.

I believe the correct term is “Caucasian pages.”

(And yes, I was getting the same thing. Seems better now)

Whatever the “white screen” problem was this afternoon, I think John got it fixed. Seems to be working fine for the last couple hours. Don’t know on the cookie problem.

Yes, I was having fun at your expense last night. Then I came across this

http://techvts.com/white-screen-virus-on-windows-computer-removal

White Screen virus aka white screen of death has become a notorious malware on Computers, laptops and even on the smart phone devices. When talking about PCs and laptops, White Screen virus is caused by Trojans and rogue virus infections. These viruses will replace you desktop with a white blank sheet so you wont be able to access any link on your desktop. All you will be seeing is a White Screen with nothing to be clicked. It is kind of a computer lock to block the user from accessing his PC and thus acquire the user to pay some ransom to get access of the machine. Don`t panic if a White Screen of death is appearing. But remember, it is completely different from the Blue screen of death problem. White Screen virus can be caused by infections like FBI MoneyPak virus or another Trojan infection. In most cases, when the user Logs on to windows, a white page appears that covers the full screen. Or when shutting the pc down, a white screen comes up and then FBI moneypak virus may pop-up asking you to pay a fine of some dollars to get rid of white screen that has locked your computer. The malware can infect any version of windows OS, white screen virus on windows-7 or windows xp, windows vista and even the windows 8 has also been hit by white screen virus. Anyhow, to get rid of White Screen virus, you have to run the computer into safe mode. And then scan your computer with a powerful anti-malware program to detect the infection which has vanish your desktop.

I guess a white screen really isn't something to joke about. Sorry 'bout that, mate. You can search for more on that symptom if it persists. It's usually associated with 'ransom' malware, but that statement comes after browsing a dozen search returns...
