Looks like the same damn people and the same tired topics?!?! 

You call that an upgrade?! 


Well done sir!  Thanks!

1. I have come back refreshed and full of vim and vigour after the break, so that's an upgrade!

This isn't really an issue, but did there used to be another button next to the preview and post ones? It looks wrong somehow but I don't know why.

I don't remember another button.

I don't remember another button.
And I can't find a screenshot anywhere with 3 in either. How has my brain managed to convince itself of an entirely imaginary third button in the last 24 hours? ???

This may just be me since I have a very old lap top and the outdated XP operating system, but the screens never finish loading. I can see everything fine as far as I can tell but the circle keeps spinning on the tab and never changes to an "X". I hope this makes sense.

Did this start happening after the upgrade?  Anyone else experiencing this?  Doe this happen with other websites?  Which browser are you using?

The circle will spin as long as the browser is waiting for content.  Many web pages get their content from multiple sources (this site also does that but not nearly as much as other sites)  and, therefore, make multiple requests while the page is loading.  If any of those requests have a glitch then the wheel keeps spinning until they all complete or time out.

The chain between you and the completion of a web request has many links: your computer, your router/modem, the ISP's equipment, DNS servers, numerous internet nodes between the ISP's initial node and this server and, of course, this server.

It can be a daunting task to figure out where it is hanging up.  Bottom line: if the page loads everything that you want, relax and enjoy.

BTW, most browsers have "Developer Tools" that can show you which of the multiple requests have not completed.  In Chrome they can be found in the menu (that set of horizontal lines at the upper right) under More Tools->Developer Tools.  Not the WHY but the WHAT.

The Network tab shows every background request for data the source url as well as if the request has completed and the time that it took.

I'm looking at that now and notice that one of those requests on this page has not completed: loader.white.gif <http://chrunners.net/forum/Themes/default/hs4smf/graphics/loader.white.gif>.  My browser, however, does not show the spinning circle.

I'm certainly going to investigate but, again, it does not matter for the usability of the site.

Ah, interesting, that gif is an animated one.  In a sense it never stops loading.

No complaints here, I just wanted to express my appreciation for the work you do to maintain this site.

So thanks, Mike.

A lot of people are grateful for your efforts.
I could be completely wrong about this.

It's not happening on my work computer. Let's just chalk it up to a 2006 Dell running XP and not worry about it.

Thanks for all you do Mike!

You are all welcome.

Or as we say here in Texas, "Thanks y'all"

I know what you mean...  Something seems different, but I can't figure out what it is!
