Is anyone else having multiple failures when downloading various Web pages, including this one?

I try two or three time to download, then give up. A different page will load correctly. Then I'll try the original one fifteen minuets later and it loads fine.


Thanks;

Fred

No problems with that here Fred.....it's probably a browser hitch of some kind ?
Were'nt you thinking of giving Chrome an opportunity ?

Hi guys;

I am using Chrome right now on my HP (big HAL). Haven't done any experimenting yet with other browsers or on HAL-JR. Just had the same problem now checking my e-mail. If problem persists will do more digging.

Could possibly be my ISP (Netscape/AOL) but don't recall server overload being this bad before. Have missed a page or two in the past, but not several in a row.

Thanks for input, at least eye nose (Ant) it's something on my end and not Internet wide.

Just a thought......pages missing from sites you visit often or less so......retained on the slowest or fastest areas of disk ? A Boot Time Defrag may do the trick ?
It seems to me whenever there's inconsistancies; it's worth running memory diagnostic or CHKDSK ?

Hi Mogs;

Good thoughts. I will bear in mind if problem persists. I tend to think Anthony's on the right track though. Still having same problem as we speak. As I'm on dial-up (yawn) My 'connection' icon in the sys tray has both a send & recv 'light'. Chrome is 'sending' a call for the webpage but (when problem exists) I'm not receiving anything back before Chrome times out and gives me the 'Web page unavailable' raspberry.

As this is getting old quickly and I have several e-mails yet to do, I'm going to switch machines and let JR have a go. I'll let you know what happens.

OK, happy news, e-mails and stuff is done.

Had no problem when using the Acer (HAL-JR) on Chrome. If problem persists on the HP then I'll have a look under the hood (bonnet?). Hopefully this was an isolated incident.

One thing I did not consider. Not sure if it's observed elsewhere, but today (Sunday) was Mother's Day here in the States. Possibly the rotten little buggers were to lazy to visit Mom in person or even call her on the telephone and sent an e-mail instead.

I'll make a post in a day or two to finish this.


Thanks;

Fred
