Some odd things have been happening in the last half hour (or less):
• Clicking on my ID at the top right does not give me my updated/"latest" profile page but shows a previous page for the list of My Recent Threads. I just tried it again and it shows an old version of it. It occurs even after I clear my browser cache. [I refreshed it a third time and the "updated" page then loads.]
••[Coincidentally I noticed that just before I did the third refresh this "FRAM Extra" Flash ad loaded with video and sound - and which I COULD NOT halt or pause - on the page where I am composing this new thread. Any bearing on the issue?]
• When I clicked on at least two threads - including Melanie Wong's last thread on this board - I am unable to access it and I get a "500 Internal Server Error" message.**
• Hmm, I just tried to open up "Site Talk" in a new tab and I get the same error message.**
• Last night, I could not get Chowhound pages (like my profile) to load around 1 or 2 am EDT (I think).
** (Copy and paste of the 500 Internal Server Error message):
