    Angry Cave Man Issues

    I got into the whole computer world a lot later than most who hang out here...
    I was able to log on here post picture and make my self look way more computer savy than I actually am.
    Now a lot are using there smart phones.
    I am still using my trusty old Dell computer.
    I am pretty sure the web hosting sites have also made up grades to make posting on there sites /net works easier with a smart phone.
    There might have been an up grade up loaded by the wife to our computer.
    The wierd thing is the site has actually slowed down for me.
    By slowed down I mean I can type a sentence.What I typed does not show up immediately any more.
    There is a couple second delay between a key stroke and what appears in front of me on my screen.
    When I go back into what I typed to fix miss spellings the whole freaking sentence will blue out, high light instead of the miss spelled word.
    I really do not know what to do to fix this situation.
    I can't swing the price of a new smart phone right now.
    There has to be a way to get Mr Dell Mr Mozilla and this site to play better together.
    I kinda feel like I took the strong running small block out of the "Beast" and installed a worn out 4 cylinder....
    My key boarding has slowed down this much on this site.
    Its a "van thing". A life style you have to live to understand!!!!

    Wink Hey Cave Man

    If you are still able to club wild game and bring it back for charring over open fire, if you can still put a special smile on cave woman's face then putting pictographs on the cave wall in your spare time means you can spend a lot of time in the cave. Life must be good.

    Have you tried rebooting? Both the computer and your router will slow down over time as the cache fills. Powering down and back up clears this out.

    (The router is usually part of the 'cable box' these days)

    When I have problems with my computer acting weird I go to the control panel and open "restore to an earlier date". I'll go back to a date that everything was working fine and that usually takes care of the problem.
