Maybe it's just my crappy connection.  Apparently no one else has problems going into that topic, and I'm glad to see so many responders.  However, every time I open that topic, my computer suddenly starts freezing up and slowing down, and once it took like 15 minutes before I could even scroll around to look at comments.

My theory is that all those YouTube links clustered in there are immediately engaging with my computer, barraging my computer with various "cookies" etc that my computer has to process, even before I can resume normal navigation.

Again, this is not much of a problem if you have a normally good high-speed connection and/or a good computer.

Apparently, I have neither.paul-mccartney

Gah. Should have read this BEFORE clicking on the "Discovered any new music lately?" thread.

Wonder if that's going to happen to the YouTube thread. I posted my latest ones as links instead of embedded videos to be safe.

Check out my fan video for Paul's song "Appreciate" at YouTube and Vimeo.

I meant to add -- I usually don't have problems navigating threads that have a couple of YouTube videos.  I don't know why that particular one causes my computer so many problems -- either the sheer number of videos is doing it, or maybe one or more videos have extra encoding or something.
