OK, I think I know what the problem is. Some javascript got compressed to speed up loading times, but I think it affects the layout. I'll see if I can get it fixed.

Cheers - let us know when the fix is in so we can keep an eye out for it post change.

I pop into this thread, and look at my clock -- it says 5:21 (pm).

Then my computer starts slowing down, my mouse cursor turns into a spinning blue ball, the screen goes hazy washed white, I can't type or scroll -- can't do anything.

It's 5:24 before I can even read Joe's comment at the end of page 1, and then click over here to page 2 and read the comment by trcanberra.

And now my clock says 5:27 as I get ready to post this.

That is simply intolerable and ridiculous for such a simple thing I wanted to do.  I should have been in and out of here by 5:22 at the latest.

We* think the problem is fixed now, but if anyone spots this happening again please leave a reply here.

<geek explanation>It looks like the problem was caused during an attempt to speed up loading times by combining CSS and JavaScript, and making JS load after all the content - in theory making the whole page load a bit quicker. It's one of the things Google suggested in their "How can I improve my site's performance?" guides. I suspect in this case the page layout relies on JS to render properly, and it can't be loaded after the rest of the page.</geek explanation>

*'We' is me and Pothi, who set up, administers and troubleshoots my server, and is generally brilliant at tech issues that leave me scratching my head. If anyone needs server admin or other similar services do consider employing him. Remember when this site used to crash all the time? That was before Pothi came along.
