Every other page I try to load is coming up blank. I am having to backtrack & start over again. Anyone else having this problem?

I am.  I'm surprised I could even get to this page....  glad to know it's not just me.

Me, too. I can get all over the 'net and I can get to PBS, but as soon as I try/tried to log-on I'd get an error screen. Like Marilynn, I'm amazed I got this far - started this a.m. Not even sure if this message will go through. I received a book today and want to mark it received but kept losing the connection some how; hope I can do it now.....very frustrating. Of course, I could log off and read, I suppose.

I was having this same problem earlier today, but now everything seems to be loading fine.  I was beginning to think it was just my computer.

Yep. I've been getting a "server is probably busy" message on my end. I guess that means the server is pretty busy. ;-)

Yep, I was having the problem until about 2:30 when I shut down because of a nasty storm!  Hail, rain and winds up to 70 miles per. 

Everything is fine now.

I can barely do anything!  Keep getting those blank pages.  Sometimes reload works, sometimes not.  Its frustrating.

Yes.  Every time I click on anything, I get a blank screen.  So far, clicking the Refrsh button has worked to display the page.

I was having trouble yesterday and thought it was just me.  Came to the site today and it's still doing it.  Not having this problem on other sites.

Yep, been having problems myself.  Sometimes it loads sometimes it gives me the error page.  Looks like a problem with the website.

I had problems yesterday am and this am.  Sometimes I will click on something and it takes me out of the site.  Yesterday am, I could only get on long enough for me to see 0 people were online then it would kick me out.  At least this am, I can get on and stay on for a while.

yeah, they are definately having problems.  I keep having to hit F5 to reload the browser page.  I think it is a sign I need to go out and do yard work.

Yeah, last night and now today.  I have several labels I wanted to print but I guess I'll wait until tomorrow.  Hopefully whatever is going on will be done or fixed by then.

Me too!  It was really bad last night & I thought it could be from a number of people being on, but when it was 2:30 am and only 307 people on.,...  I wouldn't think that was it.

And I am having same issues today.  I hope it gets resolved soon. :)

Thanks for asking, because I too was thinking it was just me, but I could go all over the net with no loading problems, but here.
