I'm having trouble with viewing the text in the forums.  I see the topics, click on it, and I get the top of the page and the start of the blue border with nothing underneath.  I restarted my computer, and once in a while I can see the posts.  Refresh only works sporadically.  Anyone else having this problem?

I thought it was just me, but I'm having the same problem.  I click to read a topic and only part of the page is there.  Refresh didn't work either.

Yes, I had the same problem. However, PBS was down for a time this morning, and I'm sure it has something to do with that. The website has had problems for two days now. I'm sure they're working on it.

What Mary and Cindy described above is STILL happening!  I expect the site to go down again unfortunately.

Yes!!  Thought it was just my main computer, as it's been acting squirrelly!  Refresh works every other time or so for me.

Same problem here. Refresh works sometimes, but there's no real pattern to it. It almost seems random.

Ditto for me. I've been tring Safari as a browser since I was having so many problems on Firefox. I can now see my wishlist but when looking at my wish and reminder lists half the book covers are showing up as the blue,"no image available" deal. This gets weirder by the minute.

I have been having the same problem all day. If I go to another page and then come back it is usually fine.

It's doing it for me as well. Started for me last night. I hope it gets fixed soon. I need my PBS! :)

It's happening to me as well.  I switched from IE to Firefox and it's happening in both browsers.  it will show up sometimes if you keep clicking back and forth on the forum topics.

Me too. Also, it caused my browser to freeze earlier. I had to restart it.

Oh, good, I was about to ask if it were only me having trouble accessing the site in general, or if it just chooses to take itself online when I try to edit my assigned review titles at 3am :-)

FWIW, I use SeaMonkey, and am also having the "blue-no-image-sign-but-there-really-is-an-image-in-the-record-ha-ha" syndrome as well.
