Is the computer actually freezing or is it stuck waiting on something to load?

Uh, oh! I actually hope Pastor Rick comes back or HG shows up. :cry

What I normally do when replies are slow or things freeze is clean my computer and then defragment it. That usually speeds everything up.

Here is the link to how I clean up my computer. ]Click here


I will also go look at Runboard Support and see if anyone else is having this issue. I am not.

Tell me exactly what it is doing, Shelle.

It only happens here Susa, does not do this on other sites.

It only happens when I try to reply. It slows down the letters I can type, then stops all together. Sometime if I wait a minute or two it allows me to resume typing but very slowly.
It is slowing to a crawl now. Is this enough info?

Shelle, I am going to go report this. This does not sound like a normal slow down from your own computer.

I will let you know what I find out.

Shelle, does this only happen at Susa's Sunroom, or other Runboards, too? What happens if you try to post a reply to ,offset=0#post263167]this thread?

Edit to add: Feel free to post your answer in that thread, if it's easier.

My computer still races when I'm at Susa's board, about to reply to a post. Nowhere else does this happen, on any other board or elsewhere on the Net; just here.

I need to unanimate some smilies.

I will fiddle with that later. I have to figure out what to delete or unanimate.

Re: Susa, HELP


shelle,do you use Firefox? I do and I put this on to block most ads which I think could slow down the computer. Every site has a different amount. This forum shows that I had 6 out of 61 ads blocked. I guess the ones blocked must be "trouble makers". :giggle

Here's the Ad Block Plus that I downloaded.

Whatever you do, please don't block the Google ads at Runboard. Those ads help pay to keep Runboard going.

Susa, I might be able to decrease the file size of some of those smilies, without getting rid of the animation. Before you do anything with them, let me give it a shot. :)

MissDaisy, there are no ads on this board. I pay to have them eliminated.


Shelle, have you uploaded any new programs lately?

Before: <edit> 633 bytes
After: <edit> 267 bytes

Edit: Removed graphics above so I could delete them from my site without causing problems.

Now I'll try one of the animated ones.

Ah, true. I looked while logged out, but I see you have them disabled for logged in users. That's a good way to extend your board's premium, without making your members see ads. :)

I indexed it with a maximum of 20 colors. :)

I did the same with this animated one, and also used Gimp's "optimize difference" feature.

Before: <edit> [sign in to see URL]
After: <edit> [sign in to see URL]

Edit: Removed graphics above so I could delete them from my site without causing problems.

I might be able to get that down even further by using a smaller maximum number of colors. :)

Edit: Yep, now it's [sign in to see URL] instead of [sign in to see URL]. :)

Susa,I checked the list and the ones it is stopping are things like [sign in to see URL],[sign in to see URL] and active [sign in to see URL]. It says they are "third party". I don't have a clue why they are blocking things like these. Ad block does allow all the emoticons and [sign in to see URL] and script etc.

I don't understand why they call it "ad"blocker now. :giggle

I didn't know an ad blocker would block those stat sites, but I'm guessing it's because they try to put a cookie on your computer. Thank you for not blocking Analytics. :)

No Susa, it has been a couple of months since I have uploaded any new pics or programs.

I don't understand this, but it does seem to be only here (haven't tried the other runboards yet, so don't know yet about them) I know that it doesn't happen on Boomfox or at the Stew. I am going to try one more thing with my Norton and do a restart just to see if it may still be only my computer giving me a headache.

I compressed 6 smilies that originally totaled [sign in to see URL], and are now down to [sign in to see URL]. It's not much (yet), but let's see if that helps a little after she replaces them.

No worries, Happy Geezer. Have some :popcorn, and watch us work some magic... hopefully. :laugh


Edit to add: I currently have 123kb reduced down to 76kb (61.8% of the original file size), but haven't given them all to Susa yet.

Re: Susa, HELP


Here's the answer to my typing cursor freezing periodically (for whatever). If I'm posting here and have another browser tab loaded with either USA Today or Foxnews and when they refresh their news page my typing cursor locks up until the refresh is finished. The same thing happens when my antivirus updates it's definitions.
