I have noticed that when I click for the forum at the F&SF site, I only get once chance at it. That is, when I have visited the forum and returned from it, if I have something I've decided to check out, I have to reboot my computer to do it, because hitting forum won't bring up the forum a second time while remaining online.

This has been so right along, and I was pretty accustomed to it, but I have found that on the Analog Site's links page, the first link I hit comes up, but thereafter clicking for a link does not operate any more until I have rebooted. This is also true of their blogs--I can only look at one each online period.

The same is true of the Asimov's links page and blog page. They have a similar page, to the point that hitting something on the Analog page registers as a hit via a color-change on the Asimov's links and blog pages. I have not experimented with hitting an Asimov's link after hitting an Analog link yet, but I suppose I'd get a dud there too, considering the color changes, unless I went offline first.

Now I have found that if I hit an Analog link, I don't even get F&SF's forum the first time; this has happened three days in a row. To get here today I used a bookmark instead, rather than re-booting. Why I did that was to shortcut the "Observer Effect", my methodology being pure science.

Hmm, I wonder where this situation exists at? Not with my server, I hope.

I think a forum is getting pretty slow-moving when no one will inform me whether I am approaching an anomaly. The title does have a question in it.

It sounds to my uneducated self like a problem that is more likely to be found on your computer than elsewhere.

Is a computer an anomaly?

I have considered the problem to be with my computer right along. Nightshade, for instance, wouldn't short-count anyone, and the Worx Group comes across honest and with integrity.

Well, that's a good idea, except when I didn't keep up my cookies on one site (classmates dot com) I lost my effectiveness at posting at that site. Cookies are an either-or proposition, either a help or a pestilence, sometimes both at once. One of the banes of existence, actually, unless they aren't.
