When I was at our site here yesterday afternoon, it looked the way it usually does - but when I returned this morning, well, either I'm loosing my mind or it's been changed, or perhaps my computer has developed a 'hissy'.

Hoping everyone else is seeing a completely white screen with only bright blue writing and no 'dividers' or lines, etc?? (It beats thinking I've lost my mind - gentle grin).
Never let your computer realize you are in a hurry or just typing the last few words of a vital document.

While outer events might make one happy or sad, happiness itself is entirely internal, and at all times completely within one's power.

That also happens to me, sometimes.
A reboot usually fixes it.

Whew! Thanks for telling me, tg1911 - off to reboot the computer, several times if necessary - gentle grin!

Thanks again,
Mara

That's never happened to me before..... I was on the site earlier and there wasn't anything wrong with it, so it seems that it's solely your computer throwing a "hissy fit"....

It's definitely related to the individual computer, because as I mentioned, it's happened to me, on more than one occasion.
Sometimes it fixes itself, sometimes a reboot fixes it, and sometimes closing Bleeping Computer and then logging back on fixes it.
But for the life of me, I can't figure out what causes it. :thumbsup:

It's happened to me to at times, and on several different computers on completely different networks and geographic locations.

My guess: Lots of BC traffic when it happens and only the text-type portions load.
