Every time I open an OP where brettyb has posted, my computer hangs up. What gives?

I'm guessing it's his avatar. I can't see the avatar so the thread is fine for me. I'm on Chrome for the mac. I can't see a lot of avatars.

Maybe if you turn off avatars temporarily (try user control panel) you can see the thread.

Hm.. my explanation would have been entirely different.

Hey coffeeguy, consider yourself lucky with that computer! It has a mind of its own, and it seems determined to protect you from running a high blood pressure.

Coffee, sorry my avatar is causing your computer troubles.. Its the same one I've had for years and i dont think there's anything unusual about it, but I'll try turning it off for you, though it will have to wait until I get home.

Thanks, I turned off all avatars and it seems to work now.

Chimes, no I want to read bretty's posts. Dont often agree with him, but he is certainly an informed and well written poster.

Who stole my 2 latest replies?

The one to brettyb, and the one to the OP?

Both posted less than an hour ago.

Yes, please?!
