    Hi EM...

    I was in chat yesterday and every now and then the interface starts going loopy Mike ( Chat moderator ) told me it happens when a picture has been posted or there is heavy traffic ( there were 7 of us )

    A refresh (F5) clears the problem... Killivolt was on a mac, so he doesn't have an F5 key and kept on logging out and back in to clear it.

    Does it lose the style sheet / formatting?

    No! the bottom line seems to jump up and down and you can't see the latest post... Then when you post, you can't see what you posted...

    That happened to me a while ago. Usually it happens when someone posts a non-image link inside image tags. If you're in chat now I'll log in and show you what I mean.

    EDIT: It appears this only happens in Chrome. Firefox works fine, but Chrome displays a broken image icon and the chat gets jumpy.

    I think I've seen the jumpyness in regular threads. Not consistant at all and rare.
