I hate to give up on the board today because I might miss some of those messages since my last visit, but it is soooo slow. Even with DSL it is taking up to thirty seconds to change screens. I have run both my spyware programs so that is not the problem. My DSL modem is not blinking like crazy on the busy button. Anything else I might try?

When I am having troubles with my computer, I usually go to TrendMicro for their free online scan. They pick up viruses & spyware that my VirusScan Program misses. If you want to try them out - here's the website: http://www.trendmicro.com/en/home/us/enterprise.htm

My boyfriend told me about their site a while ago. He's got a serious geek streak ;) But damn is he smart!

I'm really slow today, too...and no spyware or viruses here...I run two anti-virus scans about weekly and spyware checks about twice daily.... Just a slow connection time today, and I have a normally very fast wireless connection... not much you can do on those days--I'm having the same problem. Could the weather where you are be affecting it?

Sometimes this site is really slow for me, but the rest of the internet is ok. I usually just wait a while and try again.

If everything is slow, then you may have spy-ware. Have you updated your spyware programs recently? The way to check to see if you have spyware is to press ctrl-alt-delete on your keyboard, then click on processes on the Windows task manager that pops up (This will show you everything that is currently running on your computer), scroll down the list and look under CPU, (this list will tell you how much time your computer processor is using for each program running), now if there is something usuing an abnormal amount of processor time and you don't know what it is... it is most likely spyware. This would slow everything down. If this is your problem let me know and I will tell you how to get rid of it.

I had the entire internet slow yesterday, but it wasn't spyware. I have a number of programs I use to snare about everything. It was actually just a slow connection--and today it's back to normal.

It seems to be better today. I keep my spyware and virus protection up to date. I actually use multiple spyware programs because one will not catch everything. I used to be a tech writer and learned quickly to recognize the general symptoms and fix any viruses, etc. quickly. I could not afford to lose hundreds of pages of a system manual because I wasn't vigilant. Those at the office used to laugh and say that I could look at a system and tell you which virus it had before we ran the detection software...especially if it effected Word documents. It was fun to catch them when the systems guys were saying there wasn't one. It was rare that I could show those guys up in any way.

The board is actually very fast, and this problem is likely your connection to the Internet, and/or sypware, viruses, etc.

One other person who had the same problem found out it was a problem with his modem.

Take care,

Scott

Ok, it must be my internet connection (DSL) at home that makes it slow. I have never had problems with this site anywhere else and the other places where I use the internet have faster internet connections (T1 and high speed cable).

    • Weird things people have said
      I've had people say strange things about celiac to me lately... Like someone said, "Oh I'm just a mild celiac so I don't have to worry about cross-contamination." And then someone else said that they're celiac but things have calmed down now so they can have a bit of gluten here and there. And I told my doctor that back in 2014 I thought I had been gluten free but I actually wasn't because I had been repeatedly glutening myself with an old colander. And he just looked at me like I was insane, like a colander?? Sure... I'm not crazy, right? Even if you have no symptoms you have to avoid cross-contamination because you can be doing damage internally right? You can never have 'just a bit'. And a colander is a big source of cross-contamination right?? I know all this but why do these other people not? Why does my doctor not know? So confusing and spreading misinformation... And then they look at me like *I'M* crazy.

      Look up FODMAPS.   That might clarify things for you.  There really are a lot of diet recommendations so make sure you bring a list of questions regarding foods to your doctor's  and dietician's appointments.  
    • Recovery?
      Thank you for sharing those web sites. I will look at them. We have been gluten free since December so it's been a while. Once, he had a gluten free beer, the kind that they take the gluten out, and his legs felt very heavy and had a more difficult time walking. I really don't want to experiment.  Although I am very careful about what we eat, I am concerned that some of our medication could contain gluten. Is there any easier way to tell if medication has gluten. I did find a website which listed drugs and known gluten but every drug was on it or was determined to be gluten free
    • fructose malabsorption and gluten intolerant
      I don't have celiac but doctors or amazed I don't so they told me to fallow the gluten-free diet like I have it... any way I was wondering if one can have corn, corn starch if they have fructose malabsorption. I am so confused on what I can and can't have.. i have an appt next week hopefully with a dietitian... also can you have sugar free stuff since it's not sugar.. I'm reading online and I'm getting a bunch of mixed info on both.

      Hi all.  Still feeling the same way this past week. I'm thinking of dropping dairy starting from today, I don't know if I have a problem with it or not, but I drink 2 coffees a day with milk. I'm just constantly tired all the time, and getting trough the day is pretty hard, I noticed a couple of weeks ago that my sleep was improving but the last couple of days I have been waking up at least 3 times during the night, then when I get up in the morning it feels like I have been hit by a bus, like I haven't slept at all. I keep waking up during the night needing to drink water as I feel dehydrated, I don't know why as I drink 2-3 litres of water everyday

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
