Yeah, it does it more when you post new threads instead of replying to one.

I've gotten a few timeouts in the last 1.5 weeks too. But, what I usually do is if I find that it's taking longer than usual I'll hit the stop button and wait a second, then try it again.

And sometimes if I'm writing a particularly long post and it's taking a while, I'll do a real quick select all and copy so I don't have to type it again when it times out. I'm using firefox and usually when I hit the back button, the reply box is all messed up and I have to go back to the forum and click on the thread again. After that I just go back to what I was doing and paste the message that I copied so I don't have to type it again.

And heck yeah, I'd chip in 20-25 bucks if you need it David.

$30 = 15 GBP

It's not that much money, really. I think David's argument was that upgrading from the old vBulletin to this one caused so many problems, what would the upgrade to 3.6 do?

I was only saying how I found it myself, it appears that different members get different results, I don't know why this should be, a techie amongst you will be able to explain I guess, all I know is that almost without fail, it gets there, even when it's time up, but I always go back & press "send" again, just in case.

It wouldn't do anything.
