    I too have been having the same problem, and sometimes while I'm on it will bump me off, making me have to begin all over again. Now that I know it isn't just me, I'm beginning to wonder what is causing this.

    There is nothing on this end that would do that.

    IMG_1344.GIF It's fine today ,maybe it's just my iPad thinking it knows better than me again ...
    Whenever I do a huge update on it ,which I done, about two weeks ago ..it's has a few little glitches .
    I will have to look into getting another laptop ,then if the iPad "plays up" it can sulk in the corner and I will go use the laptop .

    Where do all you ladies find the neat little characters? All I use are the ones available here. I have an iPad as well, and I'm still trying to figure out all the little actions and gizmos.

    It sounds like it's not connecting and it may be because you are so far out (now that could be a compliment, lol). But seriously, I have issues due to circumstances around my, small town. I'll just jump through the hoops it asks me to, and eventually it is back to normal. Life on the "internet highway" never a dull moment;)

    Do you ever check your "download" speeds at a place like speedtest.net?? I do, because if my signal is around the 50 mgps (download speed, or how fast it takes me to download a site) it's at it's best here, than it's not my internet connection. If my internet connection is slow, like way down there from the 50, then it's my connection, my internet provider;)

    Cool idea on the smilies Kate, thanks;) I can't get Safari, I tried and I can't remember why I couldn't now, LOL, but I have another browser that I like, and I'll see if I can google more smilies, love smilies;)

    I get disconnected from the site from time to time too but it has to do with my Internet connection because it happens elsewhere as well.

    I know it's not ny iPad, because it works quickly, and all my other sites work just fine. The only place it happens is here on this forum.

    You guys ought to try laboring once under "dial-up", as the only service available to us in Missouri was, and no further complaints regarding today's Hi-Speed would be forthcoming.

    I had a 56K per second modem, which most often downloaded to my PC at around 10K, stuff went out, like email messages, at less than 5K. Know what that means? An image was impossible to receive, or send. A 1Meg image would sit sending for 2000 seconds. You figure out how long that is. During that send, the system "timed out", meaning the maximum time allotted by practice denied the send. Think it wasn't exasperating?

    Small wonder I never really got into internet until experiencing higher speeds. Frank

    We don't have that privilege to have a home phone @Frank Sanoica ,we live in a fairly new estate ( 10 years old) with modern times,hardly anyone connects a home phone, we requested one but we had to dig the trench to have the the line laid from our electricity meter box to the street ,however considering we both had mobile phones we decided to only have incoming calls at home ..which we can't or want to change as we have a new system being laid out Australia, at this stage it starting cost for the NBN ..is $100 a month..so it's out of our price range
