But I don't think it's on your end. It looks like another dose of CS from the IT department.
Of course, listening is catch as catch can.
barfle wrote:TM, yes, I was logging on from work, and it was like watching paint dry. Other sites, for the most part, worked fine. The one other that did not was classmates.com, who have recently changed their bulletin board software, providing their paying users with a variety of glitches, new requirements for posting (like having to title every message with at least three characters ), and generally throwing a monkey wrench into everything. It's even bad from home, so I blame them.
Now that I'm home, all is lovely, I'm listening to "Dance of the Hours" (just missed Polovtsian Dances - drat!), and I have bandwidth and performance like I should.
Like I said, I think it's CS from IT. The tech sites work fine. But when it comes to "give me a break," it doesn't seem to be office policy. Oh well, six more years and I'm drawing a pension.

And when I started poking around this evening from home (where I have nothing in my computer or network to cripple phpBB), I noticed that there were entries in threads addressed to me, but the threads weren't marked as having new entries. I guess just looking at a forum from there marks the whole thing as being read.
So if you left me a message and I didn't respond, blame the IT department at the USPTO, please accept my apologies, and try again.
Can I listen to your station if I'm behind a firewall at work?
Unfortunately, some businesses do not allow employees to access internet radio streams at work, and disable such streams in their firewalls. This is considered a bandwidth issue. If you are behind a firewall, and you are having trouble connecting to *********, you might nicely request that your network system administrator make an exception for you. Tell him/her that our bandwidth is relatively small, and it will make you much more happy in your work.
