    I'm having a hard time connecting to DP

    The connection to you is dodgy at best and takes a long time to connect, sometimes not connecting at all.

    Anyone have some idea what is going on?

    I've run a tracert but I'm not sure if posting it here is a useful thing to do...
    The media has lost it's mandate to report honestly. Should they improve or go away?
    If everyone had a bull**** meter, would it be as much fun?
    It's hard to match the burning, visceral hate a liberal can bring to bear.

    Re: I'm having a hard time connecting to DP

    I have had the same problem a few times over the last week. Most of the time I just wait awhile
    and finally it will connect. But once connected at times it is very slow to reload different pages?
    Today it's working fine.

    Some issues a day or 2 ago- they passed.

    I had issues about two days ago. DP would not always load and when it did the response was very slow.

    Been okay since then.

    Comcast has been out in the neighborhood fixing things - "Nodes" the teenager with a hard hat called them... "I'm from Comcast, and I'm here to help"

    But somewhere down the "backbone" as they call it there are issues connected to excessive data transfer - Netflix, sports streaming, hackers draining our information, etc. And for all the resources on the internet, no one will tell me why!

    So I give up. Lately it's been OK, so I'll take it. As Confucius says "Perfect is the enemy of 'it is what it is' "

    BTW, FWIW, I'm in Sacramento, CA.

    So am I. Once in awhile, it seems like DP is attacked with some kind of ISP instigator. After 24 hours or so, the problem is relieved. I just think, "damn it" and wait until DP and their ISP flush the intrusion. I'm no techno-geek so I just hang back and let RedAkston and those who know what they're doing take care of business. I appreciate that we have admins who are capable of controlling this kind of tech attack. Personally, I just back off until they have taken care of it.

    Didn't seem worthy of a new thread, but did the software change since I have been here last? There seems to be a lot of annoying gray boxes all over the place.

    Welfare (Food Stamps, WIC, etc...) are not entitlements. They are taxpayer funded handouts and shouldn't be called entitlements at all. Social Security and Veteran's benefits are 'Entitlements' because the people receiving them are entitled to them. They were earned and paid for by the recipients.
