The Smart Bitches have a link to an interesting discussion going on over at AAR.
Can I check it out? No.
I’ve been AAR-less since getting my high-speed cable modem, which was…2 years ago, maybe? I can occasionally go in through the back door—from a cached, Googled page, but it’s rare. And it’ll let me read a few threads, then BAM!
The problem is that I lose my Internet connection. It bogs down and comes to a halt while loading the page, and then my connection is gone. I can’t go anywhere without completely shutting my computer down, then restarting it to essentially reboot the modem. My cable company blamed AAR, somebody at AAR told me it was my cable company, and my cable company then countered by blaming Netscape. I use IE and Firefox, so there’s a good chance Netscape’s not to blame.
And AAR is the only site with which I have this problem. It pisses me off. While I find many of the people there quite scary, they have some wicked good conversations that I like to at least read, if not comment on. Like, for example, the conversation being referenced over at the Smart Bitches’.
EDIT: So over at the SBs’, Angie says:
And Candy, as soon as I saw your comment on AAR, I was counting down to how long it took you to write an entry over here. I knew that had your knickers twisted big time and I thought your reply was lovely! I wanted to stand up and cheer.
This is SO unfair!
