21. I had problems with DU from around 9:00 GMT to 14:00 GMT
The problems may have extended outside of those times but prior to 9:00 I was asleep and after 14:00 I was out shopping. No other site on the Internet was giving me problems. This was a problem with the DU site/server.

There does appear to be a problem with Internet Exploder and various sites using and this can be fixed either by blocking content from or switching to Firefox.

I recommend switching to Firefox anyway. Firefox 2 was better than IE (its only major failing was that it crashed almost as often as IE). Firefox 3 is better still and faster and almost never crashes even with intensive use. Oh, and Firefox complies with all relevant Internet and World Wide Web Consortium standards whereas IE goes out of its way to break them.

Actually, I'd recommend switching to Linux too. Why put money in Bill Gates' pocket for a pile of crap? But I can understand people not having facilities to back up all their data easily. However, if you have an old computer lying around that you rarely use, try Linux on that.
