I am having trouble with one post on this forum. My computer "locks up" whenever (three times) I have clicked onto it to read this post. It is on the Occult 101 board, the post is "Does Magic Really Work?", Is it a script? or something else my computer is having a hard time with?  Anyone else having these problems?

I haven't been having any trouble with it.  My first suggestion would be to close your browser, then reopen it and try again.  If that doesn't work, try clearing your cookies and cache (exactly how to do this will depend on your browser) and then restart the browser again.  Sometimes a browser just gets hung up on something and needs "kicked" to shake it loose.

I don't see anything special there that should be giving you a problem. The only thing I can think of might be some image that is giving your browser trouble, but there's not even any images other than avatars and sig images.

It's possible that completely clearing your browser cache might help, if something got corrupted on the original download that cause the page to blow up your system, every time you go back to that page, the corrupted problem item would reload from the cache repeating the blow up issue.

I will try that.

Thanks all.

Oh my gosh, that is so strange. I've been having that same problem for the last 2 days, and now just don't bother trying to open it anymore. I wonder what it is?

Scrupulously austere in its order
Of white and black
Ice and rock; each sentiment within border,
And heart's frosty discipline
Exact as a snowflake'
