For some reason chat seems to be frozen for me, just while I'm on my netbook. This is incredibly distressing to me, since this is the computor I am on most often.

I can get right up until the point where I click to go into a room, but then it sends me to a "loading resources" screen and stalls at 89 percent. This has gone on for days now, and I have tried restarting and refreshing and stuff a thousand times. It just goes back to the same spot.

I don't know why this is happening, or what changed. I was chating away, when the common occurence of my wireless going down for a moment happened, I got booted out. I haven't been able to get back in since.

This might be something no one can help me with, but if any one has encountered this problem before, I would be eternally grateful for some advice on how to fix it.

It could also be from a "loose" connection to your wireless. You could try resetting your wireless to re-establish a connection.

If all of the above doesn't work, then finding a solution will be mildly difficult. =/ This problem has happened before, and we haven't found any for sure fixes yet.

I cleared the cache, and it's working again! You are my favourite person in the world!

You own everything that happened to you. Tell your stories. If people wanted you to write warmly about them, they should have behaved better.
