Question Intermittent private message problem

Don't know if it's part of my computer trouble or whether they get switched on and off like a light bulb, but about half the time when I'm trying to message someone today my PM has been white screening itself when I'm trying to send it, I had computer trouble all weekend so I don't know if my private messages messing are another part of the computer trouble or whether something's wrong or what's happening??????? idk if this will post cause over the weekend I had trouble posting as well ....... took several attempts to post some stuff and even then I got no idea how many times some of my posts went through, I was probably spamming

I tried PMing another member this morning, about half an hour ago or something, and it just would not accept sending the message????? It did send eventually but cause I had to keep re-typing it it ended up being a shorter message than what I wanted to send and I just hope a short response didn't worry or upset who I was trying to contact .......???????

Sorry, there are no technical issues with the servers or forums.

So if you don't provide the technical information we ask for (at the top of every post in this forum), sadly, there's not much I can do to help troubleshoot the problem further.

I find that if i'm wanting to write a long response to someone, I'll open up a word document, type what I need to, log in to the forum, and then paste it in to the message.

the forum does time you out (or log you out) after a certain amount of time

I *think* it's something to do with my computer, for some reason though it seems to do it worse on mornings than it does at night, idk why

Probably my computer being a old fart for now it seems to be behaving (until it hears what I said!)

So am I right in assuming that my PM messages are not getting switched on and off? And not by me, I mean

All I know for sure is it randomly white screens and won't let me click anything on the forum, sometimes when I'm starting threads, sometimes when I'm replying to threads and sometimes in PM, it's been intermittently doing it since the weekend and idk what's got into this old fart of a computer
