  • Question: YL & Facebook?

    I just noticed when I click "New Posts" to refresh the new posts list, at the bottom of my screen where it normally tells me what action it is taking example, "Waiting on yardlimits.com", it also says "AK.Connect.Facebook.com."

    WHY? Anyone know?

    It's a FB Connect plug-in that allows connecting to YL thru one's FB account. Been around for quite a while.
    NS should not require warm up exercises. We get enough exercise jumping to conclusions, flying off the handle, running down our bosses,knifing friends in the back, dodging responsibility and pushing our luck.

      Oh. I knew about the Facebook option. I have never used it and just noticed the Facebook connect thing at the bottom. I thought it might be on my end.

      My laptop has been acting funny again. Dragging real bad on sites like eBay. Not loading the whole page on the first try. I thought that what I saw might be a clue as to why.

      Thanks

          Ha! If that's it, I've caught something that can't be found. I just knocked the dust off my old Dell and it acted the same way. I think it is the crappy Internet speed here.

            It's called latency....which is a unique symptom...but the problem is compounded when the site you are accessing grabs things from other sites....which themselves may be experiencing latency....Eventually the site you are accessing will time out and go on to the next piece but you may end up with an incomplete page.....

              Maybe so. I know that I can refresh and it pops up with no problem. I was timing out BAD the other day trying to upload some photos on an antique forum. My speed here sucks donkey butt.

                A slow connection is probably worse than no connection.....
