Is it just me?

I could not get the website to load all weekend - no internet problems here on any other sites, but Canadian Gardening would not load for me since Friday. Apparently that doesn't have been a problem for some of the rest of you, but it was frustrating for me!

Wasn't just you. There were slowness issues. Would take forever to connect.

It's very frustrating, sometimes I just give up. I had an issue with it going back two pages when I hit the back button too.

I heard rumours its all Marc's fault. Something about him trying to remotely turn on web cams.. If he sends you cutesy pictures of " look what my dog did " and wants you to click this little viewer program install to see them, don't do it .
What he won't do to try to fix his limp pickles ....... tsk tsk tsk :roll: :twisted:

I've never been kept out of CG but it is slow to load.

It's working fine this morning , but it was clunky over the weekend.
It's more fun to blame Marc than Canadian Gardening's servers.

yip, it's all Dumbo's fault. All those rude shocking links he posts. The Peach one was the worst, it forces you to watch the whole thing, whether you like peaches or not. :shock:

Thanks for the feedback, folks! And good to know that Monsieur Marc is at the hard of all our problems. Tee Hee!

I might add, today everything is Tickety Boo and happiness. But the long weekend was not happening for me here!

heh I used to do stuff like that years ago.

@countrychic, Admit it. You like the peach. Say it!

I'm not sure if that's good or bad.
