Over the last several days (and this has happened on many occasions previously) I have gone to my blog only to have to wait for it to load for several minutes while I surf other sites on the net in several different tabs of my browser. Often times the page errors out, or loads eventually so that I can get to my dashboard. Other times I am completely missing (whited out areas of the dashboard) certain functions of the dashboard. There are countless other times that I can not get a post to publish when I have an image uploaded "with a description" of the image, but will post if I leave the description of the image blank. Other times I have tried to upload an image but am then missing the section (whited out) beneath the image to "send to the editor" at which time I have to abandon the post and come back to wordpress later to try again. On other occasions wordpress just wouldn't load at all and I would have to wait a day to try and access the dashboard again.
For instance, I have tried 4 times to send this post to wordpress and the connection times out. While that is going on, I opened Camino Browser (I am using firefox to post to this forum) and I try to go to the wordpress forums and it times out in Camino, so I try to visit my blog, and it times out. I then open Safari (I am using a Mac so these are Mac web Browsers) and I try to visit WordPress.com and it times out. So then (because I have a network of computers) I got over to my PC running windows XP SP2 which is getting an update from MS and I open the IE browser and try to visit my blog and it times out. So I continue chatting in my chat room, and and listening to my music over the internet and I will continue to try and repost until it finally works.
What the <b>heck</b> is going on with wordpress?
