    Q&A - Can't make a new thread?

    I can't make a thread in the Q&A for some reason.

    Sorry to hear that.

    But without details, the most anybody can offer is a little sympathy. Could you please elaborate on your difficulty just a bit?

    Are you getting an error message? (And by this I mean, please quote to us the exact error message you're getting, if any.) Is the board timing out with a web error? (Which error code?) Is it hanging at the "one moment" message? Is it making unfounded aspersions about your antecedents? Did it threaten to kill a puppy for every thread attempt unless its demands were met? Etc.

    Actually, it was a test to see first of all if it would get through here and I was going to go back and elaborate if it did. For at least 10 minutes, it didn't and I gave up.

    So, I'm going to go try again and see if it goes now. Or if it already did, I don't know. Something quite odd is going on though.

    I'll report what happens.

    Okay, so it took a ridiculously long time, but it made it now.

    Before, I would hit submit, it would sit motionless for about 60 seconds, and then it would display a totally white page. Done, that's it. I retried all day and kept getting the same thing, so I thought I'd try a thread here to see if it would go. Got the same thing, refreshed the page and my thread wasn't there. So I gave up. Came back, and here it is.

    I looked at the new thread and figured out what the problem was.

    The question posed creates an endless loop paradox and you confused the BAUT server. Please don't do that anymore. Please?

    Well the question I had earlier wasn't even related to that, lol. Funny anyhow.

    The BAUT server resides on Neptune?
