Erm, added .gif to your link url, and I see what you mean!
Had it a coupla times, but a refresh normally cures it for me.
Also had it load without any formatting a coupla times, an ugly text only version. Sad

I have seen this - but only when my Systems HDD (20MB) is just about full. Deleting temp files, etc. always solves it.

I used to have a 20Mb hard drive and it was massive!!! I couldn't believe it when they bought out 40Mb hard drives, and could never imagine how I could possibly fill that much. Now I have just over 400Gb of video alone!!!

Them's where the days.

Sorry for going off topic! I've only had this a couple of time, usually when there's been server problems and everythings slow I think.

Absolutely right - I meant 20GB.

It's about 5 years old and next time I need to re-install XP I will put it on one of the larger drives.

Anybody remember EDS8?
They were big , both literally and metaphorically. Yes, 8 whole Megabytes of data on a single removable disk, weighing in at about ten kilos.
And then EDS30s came in. Thirty megabytes, wonders will never cease, the world was your lobster. :lol:

I remember being able to back up entire HDD's to floppy (OK, a coupla floppies) as a practical solution. :lol:

I still get confused when trying to order desktop machines for work.
For some reason its hard to get hold of 4GB HDD's these days, apparently 40GB is doable sometimes, but 80GB is the norm.

I reckon 8MB would be a little too much of a regression though.

Remember when the Bios on many motherboards couldn't see more than 500mB and you had to use software to fool it into thinking that a drive was smaller than it was Smiley

I still have a couple of of drives in my junk box that are around 500mB

I also remember when microsofts flight simulator program came on 2 floppies. :roll: The latest version now comes on a DVD Smiley

I suppose im the unfortunate one.

The smallest drive ive ever seen was a 500mb which was in a top of the range 60Mhz system. That was donated to me by my wifes father when we first got together ( broken off course ).

Other than that I started off with a 133, 1Gb hdd and 32mb EDO ram. I very quickly scrapped that system and built my first one.

Wow 133 >> 800Mhz was one hell of a jump. For a whole 30 minutes I couldnt keep up with the computer yanno :p
