Last time I wrote on this, it suddenly reappeared when I made a new posting so I could delete the new posting. I figure that will probably be the case again.

Needless to say. Whenever I add to my hardware thread, it disappears until I post a new post, odd eh?

Yup, just as I suspected. As soon as I made another new post, POOF it appeared.

To answer a few questions: Doesn't matter what browser I'm using. Doesn't matter if I have the cache on or off or check for new pages every time, periodically, never, or automatically.

It just happens. Really odd/frustrating IMO.

The board software on the host caches the pages to "improve performance". The result of this is that stuff doesn't appear on the board because you are always served an old copy.

You have to refresh every page that you look at in order to get an up to date copy.

This results in two page requests for every page.
