Taking into consideration the overall slow / unreliable internet here in Liberia – I've been having some trouble accessing the D-Word site over the past couple of months. Back in February, I posted something, and while looking for my responses, I could only seem to 'fully load' the site every couple of days... until suddenly, I couldn't load it at all. Basically, my computer (and the three other computers here I've tried it on) kept saying that the page had loaded, but all I could see was blank white. Today is the first time I've been able to properly visit the site since then. ... Anyone else ever had this problem? Could it be something about my IP address (I know some sites block IPs from places like Nigeria...)? And/or some setting I need to change? Any thoughts would be great – as I would obviously love to keep being able to access the site in future!

Sorry to hear, Arwen. Hate the idea you can't access us. Hopefully, Peter will read this soon and weigh in with his thoughts.
Thanks Doug – I hope so too. However, good news is that three days in a row now the site has worked for me! So at least that's a positive development.
Hi Arwen, I would guess that it's something related to your connection rather than The D-Word specifically. Have you had similar problems on other sites?
The Sound and Music topic seems to be ginked (is that a word?). Maybe too many simulposts about an hour ago. Can't seem to reply or get rid of the "read 1 new post after yours."
It seems to be fixed now, Bill. All hail Peter!
I goofed. I was in this topic, not that one. It's still stuck.
Hi, I've tried to change my profile picture so it looks more professional and have a foto in my group of fotos here labeled "April Tan" that I have selected as my main foto, yet my old profile foto remains.
Can we fix that? I wonder what I'm doing wrong. Thanks!
Image is everything and I want to project an image of diligence, truth, the Kino-Eye and hard work.
Mikhail is one of my heroes indeed, but I saw Ballet Mecanique today and I wonder if old Dziga had seen it.... more than a few similarities....and it was six years previous....
I have a question about up converting from SD to HD on a documentary that I filmed in 2000, but just completed. I don't know how or where to post it. Thanks for your help
I wonder if there might be way to make sub topics – for example, DSLR cinematography under the cinematography topic. The cinematography topic follows technological developments – it is all about the C300 these days – and I feel very low tech asking DSLR canon 5D questions.
DSLR's have a big enough user base to warrant it, I suspect.
