    Ok, this is hard to explain, but here goes.

    My talkbass seems to be running behind whats actually happening. For example, I'll click on a thread that, say, has 21 replies (just over 2 pages) but when i get to the thread it'll only go up to post 17 or something. I can get around this by clicking on the "goto last post" button, but it's still a little annoying. when I look at, say, the off topic forum from the forum list, It shows that thread x should be at the top of the list, but when I go inot the forum it shows thread Y at the top, when thread Y is older than thread X. Also, I made a thread a little while ago, and now I can't find it! It was asking about the something awful forums, and so it may have been deleted, but I am more inclined to think that the screwiness that is occuring when I'm on talkbass is at fault. Bassically it feels like it's lagging.

    I'm not sure if I explained this right, but do you have any suggestions?

    It sounds like you may be viewing cached copies of some forum pages. I wonder if your ISP caches websites that its users frequent? Or, your browser may not be getting the latest 'real-time' version of the page. Doing a page refresh in your browser would confirm or rule out this hypothesis...
