    slow response from the server.

    User clicks Submit first time and then waits, and waits, and waits.
    Thinking it got lost, user clicks a second time.

    Unless packets actually get dropped, both user-clicks will arrive at the server
    as individual CGI requests, eg POSTing your reply. This is why T.S. has some
    sophisticated software to attempt to eliminate 'duplicate posting'. :)

    No I didn't click a second time.. One time only.. Yes there is a new server.. But just bringing it to Julio attention.

    I saw one of those instances for you and fixed it. I haven't noticed it with any other replies though...

    Hi tipstir,

    Thanks for the info. This is an odd occurrence, is it still happening? Because like SNGX pointed out we have not noticed anything similar to this since the server move.
