Thank you Rose... :) The hubby called Verizon yesterday to tell them what was going on and they told us it was because the port/hub that we're on is over-crowded and that they will try to place us on a less crowded port. They have already done this a couple of times and it still does the same thing.
Yesterday was just a really bad day as it was on but really slow. It was almost like it was non-existent at times and it was driving me up the wall as I couldn't really do anything on the net yesterday... :(
And by the way, you have the required points needed, so now you just need to make some more posts to reach 30 and you should be a full member in no time... ;) Just go over to the Off Topic sections and post in the many story/word games that's over there as that will quickly get your post count up... :)
