    Angry do you hate the "XXXX items remaining" wait at the home page?

    i've made the message board my short cut to avoid this, but every once in a while, i click the coachella sign and i gotta wait on the backwards countdown from 1,5XX items. it's just a annoying.

    crap? is it just me?

    i am no a work computer...

    not that i know of. it's a school's computer - CSULA, to be exact. i don't want ask why cos i think i'm not supposed to be on here, but it's just frustrating.

    in hindsight... what a pathetic reason to start a thread...

    i have the forum as my shortcut. it's just when the countdown start, the damn pc thing freezes til it finishes.

    it doesn't really happen often, just often enough to make me start this thread. to reiterate - sad...

    It happens to me too on my work computer when I accidentally click on the Coachella sign. I was so used to clicking at the top to bring me to the forum home page but with the redesign it's the link that brings you to the main page and the countdown starts and the page eventually freezes, only on my work pc though. I imagine it's because all softwares aren't up to date or maybe it's the web filtering they use that jams it up.

    Lol I can't believe someone started a thread about this. I have the same problem when I click on the main page. Now I just type in coachella forum.

    i'd never started a forum before and it's the first thing that popped into my head. i'm surprised people actually replied.

    but now (at work, at least), i have the forum as the shortcut and NOT the homepage.

    Just experienced this myself on the computer here in the library at school. Now I know what you were talking about.
