    that's pretty odd for sure! Is it always happening? Did you upgrade anything or change browser settings?

    Is anybody else getting this or is Lisa the only lucky one?

    I get the same occasionally, when BYC is really busy.

    My neighbor had an issue like this. It wasn't their computer but a combination of a dialup connection and a very busy forum. Their computer never did it even during peak periods on BYC when using my satellite connection. Just during super busy forum times when they where on dial up.
     
  5. Hi Rob! It was weird because I've never seen that message pop up before, but it's stopped for now.
    It wouldn't let me copy the message but it said someone might be trying to sneak in through this domain-something. It was a pop-up asking did I want to authenticate something even though it didn't match the domain name????
    I just X'd out the boxes every time and will run a scan later to see if someone funny tried to sneak in.
    Might've just been a glitch like Kstaven and Ranchhand described.

    We'll keep an eye on it. Fortunate for us, if it is a systemic problem on BYC we usually get about 200 pm's 50 emails and 2 phone calls. [​IMG]
