I decided what I'mma gonna do tomorrow is use my brother/sister-in-law's computer to get into my account and see if it works any better on theirs.
That will tell me if it's indeed my computer and/or Windows XP that needs to be dealt with, or if the whole thing is LiveJournal's fault.
I might try moving a bunch more images off compy to the external to free up more memory ~ then see if installing Chrome will kill or cure the situation. Just a thought, thanks Van.
I think I may have a bit of Brian overload in the brain recently ~ since early August.
Anyway ~ For now, I've got other places to peruse (FB, Twitter, etc.), and other things to do IRL. Those places don't glitch out on me. See y'all later, dudes.
