Aargh! Error message and pop-up on the same post!

Heh. I was trying to get from email notifications to a comment about mosquitoes by Anna (@LadyDuck). I clicked on the email notification and got the error message with which many of us are familiar. F5 allowed me to get to her comment, but then a pop-up engulfed the page. After I uttered a couple of oaths, I was able to get to her comment my "x-ing out" of the pop-up ad. I immediately thought of the cartoon I'll attach. How is MyLot performing for you today? I'm tempted just to get back to my book. I got a few paragraphs written this morning.

Things are going smoothly right now. I'm still here, and have only gotten a handful of pop-ups in the last hour or two.

@JimBo452020 the Horse away? MyLotters away? The latter works, rhythmically.

Are you among the anointed ones who rarely get error messages or pop-ups?

When myLot takes a long time to load on my iPad I’ll turn on the “Airplane mode,”with makes it stop and tells me my computer doesn’t have connection, then I’ll turn it back off and refresh the page. That usually makes the page load.

Interesting. I've never heard of "airplane mode." But them I'm still living in the 20th Century. Silly me.

@TheHorse — I don’t know if Android devices have that. It basically shuts the WiFi off.

I really do not get many errors here, maybe now and then. I am glad I don't that would be annoying.

@TheHorse I find those the most funny and irronic, too. It's almost like they've suddenly become mind readers, lol.

I've been hit by the error screen a couple of times in the last few days. That cartoon says it all. I'm glad you worked on your book.

You're not getting those annoying pop-ups? They're still there for me. I'm glad you enjoyed the cartoon. I love Calvin and Hobbes and read it daily (a testament to my regularity).

@TheHorse No, because I have adblocker. Calvin and Hobbes are always good.

Yeah, they always annoy me. I thought the problem might be on my end, so I deleted cookies, etc. Same thing happening again today. Maybe I'll do a reboot and see what happens.

@TheHorse Hopefully, the reboot helps. Did you get pop-ups before?

I think you might be getting my error-messages too, I've had one in two months. But that was when I tried to open your post. Maybe you've got some kind of curse hanging over you?

I tried 6 time before arriving to open this page Colin. MyLot is not performing as smooth as it did after Bugs made the fix. I do not get the pop-ups, but slow pages and errors.
