when i submit a new post i can briefly see my avatar, but apart from that it's invisible to me. a couple of people have said that they can see mine just fine, so i'm guessing the problem is on my end. i tried clearing my browser cache as suggested by lord icon but it didn't help. any ideas?

Are you connected via a router?

It may just be the fact that your not logged in, Members need to be logged in now to view avatars.

Stereopathic. How long ago did you unplug from the current during at least 1½ hours and reset your router? I can tell it needs it every now and then to clear its cache!

i've never done that. i didn't even know you were supposed to do that. but it has been behaving very poorly for a couple of months now. i will do it later today when i have an opportunity. i'll let you know how it turns out. thanks, Joseph.

Really stereopathic i expect you will see it solved that way! :) When you go to sleep, take the router off the current. Tomorrow: put the current back on, and reset the router. :) I recently did it again myself, and it solved my internet bahaviour strangeness.

Download and run Ccleaner (http://www.ccleaner.com/)

Now open a Command Window and type...

ipconfig /flushdns
ipconfig /renew
