When Tom set up this version of the forum, there were some problems, and if you could not get on using one address the other usually worked. Anyway I bookmarked both addresses, not sure which way round they are, but every so often (it happened today) one does not work and the other does(otherwise I would not be able to post this).
I have had on one day some funnies on display, which sound similar to what has also happened, and I am on Windows. It only happened once, and it seems to be one of those things you have to put up with these days.
It is probably a combination of factors, and one small software update somewhere resolves the issue, until someone else upsets the apple cart.
