One interesting thing that I have noticed:  If you can paste a message in the box before the red line at the top of the page reaches the right margin, you will not get the database error.  I just did that in a post for the Joke of the Day.  I posted my cut and paste joke message so fast that the database error just couldn't keep up.   ;D

What sorcery is this?!?  I'm not sure what red line you mean, but this sounds like dark magic to me...

When I open a message box there is a thin red line that moves across the top of the page, from left to right, just above the black forum banner and below my Firefox browser's line of tool boxes, address and search box. Once the line reaches the right-hand side of the page the forum database (or whatever) seems to gain control of the message box.   ???  I assume that represents the progress of the complete downloading of the forum information.

Huh - I see it now.  It's a proper "thin red line" on my screen, almost invisible - and it takes mine about 1/4 to 1/2 a second to zip across the screen and disappear.  Fast internet connection?  Not compared to most people I know...
