    Why can't I load this thread?

    http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=244626

    Of course it's probably my fault for highjacking the thread and loading it up full of images and copy/paste smilies ... :eek: but I'm still curious as to why the first page won't load all the way. :confused:

    What is wrong, flushing the cache didn't help?

    And speaking of a good flushing and a specific thread... :eek:

    It doesn't have anything to do with you. It appears that one of the posts is trying to load some smilie images from another site that is either being slow or not responding at all.

    Yes, it was your fault - your linked GIFs weren't loading. I removed the links.
    Actually, it did. ;)

    Does resetting Safari do the same thing as flush the cache? And yes, it's a goofy thread, but I think a lot of us had fun with it; I know I did. :p

    It has nothing to to with your cache - the linked GIFs weren't being downloaded, so they were never cached.

    Resetting safari resets everything: removes all of your cookies, removes all of the auto-fill stuff and flushes the cache, etc. Basically it resets Safari back to the way it was before you had every used it(except your bookmarks, I think). Flushing your cache only deletes the files your computer has cached in order to speed up the loading of websites you visit a lot.

    No worries, and I didn't delete anything except for the broken links. :)
