For two days now the right column of the home page will not load, after numerous refreshes, trying it in Firefox, IE, Google Chrome, trying it on both my desktop and laptop computers.

The top right feature box appears - but is empty every time as well.

Maybe, after about 6-10 tries, the page will fully load.

    Suggested to user that it might be an intermittent slow connection or that perhaps upgrading flash (because the ads use flash) may help.

    Nope -- it was your little Bernie Sanders sign up box that was hanging up. You seemed to have removed it, and I can get on again. Not my connection AT ALL. Or my FLASH!

    She added later:

    This is what is hanging my Firefox every time -- it can take well over 5 minutes for the right column with all the diaries to load.

    It opens a little faster in IE -- but not by much.

    Google Chrome seems to open it right away.

    I've been a multiple-time-day DK reader for several years and this just started recently.
    I uninstalled and reinstall Firefox, which I prefer as my default browser.

    It is a shame. I can't be the only person with this issue. I have Norton, but allow cookies for DK and don't have adbloc.

    I'd love to be able to read the diaries in my normal manner. Seriously. Very aggravating.
