st.deviantart.net is DeviantART's static content load servers. It's used to speed up loads by not having to regenerate things all the time. The issues you're having are probably a result of your ISP having a bad connection, or a server problem on dA's end (though it seems to be limited to you, so it's probably your ISP).
If you're bogging down browsing, get something to block scripts. Don't know about chrome, but you can get one for firefox really easy. You'd be surprised how much faster it runs when it's not loading all this crap you don't really need.
Oh hush, they also speak Irish here. It just depends where you live and were raised old skool or new. The point was if you lived in a foreign country for 14 years it seems you would pick up the language.
Yes, you also speak Gaelic, but English has been the predominant language since the 19th century. Even if Gaelic is what is spoken at home, you still would be surrounded by English, especially within early childhood (Which is the best age for learning languages) as over 90% of your country speaks it.
Furthermore, English and Gaelic use the same alphabet (Though, I think Gaelic has accented letters? Either way, it's still Latin alphabet) which makes it even easier.
Nope, adopted. I just never got the hang of writing in english, I write everything in Chinese Traditional characters. then manually translate afterwards before posting, however some sites do english only
I moved from IE to Chrome a long time ago, it works best on my laptop. I can use IE on other machines, but personally I like Chrome because it gets what I want done..... I suppose that this comment should be in the praise forum.....
I already mentioned I do not use firefox because it killed my computer in the past, and quite personally I just do not like it, even though it is smaller now. but that is really just me, I will though look into Opera some more at a later date
it killed my old desktop when I tried to use it, at the time it was a resource hog and tried to lock me out of things and lagged like heck, the computer itself was old yes, but even then it ran at the time IE just fine.
Within the last hour, took its sweet time loading anything, barely managed to get to the helpdesk to submit a ticket. Somehow it is working like it should, no slowdowns, but how long that will last, I do not know
I'm sure it's possible to uninstall IE by deleting manually and tampering with regedit to keep the necessary elements. But I have no idea on how to do this safely, so I will not perform it. I might even intentionally fuck my windows VM in order to see if it works first.
