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).

Loads really fast on my Chrome (I use Firefox though).

I've never had a problem with Chrome loading dA.

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.

Are you using Firefox or do you have a Mac? If so I feel your pain. There always seems to be something going slow as molasses on a cold winter day on DA.

Some dialects of English do actually insert a space between a question mark and the last word, so don't worry. :B

I went to university in America for 5 years and have a pretty good handle on English. After 14 years you should be fluent. Unless you were an illegal alien?

You live in fucking Ireland, if your profile is correct. Pretty sure most people in Ireland speak English :roll:

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.

So yeah, your situation is not like hers...

Opera reminds me of chrome, just not as fast. It has a lot of experimental features, which may or may not work.

Chrome is better, but Opera isn't too bad.

If you want to use IE in other machine, I recommend you use a live cd for IE only. I know of a iso for that.

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.
