My problem with getting onto the mudcat seems not to be in the threads, but in simply getting to even the main page. I sometimes get only the banner, (y'know, the thing that says mudcat cafe,) and sometimes not even that, but only the contacting mudcat.org message on the bottom of the screen. After half an hour or more of waiting, I usually become too impatient and decide to end contact. This seems to have ended today, as I was able to log on twice, and it is only now slow in loading threads. This in the peak hour of 8PM EST. I have faith it will work out.
