Here I am on my desktop as my laptop is still recovering from my mistake to have a look at the super thread. It caused almost every appliaction to go into "not responding" and shut down.

So my feeling is that its time for the super thread to be archived

Nah, keep it active. Your machine probably would have crashed on its own. There is no logic reason why a very long string of html would crash your computer more than a halfway large software would have.

My computer is pretty powerful but the superthread really slowed my PC down big time, It's more the pictures which cause it rather than just text.

What is the point of this super thread. Just to see how many post there can be?

I am a visitor at the Car and Driver forum and the super thread there is now up to 221,904 posts.

Might as well close the one here now.

I'm really sorry your computer crashed (I really am), but let's keep the SuperThread active till we reach 2006 replies.

I bet somewhere in Sweden there are lights dimming as the A.net servers try to get a grip on the SuperThread.

I bet that has pages though. That way only a certain number of replies are shown at a time..

I agree that the thread should be locked. It serves no useful purpose except to waste bandwidth and lock up computers.

All they want to do is get it to 2006 replies. Firefox loads it in under 20 seconds, and it goes to prove that Firefox is much stabler than IE.

Peronally i couldn't be bothered spending my entire afternoon rebuilding my machine with a new browser just to open that thread.
What slowed that thread down is the pictures and some of the posts are 5 feet long. Don't know why some did that, it was just to get the amount of replies to 2006. All you have to do is say a few words per post.
Cheers.

Its a 10 minute install and can be used simultaneously with IE.

The superthread sucked up a large amount of bandwidth on our 100mbps connection at work and slowed the whole network to a crawl until I unplugged the computer after the thread crashed the entire thing, brand new top of the line computer too.

it really is pointless and I am rather disappointed that something like that was allowed to go this long, with the shape the servers are in here.

Same here, scared the hell out of me because I was at work at the time.
I went into task manager and killed the IE process which was at 99%.

It's to the original monster thread like Windows is to MacOS X, in staying with the metaphor - a stale and second-rate imitation...!

Not working for me either. It froze all the browser windows and I had to restart IE.

(And before someone jumps on me for using Internet Explorer, I don't have admin access on this sh*t; otherwise, I'd have installed Firefox ages ago.)



Don't expect to see me around that much (if at all) -- the contact link should still work, though.

Yeah Im on the same, (with a G5) and I have no problem, I don't know if the same can be said for the servers though.

The servers are Linux PCs as far as I know; They'll do fine if the memory limits aren't set too tight, but the thread will have to compete with a.net photos for bandwith...

oh stop yer winging, if it breaks your computer or you dont like it, DONT OPEN IT.

It doesnt use that much bandwidth, its just text at the end of the day.

2000 posts in one thread, or 20 posts in 100 threads, same difference.
