    When I log on I'm told I have, 4 or 8 or 10 games waiting etc. even though I may have zero games waiting. When I press "My Games" I then get the true count. This only started recently. How do I get rid of this problem?..Thanks

    Someone will probably tell you how to clear your cache, if you know how, give it a try.

    My games waiting list bounces among several past and current values depending on how many times I click refresh. See also threads "refresh?" and "default to previous position" in this forum. Still a mystery. The usual advice is refresh, clear cache, etc, but there has to be something better than having to refresh every single game??

    No problems on my side, maybe it's because I'm using a far superior Mac...

    I have to refresh my game waiting list AND refresh each game individually before I get the correct position. I'm going to lose a piece one of these days because of this. I also have to refresh each thread of the forums.

    I don't think this is anything that this site is doing. I've got no trouble.

    Do you access the internet through a proxy server of any sort?
    If you are using a proxy sever it could be doing the caching.

    Note: Depending on your ISP you could have transparent proxy servers - there's not much that can be done about that - the ISP's put them in place so that the amount of bandwidth they consume is limited.

    Have you tried making sure that your browser always requests up-to-date pages?
    I.E : tools->internet options->general tab->settings for temp. internet files. Make sure the "every visit" option is selected.
    Firefox: tools->options->advanced -> network tab. Set the cache size to zero.

    A zero size cache in Firefox does not prevent cacheing altogether. To do that go to about:config type browser.cache in the filter field and set the disk.cache and memory.cache values to false. This will probably slow everything down a bit as everything now has to be fetched from the server every time.
