Meanwhile, back in Costa Rica ..

By IamDora
When I lived in Puerto Viejo de Sarapiquí, my cabina was under what they called 'the iguana tree'. I likely took dozens of photos a week of these huge lizards. Often enough a branch would break under the weight, one would crash down on the roof and there would be a screeching of claws on tin as it slid off. My most common complaint to landlord Alex was, "The roof is leaking again."

Is anyone else having problems with pages loading? Yesterday we had the remains of Hurricane Ida which gave me a great excuse to just stay home and get caught up on important things like reading and EPZ. But I spent more time wrestling with the site than enjoying it.

The iguanas are really prehistoric looking critters. The site seems okay today except for when I first came on. But yesterday was a struggle to open anything.

I haven't had any problems with the site lately Dora. Sometimes around 4:00pm here and midnight in U.K. it is quite slow. Maybe something to do with the hurricane Ida causing trouble.
An excellent iguana image.

Wonderful looking beastie, looks quite friendly Dora. Sounds like an interesting place you lived in then.

I have no idea what the problem is. I have just moved a whole mess of photos on to flash drives to free up space in case storage was a problem. It's okay for the moment but the problem has been on and off for two days.

Home right now is all work and no play; Costa Rica is all play and no work. It averages out.

A pretty boy or girl? Tried a mod.

Have you checked speed with the speedtest site?

I just cleared history and restarted the computer; ran a couple of programs and found nothing on the laptop. It's a Mac so usually clearing history and a restart takes care of most stuff. Usually do it every day but sometimes forget in the hubbub that is my life these days. I'll check that out if this doesn't work.

Impressive close-up of this fascinating reptile, I like banehawi's mod too, which adds some punch.

Both excellent shots but version 1 seem to bring out more detail and natural colors.
