    Okay, WTF is wrong now? Every time I go to YouTube I just get a blank black player screen. Nothing. Nada. Zip.

    I DLed the latest version of Flash just in case, and still nothing.

    Yeah, thanks, that's nice and all, but I thought I was obviously asking why it wouldn't work for someone's individual PC. Does anyone know of, for example, recent Windows updates or YouTube site updates that would fuck it up? has anyone heard of this problem happening to anyone else, and how did they fix it? Ya know, some useful info?

    Okay I got it - I had to uninstall and reinstall Flash. God only knows why.

    I've been having trouble with all kinds of sites - especially YouTube and other Google sites - with Opera, Firefox, and IE. Keep getting "An error occurred; try again later" or "could not locate remote server".

    Wordforge is just about the only place working as normal. So the Internet connection isn't down. Sites work as normal from my phone, so the sites aren't down.

    But then for a few minutes here and there, all sites are working as normal.

    It's driving me nuts. Maybe this is my computer's way of telling me to go find a book or the outdoors.
