Now sure what's causing this. Missing background images possibly?
Everything in the background has gone gray.
Aaaaand, as soon as I got done posting, it all went back to normal so, nevermind.
I have seen this happening more often, and lasting a bit longer sometimes. Usually, the background redraw happens almost instantly, but it seems to have periods of slowness. Disconcerting, when it happens, especially after what seems like an eternity.
I'm seeing similar in the US,
PS - the redraw was almost instantaneous when I posted that. I could barely see the gray background.
I've seen the redraw issue as well. This time the page supposedly had fully loaded.
Now that behavior is new to me. Usually, by the second sip of wine, the redraw was good and correct.
>Usually, by the second sip of wine
Gee... and here I was, noticing that by the second GLASS of wine I didn't care much about screen delays!
