Okay, I'm getting really frustrated. With my computer setup, I can do a word round and just click randomly as fast I can, and the fastest time I can get is 42 seconds. So that's the absolute best I can do. I can deal with not being a contender in word rounds. But it's the showdowns that are getting me upset! I'll type the correct answer, click on enter, and then watch the timer continue its slow way down. Finally, AT LEAST 10 seconds later, it will stop and I'll get a response. The response is always "you lose, you took too long to answer the question." I'm paraphrasing of course.

With quizzes, it's the same thing. The time I'm assigned doesn't represent the actual time it took me to answer. (I'm slow, but not THAT slow!)

I switched from dial-up to satellite (no dsl available here), which is making Sploofus a very expensive habit. I've deleted old files, defragged constantly, added memory, all to no avail. You folks with fast times, how can I optimize my computer so that I have a chance? What specs do I need?

That sounds much too slow if you have a broadband connection. Do you have a family member or friend who can help you with you hardware and software configuration?

Since I downloaded these (2) things and run them about every day, it has helped my speed. They're both free. Just type each one in the search bar to find, since I can't remember the website.

Hope this helps. Let me know if it does.
