Due to the nature of the Internet, your web browser's connection to the Sploofus computers is passed through dozens of routers and switches that are beyond the control of you, your ISP, or Sploofus. This is true for any web site that you may connect to.

To be sure that your computer is not the culprit, ensure that you are using the most recent version of your web browser (i.e. Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Safari). Verify that your web browser has scripting/JavaScript fully enabled, and that it is accepting cookies from

For optimum performance and to properly enjoy all Sploofus features, the Firefox web browser is HIGHLY recommended. It is also to your advantage if your computer has at least 512MB of RAM, 800 MHz CPU, Windows XP or Mac OS X 10.3.5, and a broadband Internet connection.
