Long URLs - Slowing computer down?
I have been having problems on all the computers I have been seeing, in that they are all slowing down. I am wondering if it is the long URLs that are being sent by idiot programs. I forwarded a link from Yahoo Personals to my other computer (running win 98SE and Mozilla 1.4.1), and it screwed the "In Box" up, making it way wider than the screen. I then clicked on the link, and when I went to it, I bookmarked it. Then I opened the bookmarks, and was able to look at it. It had HUNDREDS of characters. I could not believe it!
Is this what might be slowing all the windows computers down? How does Linux deal with those stupid long URLs?
Is there anywhere that has a forum dealing with these kind of programming problems?
