Last weeks internet DNS failure created a problem that I just addressed. It was a speed issue that had nothing to do with PMs which are working fine as far as I know.
RunRyder Cache, DNS or Cookie Problems:
If your browser is displaying incorrect or out of date data, do a Ctrl-F5 or a Ctrl-R refresh. Next you should delete your temporary internet files (cache) and off line content.
If you are having problems connecting to RunRyder try flushing your PC's DNS resolver cache.
To fix logout problems you need to search for and delete all RR cookies. Locate your cookie directory(s) and delete cookie files with names that contain "runryder" and or the IP text "220.127.116.11". After deleting the RR cookie files, reboot your computer.
