Description Habj 2005-06-26 11:32:20 UTC
Occasionally, the history of a Wikipedia article won't load for me. It takes minutes, literally, 
or I don't get there at all. When this happens, repeated tries of loading the history doesn't 
help. The last article that gave me this problem was, yesterday 
and today.

A workaround that seems to work when the history is stuck like this, is editing the article in 
question and then try to access the history - it seems history is more easily accessible after 
that, I am not 100% sure though if I am fooling myself here or not. 

If it is of any importance in context, I use IE 5.0 ("change to Mozilla/FoxFire/Sfinx/Soap 
Opera", I know)
