Sometimes my browser loads a rainbow-magnetized image in the banner. Refreshing usually clears it up and it's not often, but it does happen.

I've tried the college computers as well as my lappie, and it's the same.

I think he means it's like what happens when you put a magnet up to a CRT. When the monitor becomes polarized.

Such things are hard to remember in this age of LCDs, I know. laugh.gif

I think I've seen that happen once or twice. I don't know the exact cause of it, but I believe it is possibly caused by fragmentation on your hard disk. Because this "rainbow-magnetized" effect only happens upon returning to the site after some time from the last time you visit the site. Your Internet temporary files probably became more fragmented during the course between your last visit and this one.

When the browser asks the computer to serve up the cached images from the temporary files, it only pull up a fragment of it. The "rainbow-effect" is caused by corrupted data on the cached images. And then there is another explanation, it could simply be a gzip compression error on the server-side. But that's less likely.

Bottom line, if this happen again, try to defragment your hard disk.
