It's as if Bob and Lisa were both writing a report, and both need numbers from each other's reports in order to finish theirs. When they get to the point where they need the other's numbers, they stop and cannot continue until the other finishes. Since both are in this state, this never happens. And when they try to call each other to get the numbers, they both get a busy signal because each is calling the other.

So the server grinds to a halt while Bob and Lisa are twiddling their thumbs waiting for something that will never come.
Hahaha I love your explanation btw ^_^

AHA! Thanks Leo for the link directly to this thread.

There has got to be a better place to put an announcement of this magnitude so that its easier to locate, and is obviously still relevant. Like in big flashing letters on the first page of the forums. So even stupid people like me can notice it. Before we start asking dumb questions.
