Most of the time, the text on the SB3 display scrolls nice and smoothly, but intermittently it doesn't scroll for a moment, then skips and jumps for a moment. Why does this happen, and what can I do to fix it?

This does happen when the server is busy or the network connection is
disturbed (which can happen eg. with wireless lan vs. neighbour's
microwave oven). See the Health plugin (available from the server's help
section) for more possibilities analyzing the reasons.

This might be due to the same reasons I described in your other thread
about the jumpy scrolling.

I'll try moving the server software to a more powerful host and see if it helps. Thank you!
