OK, Pap, I may have found your answer.
Working on a would be FAQ thread, maintained at this time, by a total of 1 person, I played a lot with efficient ways to access a given thread. That, you know how by now, but I will demonstrate anyway.
Then it was an easy step to go to a post.
I have a note with ready to fill blank addresses looking like that:
(I have to show it with a X instead of a h, so you can see it now)
When I find a thread I want to mark for future reference, as this was very astutely started by HEX (by the way, what happened to him?), I just enter the "threadid=" # like in the example:
and now for the post, you ask?
Run your mouth, I mean your mouse over the "Report... Moderator" and you see the post number appears in the Internet Explorer status bar, if this is what you are using.
So, you enter that # twice, like in:
Now, something interesting: sometime it works, somtime it doesn't.
The first time I did it, it went to the POST, the next time, it went to the top of the page in the thread !!! The next time, to the post.....
I know that often, when I click on "go to last post" little arrow, it will go to the beginning of the thread instead. So, there is a glitch somewhere else. I thought that with computers programs : either it worked or it did not. But, I am totaly "innocent" when it comes to how these forums work, so I cannot comment on that. Mike has been using Compuserve for nearly 20 years, and he is always commenting on how superior their software is, and he is not wasting so much time in line,.... and blablabla..... He tried to demonstrate: that was over my head.
I think I am getting better at this stuff. Never used this modern computers like you young guys. Mike is trying to have me use his Toshiba laptop and his PC or whatever these things are called. I need those to get on line, but for anything serious: sorry, not for me.
Now I have to go back and work on my own computer. I have to rework my store inventory, on the program I started to write in the early 80's, and I run on my faithful Commodore 128. I can even run it for several minutes blind, when my monitor goes on the blink (just whack it, the picture will come back). Can you do that on your PCs?
, I mean go on entering data without a monitor?
