Only works for me in IE and IE is loading sllllooooowww. Firefox with the WYSIWYG gives me a blank box that I can not type in.

Dayum if we do and Dayumd if we don't...oh well at least I can read posts.

Win98se, IE 6.0.? (wouldn't install the last update)

Tom...I was born in the South....Southern California! But I have been in NC for the last 30 years...more or less. and we lived in Florida and Arkansas so I reckon I come by it honestly And we have some friends that live near Bluff City, TN...we have been looking at some property up that way. FWIW my wife was born and bred in Harnett/Lee county NC. She is like Delta Burke...without the ego.

Well I couldn't wait to see if my mac at home would work with the smilies and all since they were working at work on IE. Unfortunately all the formatting buttons do not work on my mac. Bummer. I'd insert a sad smilie if I could.

Using Safari 1.2.4 on OS X 10.3.8

I Give Up !!

Since my last entry on this thread I have tried 3 more times to start a new thread and each time I have been denied. Frankly, I'm tired of trying (I have typed it up so many times, I practically have the message memorized).
Too bad, too, as possibly someone may have been interested in the 15 passenger, Classic AS hearse that I spotted for sale. If you hear of anyone interested, PM me & I'll provide the owner's name and phone number.

....had to try this, thanks for the tip...it works

One of the tricks I have done during this period is to copy my message to the browser clipboard prior to submitting it. That way if it dies upon submission, I can recreate the thread easily without having to retype the message. It beats retyping the entire message over. Just highlight your text right click your mouse and choose the copy selection.

Thumbs up Alternative smilies for Mac users?

With my Win98SE and IE6.0 browser, I can attach smilies by right clicking on one that appears in the bottom section of the reply window then copy and paste it to the message. Will something similar work on a Mac


With no progress reports coming from Andy, we seem to be left to our own devices.

I do basically the same thing with either Word or Works. Using either of these provides the added advantage spell check. This is an especially good thing for me since I cain't spelll in the fusrt plase!

Technologically challenged as I am, I don't understand what you are talking about....maybe some, but, why isn't the forum working like it once did?

I know we pay nothing for this service; it was "free" at one time though. What has changed?

It was for sale at one time, I believe. Was it sold? What kind of an investment is this?

Apparently some of you have been able to "fix" the problem(s) and post. I get the impression that the forum is becoming "exclusive"; that is for those that are technologically able to access whatever and work with what is available.

Is there a chance it will ever be "fixed" ?

Kistler,
Apparently we may have three issues at hand. One a potential server problem (slow downs). We may also have software problems (lost posts, duplicate post message). We may also have some feature issues like use of Icons, Use of drop downs for formatting. In this case while this last item is software driven it seems to have a tie to user options which are or are not turned on, and can be fixed by the individual accessing the UserCP drop down at the upper left of this window.

Bottom line, server hardware changed and software was "upgraded". What makes this difficult is that you have multiple issues occuring and because multiple things were changed, its difficult to figure out which event was the trigger to a particular problem.

I deal with communication systems in my line of work and understand that sometimes you only make one change at a time and then stand back to see how it shakes out. Since non of us were privey to the processes Andy went through on his upgrades, we can't tell you exactly if its a case of too many things changing at one time or if we are dealing with something else.

I understand your frustration since I can agree with you that those of us who have a technical background have been able to work around some of the problems which have shown up. A lot of us don't get involved other than typing and pushing the buttons, and thank goodness most of the time it works and we don't care why. And those of you in the last group are probably having the most problems in dealing with this. Sorry I wish we could be of better assistance but we are pretty much in the same boat with you.

Jack
