puter problems and ???

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Beyond the Sidewalks : One Thread

I don't know whats going on with this puter but when I go to BTS, I go in thru "history", my typical path, and click on the password link. I get the password prompt, do the password, click and get here.

I know others have responded to the recent threads I've started but when I call the thread up all I see is the initial thread post and NONE of the responses.

We cleaned out cookies the other day cause the puter was getting really slow and since then things haven't been right. I can't get to the current stuff on CS, FSR or AVC either. I know the problem is on this end but what to do?

For a while we were disabling cookies but everytime we clicked the mouse that annoying pop-up would come up which was just as slow as enabling the cookies.

Any way, yup she really did ask that question which was promptly shunted to Gina, her mom. We visited today and all the girls were in the coop playing with the chickens. It seems the hens kinda like being lap chickens. And yeah, I do kinda miss them.

I'm gonna do it again next year when hopefully are set up a little better.

I'm gonna copy this before sending it so if it doesn't take maybe someone can clue me in to what I need to do to get back on track with the puter.

John, I haven't a clue what's wrong. All I can suggest is that I have a list of "Favorites", which I use to come to my usual sites. I never use the History feature -- just go to Favorites and click on the link there.
There IS a feature to clean up your History -- but I'm sure that would eliminate everything there, and you'd HAVE to use some other method to get here. To clear out History, click on TOOLS, then Internet Options. You can clear out history on that screen, also any Temporary Files (which can get quite large and slow down your computer too).
Links that I use to get here:

Lusenet http://hv.greenspun.com/bboard/index.tcl
BTS http://hv.greenspun.com/bboard/q-and-a.tcl?topic=Beyond%20the% 20Sidewalks
Countryside http://hv.greenspun.com/bboard/q-and-a.tcl? topic=Countryside
Can also get in via CS Mag site www.countrysidemag.com
then click on the forum egg

You'd probably want to try some of those pathways before clearing out your history and temporary files. I hope this helps you some. I am going to email this to you as well. Let me know if you want me to copy the responses to your previous threads and email that to you too.

Your computer is directing to your on board files of your most recent excursion, not actual current net activity. I have done this when off line and when trying to respond got a "bar, circle no entry icon and instructions to go online. Try coming in through CS, Lusenet other Forums. Then enter the password and once on site select it as a "favorite". That should set your link properly.
