my browser (Opera) doesn't deal with these very well at all so e-mail is the best way if you need to contact me on the side.



Opera's great for about 95% of everything and is rarely hacked. It's also extremely simple much like the old Netscape v4.72 was before AOL got a hold of that. Can't stand MSIE and Firefox has gotten into the habit of "pushing" all sorts of things I don't understand into itself without allowing you a choice.



A browser should be just that - plain, simple and only deal with add-ons you want on there.



Hit me with an e-mail or post it public as PMs don't work right, might be because I'm still running Vista on this laptop I've been using in interim until I put my upgraded desktop PC back in place.



May be busy tomorrow too, I've about got my new 22 TB server up and running that's part of my media system. Let me tell you, putting 12 ea 2 TB drives into RAID 5 on WinXP Pro 64 isn't all that easy.

I'm not familiar with Opera, but I still don't understand why you have difficulty. The PM function here is basically handled the same way as a regular post, just directed to the specific "folder" the two of you share when the post is sent. I can't see that it could be viewed any differently dependent on the browser. I'm not terribly techie, but the logic doesn't seem to follow. When I get a PM, it views exactly the same way as a regular post in a thread. Just up in the private profile section. I am using Firefox, and all the updates are a tad annoying, but I never pay too much attention to them. I like it better for most uses, but there are some web sites that just don't play well with it. I suppose that is true for just about any browser.

I just turned the capability off. It may be this Vista + Opera or who knows what but I don't like crap popping up on my screen that I have to attend to before I can do what I came to do in the first place.



I actually did have it working at one time until some WIndows update cae down, the problem seemed to have started after that. It got to where if I got a PM and answered it the forum kept poping up that I still had a waiting message and I had to shut down Opera then restart before it would quit doing it.



I prefer simplicity and still detest those websites that you absolutely MUST use MSIE on. Opera's a sleek little browser, faster than any other when a true comparison is done (not a cheating one) and it's so customizable it isn't funny. It's great "out of the box" but with some tweaks you can really get it to simplicity by definition yet still do most anything the rest will.

Gotcha, but it went wacko as usual.



I liked the internet a lot better when it was simple text with a few images and the like, nowadays just to look at one of our local news channel pages you've got to wait 2 minutes for all the videos to load "in case you want to watch them"



I've got 4 mbps at home, at work we've got around 8 mbps but come lunch time the internet slows to a crawl because everyone is watching streaming TV on thir desktops.



I've asked the MIS to block certain file extensions at the firewall and he agrees but he's too lazy to do anything about it.

When I did a complete blow down of the computer a couple years ago and had to go in and retrieve my pics before I did that.... I was AMAZED that in ubuntu, I searched for jpeg- and even the picture ADS came up, like the ones you see on the side of your screen when you're logged into facebook..... and it's all CRAP being stored!
