Agh. this is the tenth time I've written a post only to find when I submit it's lost as I've timed out or something. why does this happen? do you expect really fast writers or am I doing something wrong? I've tried pressing the back button but that's about as useful as a glass lampshade.

I think you'll have better success if you turn cookies on.

Senor UT:

I use Outlook as my contact manager. It lets me track the regular name rank and serial number stuff of people I communicate with, plus a free form field called Notes. Is there a similar function in the cellar? I'm starting to lose track of stuff about my friends here. How does everyone else do this? Offline in some other program? Swarms of post-its? Just rely on memory?

Thanks in advance.

what type of stuff are you trying to save BigV? except for a couple of crashes *knock on wood* everything in the cellar is here semi-permanently.

Is the search messed up? I tried to dig up my slide rules post from to Doodads thread, and failed. I know it's there somewhere... I admit I didn't go through all 30+ pages worth....

I do think there is something wrong with the search, and I am rebuilding the indexes... should take about an hour.

You're very kind but there's actually a third one with photos (how many can one person have??). This one,

Senor UT:

I have noticed a difference in the behavior of the cellar. I had developed the habit of creating a post, and finally posting with Alt-s. Then, sometimes I read the post and decided it needed an edit or three, and pressed the Back-a-Page function (mouse button or what ever...), made my edit and then re-saved the post again with the Alt-s. If I do the edit fast enough, I get put in the pokey by the "too many posts/unit time" trap. No problem.

But the new results are that I wind up with TWO posts, and often I only see the bottommost one, and leave it on the board. I don't mind looking like a retard (good thing), and I have changed my posting/editing/reposting regimen.

My question is this: What prompted the change? It seems to be timed close to the defacement. Are they related?

Oh, and by the way, could you please delete this and this, please? See, they mock me. I don't think I've left more double-taps uncleaned up, but these have aged out for my edit privleges.

Sir. Why do some links open in a new window, and others take the current window to a new address? I can provide examples, if you wish.

btw, I use FF 1.04 on XP.

Thanks in advance.
