Something in the software here (could it be Ænigma's eviller brother?) is resetting some of the forums so that all the more recent posts announce [NEW] even though I've already read them, and from this same computer. This happening to anybody else?

Mac jokes totally unaccepted

Dear AS: Same thing happened to me about a week ago, but only for a short time.
Haven't seen it yet today. But there was quite a long hiatus when I got error message
wordsmith server not reponding.

This has been happening to me everyday, AnnaS. And, it is very annoying. I thought this was a new format.

Yes, for a while this afternoon I kept getting a server down message for wordsmith.

A different kind of Gremlin. I just got a PM, replied. Main Index won't cancel notice of PM
waiting for me, though I have opened it a half dozen times. The software needs a lumbar puncture.

In reply to:

all the more recent
posts announce [NEW]


Anna, this is happening to me, too - just today, that I've noticed. Have you discovered anything? is it still happening to you?

It's rather annoying, rather.

I have been having that 'NEW' problem intermittantly for some months actually and have grown used to it. But now there *is a new one. I find that I can no longer open a link to a url from a post. I have to copy it into Word (or somewhere) first and only then will it work. Is anyone else experiencing this problem?

Is anyone else experiencing this problem? I'm not, Sweetie. FWIW, I try to always check to make sure that my links work before I post them (when I remember to include them, that is! ). The ones I posted earlier today worked for me. Possibly something changed at your end? Have you had work done on your computer lately (or has your company, if you're at work)? Possibly they did something.

The links you sent this morning, Jackie, on cheesecloth etc won't open for me unless I copy them and paste them into something else. Links I am getting from outside the company via e-mails are working fine however. So, I dunno.
