Re: Magic screen rant

Would I lie? :lol:
It could be that this is what you want.
So cheap you could build a wall between you and the TV and slowly demolish it as you use the bricks as missiles.

Re: Magic screen rant

I have often wanted to do that but with the TV and not the Laptop screen.
Better still is to throw something at the screen that will vent your spleen but not the screen. ;)
Now on Ebay you can find the very thing as there are some traders that sell foam bricks for that very purpose.

Re: How are you coping?

the other major renovation we have made to our economic lives in light of the tightening economic belt is "paying forward." We put aside money for a car payment each month, but still drive our old cars. That way, when the time comes for a new(er) car, the money will be there to pay cash. Excellent ...

Re: How are you coping?

Also, people like to complain about jobs being sent over seas. But, they own imported vehicles. Hmmmmm. how about instead of complaining about that, you go out and buy American made vehicles, But that would be importing. ;) Going out and spending to boost the economy is of course a sound idea but i...

How are you coping?

I notice that all the GD discussion is computer related and much of it phpbb linked so here is something different. Most of the western world is in a financial mire due mainly to the action of bankers looking for a profit at any cost and to hell with the future. The net result of this for most count...

Re: How easy on your site?

BTW, Hi Jim :) Hi Jelly. It turns out that my decision to leave the team was the right one as I had been feeling ill for quite some time. Last year I had a heart attack and ended up having to have stents fitted into the main artery to the heart. However I have missed all the camaraderie on here wit...

Re: How easy on your site?

I would click "About" and then click "Contact Us." I suggest that it is not an obvious place to look and that your suggestion that potential users be directed to it would work but (those that know me know there is always a but) I would remind you that this boards layout is non standard but one espe...

Re: How easy on your site?

Hi, Old man, ;) Nice to be remembered young man. ;) No one has actually said what they would do if they did not get an activation email when registering on this site . The point is that there is no default method of contacting the admin or team member should you not get the activation email. That i...

How easy on your site?

To register that is. Last week I attempted to register on a phpBB3 forum. I say attempted because for some reason the activation email did not arrive. It had not gone into any junk folder either on my machine or the mail server so what on earth to do? Quite simple really - just follow the instructio...

Re: What do you do to combat spam?

Type the number between seven and 9 in word forum ~Callum Yes that should do it but take care that you word it so that your potential user can answer it/follow the instruction. I was looking for the seventh and ninth letters which of course there are none in the word "forum". Then it dawned on me y...

Re: What AV software has your vote?

Thanks Jim. It seems I have been lucky so far. I run a full scan once a week. Is this often enough or should I do it more frequently? That should be ample - in fact I don't do it as often as that. It rather depends on the sort of sites that you visit as some are "more dangerous" than others. I use ...

Re: What AV software has your vote?

Best scenario is that you do see something amiss such as something failing to work or work incorrectly. Worst scenario is that you see nothing but in the background is some pernicious bit of code that is sending back personal info to the culprits machine. It may be logins and passwords that you have...

Re: What do you do to combat spam?

No I do not use a question Callum. I give them an instruction.
Example
In the space on the right type in the phrase "Botsnaffoff"
No bot has ever got through that in 7 years.

Re: Looking for tips to generate more posts

You have asked how to generate traffic without saying what your board is for. I presume it has a purpose? Many that I see do not have an obvious one. It helps if it is hobby related so that you can get the message out that you have the board running. What I did was to create a user called "Grumpy" w...
