Yes, I understand you, I happen to speak fluent babble. We've got this, and panhead's issues with attachments (this may have changed because the attachment interface has changed), and I am getting other "forum weirdness." Allow me to elaborate: Private messages (this has been happening since the weekend)--I get the little pop-up notice on a new message, go and read the message. Then I get another pop-up notification, I click it, but it's for the same message that I just got so I get an error message saying to contact the site admin. Weirdness. I am using Firefox on my Linux machine, haven't checked the site on my Windows machine, but I also use Firefox on that machine as well (Win XP). Panhead's using Internet Exploder. There are almost always compatibility issues with the different browsers, browsers in different operating systems, and the ever-so-mysterious 'stuff'. This is your problem, Mr. fui, the mysterious stuff. It makes you babble. Has everyone cleared their cache yet? (Don't ask me to remember how to do this on Windows when I'm working in Linux, mkay?) There also may be browser settings that I'm drawing a blank on... I have pop-ups blocked except for certain sites... and.. ok, I'm a lame duck. Which is alright, because ducks don't need to walk as much as swim.
