  1. I rolled over my name and saw some info about me. When I rolled over your name it said viewing forums index. Glad to know we can keep track of where you are hiding~Peter
    oops. I didn't realize this would be public. edit No it's not. When I logged out the message disappeared from "activity." 

  2. Oh oh. I was typing and suddenly I was back with MSN Hotmail.

      Peter,

      That sounds like a virus or something hijacking your computer.

      It might not be, but it's worth looking into.

  3. I did receive notification that I had contributed yesterday, but you usually also send a thank you but this time I received nothing from you. Did you get the contribution?

      Peter,

      As a matter of fact, I did. I was going to send you a thank you this afternoon. Did the return email come from OL or Paypal? If it came from Paypal, I have no way of controlling that, which is why I always send thanks in person. (Besides, it's cooler that way. :) )

      So thank you here. but I am going to thank you there, too, just because.

      :)

      I received your email about the donation in my inbox. But Michael I have received no new emails from OL since Wed. or Thurs. Yet when I go to OL, log on and browse unread content there are messages that should have been sent to my inbox. Please fix this. I will be on screen for a while so please respond.

      Peter  

  4. When I want to follow a topic I click “A notification when new content is posted.” That is not happening today. I am getting nothing from OL.

    And I never received your private email to me. I went to OL and logged on and then it said I had a notification from you and did I want to read it. But usually it would have gone to my inbox. I am getting other email from other sites including junk email so it is not something on my end that has changed.

      OK. For instance I just checked my email and I have no problems. Yet I have received no new email from OL other than one from you. AND I did not receive your most recent message in my inbox. I am reading it onsite. There were a bunch of messages on the Aesthetics thread and I got none of them.

      I should have gotten dozens of emails but none arrived to my inbox as of 1:47 on Sunday afternoon. I did receive your thank you saying I rock!

      Peter,

      According to the internal controls on the OL backend, everything is in order. You should be getting emails.

      Did you check your spam folder? Do you know what a spam folder is? How do you receive your emails, directly online at Hotmail or downloaded to your computer through Outlook or Thunderbird or some email client like that?

      (btw - You do rock. :) )

  5. Nor can I log out from the thread "Donald Trump."

      Peter,

      I don't understand this. 

      Can you describe it so I can visualize what you are doing clearer? If it's a bug and not just a problem of clearing cookies or something, I'll submit a support ticket.

      Here's one idea to try. Sometimes if you start to post a comment, but decide not to, the editor remembers the content you already typed (or copy/pasted into it). See if your editor has old content in it when you go to the Trump thread. And if you can't delete it for some reason, switch to Source view (the Source button is on the upper left of the editor) and delete the code. I'm not saying that is your problem, but it's worth a try.

      Michael

  6. If I come to OL from a saved "Donald Trump" message from my inbox I cannot log in. But other topics used as a gateway, allow me to log in.

  7. I can't seem to answer a letter on the APS thread.

      Peter,

      It looks like you have solved this issue.

      Michael

  8. I just went to OL, saw a message that I had and message. I clicked on it and malware locked up my computer telling me to call this number immediately. I went to my computers task manager and was able to get out.

      Peter,

      This is not from the OL end. I have some beefs with IPB, but security is not one of them. Nowadays, there are retargeting cookies on your computer and all kinds of things from normal browsing. Each new feature represents a new vulnerability. So what happened to you can happen from any site.

      NEVER click on a link on a page like you did. But I do what you did when a page like that appears. I've even seen this kind of nagging attack visiting an Amazon site.

      Welcome to modern computing.

      Michael

       

  9. After posting a message it won't let me sign out. I will try again or just x out.

    Peter

  10. I am having a problem logging in but when I went to your profile I was able to do it.

    Peter

  11. I was trying to block Greg. I'm just getting tired of his repetitiveness. How do you block someone?

      Peter ... follow this link: http://www.objectivistliving.com/forums/index.php?/ignore/ , or click on your name/image in the top right corner of your screen, and select 'ignored users,' and then do your business.

      Correct. Thank you, William.

  12. When I tried to sign in after going to a topic the screen filled with an anti Trump ad about eminent domain.

  13. Thomas? I imagined you as a George.

  14. Sorry Max. What I meant is there a general forum at this site, where the messages posted can be sent to my email at solarwind47@hotmail.com? That would be more convenient for me. I am having a hard time navigating this site.

    If you answer this question could it be sent directly to my email?

    Thanks,

    Peter

  15. Oh. email me at solarwind47@hotmail.com

    Thanks, Peter

  16. Thanks for the welcome. Can messages be sent to my email at hotmail? Thanks for your help. I still have trouble with computers.

    Semper cogitans fidele, Peter
