    Where has everybody gone?

    I am surprised to see that there are so few folks posting on here these days. I have been a member for many years, and I recall when topics used to come thick and fast. Nowadays, it's more like Aberdeen on a flag selling day. Anyone like to tell me what has happened?

    Where has everybody gone?

    Thanks for the input. You know, I think you are correct. The reason that I don't come on here as often as I did in the past, is probably because today I run a PC with SSDs, loads of memory and mainly trouble-free. Also, as Gigsy says, people are more computer-savvy, these days. I know I am. I'm not brilliant, by any means, but can cope with things which, a few years back, would have had me stumped. All very sad. That's progress, I suppose. Funny, I can recall my first post on here, back in January, 2003. I can't recall the exact content, but I do remember Volt (don't know if he's still around) asking me if I was a cop! My reply was, no, my feet weren't big enough. Anyway, back to bed. It's 2.15 am here. Thanks again for the replies. d.
  3. Thanks for that. I'll give it a whirl.
  4. I've just updated the index page on one of my sites, and tried uploading it via Filezilla. It goes through the motions OK, but doesn't replace the original page. All I did was to insert a small block of text 'Last updated........' and now I have this problem. I can see both the old and the new pages on the remote site, side by side. I am using Komposer and Filezilla. Any ideas? Thanks in advance. donut

    Easiest Way To Make A Decent Web Site

    Changing Webhost

    My contract with my current host is due for renewal in a few days time, but for financial reasons I wish to transfer to a company with which I already have two sites registered. Do I have to wait until my present site goes down, or can I have it running on two servers for a few days? My current host has told me that no notice is required for cancellation, I merely do not renew the contract. Thanks in advance d0nut

    Changing Webhost

    All done and dusted, Bruce. Almost, anyway. Can't locate the details for changing the primary and secondary name servers. Nothing shows up in the control panel, and the help desk phone is unavailable until morning.

    Changing Webhost

    Thanks, Bruce. I'll start on that today. Season's greetings to you and yours! d0nut
  9. I've been using Statcounter for a few months, now, without problems but the program has now developed a blocking cookie problem which seems to be inherent. I've been on the Statcounter forum, but to no avail. Does anyone know of a similar program (not Google analytic, please) which is available free? Thanks. d0nut
  10. I have attempted to run my old version of TSP (US Gold) on my PC, but the board does not show up. All I get is the green background. It runs OK with Win. 98. In an attempt to overcome the problem, I purchased Scrabble 2005 but it turned out to be a load of rubbish. All bells and whistles, and very little Scrabble. Is there any adjustment that I can carry out on my PC to make my old programme run? Thanks in advance. d0nut PS Does anyone know if there is a decent updated edition of Scrabble available? I can't locate one.
  11. A couple of years ago, we lost our 18 year old grandson to meningitis. I put together a memorial site using a Streamline.net template and their site wizard. As there were limitations on the template without upgrading, I built a new site which is currently piggy-backed on my own website http://www.artus-fh.co.uk/Daniel's%20M.../index.htm.html What I would like to know is, how do I replace the old site, www.danielsibley.co.uk with the new one? Any help appreciated. d0nut

    Want to replace my website.

    Sorry about the delay in replying, but I am not receiving email notification of replies. I'll check your suggestions out, later Thanks for the input. d0nut
  13. Never did hear from them again. However, I have now sorted the problem with Statcounter. Turned out to be pilot error. Thanks to all for your help. d0nut
  14. Well, subscribed to Woopra (phone number optional) but the confirmation code was invalid. I have asked for a new code but, 30 minutes later, I am still waiting for the email.
  15. Thanks for the prompt reply. Much appreciated. The problem I have with Google is that they seem to want far too much personal information. For instance, why would they want my telephone number? I am reluctant to divulge this sort of personal stuff where it does not seem necessary. d0nut

    What is MSNBot-Media?

    I have just been checking the visitor statistics for my website, and came across this http://www.artus-fh.co.uk/source/Pics.html Is this sinister? Thanks. d0nut

    Colour your folders.

    Don't know if this has already been put up on here, but I found a very useful tool for coloring folders at http://www.snapfiles.com/get/rainbowfolders.html I found it particularly useful for identifying those folders which I might want to back up in the event of a re-format ( I've colored them all red ) and I also keep all my desk-top short-cut icons in a green folder. Saves hunting around. Oh, and it's free.

    XP Boot-up mystery.

    Because of problems with my Windows XP desktop I have just reinstalled. However, when I boot, I get a choice of systems, Windows XP Professional or....................er..........Windows XP Professional. I have to hit 'enter' to carry on. Can anyone tell me how I can rectify this, please? Also, after reinstalling, I downloaded Thunderbird mail client and configured it, accounts and everything. I switched off and went back to it an hour or two later. When I re-booted, all the account information had disappeared and I had to go through the whole process again. Any help appreciated. Thanks.

    XP Boot-up mystery.

    Ho, hum. Sorry about the faulty link. Anyway, it seems that when I reinstalled XP it did not do a reformat as I thought. so I now have two copies of Windows. I shall have to delete one. We just had a 80 mph gale here which caused a power surge, resulting in my desktop giving up the ghost. While I was checking inside the case, I noticed that many of the electrolytics on the mother-board were swollen and leaking. This could well be the cause of my initial problems which forced me to reinstall. A new mobo is now on the cards. Are they easy to configure? Never done one. I will probably get one fitted by an expert, anyway. Thanks for all the input. d0nut

    XP Boot-up mystery.

    Thanks again. As far as I know, I have only installed once. This is a screengrab of my boot.ini display. http://www.artus-fh.co.uk/source/Pics.html

    XP Boot-up mystery.

    Thanks. The question is, which one will I delete? I tried making one (the one which seems to have 2 partitions) the default drive, but I was requested to go back and reverse this mocve. Bit out of my depth here, methinks Brandon. No, I only ran set-up once.

    Web storage

    Is there any way that I can store files from my PC using my website as a back-up facility without it being accessible by site visitors? Just a thought.
