    Mike, you might be able to save quite a bit of time by not capitalizing every word in a sentence. No offense intended, just a thought. I haven't experienced your problem, btw. Things seem to go quite smoothly here.

    Mike check your privacy settings. They may be too high causing your problem.

    Sounds like something is timing out. Are you using dial-up inernet?

    Hope this helps.

    Take care, have fun, and do good!

    Regards,

    I am on dial up still. No problem here with time outs, but I am a fairly quick typist.

    Never had a timeout problem here due to SMF. I do know that if it was over 5000 character post problem that a warning box would pop up and you could go back and take care of that. I had this come up just a couple days ago in a PM about the 2008 gathering. So, that is most likely not your problem. Also, as mentioned above if you submit a reply and have lost your internet connection your text is lost.

    BTW, I can tell your mind is made up, but all caps is considered very rude in the world of internet forums. It is however a free country for a while still. Hope ya get it figured out.

    Do you suppose there's a reason that interoffice memo's, or ANY kind of mailing isn't sent with all caps? Dang, you're right and I just need to adjust, Mike.

    Here's the deal gang:

    I'm sure Jeff has seen this thread and is checking his settings. If there is a need to change something.. He will change it.

    Mike: As a general rule across the internet all cap typing is received as a form of exclaimation or yelling. Please refrain from using all caps when you post as a matter of general courtesy. No big deal to turn off the caps lock. We don't care if you don't capitalize the first word of a sentence.

    Everyone else: If you don't have anything constructive to help in the solution of Mike's timing out problem then DON'T post to this thread. No further digs will be tolerated.

    When I first got my computer I purchased Dragon Naturally Speaking, tried to use it but do to my pronunciations I had problems with it typing what I spoke. Fifty bucks down the drain. Well, lately they have supposedly upgraded their software to fix problems like mine. But, since my purchase and shelving of this software I have become quite the pecker. We're talking five years of pecking at least two hours a day. I no longer need neither the software, nor the hardware that comes with it.
