Default Wow what a journey!

Have been trying to log on to OB for weeks with no success.

Had forgotten both my email and password. Finally my email was found after heaps of dramas. A process I do not want to go through again in a hurry.

Nothing to do with the forum except that with no email or password you do not seem to get through to anyone on OB.

So that this does not happen again I will be signing in and out of the forum as a rule. This will keep my email and password fresh in my mature mind.

Just touching base to let Admin and Mods that I am on board again. Thank you kg5.

Why not stay logged in? Since this site is unsecured, I use a password that's used for nothing else and keep it in a secured site. Glad you're back.

When I log into the OB, I get a message that asks me if I want to save my password. I always click "No" even though I'm on a private computer. It's just my habit. For me, no big deal to type my password. But as far as staying logged in, I don't have that option. Or, if it's there, I haven't found it. So if I leave OB, even though I have not logged out, if I visit again more than a few minutes later, the board has logged me out and I have to log in again. (This is unlike three other internet discussion forums I belong to, where you stay logged in until you log yourself out.)

It sounds like this is not the way it works for everyone. Maybe it has to do with what kind of device we are using when we visit the board. I'm on an old-fashioned desktop computer.

Anyway, kg5, yes, it sounds like a fine solution to simply visit the board more often!

Write your login information on a plant tag and put it in an orchid pot. Use pencil.

Sometimes I get a bit worried about my memory but it is just information overload I believe.

Today I could remember my password this morning but this evening I had to reset my pass word again. My password is now in a plant pot.

To my defense one of my computer died today. Needed to list 175 items but that did not happen and it is bad for business. Have 2 eBay stores and scanned images are everything when it comes to listing. Out of around 900 7 day listings there is only 3 stock images all the sold items have to be scanned fresh because the items are always different.

All the new flatbed scanners to my great displeasure come with a frame right around the scanning window so a stock card will not slip off the window as it catches on the frame so I found an older window 7 compatible scanner same one as I got in 2008 and it is brand new at a great price too I might add with no frame on the offside to the scanning window. It just slides off the scanning window with no worries. But my 2nd computer is windows 10 and the scanner program will not work with windows 10. Found a program called VueScan it will patch in any scanner to any older computer like XP & Vista etc and also the other way as for windows 10. Once you buy the program it can be used by any computer in house and any incoming future computer as well.

Trying to set this system up today really did my head in. Trying to do stuff I really have no idea about. Have no one to ask for help etc But it is now on my windows 10 but still needs some tweaking to get it up to oil. Just to tired to do it today. Hopefully tomorrow.......

Two desktop computers developed issues over here. Not sure if it is coincidence, or due to humidity and/or power issue due to recent black-out in NQ --- due to the 11+ day out of the ordinary monsoon and flooding activity. Currently using my laptop until I get new motherboards for my desktop computers.

Good to hear from you SouthPark.

Weather wise you have really coped the monsoonal rain this summer. The humidity you guys get with this sort of weather is unbearable. We get a taste of full on humidity but it comes and it goes.

Another lap top has fried on me. And it was a day that we could say was the worst humidity for this summer for us. We woke that day at 3.30am stinking hot which is normally our coolest time of the day. My plants are OK was really worried about them.

It is 9am here now and the sweat is pouring out of me. Early this morning it was cool enough for my Tillandsia's to be happy.

We live about a 1km or a mile from the internet tower with nothing in the way of it. So we are very blessed with an analogue and digital hook up for us here. Most people on our island have very poor or zero internet connection.

But even with this type of internet hook up the humidity I now believe is making complex program down loads go strange and very difficult to work with and the computers are doing strange things.

All the best to you up there. The cooler months are coming. kg5

Great to hear from you too Kg5!

Sorry to hear that your laptop got fried!!! Hopefully the data on your hard drive(s) is all good!

Nice to hear that your orchids are ok too. Mine are ok ..... but geez, the early morning sun energy has been intense up here for the last couple of days. I got home to find some scorched leaves. Absolutely due to sunburn. This first started happening yesterday. And did it again today. So I've now shifted a few catts out of the direct path of the early morning sun. Other ones handled it with no problems ..... unscathed. But decided to just get them out of the way too ----- just to be on the safe side. No significant damage done anyway. All under control.

Sounds like a very nice place you're living in .... an island!!! Having line-of-sight to the comms tower is a huge advantage for the wireless side of things.

During the recent day-and-half power outage, I had mobile phone comms only, as the power outage stopped us from powering the computer and modem for the NBN. Back in the 'copper' days, we at least still had land-line telephone!!! It's as if we took a step backwards heheheh.
