I have a problem.. for some reason any new replies to my posts or others are not showing up on my computer.. I see that there are more posts, but when I open the post it only shows the last that I looked at. Now before you tell me something I already know or think that I am stupid.. (which most of you probably already think anyway) I do hit the refresh button.. but nothing happens.. its still the same.. even logged off of AOL and back on.. and still the same. Any suggestions???

LOL - It's not you, Lucie - It's AOL - They refresh you at THEIR leisure.... ... Can you outsmart them and take a back door in - through Netscape?

Lucie: You're not alone... I hate posting from home because there I have AOL and no way around their "we'll refresh when we darn well feel like it" routine... and inevitably, that's when my replies show up duplicated...

Hmmmmm.... wonder if AOL has a financial interest in valium prescriptions? *G*

Actually even on AOL you can set your own cache settings. Not really an AOL issue as much as just a preference setting.

The following is for AOL 4.0 (don't remember in's and out's of 3.0):

To find the area you need to change go MyAOL >> Preferences >> WWW >> on the first tab, you want temporary internet files area, click settings there. Presto... tell your browser how often to check for new version of a web page.

You can do this in AOL 3.0, just find the preferences area and all is the same.

Hope that helps.
