Ron: I may be wrong... but I'm guessing you made updates Saturday??? It's never been fun accessing from home since we moved to the new server... I have to turn off all graphics to even access and type my name and password for every post. But right after the move, there was another bugaboo that really made my life miserable.... it stopped for a while about the time you stopped the pictures... and now it's back. I wasn't having trouble Saturday, but it was such a nuisance Sunday I only read two poems... on my day off when I had plenty of reading time!
Every time I try to access the forums, I get an error box with "DOMAIN SECURITY: A script launched from one page has attempted to access information from a page from another domain. Since this could be used to obtain private information, it is not allowed."
Now I know I work on a dinosaur at home and I don't want to stop progress for everyone else, but this is a pain in the royal rear! *G* I can... laboriously... access the forums from home. But since I get that error 7 times to access the list of forums, another 7 times for the first page of the open forum list, still another 7 times to actually READ a poem and a whopping 8 times to reply... that's more effort than I want to put into reading anyone's work but Toerag's! LOL.
Is there anything you can do to help short of undoing whatever update you did? *G* Or am I doomed to a life of silence... tough on this chatty ole biddy who freely admits her addiction to this site... or must I wear out my clicking finger clicking 21 times to read a single poem? HELP!

That's almost certainly a Security setting in your browser, suthern.

If you refresh our memory on what browser you use (Netscape, IE, or something else) and what version number, maybe someone using the same one can suggest where to turn it off?

And, uh, just how old is your computer?

Ron: I'm not at home anymore... but while there, I use AOL... and it's version 3.0... don't laugh. I've tried to have it upgraded and keep having problems... and I think my computer is female... so we don't ask her age... but I'm pretty sure her teeth are false. LOL.

Oh... and I never had this problem before all the new server and all the pictures... and I've had about 3 months free of the problems... the errors resumed sometime late Saturday... I accessed Saturday morning without problems... late Saturday night, I tried again and said ta hell with it!

suthern, let me know your address..I'll send you $10 towards a new computer! Or if I hear of someone who has one they want to give away, I'll ask them to send it to you! Can't have you going to all this trouble!

PDV: I think we're going to have to up the ante... *G* I don't think I even KNOW enough people to buy a computer at $10 apiece! LOL. But I do love your idea... thanks for the grins! *G*

AO Who????

Suthern the AOL frontend browser can be a pain if you run it on an older machine, the main problem is that AOL are forever upgrading it. Every time they do they splash links and messages prompting you to upgrade, great if you are running an all singing and dancing PC, though not so good on a "PC of advanced years".The AOL browser loads A LOT of stuff that you don't need to access the internet. If you can live without it you'll find life a little easier. It's possible to use the AOL dial-up connection and run another browser as the interface, Internet Explorer would be my choice it's easy to get hold of older versions and easy to load. You'll find it less trouble and easier to configure than the AOL browser, IE3 or 4 would be fine (if we're talking about an old gas powered PC I'd go with IE3   ) .


 Yes, I admit your general rule. That every poet is a fool:
But I myself may serve to show it. That every fool is not a poet.
