... but not too hard!      

Actually, this is a test. One that I need your help with. Our email notification feature seems to be working sporadically (or not working sporadically, as the case may be), and I'm having a devil of a time discovering why. It seems that no matter what I try to do it works for me without fail. And unless I can see it broken, I'll never determine the cause.

Thus, I am marking this post to email me each time someone replies. I would appreciate a few dozen replies or so, in the hopes that one of them will break the chain - then maybe I can figure out what's causing it.

Thanks for the help!



Editing this, at Jim's suggestion, to see if it has any impact...

Nope. It didn't turn off the email notify just by editing. Following up on another suggestion of Jim's, I deleted my cookies and came back in. My name and password were not displayed, just as happened to Jim - but the email notification is still checked.

See what I mean, guys - this simply refuses to break for me!

What pressure! At least these messages should have some depth, some meaning. Imagine, you will have to come over here and read these pithy replies. Perhaps you should have asked for a joke or something!

I've noticed the problem too Ron.....sometimes I'll get 20 responses and 2 or 3 e-mail replies...other time someone will reply and I'll get a notification even days later......odd odd thing, personally I think that you're using our main frame computer as help in the SETE program during the down time and that the aliens are trying to communicte through us and that's why the signals get crossed (ROFL...well, it's as good of an excuse as any isn't it?)

There you are... I'm sitting here with googols of questions and very few answers - can't get online to ask 'em - And you're hanging around in the local cafe and back alleys getting into mischief... I see how it is..

I like the surprise factor of seeing the number of replies ( or lack of ) next to my rambles, so I don't use the e-mail feature.

I don't mind replying so you can fix it though.  

 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.

I agree with Craig... Of course, my email comes and goes to and from so many directions, I'd probably never get it anyway..

the volume on the radio?
Why is it lemon juice is made with artificial flavor, but dishwashing
liquid is made with real lemons?
Are part-time band leaders semi-conductors?

Day light savings time - why are they saving it and where do they keep
it?
Did Noah keep his bees in archives?
Do jellyfish get gas from eating jellybeans?
Do pilots take crash-courses?
Do Roman paramedics rever to IV's as "4's"?
Do stars clean themselves with meteor showers?
Do you think that when they asked George Washington for ID he just
whipped out a quarter?
Have you ever imagined a world with no hypothetical situations?
Have you ever seen a toad on a toadstool?
How can there be self-help "groups"?
How do you get off a nonstop flight?
How do you write zero in roman numerals?
How many weeks are there in a light year?
If a candle factory burns down, does everyone just stand around and sing
"Happy Birthday"?
If a jogger runs at the speed of sound, can he still hear his walkman?
If athletes get athletes foot, do astronauts get mistletoe?
If Barbie's so popular, why do you have to buy all her friends?
If blind people wear dark glasses, why dont deaf people wear earmuffs?

If space is a vacuum, who changes the bags?
If swimming is good for your shape, then how do you explain whales?
If tin whistles are made out of tin, what do they make fog horns out of?
If white wine goes with fish, do white grapes go with sushi?
If you cant drink and drive, why do bars have parking lots?
If you job backwards, do you gain weight?
Why do signs that say "Slow Children" have a picture of a running child?
Why do they call it chili if its hot?
Why do we sing "Take me out the the ball game" when we are already
there?
Why is it the time of day with the slowest traffic called rush hour?

Okay here's a message. . . but nothing too long. . . because you said that you only wanted a short message and after the message that is before this message, I don't think that anyone could really stand to read a long message. . . but since I really don't know what to say, I'll just stop right now and I hope that this takes care of it. . .

Ron:

I noticed that sometimes when I go in and edit my work the little "email notification" box becomes unchecked.  I couldn't be that simple though, could it?

I use it...cause I am gone for 3 or 4 days at a time and its nice to know if someone replies or not...but it is very erratic...sometime I don't get them at all, other times I get them all delayed the next day...other times its one here and not one there...maybe its the fault of the respective servers more than its the fault of PIP...

For the record, delayed notifications (as opposed to no notification) are invariably the fault of a mail server somewhere. It could be our mail server (especially during the Valentine's rush, when Ceres was so badly stressed), but in most cases I've seen the fault lies with one of the "free" email servers.

I invariably get a dozen or more notices from Ceres every day, warning me of "delays." Ceres tries to connect with the appropriate mail server at her first opportunity, and I think it's fairly immediate. If she can't get through she sends me a message, then tries again every four hours. After five days, she gives up entirely (and I get a few of those, too).

The biggest offenders seem to be hotmail.com and yahoo.com, but I've seen warnings and bounces from just about everyone (even the actual ISP's). EMail, it seems, isn't quite as "guaranteed" as the US postal service, yet.

I think you should take my Computer Repair and Anger Management Seminar at the Abrahm Simons School of Stupid Ideas.  Through rigorous training and long sessions spent communicating with your computer via high pitched screams you'll achieve a Zen-like oneness with your computer and randomly forget things.  You'll also fall over and hurt yourself constantly, but your computer will seem to work!  Please send the $1,000,000 enrollment fee to me, and I'll book your first class!

In flames I shall not be consumed, but reborn. --

Ron: Seeing as I know I will probably have your complete and undivided attention for the next 2 mins..*g*....can we please have a laughter or 'up' board...

I can't possibly be the only person going through a really bad time but one where I also want to forget that and be my usual fun loving self, you know, quick-witted, humorous, laughing in the face of adversity...It is so great to laugh and joke and I find the Open forums are so depressing of late and yes, I know I contribute but I need a place to be "me" not just a sad me but the happy me, the smiley one, the mischievous one, the little devil and there doesn't seem a place for me to go...any suggestion, I'll happily listen to any recommendations that you offer or indeed anyone else...I am just so fed up of being 'miserable'...I love life and I need laughter as much as I need to express any other thoughts I have....

I bet mail doesn't work on this one..*g*
