Mine is also the same Rich. I get the "bouncers" too, (every time the past few days). Once it timed out, and showed me a "521" error, where the day or 2 B4, it was a 522 code. Yesterday, after the bouncers, it wouldn't let me in. Tonite, it finally did, after bouncing for 5 seconds.
Thanks for being persistent. Everyone appreciates it more than you know. :)

I think he was joking.

e.g. IE is good enough to download Firefox or Chrome.

I just checked the page using Internet explorer on Win10 and didn't see any dialog box asking about any apps. Take a screen shot using print screen button on the keyboard and post it here.

Be aware Internet explorer still comes packaged on Win10 but it's completely different browser than Edge. They are both installed.

Let me know the OS version and the browser.

Is that just the "pop up" notification or also the one at top of the page? In other words would one have to go to their dashboard to see if the had a message?

This does affect the Private messages or pop up about new private messages(FYI that pop up can be turned off in the User control panel). If set to yes in the User Control panel the forum will send an email notification to email you used to subscribe when you get a new private message or some replies to a topic you have participated in. Those options will not be available because they are currently disabled.

There is also a link at the bottom of all topics you can use to subscribe or unsubscribe from the topic. If for example you did not post in topic but want an email notification about new replies you can subscribe to it. If you are getting email notifications and no longer want them for that topic you can unsubscribe. There is also links for this in the email itself.

It's also possible to do this for an entire forum, if your interest is hand fired coal stoves you can subscribe to that forum. You'll get notifications for anything posted there. If thatis your only interest you don't actually have to come to the site to find out what is new.

To reiterate these features are currently disabled so those options will not be available at the moment.

One thing to note about the notifications, you do not get notification for every reply. Just the first one, when you view the topic or reply to it that is reset and you'll get another notification with the next reply.

Hi Richard, I heard from a few forum members last week, but of course I'm about useless with computers and software etc.
But, then Michigan got hit by the ugly windstorm, and I lost power and cable/internet from noon Wednesday until late Saturday night.
I have to say, that since I have a genset that will run the whole farm, and run for the whole day, I was much more annoyed by the loss of access to the internet.. And, my 'smart-phone' was useless as well, as Sprint's internet access also went down. A friend has Verizon or maybe it's AT&T, but he was able to access the internet..

Along with the rest of the forum members who have thanked you, I also wish to thank you for your work keeping your forum 'home' up and running. For many of us, it is a home away from home..

I had to laugh, when I read the comments about the 'guy who didn't own a hammer'.. my God, that was from about 5 years ago ! I didn't realize that that guy and that incident had become infamous. :-)

Thanks again for your hard work.
I hope all is well with your family..

Greg, it sounds like you were "off the grid" for a while. It has been a while since that happened to me, but it is a good reminder at how quickly communications can go down.
