  1. The Forum Has Been Upgraded

    I really don't want to complain, but... I used to be able to reply to multiple portions of a quote by copy/pasting it two or more times, and then deleting the unwanted parts of each so that I could "thread" a conversation. Same with multiquote. Very kludgy, but it at least worked. Now copy/pastes seem to work even less correctly than they used to, and it takes a very long time to make what should otherwise be a 30-second reply. Plus, it seems like the Preview button disappeared; that was very helpful to be able to see how a post would really look before it was posted, especially given the above bug/kludginess. Also, completely unrelated, but: could we please fix the "Location" under each avatar? It's just a tad jarring to always see that. Sorry to whine. Thanks for your help and interest!
  2. Tech Nerds Wanted for 1- to 5-day gigs

    This is still an active pursuit. Coming up in the next few weeks are Washington and Massachusetts. Please let me know if you are interested, anywhere in the US. Thank you.
  3. I hate to say this, but my bet is on each service doing its own filtering. I actually have the same issue with one of my Gmail accounts that forwards email to another, where I have to check two Spam folders.
  4. In Firefox, you can right-click on your page, then Inspect Element > Network, and see exactly what is being requested. Other browsers may have a similar feature.
  5. Writing without the Internet. Or human contact. Or fresh air.

    Good ideas, Sal. Thank you.
  6. Anyone else missing email notifications?

    Nothing wrong with upgrading software, but email delivery issues typically occur upstream. That's why I had mentioned SPF, DKIM, etc., so as to encourage external parties to better prioritize your outbound mail. Side note: I had tried to demonstrate to one particularly clueless client that their outbound mail was scoring 0.5 out of 10 (!) from the above-mentioned Mail-Tester.com. They insisted that they never had a problem, and that if recipients ever had trouble reading a PDF attachment, they would simply call to get a fax instead. My response (about them never getting the email in the first place) of course fell on deaf ears. The stupid, sometimes, it burns.
  7. Writing without the Internet. Or human contact. Or fresh air.

    Oh, I agree, Terra. I'm just seeking a viable business model. Does anyone think that people would pay a low monthly fee for the right to send and receive physical letters? I know various prison penpal programs exist, but I have to wonder if they make any money.
  8. What does this mean?

    Contact your email provider. While Mike's post is 100% correct, these are things that your host would do to repair your email website, rather than something that you do personally. (Of course, if you are personally running your own website-based email system, pay attention to Mike and ignore me.)
  9. Writing without the Internet. Or human contact. Or fresh air.

    Perhaps I should have used an adjective such as "previously from WF". There is no general access to computers or the Internet. The few times he was let out of solitary in the past, there was a highly limited form of monitored quasi-email, but he'll likely now remain in solitary for at least a few years.
  10. Writing without the Internet. Or human contact. Or fresh air.

    No, he's an associate from WF; he's in solitary for 15 years.
  11. Anyone else missing email notifications?

    Well, I usually receive everything (that I expect) from this site, until apparently recently.
  12. Anyone else missing email notifications?

    I posted this in the Spartan Help forum, Tag, regarding emails from the Spartan site.
  13. I just noticed that I wasn't getting all of the expected email notifications over the last few days, such as from the Warrior Forum thread in the Bar. Yes, I just double-checked my Spam folder, etc., etc. Please let me know if you would like a hand with things like SPF and the like. I've had quite a bit of success with https://www.mail-tester.com/ , if that helps.
  14. Writing without the Internet. Or human contact. Or fresh air.

    Yes. Well agreed on both points, save for perhaps some mechanical details. (e.g., Pencil and paper are allowed, but not sharpeners.)
  15. Writing without the Internet. Or human contact. Or fresh air.

    Yeah, there's pencil and paper, and then transcription on the outside.
