   Tulsa posted on Computers &Tech Issues  FYI. Office 2007 will lose support Oct. 2017. No more updates, patches, etc.

   Tulsa posted on Computers &Tech Issues  Mei. Under your security settings, change the bubble from 'warn' to 'block'. I have Windows Defender in Win. 10. In Win. 7, it was MSSE (MS Security Essentials ). If you're bounced you know a site is infected. Just try the site later. Luci was for a time, constantly under attack.

StormC. can help you as much as I can, imo.

   Tulsa posted on Movies & Reviews  StormC. Pls see if you can help Escaped Com at the computer wall. I believe I read you have a program that backs up your files.

Very sorry to step on this wall.

And Mei, I saw your problem in the lobby ...will try to address. Best..love...all the good stuff to all.

   MeiDei  Just hit the mother page & all is well; this reminds me of a virus that went around the business community several years ago - that virus only appeared/created havoc during noon to 1:30 pm time slot.

   Tulsa  I have virus settings to 'block' not 'warn'. It will not let me on infected sites. Better safe than sorry. Left messages for you on the lobby wall (at the risk of offending other posters ) and also at the computer wall.

Very glad you have the all clear.

   Tulsa posted on Main Page The Lobby  In Win. 10, with ABP installed (semi useless for some time now ) in FireFox, clicking 'refresh' on the Lucianne homepage no longer removes ads.

The Edge browser in Win. 10 does block all ads, for now.

   Mildred  Hi Tulsa: Decided to check in with Lucianne/Connection (after many months of avoiding the site because of the objectionable ads )and saw your comments. I've been using FireFox with Win 7 and ABP per your suggestion several months ago. I still prefer IE 11 for most browsing but installed FireFox for Lucianne and have not had any problems with ads here. I don't know what I'll do when Win 7 becomes obsolete. I tried Win 10 when it first appeared and hated it! At this point I may take my daughter's suggestion and get a MAC. Thanks for all your help with the 'stuff' that makes using a computer a challenge.

   Kono  As an occasional lurker, occasional participant, I always saw this site as (a ) a tribute to Joshua, and (b ) a place where we could both bring up topics not directly stemming from a recent news story, and converse about them.
Recently (for lack of a better purpose, perhaps ) it's become a sort of tech support for people who want to escape advertiser oppression.
I can't help wondering if Ldotters got so divided over Trump that there just isn't a sense of community anymore. (Or maybe the hostile divide is over our brother Jonah's controversial turn a year ago... )

   Clipped wings  Kono, I have wondered why a lot of the tech issues aren't in the computer and tech "room".
Secondly,I used to visit a lot and post comments sometimes. Got the feeling I was unwelcome. The conversations seemed to grow stale.

   Jerico  I am running wind and using fireffox. I find that it helps to turn off images. Doesn't take so long to load. Of course, it only works if you don't care about most of the pics!

   Escaped commieny  Clipped you are welcome, but many left irritated by posters unable to use the appropriate walls and dumping in the lobby. Plus we lost the ability to check for 'latest posts' and people just don't have time to scroll through old posts to check for new comments. The Klatch was added for the 'around the water cooler' office chatter. You have a good point about people being divided by demon's regime, for instance, no one dared post to the 2nd amendment wall. Then we had some really great posters banned, for reasons that remain unknown. The prayer warriors rarely show up now, thank goodness for emails to keep in touch with the many that no longer post. And yes to Gram's mention of 'sickness & distress' , it was a bad year for losses of spouses and dire diagnosis given to many.

   Tulsa posted on Computers &Tech Issues  Windows 10 just had a very large update. Their browser Edge blocks ads on the Lucianne home page. MS has finally done one thing right. How long it lasts is anyone's guess. This doesn't make up for the previous year+ of pushing 10 and the ads and a list of other petty money grubbing things. I do have ABP installed on Edge, but we all know ABP has been paid off to show some ads. APB still blocks ads that blink and flash, etc. I can also remove ads in Firefox with ABP by clicking refresh on the homepage.

Found the above list. Pls let everyone know if any of these work. Give basic info as to what you are using, like Firefox and Win 10 for example. Thx.

   Tulsa posted on Movies & Reviews  Do made for tv movies count here? ...even that's a fudge, as I believe The Son is a mini series. StormC and other...are you watching it and what do you think?

   Gram77  I am watching The Son. Hubby says he finds it too disconnected. I am not a fan of movies/books that are done in flash back but am sticking with it. I like the cast.

   StormCnter  I have not been watching "The Son", but only because I find it hard to commit to a series. But, I've heard really good reviews of it from my friends. Anyone else read the book?
And yes, Tulsa, made for tv movies count. We post quizzes about them all the time.

   Tulsa  I like Piece B. His Texas accent is horrible. I watch almost anything new and original tho I can't tolerate violence and this period of our Country had it. ...I just watched thru my fingers!

   StormCnter  Tulsa, it's very distracting if an accent is bad. The worst Southern accents in my movie experience were Brando's in "Sayonara" and Elvis Presley (who had a real Southern accent but apparently had been overcoached ) in "Love Me Tender" ("But ah luuuv her, Va-yance" )

   Tulsa posted on Main Page The Lobby  Storm, to use FF again:

I had two problems with FF. The instructions below stop FF asking your location. Go to this link:

https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/geolocation/

Scroll down to' How do I turn off Location-Aware browsing permanently?' Click and follow the directions. It's short and sweet...easy peasy.

____________

The first set of instructions I posted was for another problem. ... the one that involved typing %7C in the homepage slot in Internet options....I confused my notes and I apologize to you and everyone else.

   StormCnter  There are never apologies necessary for offering advice, my good friend. People can always take it and use it or pass by it. You're always helpful and I thank you.
