   Chillijilli posted on Main Page The Lobby  Thanks immensely, especially for being granted a Phooey pardon fro all of my gross violations!! Standing O on that one! haha Big smiles!
Is there a known Apple user lurking around as I really don't know what the "circled i" is. Am determined to beat this red dot to a pulp, just as I did a scorpion the other night. Can be pretty vicious, so maybe Phooey should rethink pardon.

   Tulsa  Chilli, The i in a circle shows site information, such as tracking protections, and permissions you give a site.

If I were you, I'd find an apple forum..just search apple or whatever your device is called and then forum. You may have to sign in. I basically read what problems people have and the answers and find solutions to my questions/problems in Win. 10.

You also ought to have a help icon on your device. Type in or click the problem and it gives you info on how to fix. Other than that talk to real live people you know who have the same device and problems and see what they do.

I hope this helps.

   Chillijilli posted on Main Page The Lobby  Please forgive me for posting about a tech problem here. There's more info on the Computer/Tech Issue wall but I wondered if any of you are having "invalid certificate" problems right now as I am? I'm getting urgent loud dinging on my devices with pop ups warning me that the"lucianne.com certificate is invalid" and is a site "pretending to be lucianne.com" For more info or if you are experiencing the same problem, please check my latest post on the Computer/Tech wall. Sorry to interrupt like this :-/. but if it's just me, that's one thing---if many of us, it could be an entirely different issue. Thanks tons.

   StormCnter  I abandoned a newly suggested browser because it wouldn't allow me to view Lucianne.com, giving me the "invalid certificate" message. I uninstalled the browser and went back to old reliable Firefox, Chrome and Opera. None of those give me any trouble with Lucianne.com.

   Tulsa  Chilli, this was posted by another Ldotter some time ago. I failed to note the moniker or I would attribute it.

'In regards to the certificate problem: One-my login password is unique to Luci so I don't worry about that. And don't log in any where else that is not secure.
Two- I click on the circled "i", arrow over to More Information, then click on permissions and block all except images for the Connection, and block everything, including 'load images' on the mothership. You will see the icons of items you blocked in the address bar. Works for Drudge too. I continue to use Firefox w/Adblock'

The above poster is correct. After reading those comments and doing as suggested, I am no longer concerned bout Luci's certificate. It is not secure, but she or her staff could check my ISP if anyone used my moniker and password. I don't post trash or profanity and I believe they know that.

   Escaped commieny  good morning. Tulsa that was me, it's actually fun to check that information circle and deny permissions at some of the 'littered' site. The Adblocked some Video's I wanted to see, so I let that be disabled for that site but used the permissions to block my location and its access to leaving garbage on my PC.
Now Surfie !! you don't check your email do you, have been worried about you during the tornado's and Phooey how did you make it through Irma? We didn't lose power but the cell tower went down. And the neighbors 70 ft tree landed in our yard. 3XALADY traveled to PortCharlotte for vacay and there is a lot of damage. They still haven't cleaned our street of debris and it's what a month ! ?

   Chillijilli posted on Computers &Tech Issues  Ohhhh nooo. I've had nothing but problems on lucianne for the past 2 months. I've sent Luis numerous email but have never received a reply---which is most unusual, based on past behavior. The latest harangue is that while scrolling to read I suddenly get loud dinging and a pop up that tells me the "lucianne.com certificate is invalid" and the URL might be "pretending to be lucianne.com." I also have a red dot that is present along the right side of the text.
I'm an Apple person, and this same thing happens on my iPhone, iMac, MacBook, iPad---but ONLY on Lucianne.com---no other URL. My different devices range from old---> brand new. All have current Safari updates and all sync. I have reset, reloaded, run Malwarebytes, cleaned my Mac, used Firefox instead of Safari, done everything possible...but still these certificate validation windows keep popping up. I'm not a giver-upper, but my tolerance is running really low on this. Thought some of you guys may have experienced similar issues and could help? Thanks tons

   Tulsa  One other suggestion. Turn OFF your sound. Mine is never on unless I turn it on. Then I turn it off again.

Doing the above that I re-posted by another ldotter should block the images and red dots.

I have written Luis and Luci about the certif. also and received no response.

   Chillijilli posted on Betty Jean  ahhh yes. Those Banana Cabanas. They ARE good, aren't they? Glad you remember and enjoy! Sorry, I've been wayyyy out of the radar for awhile. We unexpectedly sold our house after a neighbor/realtor asked for a" 1-time only" showing. We have NO idea where to go---but have decided to leave Tucson after 15+ years. As you can imagine, things have been a little hectic.

   Rollingcow  Party lines where everyone had their own ring combination.
Clackers-those big acrylic balls on strings that you made clack together. I can remember someone in high school loosing her grip on a pair and they flew down the hall narrowing missing several students who would probably have died if hit and crashing through one of the big windows by the doors that went out. They were banded at school after that one.
I'm sure there's more, I'll have to give it some thought.

   Schatzi51  Does ANYONE remember birthday corsages from the early 60's? They were fancy pompom bows with ribbon streamers hanging with everything from tootsie rolls to sugar cubes (sweet 16) to tiny dog biscuits attached. You could buy them ready-made or home-made and if you were VERY popular you'd sport a bunch of these on yer blouse.
I've never met anyone outside of my hometown on Long Island who remembers these.

   MsCharlotteVale  Adults with common sense. Once in grammar school I asked my teacher what some little bubble was on my little finger. She said it was a something-or-other and told me when I got home to sterilize a sewing needle with either a lighted match or some alcohol and then to lance the bubble. I went home and did that and the surgery went well. Can you imagine doing something like that nowadays? I must have been about ten at the time. (We never had any nurses in my schools, BTW.)

   Hammock  I remember those foot x-ray machines in the shoe stores. We'd put our feet in and wiggle our toes to see the skeleton feet. Our biggest regret is that there was no way to see the rest of us. We'd take turns putting our hands in the foot slot for our friends to see our skeleton hands. Somebody tried putting their nose in the slot, but that didn't work out too well.

   SsMom  Anybody remember Ben Casey blouses? I had a pen pal in Japan who wanted one and so my mom got one and we sent it to her. She sent me back a kimono - had no idea how to tie the sash, plus I was 5'7" and it was made for someone a LOT smaller! I think my 5'2" mom used it for a housecoat!

   Rollingcow  We still have a drive-in movie here, it's very popular with young families. It's fun to pile everyone you can into the cars and go, the kids play around the cars and we have a picnic supper before the movies start. SsMom, I met a young couple from Japan-the man was in KumDo (the Korean version of Kendo) with my son and his wife used to come to the classes to watch. They were going to Palmer to become Chiropractors and we all got to be good friends. I made them a quilt for their first baby and she had her mother send me a kimono, being on the short side it fits pretty well but I never wear it , it's just so beautiful I don't want anything to happen to it.

   Chillijilli posted on Shopper's Beware Caveat Emptor  I'm considering a change from Comcast. Does anyone have any experience with Direct TV ? Customers have to lock in for a 2 yr contract, and I've heard rumors that DTV has started dropping some popular programming, leaving subscribers livid. I've read that DTV's On Demand feature has to first run through the internet, which sounds like it could be a problem...but how about the programming or customer service? Any help out there in LDotLand would be really appreciated.

   Nugoddess  About eight years ago, we switched from Dish Network to Direct TV and haven't looked back. Customer service is excellent, reception is superb, and the menu(s) make sense. I do not know of any channels DTV has dropped and they add new ones all the time. We love Direct TV.

   Nugoddess  Ynaught, your experience was ours before HD programming. We upgraded to a fancy-schmancy television and contacted Dish for local programming in HD. They told us, sure, no problem, but it would be an additional $10.00 per month. That just wasn't going to happen when DTV offered local channels in HD for free.

Our programming is interrupted during heavy rainfall but the same thing happened with Dish so it's a wash for us in that area.

   Pickle1  Have had Direct TV since 2001. Have trouble only at the beginning and when I switched to HD; but no complaints 99.9 percent of the time. They are expensive though. Have Comcast on my computer. Have lots of problems with it. Maybe it's because they are always changing and upgrading instead of ironing out the problems that exist like keeping customers online. I was originally with RoadRunner; but was thrown over to Comcast. Loved RoadRunner because they were fast and reliable; but had no choice.

There should be some rules that they have to 'show up' and sit and listen. Numbnutted speeches would stop. They do the speeches for their constituencies to view. Making the poor fools (like me) think they're out there working passionately on my behalf while they're diddling the interns.
