Discussion in 'Vegas Trip Reports' started by Joe Strummer, Sep 14, 2006.
maybe some other time -
when I have a free HALF HOUR !
Now you know why I do all lengthy posts in Word first and then copy & paste into a message board. Frickin internet!
Good luck writing something up again--looking forward to it!
Same here Hoya - Word first then post. It's safer & I like to save my trip reports locally anyway. Sorry about the report Joe. Hopefully we'll get to read it soon.
Happens to the best of us Joe... My first trip report was like that. Spent an hour typing and poof, gone... Now, word all the way...
Sorry Joe, that was me. I got as far as the third typo and lost patience. I hit the "delete" button while yelling "Again!"
It could be worse. I recall a time or two trying to make deadline for a newspaper article and losing the damn thing. That's a rough one to explain to the editor.
I logged in - wrote the whole thing - and then
the screen said I have to LOG IN ????????
What the _____ is that about ?
So, I tried loogging in (AGAIN !!!! ) and POOF ! I couldn't
get the epic novel back.
I only have one novel in me.
Why did I have to log in, again ?
That is wierd. This site doesn't time-out your login like an email or banking site. Occasionally the login thing gets goofed up, and you need to clear the cache and cookies, close browser, reopen and re-login.
What would cause this: I sometimes try and use the IE Back button at the top left of the browser here and on other sites, it never goes back to the previous page, it just seems to "refresh" the current page for lack of a better explaination. To get back to a prevoius page I have looked at, I need to click the small narrow black "down arrow" beside the Back button and navigate to the past page that way. Is my IE corrupt?
I know you are not a fan of IE if I remember correct?
That is correct, I'm not a fan of IE, although I don't think it's necessarily to blame here.
There's a variety of ways this could happen. Some sites have a redirect page -- in other words, you go to "mysite.com/index.html", but that page has a little code that automatically moves you on to "mysite.com/page2.html". If you click "back" from page2, it hits the redirect again, and bounces you right back to page2. Or, you click on a link that just moves you farther down the page. Then "back" would just move you back to the top of the page.
Here, IMO, that usually occurs when you're going to respond to a post and you click on the "quick reply". "Back" just moves you back to where you were before you clicked "quick reply".
If you're not replying, just viewing, I haven't encountered what you're describing, at least not here.
It looks as though this would be / should be a problem to work on over a couple of beers say at..... the Keno bar at the Plaza or else that new Irish bar / lounge at Jackie's
Or if you wanted to go more upscale, maybe somebody cold suggest a good watering hole at Wynn.
I'll met you at 5. I'm buyin'
Prop bet: Will Wynn or El Cortez be first to offer wifi in their lounges?
Speaking of wifi's - I'll need some advice as to how to renege on my promise to mine, that I wouldn't do Vegas for awhile...she'll be giving me the hairy eyeball for sure....
Oh...oh....is that a jones??
I'd like to hopefully get an MM4 trip on my radar......maybe.....the odds.....think along the same lines as the Jets or maybe a little better, the Raiders, winning the SuperBowl...
Any advice will be kept in strict confidence....LOL
Not to worry!
Not to worry Ross, it happens to all of us at one time or another. See you at MM4.:wave2:
This happened to me, luckily not on a lengthy TR. I got on the T2V site with the different headlines of recent posts and clicked on one of the headlines there. Because I did not actually log into the "message board" I was not logged in when I tried to submit a post I was advised that I was not logged in.
That's probably what happened. If you are not logged in you can read the posts, but you cannot submit a reply. A suggestion on how to check that is to preview the post early. That will let you know right away if you are logged in or not.
I don't know if this would work but if anyone else ever has this experience, I would click back & see if my text is still there rather than logging in. If it is, copy & paste it into Word & then log in. Then you can just copy it back to a new TR.
