Re: Shut Down vs Sleep

I suggest that you do the "hibernate" that your son is doing. For one thing, it allows a quick re-start the next time you turn it on.

Re: Gremlins using my internet?

Depends on exactly which light on the modem is flashing. First, I assume that you have a cable modem and that it is ON all the time, even if you don't have any computers running.

If this is the case then at least one of the lights on the [more]

Re: money saver...

Yep - been doing this at Fry's for several years now.

We also get our prescription meds there for the same reason. And, every once in a while they have a deal where you get 4 times the gas points when buying a gift card. We've even bought a [more]

Re: Beware Microsoft patch KB 2918614

I just double checked my Win updates and like you this patch was

Re: driving me crazy! javascript not running

And, FWIW, the page opens up and the ad is displayed just fine if I use IE (on the same computer that it does not display when using FireFox).

Re: driving me crazy! javascript not running

Don't know if this is of any help or not but when I go to your link using my iPad, the script apparently works because I can see the info displayed. But, when I do the same thing using FF on my computer, nothing is displayed (meaning, I assume that [more]

Re: my i-Pad

I'm not sure how to do a hard shutdown on the iPad
