Well, shoot!  I guess we just have to learn to love gremlins.  *L*

The trick is to minimize and never shut down. LOL

With dial-up, I already get a lot of snarls from the family about never being able to reach me by phone (don't have a cell phone either *L*).  And...although my SO has a separate line and different server, he is also on dial-up, so there are many times when we are both online and unreachable.  I just tell people to email me.  However, I have some setting on my computer that insists on my computer being online, unless I specifically block the dial-in function.  I know it's something that I have done, because my old computer did the same thing, but I've never been able to track it down.  Anyway, that means I could be 50 miles away and still inadvertently online and won't even get the emails.  *L*

Rats, I must have jinxed myself with the previous post. Had to log in now. And the @ key is a really weird combo on German keyboards that cannot be done with one hand only...

The other day I saw something that speeds up a dial up connection. I meant to save it, but forgot. I'll see if I can find it.

Had to sign in day before yesterday, but not yesterday.  Today, back to signing in again.  All I have to input is my e-mail and my remembered pass word fills in automatically.  Once that's done, everything works fine.

I keep telling it to remember my password, but it doesn't do it.  It does, however, fill in my email address almost as soon as I start it.

Yesterday I couldn't get in until I changed my password.....to the original password....it worked. Today, no problem.

That has happened to me, too.  But recently they said my password was invalid, and when I tried to change it to the original password, they said I couldn't use my old password!  Go figure.

Okay, now I have to sign in all of the time.  It happened once or twice, but now it is every time...this is a site improvement?

It's been explained already... it's because of some behind-the-scenes upgrades:

Here's the response I received from Taunton:


I am sorry for the difficulty on our web site.  They have been making improvements to all of the web sites, FineCooking.com included.  The pro. We are in the process of upgrading our servers behind the scenes. Because of having our website content migrated over to our new servers, this might temporarily require you to login multiple times. We expect this upgrade to be completed late October if all goes well. Please let me know if you need any further assistance. Thank you for your patience in this matter and for your interest in Taunton Press Publications.

 



We are all in the same boat, you and me and ex-Gov. Palin and Rep. Joe Wilson, and wealth and social status do not prevail against disease and injury. And now we must reform our health insurance system so that it reflects our common humanity. It is not decent that people avoid seeking help for want of insurance. It is not decent that people go broke trying to get well. You know it and I know it. Time to fix it.

Oh sorry that I missed that and as I look back, the print was so tiny, no wonder I didn't stop to read it...

There is no way to speed up dial-up connections. The highest speed the modem can legally attain is 53 kilobits per second because of speed limits. The Federal Communications Commission does not explicitly set a speed limit on how fast a modem can transmit data, but it does regulate the power of the signal, which in effect puts a limit on speed. The power limit of -12dBm -- in plainer language, about 63 microwatts -- for phone lines was set to prevent interference or noise bleeding into adjacent lines and other electrical devices.

The "trick" these turbo boosters use is to cache frequently used web pages so that they can be delivered to you immediately rather than waiting for a new page to be served every time.

That's probably it--"turbo" strikes a chord.  ;o)

But, but, it's SUPPOSED to taste like that!

Lately they've been making me log in every once in a while but not every time.  I can't imagine what is causing this.

Had to sign in yesterday and today - I start my email address and it and the password default in.  Still, a pain...

I emailed the Taunton webmaster about the sign in problem and recived a very quick response.  The problem appears to be unavoidable and it doesn't sound like it will be going away any time soon.  Here's the response:

Yep. Each time, no matter that I check 'remember me.'
