      IE 11 copy/paste problem

      It has come to our attention that people using Internet Explorer 11 (IE 11) are having trouble with copy/paste to the forum. If you encounter this problem, using a different browser like Firefox or Chrome seems to get around the problem. We do not know what the problem is, but it seems to be specific to IE 11 and we are hopeful that Microsoft will eventually fix it.

      UPDATE on Upgrade   02/07/2017

      We were somewhat delayed on getting the upgrade done, but it looks like it will now be done in the next few days or possibly even later today.   There is one change coming with the new upgrade that may affect people when they log in. There will no longer be separate Usernames and Display Names. Your Display Name will now be the only name you have for the forum and, if you used your Username to log in, you will now need to use your Display Name. It is likely that everyone who visits after the upgrade will need to log in again, so please keep this in mind.   Update again - Feb 7 - We have completed the main part of the upgrade and we are working to tweak settings for the site.  It will probably take us a while, but we will eventually settle down to the way we want it.  In the meanwhile, your posts should be secure, but the look of the forum and some functions may change over time.

Congrats! What kind of SpeedTouch is that? The USB modem? I've been messing to get that online with SUSE 8.1 and never got it to work. Nowadays I'm using a router and don't care anymore... ^_^

I was using a dodgy SpeedTouch 330 adsl modem.

 

Now I'm trying to write a shell script to connect/disconnect the ADSL PPP connection.

I've been wanting to switch over to linux (FC) for a while, but yet to really have the time when at home to do so. I know at my work we are gradually switching over to using linux more and more. So hopefully I can finally get some use out of the linux classes I took back in the day.

Nicely done. I'm using Fedora Core 3 (it will be 4 when yum gets done with it), with my own compiled from source kernel and KDE installation. I've got an ADSL modem, so the default installation of Linux connected me to the internet. Too bad your service provider is a pain with Linux, but at least you've got it working now.
