      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.

STEP 3 - Please do not "Bump" your post


Please do not bump your post, it will only delay service for your log. When selecting logs we generally use two criteria to look for unanswered logs.

We started from the oldest to the most recent. That means if you keep bumping, your log is at the top of the list, and since we do not work from the top, it will be looked at last!!

We look for first for posts with no replies. A bump is a reply so you get pushed further down the response ladder.

We have a mechanism in place to handle posts that have had no reply in the last 48 hours. See this post for more information.


Read that. :wave:
