THINGS YOU NEED TO KNOW


Please click 'profile' (at top),
then click 'preferences' tab,
then click "Allow newsletters".
This will let me mail you when some event
is coming up, so you know about it.
You won't get any other mail from it. No spam, none.
You'll just get to stay in the know about what's going on at your forum.

It is safe to put your email address in your profile, and in pm's. You'll never get spam from us. We won't give your address to anyone. But don't post your address in comments or the chat box. (because you don't want your email address posted publicly on the internet, you'd end up on somebody's spam list.)


The maximum width for a photo here is 645.
Please don't blow up the page by posting larger than that!

How to re-install your browser:


This question came up at one point. So here's how!

___________________________________________________________


To UNINSTALL FIREFOX:

First, make sure you have the needed .exe file to be able to re-install afterward!

~Get the .exe file from here: mediafire.com ?ve2yyo8t19dhym5 That is version 3. It's old but Firefox will update it immediately. (I actually prefer version 3. It's familiar and works easier. So I refuse the update.))

~To download that just click "download"

~click "Save file"

~DON'T CLICK TO INSTALL IT YET!


Second, save your bookmarks:

~Click "bookmarks", at top. A drop-down menu appears.

~Click "Organize Bookmarks". A box will open.

~At the top, in black, it says "Import and Backup". Click that.

~Then click "Backup"

~Don't forget to tell it where to send the backup file to, so you'll be able to find it if you need to use it


NOW, UNINSTALLING:

~Click the start ball, and then click 'Uninstall a Program'

~Find Mozilla Firefox (or Firefox) in the list. Put your cursor over it, and click "uninstall" (Be careful not to click anything but just it.

~When it asks if you want to 'keep your settings', do so! Click the box to keep your customizations, so when you re-install Firefox, it will be just as you had it.

~finish uninstalling


___________________________________________________________

To RE-INSTALL FIREFOX:

~ go in your "Downloads folder" and click on the "Firefox setup.exe" file you see there

~It will prompt you through the rest of the procedure.
_______________________________________________________________________


NOTE:

If you screwed up and didn't successfully save your settings, go back to the bookmarks menu, click "Organize Bookmarks". A box will open. At the top, in black, it says "Import and Backup". Click that. Click "restore". Find where you saved the backup file. Restore.



_______________________________________________________
One more suggestion: update your add-ons! (FOR FIREFOX: Click Tools /
then Add-ons / then -in the window that opens- click the extensions
tab / then look in lower right corner and click "find updates". ) This
will mean you've done what Mozilla recommended about this issue.
_______________________________________________________

How to never have to see ads or pop-ups again:

Let's face it, some folks mind them less than others, but ads suck. And pop-ups? Oh yikes.

So I installed a Firefox add-on called "Adblock Plus", and I never see ads! Or pop-ups! (It's pretty nice.) And it's simple enough to do. Here's how:


~Click 'Tools', in the menu at the top of your screen

~Click 'Add-ons', in the drop-down menu that opens up

~A box opens

~Click "Get Add-ons", in upper left corner

~The box changes to another one

~Click "Browse all add-ons" in upper right corner

~A web page opens

~In the upper right, where it says "Search for Add-ons", type "Adblock Plus"

~In the drop-down menu that opens, click the one that says JUST "Adblock Plus"

~In the middle of the page that appears, click the green button that says "+ Add to Firefox"

~Look at the top, where a bar just opened up informing you that Firefox blocked it. Click to allow!

~A window opens, click to "install now"

~Now you will see a web-page telling you to pick a filter. Chose the one it recommends.

~You'll never have to look at ads or pop-ups again.


NOTE: You will need to do this process again, but this time pick "Adblock Plus pop-up add-on" to install. That will add a pop-up filter to the Adblock Plus you just installed ;)



Additionally, do this (for Firefox):

~Click Tools / Options / Content tab/ then tick "block pop-up windows"


Now you will almost never see pop-ups or ads anymore!

How to make screen shots:

YOU ONLY HAVE TO DO THIS PART ONCE:

~click Start Ball / All Programs / Accesories
~Now right click on Snipping Tool
~and click "pin to taskbar", in the menu that opens
~Now you will see a little scissors icon on bar at bottom of screen.
You can click on that any time you want to make a screen shot


TO MAKE A SCREEN SHOT:

~click Scissors Icon ("snipping tool")
~click and hold on plus sign that appears, and drag to make a box around the area you want to save as a picture
~release click
~click 'File' (upper left of window that opened)
~click "Save As"
~where it says "save as type", select "PNG"
~click "Save"
~the picture is now in your Pictures folder.


~~You can edit your picture with Microsoft Office Picture Manager. (crop it , resize it, adjust brightness etc). [Microsoft Office Picture Manager is in your Microsoft Office Tools folder, in your programs menu.

~~A free Flickr account can be used to host a picture, so you can post it, or mail the url to someone.
Flickr is something you already have if you have a Yahoo Mail Account. Google it, sign in, and follow the instructions.


TIP: just take it one step at a time, and you can do this. Then you will do it easily, like a pro, once you have learned.
