Re: Finally!!!!!!!!! The Forum is back.

Quick follow-up. Found the "Manage 'Remember Me' Login Keys" option on my user control panel. Yep; the board is definitely logging me out and every time I log back in it sets a new login key; I attached a screenshot showing the five unique keys set in two days, all for the same machine at ...

Re: Finally!!!!!!!!! The Forum is back.

The Texas Flag logo looks great, even better than before (seemed to be two of them overlapping each other before). But... I tend to stay logged-on with the forum up in a browser tab. Now, even after being sure I'm checking-off "stay logged in," I'm getting logged off after a couple of hou...

Re: GOP Rep. Greene to File Articles of Impeachment Against Joe Biden One Day After Inauguration

On the outside chance that her ploy would work, does she really want a President Kamala Harris? I don’t. This is just political posturing that serves no useful purpose. Yeah; that's the sad reality. Not just the political posturing part. But to think that after January 20 the order of Presidential ...

Re: Alternate Comms

All they need to shut down ham radio is some kind of precipitating event to use as an excuse. For example, somebody sets off a bomb, and investigators find out they planned it using ham radio. Pow, it'd be shut down in a heartbeat. Shutting down ham radio would not be easy at all. Hundreds of thous...

Re: House Dems Introduce Bill To ‘Abolish Electoral College’

Whenever someone brings this up to me I always ask them if they also agree that the Senate should be based on population instead of each state getting the same number of senators. That usually leads to a discussion of the background on this including the Great Compromise, States Rights, etc. And as...

Re: Finally!!!!!!!!! The Forum is back.

I hate to be a nit-picker, but I noticed, that in Recent Topics, when you open one, it sends you to the last post in the thread. I guess, it's not that big of an issue, but, If you haven't read the OP, you have to scroll back to the top, or even go back a page or two. I don't know if that is just p...

Re: Finally!!!!!!!!! The Forum is back.

I fell out of my chair when I tried the forum again just now. I mean, literally. Spilled coffee everywhere, knocked over furniture. I'd checked it several times a day at first; then a few times a day; then once or twice a day; then about once every other day... Woo hoo ! My dear wife had to tell me ...
