Thank you richsea, I knew I was not going mad on the corkage thread

Nice one :D

I don't know about the links. Does CM use google ads. They sometimes will pickup on a phrase in a posting and tuck in some ad that has nothing to do with anything.

katlady October 6th, 2008 10:04 AM

Maybe it's some cookie on your computer doing it. :-? I have a problem with my Yahoo e-mail some thing has gotten on there and it e-mails everyone in my address book, spam and it looks like I sent it. :x

DayvidB October 6th, 2008 03:24 PM

Thats different, you have at his moment in time more than one virus, or trojan working on your computer,,eh,,mm How up to date is your firewall and anti virus software?

But something happened here regarding links and not sure what :-?

Kuki October 6th, 2008 03:39 PM

If you're logged in to the site, you don't see any of those links.


If you're not, and just surfing, you'll see them.

It's being run as an experiment, but there's really no need for you to log off of the site if you visit often, so it shouldn't be a problem avoiding them.

DayvidB October 6th, 2008 03:57 PM

Sorry Kuki , I was logged in. How else could I have been constructing a reply to a thread that suddenly started embedding hyperlinks into it?

Can you post here without being logged in, get that box that allows you to type? I was writing, not reading

reverendjeff October 8th, 2008 10:20 AM

I for one have no idea what you folks are talking about.

Done it and for the church rev, and I have donated $10,000, so you have a good time rev

my pleasure, 8)

reverendjeff October 9th, 2008 09:29 AM

Thanks, now I can spend more money on ship photos, and one of those ship tattos!
I can also pay for an upgraded steak, and one of thse foo foo drinks the ladies always speak about.

And of course, I will say a few prayers for the church while i'm gone.

Actually guys on a different and serious note, the rev could use your thoughts and prayers. It looks like I may have to have some brain surgery done to remove a cyst in the brain. I will know for sure in the morning when I meet with the doctor.

Peace -

I wish you the best and I will pray for your quick recovery.

Well crap rev, I was having such a good day up until now. But that announcement has just taken the wind out my sails bud.

This will work out, as always my deepest respect and my prayers go to you my friend.

You keep in touch

David

Blessings on you, Rev. Will pray for a speedy recovery and no bad news.
Marty

reverendjeff October 10th, 2008 02:59 PM

Thanks for the prayers. As it turned out today, the cyst would ordinarily need to come out, but the ventricles are not large enough for the surgical instruments to fit into safely.
Without great detail this means no surgery right now and who knows, I may not have any problems. If it does become more symptomatic, then we go on with the removal.

Doc, said there could be a risk of brain damage if we do it now, wife said, how would we know. LOL

colorcrazie October 10th, 2008 03:11 PM

SO glad to hear the good news. And your wife sounds like my hubby. WHile sincere sympathy can be good, I prefer a good chuckle.
Thankfully,
Marty

DayvidB October 10th, 2008 03:17 PM

You take care

Mike M October 10th, 2008 04:50 PM

Jeff:

My best to you. I advise that brain surgery should always be done only when absolutely necessary. I have a couple of neurosurgeons who want to cut my brain and try a new surgery. They look on me more as Guinea Pig and not a person.

Take care,
Mike

Paul Motter October 11th, 2008 12:30 PM

I certainly hope for the best for you, Jeff.

As far as the ads go - please just log into CM, and do not log out. I never log out and the site will keep you logged in unless you do something to log out. When you are logged in you do not see them.

It is possible that you see them when previewing a new message, I am not sure.

richsea October 11th, 2008 04:49 PM

My best to you Jeff. Always maintain your sense of humor!

As to the ads, thanks for the info, but I never sign out, but when I visit each day I have to sign back in each time, & if I'm just reading posts I don't. Don't know why it asks me to sign in, it's probably something about my cookies, which I don't understand. It doesn't happen to all sites. I use IE & Mozilla, & it happens with both. :?:

Paul Motter October 12th, 2008 12:58 PM

You must have regiatered at a time when it wasn't writing cookies correctly - there were a few days when that happened when we first transitioned to these boards. I would suggest trying something like changing your password, submitting, (and then change it back and resubmit if you want). That should re-write the cookie. I don't think anyone else is having that problem here, I know I don't.

mehawk October 14th, 2008 03:41 PM

Gosh Jeff. Prayers help and I will be sending them your way and asking others to do the same. I have seen and experienced miracles of prayer. Here they come.
