Things don't work still Pleas Help

Dear Sailnet,

Is there a way to have you all just delete my subscription and let me start over again?

My IE does not let me log on.
Google Chrome does not let me subscribe to threads.
I get no email notifications even though I have the stuff set properly.
Click on stuff and get jumped to bottom of page. Strange.

What else is there to do?

I want to keep up but cannot.

email - jeffs at tampabay dot rr dot com

consider doing a deep scan for virus's also try firefox as your browser, it's faster then IE and IE is always getting hacked, attacked, and wormed.
Also delete all cookies, temp files.

Thanks Denise. But now it is working again. There is no answer.

I can use another computer somewhere else and try to log on and cannot. This means it has nothing to do with my desktop IE, cookies, viruses or anything else.
I used my son's desk top yesterday and could not log on. I used my wife's laptop on the boat with an air card and could not log on.

It is a total mystery to all that have tried to help.

And I do appreciate the attempts by faster, tdw and others.

It is truly a mystery.

All else fails, create another account using an alternate freebie email acct. I know this site discourages sock puppets but in this case...

The best advice is to stop using IE. Firefox is a much more stable and secure browser, and it supports current web standards. I'm a web developer, so I've seen first hand that nothing good can come out of using IE.

I used to have trouble with IE as well. I could not link to a youtube video to save my life. I changed to Google Chrome and all is well. This of course has nothing to do with your problem, but still dump IE.

I wonder if it has anything to do with your ISP. Have you tried logging on from a completely different ISP, like go to the library and use their computers?

See post #5.

But it works again.

And last night at the "work place" I used the same computer that I tried before and wallah, it works from there too. At least last night it did.

It's really strange.

So,
Over the last few days I noticed that email notifications stopped working again.
This can't be related to software used to connect to the internet can it?
