  1. Hi Ano, perhaps you can help me as I have no tech/computer skills. I recently downloaded Real player to acces TFNN and Tom O'brien. It worked fine,however, Windows Media player will not load Ike's interviews. A message comes up after 21 seconds into the download stating "network connection failed". :huh: I deleted Realone program and reloaded windows media player 7.0 and still the same response. I can access other radio programs with Windows media player without a problem. It only seems to be a problem on Ike's site. Suggestions? :unsure:

    three ways to fix. your real player is fried.


    1. uninstall real player and reinstall it. that sometiems fixes the problem.

    2. uninstall real player and see if medai player will play the file ok.

    3. leaving real player uninstalled, install winamp (free) www.winamp.com. awesome free program plays practically anything. (This would be THE first thing I would try for a customer after uninstalling real player).


    Let me know how it works out :)

  2. I have been trying to post a small image file for the last several days but no luck. The file is only 7K in size and is a .gif file. I have tried to attach the file using the browse window in the attachment section (and set it to the correct file and directory on my hard drive, etc.) When I preview the post, the image does not show in the preview window at all - just whatever text I wrote. I am running behind a firewall, so do I need to set it to allow cookies, etc. What am I doing wrong?


    Later, Grot

    you are not doing anything wrong. Attached images do not show until actually 'added' (submitted) and added to the thread. from there you can see it and edit the post if needed


    Let me know if you are still having problems:)

  3. Anoscope,


    I have avoided this question for a while out of embarrassment but, could you please explain to me how I can copy a picture from another site and then place it in this post box?  I know I have to change jig. to gif.  I can't figure it out.  Please tell me how?



    example: I went to www.bigcharts.com and right-clicked the upper left hand image that looks like this


    then I highlighted the url by click&hold-drag across the url making it all highlighted.


    then i changed to this page, hit the IMG button above, and pasted the url into that new popup window, then I hit enter. result is on this page link is/was



    If you get a red x, it may not work bacause the site doesn't allow remote linking (that is what we are doing, getting an image from another server).


    Hope that example is clear :)

  4. test2

    when you compare your capture to the real java screen are they virtually identical? The background is so dark, that the lines painted on it don't show up.


    2 suggestions. try to change the indicator lines and number displays to a brighter color, for example solid red white or red. 2nd is to change the line 'width' to 2 to make it stand out more.


    The two images you posted are .gif and that is good, .jpg not needed. When you used the program that resized it, did you select or see a choice to select for 'smart resize' or preferred pixel resize?


    if you can state a size, limit the resize to 5 inches wide, and mark the box or menu choice to maintain the original aspect (original dimemsions ratio). that will help make the picture look better.


    let me know if I can help more!

  5. Does anyone know how to display posts in the reverse order, for example, the latest post to a thread displays at the top of the thread ... not at the bottom?





    I looked thru the help files on this board and the creator's site but nothing on that.


    I read a lot of different computer boards, and I've never seen that option.


    When you refresh, do you hit the f5 key (windows)? that way yhyour current position on the page you are viewing is preserved, new posts appear below the last one you viewed.


    Let us know if we can help you in any way :)

  6. A BRAIN! I'll check back later, the tune's not playing. Can't miss that.

    retards at bellsouth's support center can't find the server to reboot it if you can believe that story told to me. No reason a server should be not backed up and competent tech support available 24/7. (sgh)

    Who says Republicans don't have a sense of humor!


    Conversation between Condoleeza Rice (National Security Advisor to the President) and George W.

    George: Condi! Nice to see you. What's happening?

    Condi: Sir, I have the report here about the new leader of China.

    George: Great. Lay it on me.

    Condi: Hu is the new leader of China.

    George: That's what I want to know.

    Condi: That's what I'm telling you.

    George: That's what I'm asking you. Who is the new leader of China?

    Condi: Yes.

    George: I mean the fellow's name.

    Condi: Hu.

    George: The guy in China.

    Condi: Hu.

    George: The new leader of China.

    Condi: Hu.

    George: The Chinaman!

    Condi: Hu is leading China.

    George: Now whaddya' asking me for?

    Condi: I'm telling you Hu is leading China.

    George: Well, I'm asking you. Who is leading China?

    Condi: That's the man's name.

    George: That's who's name?

    Condi: Yes.

    George: Will you or will you not tell me the name of the new leader of China?

    Condi: Yes, sir.

    George: Yassir? Yassir Arafat is in China? I thought he was in the Middle East.

    Condi: That's correct.

    George: Then who is in China?

    Condi: Yes, sir.

    George: Yassir is in China?

    Condi: No, sir.

    George: Then who is?

    Condi: Yes, sir.

    George: Yassir?

    Condi: No, sir.

    George: Look, Condi. I need to know the name of the new leader of China. Get me the Secretary General of the U.N. on the phone.

    Condi: Kofi?

    George: No, thanks.

    Condi: You want Kofi?

    George: No.

    Condi: You don't want Kofi.

    George: No. But now that you mention it, I could use a glass of milk. And then get me the U.N.

    Condi: Yes, sir.

    George: Not Yassir! The guy at the U.N.

    Condi: Kofi?

    George: Milk! Will you please make the call?

    Condi: And call who?

    George: Who is the guy at the U.N?

    Condi: Hu is the guy in China.

    George: Will you stay out of China?!

    Condi: Yes, sir.

    George: And stay out of the Middle East! Just get me the guy at the U.N.

    Condi: Kofi.

    George: All right! With cream and two sugars. Now get on the phone.

    (Condi picks up the phone.)

    Condi: Rice, here.

    George: Rice? Good idea. And a couple of egg rolls, too. Maybe we should send some to the guy in China. And the Middle East. Can you get Chinese food in the Middle East?
