I have been receiving a lot of private mail on my forum asking "How do I post"? Have others come across this problem? How did you resolve it?

If they can PM then surely they can post???

I find either quoting from or pointing to the FAQ section usually works, and if they still can't suss it out after that then I tell them to power off the PC and go and do something else!

Or, are you saying that they are getting 'post not sent from a valid host' message? If so then they need to add your site to their firewall.

Some think that the send private IS the post button. Others send a PM requesting instructions on how to post and some send the same message to the support email address. Is anyone putting a message on the main index or the like?

Hi,

"only 20?"
Hey, that's more than half my life
Got started with a Commodore 64. Had to do a search on Google to proof to the kids (well young people, they're mid 20s) I'm working with here that we used to use tape cassettes to store games on. And even then they had a hard time believing me

20 years? not long! I started by writing a program in hexadecimal to analyze some physics data I had taken on a Bendix G-15 computer whose memory was a rotating magnetic drum, and I am not talking about a current hard drive! (Now I sometimes find that html seems like hexadecimal seemed then.)

Then I remember when it was a great advance in the late 60's to use a PDP7 or 9 for data taking and analysis, partly because it was so cheap to double the memory: i.e., a 16 KB memory module only cost $5000! And you wouldn't believe the number of analytical options that would fit into 16 KB!

Hi,

Should have figured there were a couple of old farts here who've been computers longer than me
