    I am seriously about to panic!! I can't read anything on the quilting board. I received a private answer to my post about not being able to get into the board for the last two days. I can pull up the home page of the Quilter's Message Board, but all the is showing is the headings (home, Qulting Newsletter, Live Chat, Search, User List, Help, etc. Nothing else appears. I can't read anything, but I am able Create a New Topic. The home page bottom left corner tells me the pull up is "Done, but with errors". Gosh, I miss you all!!!!!

    That would be my suggestion as well. Shut down your computer and completely reboot.

    You can reboot it, but sometimes you need to clear out your folders. Click on tools, scroll down to internet options, and it will bring up folders/cookies, visted sites, clear them and that might help.

    Turn off your ad blockers and clear your cache. It sounds like you have blocked most of the site as well as the ads.

    You might also try using a different web browser than you normally use. Google Chrome, Firefox, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer and probably half a dozen more but those are the more popular.

    I use Firefox most but Facebook doesn't play well with it so switch to Chrome quite often and I have to use Internet Explorer to log in to most of my work related (secure) sites. Safari I use to "see" what hubby is doing wrong about something he is looking at on his iPad or iPhone and Opera is what my phone uses.

    Whew!!!, Finally got you all back! I signed on today and everything came back so I am able to get my fix of quilting talk today. I didn't even know if my messages were getting through, but I see that several of you answered me even if I couldn't read your answers. Thank you each and every one! I am on dial up (the stimulus money hasn't yet came through to get DSL out here in the boondocks) So I have to turn off the computer unless I am actually using it, so rebooting wasn't helphing any. I'll probably never know why I couldn't read any messages, but now that I can it doesn't matter. You can see I have learned to take things in stride, but I have no patience when I can't get to my favorite websit. Gosh, it's good to be back!
