    Just Neesie, Checking In

    Just want to let my friends know I haven't deserted the QB. For some strange reason, my computer keyboard doesn't want to cooperate with this one site. It usually skips letters, unless I type very, very, very, very slowly, which is extremely frustrating. The alternative is to peck out letters one by one, on my iPad. Anyway, just wanted to pop in and give everyone a {{{{{ hug }}}}}. Am still reading but it's just too frustrating, to try responding to multiple posts.

    I don't think it's your keyboard alone, my I pad is ok but my computer does the same as yours....

    The remedy for an unruly keyboard is...........

    Place the offending object under a tire and put it in reverse.
    Then run off to Best Buy and get a new one.

    Glad to see your still with us!! Nessie

    Good to see you. Your typing issues with this site are likely due to the browser you are using to get to the internet. I currently use Mozilla Firefox and have no issues. I have had those same issues in the past with Internet Explorer. Just a thought/suggestion.

    Hi Neesie,
    others have had this problem. It is not your keyboard, as it only happens here. This thread may be useful to you:

    Neesie,
    I tried the suggestions in this thread. I can't remember which one it was that worked, but I had the exact same problem as you!

    My key board is having issues too. I am the hunt and peck typist and I know I am hitting the correct keys but a lot of the time when I look up there will be several words misspelled --2 k's came up instead of 2 Ls and I hit the L. And it is always the letter to the left. I may do as Chasing Hawk suggests and just run the bugger over and be done with it. My son say's to throw it in the dish washer next time and use the heat /dryer cycle -then set it in the sun to make sure it is totally dry. It will take me 3 months to fill the DW to justify using it. He does this once a month and he's been using the same kb for 3 yrs.

    Seriously? In the dishwasher? I found switching from internet explorer to chrome did the trick for me.

    Did you try first hitting the A/A tab that is directly under "quick reply" first? This always fixes it for me and I can type with no problems. (The tab on the far left right about where you would type a quick reply.)

    I have had the same problem and stopped for quite a while, but it's working OK now. It is just this site.

    I haven't been posting/shareing for the same reason! So far the fix works! I have been remodeling my sewing room and have 320 YARDS of fabric folded on comic boards(so far) - don't tell my DH! I don't have a smart phone so don't know how to post photos, just be assured my sewing room is PERFECT and you all will be green with envy, LOL

    Since it works with every other site, I hesitate to do that. A minute ago, it was skipping but now it's working properly. Not sure what the trigger is. I did change the compatibility setting thing but immediately afterwards, it started skipping. Just logged out and back in again, so maybe that set the change in motion. If so, YAY!!!!

    THANK YOU, everyone! If it starts goofing up again, I'll try some of the other tricks. {{{{{ BIG HUGS }}}}}

    I think we must be having an Electronics rebellion, of some sort. I also post on one of the very popular social sites (I'm not sure we're allowed to mention names, but y'all probably know the one) and every now and then, my iPad or iPhone refuses to support that app. As soon as I start to scroll, it shuts down the program. On the computer, it works just fine. Have rebooted and deleted/restored app, with no luck. Then as suddenly as the problem began, it'll vanish. Yep, our electronics are out to drive us all batty!

    Me, too! Switched to Chrome, transferred my bookmarks and haven't had any problems since. Haven't even used IE since either.

    Neesie, I don't have that problem on this site, but I sometimes do on yahoo mail. I use the Firefox browser, so it's not IE alone that is a problem. One work-around is to type whatever I want to type in a text program, such as Notepad, which comes with Windows. Then you can copy and paste it into the text window here or wherever you want it. I always enjoy seeing your comments here and that cute little dachshund face.

    It is not you...it happens to me all the time, but only on this site. I think it is the auto save getting hung up on saving your post. None of the suggested fixes work for long. I don't know the solution and yes it does keep me from posting many times. If I were the owners of this site I would look for a fix, not blame the poster or deny any problems. Just a thought.
