« on: February 22, 2018, 07:06:22 PM »
hello PackRat
not just firefox.  had same issue here. just now happened attempting to log-in. you described it:"managed to bring up a different dialog box in the center of the screen" with the login button in the header. 
a login tussle is not so bad as ... it would not log me out!  i think it timed out at the sixty minutes set at login.  will see this time upon attempt to log-Out. 
It happened here vsido with vivaldi snapshot [chromium], machine updated the vivaldi snapshot (after waiting for it to log-out of vsido community) and it still happened again.  cleared cookies the second tussle and got normal log-in. then back to the refusal. now it happened using windowsten and seamonkey. 

edit: return here with the modify button, it logged-out instantly, had the log-in issues, succeeded using the Login button as before,
and again .. so the workaround here is that Login button in that header menubar thingie. Or the word login where it says Please Login; goes to page "...?action=login" is working.
_and again with using vsido and epiphany same symptoms and workaround. epiphany brought up a not secure message on the home page.  ... same again and again. successful log-out is okay now. 
._ and again. Clearing cookies does not seem to help.

hello hakerdefo

It is a misnomer to dub computer hardware "Memory", because a designer can explain or interpret how it functions.  Human memory cannot be explained.  I do appreciate the addition of "random access."
Experienced a random access today:
The absence of the LPs had me searching for a band name i did not find.  I had remembered Kilimanjaro. for years. until today.  The word kittyhawk came to mind. Oh. asked myself to what is that word connected. Why did I just mentally see that word.?  funny how the mind works.  Kittyhawk. That Band!   Where did that come from? 
Researching gave result kittyhawkgroup d o t c o m. 
I was introduced to the band a night Kittyhawk was the opener for The Dixie Dregs.[later, The Dregs.]  Was my first knowledge of the Chapman Stick.  As many as three participants in Kittyhawk play the stick and add guitar, drums, lyricon, saxophone, cello.  Kilimanjaro is a song title. 
KingCrimson includes the Stick. 

Also found a cd of a disconnected favorite LP.  rerelease of two albums by Lone Star.  cd BGO Records number BGOCD618. The band came out of Wales in May 1975.  That is one more for the british side, because it is my favorite music.  The cd has a great booklet of history, lyrics, two albums "Lone Star" and "Firing On All Six" , jacket does not have the original album numbers.  More on this a different day. 

The unseen LPs are on the move this week to a different storage location.  and today "Just listened to..." Kittyhawk.

hello VastOne hello everyone
See your chat about 64, so machine here grabbed _x32 for trial. Live is running.  This is the _x32_12Jan2018. 
A bit confused about Lite or not-Lite version so here is the shasum for what is running _32..
hope you can know from that number what machine likes here. 
next to the _64 dated 12Jan but uploaded 13Jan.  hopefully not-Lite one ready for next.

hi lwfitz 
If [a young person like you] likes Muddy Waters, then you will appreciate how special it was for me to shake hands with Sonny Terry and Brownie McGhee; in your area,, The Lighthouse at Hermosa Pier (Ave.)  I gave to Sonny Terry a harmonica. silly me.  I asked him why did he play the harmonica upside-down?  Mr. Terry said, "I just always did it that way."

hello PackRat 
my confession: the last time you put up that big-cat desktop ... when I saw the thumbnail I thought "That is cool. PackRat has done it again. What is that combination?"  I needn't tell you that it hit me with windows when i clicked the thumbnail. guilt?  tail between the legs I should have punished myself somehow.  To be honest, I got a "big-cat" one too.  Humorous when most of the similar posts that if mention microsoft include almost an automatic indicate my wife's machine. real or not.  I was more armed to recognize it this time. Ten hours was going through all the settings again? or churning a upgrade? did it to me twice last week.   nevermind the answer.

hakerdefo asks riV, "Do you still have those records?"
hello hakerdefo 
all but one out for lend that was not returned.   frown.   
Considered a rare opportunity and a grand challenge It took years to get the needle down onto all those unknown recordings.  I took possession of just a handful.  Listening to all that did make me wiser regarding the proliferative promotional recordings.  It meant there was another person like myself every three-hundred miles around the globe at another radio station, record store, or library.  The large base of samples did not aid to explain popularity; then or now.  You got me,,, i cannot say why. How [were] are the recordings organized at your local store?  What does RollingStone, billboard, and mTv have to say about your countries in competition for rock question?  what is Your answer, hakerdefo?
