Hello :)

in MSN messenger a few nights a go I adcanley hit "sign me in automatically" on one of my account & now when I login it try to login me in to MSN messenger automatically, but Thank forley I did not enter my password so it does not work, but it still says "sign in as account e-mail address" how do I change that so this does not happen any more?

Also has any one noticed when you have firefox open & 4 windows explores, 5 firfox table's, 8 internet explores ,notepad, QuickBooks Pro Timer, OE, MSN messenger open & you have not used firefox for an hour or so It tacks a few mins/secs to open?

And also is it me or has Press F1 slow down a wee bit & some times have DNS problems? As twice tonight I got DNS error messages

Sorry, can't help you with MSN, have never used it.

I don't have any problems with Firefox with multiple windows open and other app's as well. Only issue I have had like that is with secure sites and that's as it should be. Are you sure you haven't got anything running that's clogging up your machine? Given it a good scan & clean lately?

PF1 seems fine too.

Cheers Murray P

Firefox does that because its sitting in SWAP space, ergo loading from your HDD.

MSN can be cleaned by going into the Control Panel
--> User Accounts
--> Hit the home button up the top-left
--> Click on your Username
--> Click on Manage my Network Passwords up the top-left
--> Delete the one passport/*net (Or something to that effect).


Chill.

That's something a Gore person would say. :p

stu comes from Auckland, according to his details.
kiki doesn't appear to come from anywhere (no details) so why the crack about Gore?
I'm genuinely curious to know whether there's a reason my friends in Gore should be criticised about their computer knowledge.
So do you come from Gore, kiki , and are frustrated by the lack of kindred spirits?
Or was it just a handy name to fling about - from a North Islander, maybe?

I'll be interested in your reply.

Actually i think they should rename the place as Goulash.


Makes perfect sence to me.

Am pretty sure it's related to the rolling r style accent still very prevalent in that area of the SI.

Used to portray the "somewhat interesting" spelling in a humourous light.





N.B. "somewhat interesting" takes the place of some more descriptive terms that are likely to upset some viewers.

This is normal, it's called running out of RAM.

Dunno if it's been slow, but a site doesn't "sometimes have DNS problems" during a session of browsing. When you request "pressf1.pcworld.co.nz" it resolves to an IP address, which your computer caches locally and uses until such time as the record expires or you reboot the machine.

It's probably some poorly worded error messages that aren't directing at the real problem.

Nice wee bit of stirring, lad - but let's leave this to kiki - unless you've really got some evidence.
Stick with telling the kids what crap their gaming stuff is, eh?
As someone who knows nothing about this, I assume you are God.
Tread on my patch & I know you are not..
(And having said this, I expect you'll have an irrepressible answer. That's the fun of PF1)

Fixed - damned grammar.

You assume wrong.

We all know that the only person round here that can lay claim to being God is Billy T.

Been all over NZ,not only visited but had extended stays all over,infact i spent the better part of a decade without returning to Wanganui for more then a weekend at a time,The South Island isn't any more special then anywhere else.(well,its more special then Auckland.......But a farmers red spot sale is more impressive then Auckland,.............HA)

Nice enough if you like the cold i supose.

Are all those down south so touchy?.....or is it just those in Gore and the National Front?

Laura -
Were those remarks really required?

whiskeytangofoxtrot -
Did you really have to knock Billy T?

Metla -
You've not overly provoked anything yet, please play nice and keep it clean


All of you -
Ive got my eye on this thread, please dont make me lock it.

You should have seen the first reply I typed out.

Crackers?Ösomething to be eaten with cheese.

Isnít it amazing how when people assume things they tend to assume wrongly.....

HoHo metla - ain't PF1 great for instant arguments/discussions.
Glad to see I'm talking to a widely-travelled New Zealander who just happens to live in the North Island - as opposed to the many who've never ever been down south..
Sure it's chilly here right now, compared with what you softies are no doubt getting in Wanganui.
Makes us tough & resourceful as we chop the wood to light the fires to get the computers fired up...
No, we're not all touchy in the South. Depends on the mood- and what prompts us..
I don't come from Gore (read my details above) but dealt with Gore people through lotsa floods...so know they have guts.
As for the National Front- you got the wrong place. Reckon you have to talk to the Chrichurch people about that.

Funnist thing i enconted,Being asked by Aucklanders where i was from,When i said Wanganui i would get a blank stare that would normally be followed up with "Wanganui aye?,that south auckland innit?

Laura

Wow - -just seen the Mods telling-off, after I posted my last reply to metla.
So - I grovel if I offended anyone by defending a small South Island town, when I couldn't understand why it was being mentioned unfavourably.

Having said that, I can understand that this might have become a problem thread....maybe..maybe....

So I hope this Mod will follow up by getting in early on those that become personally abusive, as I don't believe this was. It certainly wasn't intended that way - rather as
late-night amusement.
Once again. if I offended anyone, I am sorry.

The way I see it, Kiki's reply was a joke - not to be taken seriously, so I don't quite get why you guys all ran off barking about places all over the country.

Anyhow, Stu, it's been pointed out that this is normal behaviour from Firefox, as it's most likely been shunted out of your memory.

As for PressF1, I suggest you give up bothering to find out if it's really down, or if it's just hinting that something about your combination of software, hardware, and internet connection had a senior moment.

:p

Having been down that way (Herriot actually) it's bloody cold at this time of the year so Kiki may have been referring to the fact that their fingers weren't working on the keyboard properly.

Laura, does it help at all to know that Kiki is a Southlander? That is not as bad as a North Islander making a crack like that, is it. ;-)

Thank You WTF NOT!, But You where a bit slow as my question was all ready answered.

Newsflash: Windows uses the swap file when it runs out of RAM. Hence the actual problem is the fact you are running out of RAM.

I think the word you were looking for is were. Only two of your questions were responded to, not the third - and it is common practice for several responses to the same question.
