So, I'm really happy Nonsuch Ned set up this forum. He didn't have to do that and it's probably a pain to keep it going and everything. That's why he, (or anyone else), has the right to stone me for being at all troublesome, like I am about to be right now.
Here's what I want to know: Why do I have to log in publicly every time? Can't a gal lurk anymore? I am trying to maintain the illusion that I have a life, and that is difficult to do if people can see how often I'm here.
Secondly, how come I can't see which threads other people are viewing? Maybe the threads they're looking at are better than the ones I'm fiddling around with. Maybe I'm naturally nosy curious about the habits of others. Whatever the reason, I'd like to know what y'all are up to.
I don't have a third complaint right now, but that could change. I'm getting grumpier as I get older.
Longy.... go to your profile, click on that then edit profile, then click on privacy and set so you are invisible when you are doing your so-called lurking. I've had mine set like that for years. I was told when I first signed up the point of being seen "publicly" was so others online could PM chat with you if they knew you were around. So, I did that. No one PM'd me and I figured I was missing out on something like being in the cool kids club. So I set it to invisible. No point being public, I figured.
That's your one issue solved right there.
I'd like to know how you tell if someone has picked up a PM? From what I can tell, you just can't?
Next ungrateful bitch... start da bitchin'
* I will now be expecting a PM from each and every one of you within the next 24 hours*
On APE I was the only person that hated that pop up window on the main forum page if you signed in and had a PM. I used to check my e-mail on purpose to see if there was a PM every time I logged in because if I didn't and that window popped up, I just about jumped out of my skin .... it actually startled me. Jumpy, yikes.
Pretending I'm a pleasant person all day is exhausting
Always sniffing around for a scrap, aren't you don? Well, there wasn't one! I only saw it briefly, but I think peggs thought I was being serious when I talked about trying to maintain the illusion that I have a life and she was questioning the idea of lurking for that purpose. Or something like that, right?
Anyway, I wasn't at all offended by the comment, peggs. In reality, I gave up trying to convince myself and anyone else that I have a life long, long ago. Perhaps one day I will also give up making bad jokes in my posts, (but that may take some time.)
And thanks for the advice, Suzi. I have always depended on the kindness of friends and strangers on all technical matters, both large and small.

bluedemon25: No ones going to comment on the new Colin song/music video out? I liked it. I know it's not about puns, body parts, or sports, but I thought it'd get excited mention from someone.
