    Again, thanks Ashraf! A million thanks! You are brilliant!

    Hi Ashraf, and thanks for your help (as always). I tried it with java disabled and no luck. I’ll email you now with the details. Thanks again!

  • Ashraf

    I don’t see why a JavaScript blocker would prevent you from registering properly.

    To make sure my registration system wasn’t broken I just tried to register and it works fine.

    Three things to do now:
    1) Clear you cookies and cache and try.
    2) If #1 doesn’t work, go ahead and try to disable JS Blocker and register.
    3) If #2 doesn’t work can you email me and tell me the exact URL you are being sent to and the error you get.
    4) After #3 I will delete your account and you can try to register again.
    5) If all fails I will manually register you.

    Apologies for the inconvenience. I am trying to get you registered and diagnosis the problem all in one.

    Nope, still not happening. When I click on the confirmation link, your home page comes up. Any ideas why this is happening? Could it have anything to do with my java script blocker (Firefox add-on)?

  • Ozzie

    Ok, I’ll give it another try.

  • Ashraf

    It shows you as unverified. Can you please try again? Also, I believe Falco’s account is working fine now.

  • Ozzie

    Congrats from me as well, Ashraf! Alas, I too have the same problem as Falco. I’ve registered and been sent the confirmation link and have clicked on it, but each time I try and log in I get a “ERROR: Invalid username” message. Any suggestions?

    Congrats Ashraf! You are “movin’ on up” as they used to say on The Jefferson’s

  • Ashraf

    I am afraid I don’t understand. Are you saying you hate it when a website is opened in a new tab?

  • Ashraf


    I looked up your username and it seems that you did not verify it. Please check your email for a verification link. Then you will be able to login.

    Hi Ashraf,
    One of my pet hates is –
    I click on a link in an email, to go to the senders web site.
    It pops up a ‘Please log in’ message.
    I type password and click log in, AND –
    It throws you (me) into my flippin profile, instead of the web page that was associated with the email topic (Geez I hate that).
    If I had to list what pee’s me off the most on the web, I think that is at the top of the list.
    And I could be wrong, but your new site is even worse than the others, because –
    Normally I mutter, and leave myself logged in (in one Tab), and then I return to the email and click the link. ‘It’ then realizes that I am already logged in, and throws me to the desired web page (in a new Tab).
    I could be wrong, but I don’t think yours even does that.

    Grumpy old man,
