    • This particular gambit works fine, and you can watch the indicator in the FireFox tab to see when it finishes loading, so swapping between forums is easy and basically I am not waiting on the page loading.

    • Multitasking, doing multiple things at the same time, and none of them particularly well. At least, that's what happens with me.

    • I went back and to be fair, it does sometimes take a while for a page to load, and it is slower than other forums.

       

      I hope you find it Bob. What I do is read two forums at a time, read a post, then click for the next unread, and then jump to the other forum I have queued up, which is in the UK so it has had a chance to queue up.

       

      I've been doing this for a while and forgot I was doing it.

    • I have not noticed any changes in performance.

    • Time to load is slow? Hmm... not seeing that here, but I am running 6 core I7.... perhaps the trackers are doing it, or the ads. I have killed them and plenty happy with the forum.

    • AH, but I thought this was a leisure time activity.

    • I've been slowly resetting options back to their defaults trying to get a bit more speed (and life) out of the forum.  It takes an inordinate amount of time to load, and making it as boilerplate as possible should speed things up.

    • Ole BD  sneaking thing in there when we are not looking to see if we notice!

    • Just noticed a couple of days ago, topics with 100 posts or greater are in red, the little icon of 2 pieces of paper:

       

      vs.

       

      wonder if there are any other changes...

    • perhaps he uses the same password in multiple places, and has to change it for that reason, compromised somewhere else.

       

      Not to say this is Tac's situation, but being the computer-savvy guy in my family, I am constantly surprised at how few and how simple and how long my family has used the same password, as well as using the same password for a newspaper site and for their bank login.

       

      The days of using the same password are long gone, and once again, thanks to Bob that we have https: protecting our passwords during login here.

    • Bob, it was not an email, it was a header on the log-in page of this site.  It has gone now that I've changed my password.  It could not be copied, something I tried to do so that Ii could post it here for you to see.  It advised me that my password had likely to have been hacked/and compromised via an application or an attempt to log on that had failed.

       

      I'll be changing it again in a minute to something else.

    • Who/what told you to change your password here?  If you got an email that looks like its either from me, or the site, please forward it to me, because 'that aint right'

    • January 10, 2020 6:21 PM EST
    •    Don't change your password. That way if you post something you later regret, you can always claim someone hacked your password.

    • Hi John;

      Of course we are dangerous!  You should know by now that model trains are habit-forming.  Plus, most model railroaders are crazy; they get possessed by their loco-motives!

      Keep having fun, David Meashey

    • Very top of this page>Settings> change passwords.

    • I've been advised to change my site access password.  I've been here so long now I can't recall how i set it up in the fust place.

       

      Anybody help me out here, please?

       

      TIA

    • And you can increase the contrasts/sharpness on a pdf, which is sometimes needed when you get a crappy scan (we have to scan stuff for our club and some people never look at the contrast settings).

    • Irfanview even has a plug in to open PDFs, then you can re-save the image to other image formats.

    • I've recommended IrFanView for at least 10 years, lets you change size in pixels and size in bytes. Free, comes in both 32 and 64 bit, and has plugins for almost every graphic type.
