      The https: does do something for you, it will encrypt your password when you log in. It will stop other things.

       

      If you bypassed the test for the certificate, now that it is back, I suggest you cancel that exception.

      Who would have guessed you could have so much fun by merely interfacing this cast of characters with occasionally sketchy technology.

      Computer technology is always sketchy in my world. I work with a lot of IT folks who don't completely understand computer technology.

      I don't like technology, because it doesn't work as advertised. But, if it did work as advertised, I would have to get  a real job.

       

       

       

      Edit for an error in the spell check technology.

         Bob, as you know I disable adblocker plus on our site here to help out in any way I can....however, I notice that since I got a machine with windows ten on it, I don't see "Google Ads" and if it helps out I'd rather see them, useless though they are.

       

         Does anyone know what might be happening?

       

       edit: to be clear, I see both titles "Ads by Google" but there's nothing but blank space underneath.  And, oddly, I   DO  see the ads at the top of the pages for like Train Engineer and all.

       

      I missed this post in the noise.

      Its possible that something installed in the browser is blocking google ads.  For example, I run AdBlock Pro in my browser, and unless I whitelist a site, I wont see the ads, just a blank space.

      Showing the ads really doesnt provide much in the way of income (fractions of a cent per).  Its when you find something of interest and go to a site from one of the ads and poke around.

      And I do from time time to time Bob. Just so you get a few more cents in the coffers.

      It is not Bob running a tight ship about the password... it's sending your password in the clear over the Internet if you logged in under http: as opposed to https: .... I'm surprised you made this misunderstanding... it could be intercepted BEFORE it ever got to Bob...

       

      I won't even go there about using the same passwords....

      With ad blocking having been mentioned here, I will say that I know ads bring revenue, that, yes, I block those ads without having contributed any revenue to this site myself, and that for health reasons involving autism and a few other things, I have to, yes, have to, run ad blockers, script blockers, and especially GIF blockers, or the web would be unusable to me.

      TV and movies are unusable to me and I have no TV set in my home; fortunately there is calmer, less intense, and shorter, material on YouTube for if I want to watch someone doing something.

      For example, I couldn't watch an NFL game on TV but could watch a UK canal boat video on YouTube. Unless the narrator talks too fast or the music is too fast and too full of too many sounds.

      Related is that I do not use and in some cases have removed the sound system in my several Bachmann 4-6-0 Big Hauler or Annie locos.

      There was one where I covered the tender floor speaker grille with cardstock to see what that did.

       

      Though this seems rather tangential, it will shed some light on those other health reasons I mentioned at beginning of this post,

         Wow. That's amazing Forrest...thanks for the enlightenment. If it's any consolation, I'd rather watch and English canal boat over a football game any day!

      Welcome. In 1986 or so Dad was one of US Navy's first, no, actually I think he was the literal first, medical retirement with CFS/ME and fibromyalgia, plus neuropathy and a couple other things, after several years of high powered military doctors in Virginia trying to figure out what was happening to this guy.

      About 10 years after that, MS, multiple sclerosis, finally put his little sister (16 years younger than he is) out of her nursing career.

      About 10 years after that, CFS/ME, fibromyalgia, plus neuropathy and a couple other things, finally put me out of my retail career.

      Something is happening in this genetic line.

      (and Grandma Wood kept saying that since she didn't feel anything she couldn't possibly have neuropathy like the doctor said)

      (and contrary to stereotype, it's not Dad who has autism/asperger's, after meeting my senior citizen parents a few years ago my psychologist says it is Mom who is the Aspie)

      (and I'd wager 2 of her 3 sisters are too, and that both her 2 brothers are not)

      Greg....Tom has asked you a question that you have left "Unanswered" ?

       

       

      Perhaps you can find the time to answer the man between the many contradictory statements.

       

       

      Honestly LSC was just fine operating as HTTP in my opinion considering the confusion the "S"..... "You Personally" pushed for has created more problems for those that want to share a hobby not code or security.

      I copyrighted my password so nobody else can use it!

      There is no misunderstanding.  My point is, if you care about the password you are sending to this site that much, I would advise you to review your password habits.  Cert or not.

           Me too. When I have a couple of minutes to spare and it looks like it might be something interesting, I'll click around a little. That's why I was wondering why I get blank spaces now under Ads by Google.

      Careful John. I clicked an add for something I was interested in, and for the next month or so most of the adds I saw were for women's underwear.

      Are you complaining or bragging?

      Seems my ads content rotate faster than that, unless I click on them and then they stick around longer ...

       

      I'm being blessed with UGEARS wooden locos, want a link?

      badgering ignored, since you want to be a pain, will reply to tom... trying to explain why https is a good idea to you is counterproductive, all you want to do is fight... you are ignored...
