Talking Read those Posts!

I must be the only one who occasionally forgets to follow up my posts and those of others on the Forum site. Losing Internet connection and even having PC hardware problems may bug some of us.

Just before Christmas 2017 I found a post of mine was the tip printed in Issue 400. That was posted in June 2016. I even missed a PM!.

So, my New Year Resolution is to keep a closer eye on my posts and on my PM message box!

Maybe some of you should do the same?

Why???? I'm not interested in PMs.

The hanging does seem to have stopped for now.

Hi Tom. As far as I'm concerned it's a 100% improvement.

Have a look at my latest post on the Breast Cancer Site.

Mike.

Thanks Mike - I decided to ask Reena as she hasn't been on the forum for a while, but I've noticed since, Robert has brought everyone up to date with the fix.

"The hanging does seem to have stopped for now."

...and the rope marks are healing nicely.

It'll be interesting to see if Reena replies. again

Just asking but how do people keep track of their postings?

Do we all have a PM message box? If so where is it?

You will see a notification top right when you receive a PM but click on Private Messages to see your message boxes and when you want to send a PM.

You’re very welcome Nik. Going by the ‘Join Date’ of Dec 2004, Reena doesn’t appear to be a frequent poster!
