smiley - sorry

I haven't used Pliny for months since I found out that Ripley/Alabaster w*rks more often and better for me

I still have a link to 'my conversations' in Pliny, though, because it was sometimes easier to use. In particular it highlighted all the threads that contained new posts I hadn't seen yet

I hope this makes sense smiley - erm

Brunel has that handy "My Conversations" pop-up that checks for new posts every minute or two.

I never could get the hang of Brunel, Baron, but thanks for letting me know. Maybe I'll give it another try.

Hello, Jackruss! smiley - smiley

Coconut also appears on Nilsson Schmilsson, 1971. One of my favorite albums.

He died in 1994, only 52 years old.

Alabaster doesn't work at all now. I'm learning to like Brunel.

You possibly can't post in Pliny (this is all being worked on), but you can probably read it.

Nope. Even in Brunel, you don't need to sign in to read anything, just to post. Of course navigation might be difficult without a direct link to a Brunel page, but with a bit of URL manipulation it can be managed.


When I was trying to post the Cancel thread the other day, I considered doing just the opposite, pulling up the brunel version and editing it for Pliny, but I couldn't remember the normal format for conversations in Pliny and couldn't quickly find a link directly to the Ask H2G2 forum. That's another thing bad about pliny, no direct links to Ask from the front page. smiley - cross

Ditto on Pliny.

Brunel works for me on a direct link from the favorites bar on the computer.

Allow me to rephrase my post (31, in which I wrote: "I clicked Dmitri's link to thepost and it shows up in Pliny - but I have to sign in. But I can't")

It's true that I don't *have* to sign in to read, but if I try to sign in to post I can't.

Just like ITIWBS I have a direct link from the favorites bar on the computer. Actually I have two: One link to Alabaster (Ripley) and one to Pliny. I *am* signed in to Alabaster and it w*rks okay now, but the link to Pliny simply doesn't w*rk. Until a few weeks ago it did. smiley - shrug
