Monkey, what monkey?...that was me after the makeover...guess it didn't turn out as well as I'd hoped..... ;)

Oh, sorry... "monkey" is just a new slang term! It translates as "a very estimable literary Brahmin, and fashion model". Probably started as an acronym of some sort...

(Funny thing is, when you started using it, it took me a while to realize that it wasn't a morphed image.)

No worries....so, do you think I should get another makeover to go back to my ol' self??


Have you tried holding down the shift key while you click the refresh button? Always works for me. By the way, I also see the Dutch Master ;)



Bingo! That did it, dizzypen!!!!!!!!

Thanks!!!!!!


Now, why didn't I think of that........

and what Dutch Master, that's the result of my new makeover.... ;)

I tried to change my signature last night to add new pens I bought at the Columbus show, and the screen indicated I could have as many lines as I wanted, but when I deleted one and then added one of the new pens, and clicked "save changes," it said my signature was now too long and wouldn't let me change it.

Also, when I typed in the new pen in the same way I'd done the older ones, the http (?) language didn't look the same, so I don't know if it would've added anyway.


So, is this no longer the current list (copied from your signature as I see it), or did it update and say it didn't, as it's been doing for Archimark?

Now I'm curious — can someone tell me what exactly happens when you do this? I've never heard of it before, but am very glad Archimark's problem is solved.

Shift-Refresh forces (most) browsers to reload the complete page from the server, instead of rendering from cached files -- which should have happened when the browser cache was cleared, but sometimes doesn't (and is much easier to do than clearing the cache).

Thanks, Zeissikon. Cool little bit of information to store in my memory tank.
