Computer Problem

Hey Dudes and Dudettes,
I'm not having a problem with S2000 thread but cannot sign onto my AOL mail. Is anyone else having this problem since AOL has downloaded their new homepage? They have completely removed my password.

I heard they were going to shut AOL down. It has turned in to a real albatross for Time Warner.

AOL no longer is a part of Time Warner. It is now a stand-alone, ad supported web portal. They are trying to emulate Yahoo.

Are you unable to log in because you dont remember your password? are you using AOL's software or going through aol.com?

I have been trying for years to get people to stop emailing me on AOL. I was highly offended when they destroyed Netscape. And I will no longer use there fetid mail service, whether I can log on or not.

Netscape lives! It's called Firefox.

I meant Netscape mail. The only browser I use is Firefox.

Chaz: Open Internet Explorer (or if you have Firefox or some other browser use that) and go directly to aol.com. Log in there and get to your new email in the IE (or other) browser.

I don't use AOL, but I have had to help people work around it when updates blow up the AOL browser.


EDIT: Of course, rereading your original post I realize I may have completely misinterpreted your question, Chaz. Sorry if what I just said ends up being totally useless to you.

Thanks for the input, but I think AOL is on the way out along with Yahoo. My friend just had problems loging into Yahoo mail. I hope to stay connected with S2000.com

Same people as Netscape and Firefox and a very good stand alone. One less thing tied to Microcrap.

i'm a big chrome fan. been using it since the alpha release. firefox is nice, but you have to watch the add ons, you can bloat the heck out of it. for a while, the flash rendering in firefox was better than chrome, but chrome updated under the hood and they are level.

sorry for being off topic.

hahaha. haven't played much with Flock. Opera is nice, but it has passed its heyday. It was a front runner for me for a while, then the development of fox, chrome, and even IE surpassed what Opera offered.

I am indeed a browser *****. And how.

It's funny, when Chrome first came out into Beta, part of the EULA stated that anything posted on the web through the Opera Browser was the intellectual property of Google. Weird. It has since been removed, but it truly highlights the Goog's goals of world domination.

Congrats on the new notebook. Be sure to put a firewall and virus filter on it. I find the free ones work better than the paid variety. There are a lot of nasty bugs floating around. Avoid Norton and McAfee. They are bloatware. My son spends a lot of time cleaning up computers that have became infected with all sorts of malware. Let me know if you want recomemdations for freeware.
