Illing Computer

While tinkering with adding and then removing *.sitemeter.com from Internet Explorer Restricted Sites, I appear to have inadvertantly added Charlie's SOTW site to Restricted Sites. (Result being I have to keep logging in to view each page, and no add-ons like YouTube embeds will show).

'Ok', you say, 'why not remove it from Restricted Sites ?'

Well that's the problem : I've scanned the list of many hundreds of Restricted Sites through the tiny viewing window, many times now (and it takes a long time), and www.charliegillett.com, doesn't appear to be there.
If I try to add it to Safe Sites the message comes up that I can't because it is a Restricted Site !

WTF !

(I'm now using Firefox, but I don't like the Bookmark system and it has problems with logging onto other forums, so it's not a good solution)

help ! Where's Gordy Moore when you need him - can I get a Witness !

What does "illing" mean? Did you ever resolve this problem? And where is Gordon Moore?

1. Well it's urban slang meaning behaving in a wild, crazy or outrageous way - so it can be a term of praise - but I was using it to mean behaving in an ill way, 2. no - just started using Firefox instead, 3. Gordon's in a JW safehouse (joke).

thanks for the interest (was going to reply to your Erkan Ogur post, & started looking thru some Youtube clips but although soulful the music's a bit too doleful for me today, but Anadolu Besik (Anatolia: the Cradle) is a good 'un)

A couple of months ago, BT offered a much cheaper annual subscription for my business telephone line if I agreed to commit for two years. Since I haven't changed over the past twenty or more years, that was no hardship. As a result I was sent a new wi-fi router hub to replace my Belkin which had worked fine for a couple of years.

Every day for a month, my broadband has either failed to deliver any web connection at all, or has dropped out in the middle of the day. I have spent many hours on the telephone to the BT helpline, and although they have not solved the problem I must say they have been very conscientious, chasing things down and calling me back. So this is a double-edged message, grumbling about a replacement that is worse than the satisfactory thing it replaced, while congratulating BT on having a big team of willing helpline people.

I hope I'm not posting too early, but it seems forumista Kevin has fixed my problem with IE & this site being restricted. Lucky this post got resurrected, and big big thanks to Kevin
