Logout Problem

In the past day or two I've had logout problems: I log in, post something, go to click on the logout option but the only choice I'm presented with is 'Login', even though my name is showing as being online.

I close the page and check back a few minutes later and my name is still showing at the bottom as being logged in (and the top of the page is still asking if I want to LOGIN!) So I then have to log in so that I can immediately log out again!

Am I insane?

It's possibly because you are actually seeing the cached page in your computer memory, rather than the actual page on Charlie's server.

A cached page makes the viewing of a web page quicker, because it doesn't have to reload all the images etc, unless it's sure something has changed.

Often? you can force a reload of the page by clicking on the browser refresh icon a few times, although it sometimes doesn't want to play ball.

Is there a screw loose around here?

Thanks Gordon.

Okay. Lately I've been having a problem with my kitchen tap: it feels very tight when I turn it off or on. Do you think it could be the gasket? Someone told me the other day that my 'big ends are chanking'. It may have been a compliment, I'm not very sure. But could this be relevant?

If it's a conventional tap valve with spindle and washer, then it's probably the internal 'O' ring gunked up or perished or deformed. Remedy - get a plumber to fit a new valve, or take the chance to get a new kitchen tap fitted. Stripping the valve and cleaning and lubricating will probably get it working well again, but only for a limited period.

If the tap has ceramic disc type valves I was going to say it could be some scale - but of course you don't have that up in Scotland do you ?. Alternatively maybe some gubbins has got in (is your hot water gravity fed from a cistern in roof space to a cylinder ?). A plumber may be able to clean it and refettle it, but again maybe it's the time to fit a new and better tap. Check the prices in a Screwfix catalogue if you want to see some 'value' options (and not get ripped off).

i second the o ring idea. Many problems have been solved in this household by simply replacing the O ring. May work for you, may not. Next question

Funky gubbins

Er, probably.

I confess I don't know what the hell a 'gubbins' is, but it won't matter now because I've decided to send for a plumber instead of fiddling with anything myself!

Thanks though. To you both.
