No, I like my anonimity. I worry that someone I know may recognise me, bring up all my posts and see what I said on my off days! ohmy.gif
If I've thought it... it's a fact!

If you're talking about the main chatroom at http://www.power-surge.com/chat.htm there are usually people there on Thursday nights starting about 8:3- PM eastern or so. You can arrange with others to meet in there at any time.

To use the chatroom, just type in the little text entry line and hit your Enter bar on your keyboard, or the send button in the room. Yout text will show up in the room.

The process for the InstaChat is the same. You'll get the hang of it right away smile.gif

If you don't want anything personal known about yourself, you have complete control over that. You don't have to create a profile.

Unfortunately, this message board along with every other message board on the Internet is considered, "Public Domain." What with the various search engines, such as Google going through this message board and indexing messages and information for their search engine, it's entirely possible that anything you post "publicly" can pop up in one of the search engines.

I've always made it a point not to get too personal in any of my messages with the knowledge that this information is not entirely private.

My suggestion would be to select a username that won't be identified with you. Never, under any circumstances, should you use your real name as your username. Also, never post your real name, address, phone number, E.mail address OR anything that's very personal that you'd prefer keeping private. Remember, too, that despite Power Surge's Privacy Statement, I can't promise that if you post your E.mail address, that some marketing people who sign up for the board, or anyone looking to harvest E.mail addresses for their mailing lists - can't grab your E.mail address if you've posted it or opted to make it public and bombard you with E.mail. They won't get it from Power Surge. I don't give away or sell any information about Power Surge's members. That's also why the default on these boards is to keep members E.mail addresses private. You have control over that.

I don't see anything wrong with posting messages about what you're feeling -- even if it's on the intimate forums, such as Sexuality and Libido. However, you have nothing to be concerned about if your username isn't easily identifiable. I would also avoid using the same username if you post on various sites' message boards.

Years ago, even before there was Windows, I belonged to various local Bulletin Boards. The Internet was different then - it was almost a sacred, private place. Today, thins are different. We have very little privacy.

So, I recommend that if you don't want something *known* about you, don't post it on any public message board. That doesn't mean that you have to become paranoid about sharing your feelings and thoughts. However, a little discretion is always the wisest way to go.

Hi Cathy and Mommy,
Looks like instant chat is not working, it's not you. Cathy, I/M stands for Instant Messenger.

Yup, insta-chat was down for a bit today. Happens every now and then. Insta-chat isn't on the Power Surge Web site's server. I intentionally arranged it that way because chats of any nature, insta-chat or regular chat rooms, are persnickety, so this way the whole board and site isn't affected by the insta-chat's moods (must be going through menopause).

Dearest

P.S. Cathy, I owe you a PM - thanks for the heads up on that post. Much appreciated as are you biggrin.gif

I didn't offer any help because I don't know why others can see the InstaChat and you can't. For me to offer any suggestions on that would be just guesses on my part.

You can always contact us at: http://www.power-sur.../contactUs.php3 and see if there are any answers there but it seems like an issue with your computer and the InstaChat software.

You all saved my sanity a couple of years ago when my cholesterol skyrocketed and my "not so smart" Doctors never mentioned that it might be menopause that was causing it. After reading so many other gals stories about losing weight, getting fit and still have cholesterol go crazy, I didn't feel alone anymore. So.... I took herbals, went on a low salt, low fat, low sugar diet and l got my cholesterol down.

I was sailing along being quite healthy...accept for the pain in my chest when I would lift heavy buckets to feed my horses. For FOUR years my cardiologist would pat me on the head and tell me I was "Just fine". I got a blood pressure cuff. It got to the point that I would barely make it to my recliner from the barn. I slapped the cuff on and it wouldn't even register for about 10 minutes (not a good sign) when it did, ...it was 196 over 129. Then I knew I was neither crazy or a whiner.

I went back to the doctor and when he gave me the same ole BS I went ballistic. I knew I wasn't "just fine". In fact I was pretty sure I was dying. It was escalating so quickly it scared the hell out of me...I wasn't sure if I could make it even a few more weeks. The weird part about it is that within 30 minutes, if I sat quietly, the BP would come down and that horrid pain and breathlessness would go away. All the doctor would see is me being fine....he never listened to what I was telling him.

This time I threw a hissy fit. I KNEW I wasn't "just fine" and I wasn't going to let him get away with patting me on the head and sending me home....I knew I would die if I let him do that to me. He got pissy and said that the only thing left was a angiogram (like I wouldn't want to do it!) I said DO IT! ALL off the other tests were negative. Guess what ladies? Those tests don't mean diddly squat.

He came around the curtain after my angiogram and I said " I TOLD you!" (the angiogram showed two two inch long blockages on the backside of my heart) He said " I'm so sorry, You just fell through the cracks". I told him that its a damned good thing I've got a big ass or I would have fallen all the way through!

So here's the problem. I got a little rebellious after my surgery and ate whatever I felt like for four months (being good hadn't kept me from having open heart surgery!) Anyway now my cholesterol is up to 265 and my herbals aren't working. They want to put me on cholesterol drugs that I am totally against but I don't know what else to do. My cholesterol is not herditary as far as I know, I have several aunts in their ninties and my mother didn't take cholesterol drugs and died when she was 84.

Since the cholesterol went up when I went through menopause, could some kind of herbal hormone replacement help? Anybody out there have any experience with this? Hopefully any good experiences?

HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Kip

PS I"m going back on the low salt/low sugar/low fat diet tomorrow Oh yeah..my energy level is higher than it's been in over six years....amazing what getting and adequate amount of oxygen will do!!

Sorry I hijacked this post I didn't know how to start a new one!

Better watch out, Angel, or the little men in white coats will come dragging you off smile.gif

I know the insta-chat is down. It's on another server, not Power Surge's, so I have no control of this when it happens. Last week, when I put up the temporary insta=chat (the one with the blue border), that went down also before 24 hours. These are very persnickety and unreliable scripts and I'm trying to think of something different to use. I also have to deal with Bijay now having the flu, so I'm doing the best I can on my own.

Remember, WE HAVE A CHAT ROOM! Click on "Live Chat" on the menu up top. You can talk in there as well.
