    Insta-chat

    Insta-chat is NOT on the Power Surge Web site's server. If it were. during the times it has gone down the whole Power Surge site would go down as well. It is based on what are called tag boards or shout boxes and was adjusted appearance-wise on Power Surge's message board to look more like a small chat room. Power Surge has purchased approximately four different tag boards and they all have the same problem. When insta-chat does go down, there is nothing Power Surge can do about it as we don't have access to the server that it's on. Unfortunately, it has gone down more frequently in the past few months than ever before. If you have trouble using the chat room, check to see that you have java runtime environment on your computer, or just go to http://www.java.com and download a free copy. Once installed, you should have no problems using the chat room. The majority of message boards don't give you the option of having both an insta-chat AND a chat room.

    She might not have validated her email address. That would cause error messages. She can contact us at: http://www.power-surge.com/php/contactUs.php3 and I will try to help her with the problem.

    The Place To Start Your Day #2

    Repost of Della's message from the Introduce Yourself board. Hi Lolly so sorry about Harry. My prayers are with you. I too have a cat . We took her in as a stray kitten and she is now five years old. She is part of the family. Everyone says she is my cat because she sits on my lap for a long period of time and she only lets my husband and kids hold her for a short time before she jumps down. Also if she makes a mess of anykind they all yell Mom Your Cat did what ever and I have to clean it up. And of course I am the only one who knows how to clean the litter box. She knows eat just say the word and she comes running also outsid,she runs to the door so we will take her out to play. We were just sitting and rocking on the front porch and her ears went back and we heard a very loud nois comming over the house. It was four Huge Army Helicopters. WOW what a sight. We have a major port that is shipping several army trucks hummers etc. I bet they were heading over there to get loaded up on the ship. It is leaving out today or early tomorrow is what the local news said yesterday. I wish them Gods speed and a safe journey. Hope you all have a Good Day and Lolly God Bless. Della

  5. PURGING YOUR CACHEBefore reading, you may want to save a copy of this for future reference. Today everyone surfs the Web. When you use the Internet on a regular basis, it is essential that you ?"purge your cache." The cache is composed of ?files that build up on your computer every time you open a Web page. Opening the page downloads into your computer everything that's ON that page including text, javascript, sound files, images, etc. Needless to say, when you're surfing from page to page, many thousands of files can build up a "cache" on your computer. Unless you purge (clean) them out of your machine, it will slow you down your Internet experience. If you've never purged your cache before, but have surfed the Internet, you will be amazed at how many files have been stored on your machine. These are the files that are "dumped" into your Temporary Internet Files. AOL MEMBERS & IE USERS(INTERNET EXPLORER): In AOL 5.0, go to the "My AOL" icon on the top of the AOL screen. Click on PREFERENCES ?Click on the" WWW" icon In AOL 6.0 & ?7.0, go to the AOL menu at the top of the screen and click on: 1) Settings 2) Preferences3) Internet Properties (WWW). In AOL 9.0, click on Settings and Internet Properties. The rest is the same for AOL and Non-AOL members using Microsoft Internet Explorer. If you're using Internet Explorer from your Windows taskbar: - Click on TOOLS and INTERNET OPTIONS. It will default to the GENERAL Tab window. 1) Click on TOOLS > INTERNET OPTIONS. Under the default GENERAL TAB, you'll see BROWING HISTORY. Click on DELETE and delete TEMPORARY INTERNET FILES, HISTORY and COOKIES. I don't keep passwords online, so I don't have to delete those and ignore the FORMS option That's called PURGING YOUR CACHE. It will prevent many problems people incur when their cache is overloaded and will also allow you to surf the Internet faster when the cache is cleaned out. This is a diagnostic you should do at least once every few days if you do a lot of Web surfing (I purge my cache a few times a day). --------------------------------------- TO PURGE YOUR CACHE IN NETSCAPE BROWSER: IN NETSCAPE: click on EDIT and PREFERENCES. Scroll to ADVANCED and double-click on it. Highlight CACHE On the right side of the screen, you'll see two buttons. 1) Clear Memory Cache2) Clear Disk Cache -- Click on each one and you'll get a message about clearing the cache. -- Click "OK" and that will purge your cache in Netscape. TO PURGE YOUR CACHE IN FIREFOX (ver. 1.5.0.9)In FIREFOX, you can purge your cache by clicking on TOOLS on the menu and then CLEAR PRIVATE DATA. Basically to purge your cache, all you'd need to select is Browsing History. Personally, I clean out browsing history and cookies (that's generally where you'll find web tracking spyware. So I prefer not to store cookies on my computer). I'd read the HELP section in Firefox before deleting the other items they have checked. -------------------------------------------- If you want to read more about cookies, visit http://www.cookiecentral.com
