    Obviously, I wasn't born in 1993, but Power Surge was! I created Power Surge in 1993 on AOL and it was formally introduced as an AOL community for women in Feb. 1994. My interests include writing, antiques, computers, the Internet, Web design, new technology. Politics (The West Wing was my all-time favorite show), music, especially jazz. Eclectic tastes. I'm concerned about the protection of our environment and natural resources. My passion -- Power Surge! Used to travel a great deal. Love artsy jewelry, sterling, turtle necks, art and good films. Fascinated with everything Native American/American Southwestern.

  1. We got it fixed. To the right of "Read New Content" on the menu, I noticed a symbol (kind of like a pear-shaped diamond). I suggested template click on that symbol - and on the next screen, to be sure to click on "Communities," and there's another link to read new content. That one worked for her. Dearest
  2. If you need any information about how the Power Surge Message board works, you will find answers in the HELP AREA linked below: http://www.power-surge.com/php/forums/index.php?app=core&module=help Best, Dearest
  3. The bottom line is that the message board had a major power surge some time between 3 AM Saturday morning and now, 3 AM Sunday morning. The problem has been resolved. The board has been restored with a backed up file from 24 hours ago. Therefore, if you managed to post any messages during the past 24 hours, they won't show up in this restored back-up. Please feel free to post your messages again, and please be patient. As you all should know by this juncture/transition of your life, many things don't run as we would have them. I'm going to get some much needed sleep. Best, Dearest
  4. I'm anxiously awaiting a response from the invision Board people. The blog should be showing up soon. Please be patient, This has been a particularly complex upgrade and is not going to happen overnight. Thanks for your patience, MommaJo. Dearest
  5. A new topic for navigating the Power Surge board will be created. Much of the current information in this forum was written for the previous version of the board. The board has many new changes. We are still in the process of setting up the features. Your patience and cooperation are appreciated. Thank you. Dearest
  6. wifeisdepressed, It is not your browser that caused the problem with the "Report" button not showing. It was simply not there! For some reason, still unbeknownst to me, the Invision Board people did not set up the default configuration with many features everyone would want - and that included the "report" button. However, as you can see that problem has been remedied - as will the rest of them. Part of the problem, too, was that the previous version of the board (in many incarnations) had a myriad of links to make everything so much easier for everyone. This newest version is the most convoluted and complex of any I've ever seen, but in the end, it will be easy to navigate. We're getting there. It simply requires everyone's cooperation and patience. Thanks, Dearest
  7. The Power Surge Message Board has been upgraded - although the work isn't complete. I, personally, have been awake for approximately 40 hours. For those who don't know, Bijay is Power Surge's senior engineer. He does the "stuff" I can't. He's worked for Power Surge for years and is a good, honorable and reliable friend. However, India is 9 1/2 hours ahead of Eastern time in the states. I was up to meet him at 1 A.M. to begin the task of downloading an upgraded Invision Power message board. The board has been overrun by spammers and has needed an upgrade for some time. Unfortunately, I was focused on trying to get my home back together after a fire that destroyed everything in my house 2 1/2 years ago. It's okay, say it, it's always something! In any event, the board requires additional work - to be sure! However, it was late in India, so I told Bijay as we'd been at it for many hours, and that we could work more on it tomorrow. To add to my dilemma, today and tomorrow is Rosh Hashona - the Jewish New Year - for those of you who don't know. I wouldn't ordinarily be doing this on the highest of Jewish holidays of the year, but it has to be done. Bijay thought we might keep the board down until tomorrow and until we make all the changes and corrections I want appearance-wise. However, I figured better to have an aesthetically "not-so-perfect" board than to have none at all for another day. So, do the best you can working around whatever hasn't been completed. They'll probably be mostly cosmetic, but we're aware of what was on the board before and what I want to remain on the board without having to search your brains out for them However, one never knows what you may see that may slip my mind, so if you have a suggestion for something that's missing, feel free to post a reply as to what it is. All best, Dearest
