The TAProom is the public meeting place for wide open discussions. Two rules: no obscenities and no personal attacks. Beyond that, jump into a conversation with some of the most vocal, most opinionated, and nicest people you'll ever meet.

The only way I found to reply was to click on the "quote" button. Looks like I may be the first to have even found that method.

Do I need to use a CIS id number so people will know who I am?

No Frank, I think everyone who comes here remembers you.

Not sure I know how this works, but I'm trying.

I'm not sure which message I'm replying to, nor do I know what the title is. So I put in my new user ID. We'll see.

Help!!

You may want to change your display mode in your user options (UserCP at the top left | Edit Options | Thread Display Options | Thread Display Mode) to the hybrid mode and then (a) you'll see a thread tree at the top and messages below and (b) you can click on the quick reply button of any message (to the right of Edit and Quote there's an icon that looks like a quill pen on a sheet of paper) and it will reply to that message. If you choose the threaded mode, you'll see the thread tree and ONE message below. Same thing works for the quick reply.

The subject isn't filled in but instead is the first few words of the message you write, so it's easy for people to glance and see if they want to read more.

I tried at 4:30pm EST and couldn't get into web view of go.compuserve.com/tapcis nor ozwin, so I assume the forums are now permanently closed.

BTW, go.compuserve.com/catholiconline still seemed to be open, but it has only two sections. Maybe it has not been closed because most of the forum is private?

Judy,

Thank you for the thumbnail.

I missed one or two replies to me, that came as notifications to me by email from go.compuserve.com/tapcis *after* the web address stopped working. So at least I got to see the "lights out".

It's been fairly common in the past that the shells have been left up (and accessible) for days after an official close.

Well i've now posted a msg in the old forum dated June by Columbus Ohio time.

* http://go.compuserve.com/tapcis doesn't work

* http://forums.compuserve.com/vlforums/default.asp?SRV=tapcis DOES work

That URL is http://forums.compuserve.com/vlforums/default.asp?SRV=tapcis (for some reason this place puts do...ts in)

* i can't do HMI from this machine, can someone confirm whether GO TAPCIS still works?

Excellent... i like software that refuses to die.

I can't find a way in by web anymore (having to go that way is a symptom of winmodemitis, brought on by the parasite Pseudomodemodulator Ridiculus), but i hear that the defs of the current round eventually got posted in their rightful place, and somebody voted for them.

Dear Wayne,
Hard to find you! <g>

The best I could do looking for the Zankou's garlic sauce recipe is the following: Seems Potato starch is the secret to the recipe, but it does not explain how to use the potato starch, nor the quantity. My apologies to all if this is the inappropriate location for a recipe.

Zankou Garlic Sauce - Almost

6 cloves garlic
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup olive oil
1 juice of 1 lemon
potatoes, mashed potato flakes or potato starch

Grind garlic to paste in mortar or small food processor.

Work in salt, olive oil and lemon to create mayonnaise-like consistency.

Probably best to use a food processor

Hi there!

The TAProom is the public meeting place for wide open discussions. Two rules: no obscenities and no personal attacks. Beyond that, jump into a conversation with some of the most vocal, most opinionated, and nicest people you'll ever meet.

Well, I followed Sydney's last email and found my way here! Really hoping that I will find some of the wonderful people I met and worked with over on the FSFORUM and GAMERS forums on CIS all those years ago!

Nice to find you all - as my addiction to flying the 747-400 shows no sign of decreasing, I look forward to some nice colourful talking here.

Nice to be here and thank you for setting this up. A donation will be forthcoming.

kind regards,

Judy, as you know it was just a short time ago that I returned to this forum--is it possible for members to read the members list to see who is in the forum. I clicked on it and was told I wasn't authorized to see who was a member. Why would that be? Regards, Len

Judy G. Russell
December 1st, 2005, 09:48 AM
It's possible for members, yes, but not for registered users, and some folks (ahem...) have never asked to be members (which carries with it use of a couple of private sections for people who occasionally want to discuss things they'd rather Google didn't pick up). Since you're a regular, I'll go ahead and flip the switch for you. Anyone else (and you can invite others to participate here if you want) need to post in the Requests for Access section.

Judy, thanks, I tried clicking on members and it worked! BTW what are those private sections--do they have a name? Also is there anyplace you can click to see if a new message was directed to you or do you just have to look at all the threads to see that? Regards, Len

Lindsey

You'll see them listed in the "*For Members Only" portion of the page you see when you first log in. Basically, they correspond to the old Sections 8 and 9 from the original TAPCIS forum.

Also is there anyplace you can click to see if a new message was directed to you or do you just have to look at all the threads to see that? Regards, Len
No, there's no quick way to find messages that are replies to your own on the board itself. You can receive notifications of new posts in a thread by subscribing to it, but that will notify you by e-mail of any new posts in the thread, not just of those that are replies to messages you have posted.

You can subscribe to a thread by choosing one of the notification options besides "Do not subscribe" of "No email notification" in the "Additional Options" box below the "Reply to Thread" window (see attached screen shot), or you can set your profile's options to automatically set a particular subscription option for any thread you post in if you click on the "User CP" link at the top of one of the screens here, click on the "Edit options" link under "Settings & Options" and choosing the desired Default Subscription Mode under "Messaging & Notification".

Yes, I agree; it seems odd to me that it's not something that is included in most message board systems.

Lindsey, wonder if there's anyway of getting Search to find that info for you. I have noticed that there are times when the Compuserve Advanced Search can be quite helpful--at other times you don't get results--very sporadic in my opinion. Regards, Len

The Search here, you mean? No; there's no way to search for messages addressed TO a particular ID, because the messages aren't actually addressed to an ID. They're just linked as a response to a particular message, which is not quite the same thing.

Lindsey, yes, that's what I meant--thanks for that info. BTW I've been looking at the various threads themselves. Some messages in the thread--most as a matter of fact--have a light blue square in front of them--a few have a yellow square in front of them--what's the significance of the color if there is one?

Click on Andy's name in the message and select the option to send email. That will let you send an email to the address Andy used to register here back in 2005. If it still works and Andy answers, then you'll find out what the email address is. Other than that the email address in the forum registration database is private and I suspect that Judy would not release it without Andy's permission.
