ok... i just started using the opera browser out of curiosity, and it was working ok until i started posting here.
unfortunately, opera refused to load the changed pages of the forum, opening the ones in memory instead... thus causing me to think that nothing i was posting was getting through. (this resulted in an accidental double post in the thread below... sorry
anyway, the reload-preferences don't seem to be what i'm looking for to correct this... anyone know offhand what to do?
...in the meantime, i'm going back to netscape.
