Now I see the post I was refering to as a single question! I wasn't finished, but booted out at that point.

I'm sorry, but it is very unclear what the aim of this post is.

What is exactly what you were talking about? Without at least a link to some other thread, this doesn't seem to explain anything to anyone else.

So you had some question about fans (presumably as in computer air moving devices, rather than anything else, such as 'fanbois'). Are you trying to get an answer to that question, whatever it actually was, or get a solution to the problem of being booted out (if so, was it a problem with your computer, or a problem with the forum? And, if the latter, if you are trying to suggest a way of curing the problem, this thread should be in 'Suggestions' rather than 'Hardware').

Or are you saying that this thread is all that is left of your question? If that is the case, while it is always regrettable when something like this happens, what has happened, has happened. If you want an actual answer to your question about fans, you'll have to make it clear what the question is in order to get an answer.

Particularly if this was once a much longer thread, try to remember the motto 'save early and often'. Connections to the internet are not always 100% reliable, and you have to cope with that. By previewing your post you can save 'checkpoints' as you write (either with cut 'n paste, or by going back in your browser), or you can write offline in a text editor and thus cope with poor connections.

This is the effect of some weird LQ bug, maybe. The original thread about "Measuring a case fun" is http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...se-fan-872014/. Discussion about fans continues there.

@Lola Kews: I'm going to move this thread to LQ Suggestions & Feedback, so that Jeremy can take a look and try to dig into the problem. Please, add a detailed description of what happened here in order to give Jeremy more items to work with. In any case, sorry for the inconvenience!

Lola Kews, I'm not sure what you mean by "the moderator evodently doesn't like my remarks and bombed me out" or "I was booted out of the forum", but if you want to give a detailed explanation of what actually happened, we're happy to see if there is some kind of bug installed.

Lola that is why I asked for specifics. No moderator would boot you out without providing information to the the situation. It has to be a system error or loss somewhere.

You are certain that the error(s) were not from your end?

Please provide as much detail as possible so this can be resolved. Lose of session or reply window?

I have on occasion had local issues with my system or even LAN would cause a drop out thus loosing a reply window. I will use a editor then cut&paste whenever necessary to insure completed exchanges.

HTH!
