    Question Windows Secrets Lounge URL is windowssecrets.com/forums/

    I do not remember when I bookmarked this site, but the URL I have been using until a couple of days ago was: "http:\\lounge.windowssecret.com/". For the last two days I have been attempting to access the Lounge to read replies to my posts, but could not. I went to the last Newsletter and clicked on my "preferences page" link. The URL is now "windowssecrets.com/forums/", which I changed in my bookmark. Selecting the bookmark now brings me to the Lounge. When did all this change? Or, have I been just lucky getting to this site previously using the old stored URL?

    Hammondmike, the URL changed recently, and took me by surprise as well.

    It did??? My link has been the same for quite some time, hmmm. That is very strange. I must be getting old and did not realize something changed.

    It took me by surprise as well. If it still works for anyone it may be that your local DNS cache is still viable. As soon as the DNS cache expires you'll need to change the link.

    Hmmm, mine already was Windowssecrets.com/forums. Have no idea when it changed. Boy that must have been a significant "Senior Moment"!

    That's not a senior moment. Here's my monument to decrepitude....

    My bookmark, mossy and moldy with age, went to www.wopr.com. They dropped the whole domain. Took some googling to find the place again.
