    Curious

    Hey guys, whats the latest on returning the Lounge to it's original state? Or is that not gonna happen? If not, no problem, I was just curious because I haven't heard anything about the progress of this situation and it has been awhile. Anyway thanks in advance for what ever the answer might be.

    Re: Curious

    It's been ages since I managed to log on and spend some time here. I've done my back out almost two months ago now; every now and then I can't even get out of bed. Today is a very good day, I'm even sitting in a soft chair without pain.

    The lounge will get back to its original stage which of course includes the search function. It just takes time, an asset I'm very short of at the moment.
    I've got a huge backlog to deal with whenever I can.

    One of those backlogs was to put a revenue-raising feature into the lounge. The ads at the bottom left hand corner are fed by google, hopefully this will give us a bit of an income.
    Cheers, Claude.

    Hi Claude

    I hope you have a quick and complete recovery from your back problems.

    Re the ads.........I was just wondering how Google had managed to Hijack my browser (Firebird) when I read your post.
    Maybe a "News Flash" might help waylay Loungers concerns?

    Have a Great day!!!

    Just curious as well, <img src=/S/doh.gif border=0 alt=doh width=15 height=15>
    Do you get a revenue stream from each click-through, or only when someone buys from one of the links.

    <img src=/S/ouch.gif border=0 alt=ouch width=15 height=15> Two months!!

    You have my complete sympathy, I have a recurring problem, a legacy of an enjoyable youth, that takes me out for the occasional day or two, but two months!! I can only imagine...

    Best wishes for a full recovery!

    At the bottom-left of IE6 in the Lounge I just get a "sheet of paper" and a blue "i" on it with "Action Canceled" next to it. But I do have Popups being Blocked by Google Toolbar 2.0. I wonder whether these two matters are connected? (*)

    Does the Lounge software now insert any "spyware" files/cookies that would be found by (say) Ad-aware or Spybot S&D, by the way? I know that the "WIndows and .Net" board does...

    I hope your back improves hugely -- some people are greatly helped by osteopaths or chiropractors (UK names, your back specialist names may differ!). I know I was!

    (*) a couple of hours later - the adverts are displaying correctly, now!

    Re: Curious

    The revenue stream is from the click-throughs. What happens at the other end isn't affecting us.
    Cheers, Claude.

    Re: Curious

    Probably the same cause here <img src=/S/laugh.gif border=0 alt=laugh width=15 height=15> Actually, it started a few years ago: I was vacuuming the carpet and had to sneeze. The position I was in at the time, half crouched over as I was cleaning under a low chair must have aided it. In any case, I couldn't get up, it took me nearly an hour to crawl my way into bed and I finally had the doctor come here to with some heavy sedatives which relaxed the mussels. Ever now and again, I get a recurrence <img src=/S/sad.gif border=0 alt=sad width=15 height=15>
    Cheers, Claude.

    Re: Curious

    Two Motorcyle Accidents { One at age 17 and one at 44} know how ya feel. I hurt my back and reinjured my knee in a bad Motorcycle Accident, the second one, 3 years ago. Took awhile to get to where I could handle the pain, but every once in awhile I still have bad days and have to take Hydrocodone and Muscle Relaxers, mostly if I have to drive for to long on a trip in my truck working outta town, that really gets me and hurts to high heaven.
    Man you must of really had to sneeze. Ouch.

    Re: Curious

    A <img src=/S/doctor.gif border=0 alt=doctor width=25 height=33> made a house call? Geez, how do you rate? Seriously, sorry to hear about your back and hope that things get better. I don't mind the google ads except the one about pregnancy weight gain ad - like how did they know? <img src=/S/flee.gif border=0 alt=flee width=25 height=25>

    Re: Curious

    Doctors in Oz still do make house calls once in a while.

    The last time i had to ask a doctor to do that, he left the house with a few bottles of my best wine- any doctor who can be bothered to drop social life for what may be a serious situation is a credit to his profession, and I'm quite glad to offer something to encourage him to keep doing so.

    We don't have things like 24 hour clinics in my part of Canberra.

    I've been in the situation Claude has been in- and getting to the doc was complete agony.
