Help offered you might not yet know you need

Kathleen Atkins

Lounge member Protopia recently analyzed the difficulties he’d experienced with DNS lookup errors as he browsed the Web.

And then he set out his findings and solutions in an admirably clear step-by-step procedure in the General Windows forum. Other Lounge members have been thanking Protopia for the offering. You might, too.

The following links are this week’s most interesting Lounge threads, including several new questions for which you might have answers:
