Is the Advanced Search function no longer working? Sometimes I try to find posts by the name of the poster and this method no longer works. Anyone else find this as a problem?

It works for me. Do you have your cookies disabled? Some of the features on this site don't seem to work properly when you have cookies turned off, so that might be what's happening.

The other thing you can do to find posts by a certain member, is to click on the members name in the member list, then it will give you the option of displaying all posts by that member.

That Amish thing won't work on me, I know a few who can handle a computer better than I can. :P

As far as disabling or enabling your cookie function, most of the computers i have worked with are different so my instuctions might be wrong for you. But it's usually in your computers system setup, then you have to look for something dealing with your security settings and from there you might be able to find out whats up with your cookies.

My foolproof suggestion, however, is to call the 1-800 service number for your compter manufacturer. They can walk you through it while your on the phone with them, and they can gear their instructions to your exact computer model.

Hope this helps a little.

Thanks, but I am still Amish. I wouldn't know how to do the salad bowl thing you have going. It amazes me. I don't have enough spare time to figure these things out or when I learn them by the time I need to use it again, I have forgotten or lost my notes on it.

Don't feel bad, I'm not sure how I did the salad bowl thing either... dumb luck I guess. Re: the Amish comment, I wasn't making fun, I really do know a few who could run computer circles around me :P . But I still recommend calling yor computer manufacturer to figure out the cookie thing. Most computer companies put a sticker on the back side of your hard drive that will have the number listed on it. Or you could do a google search to find the companies technical support number.

Good luck! :D

With much weeping and gnashing of teeth I think I did the cookie thing correctly.

Thanks for your help. Do you live around the Amish? I didn't realize that they got involved in computers....good for them! I guess I can't use the Amish line anymore.....

I don't live around any Amish communities, but when I am not teaching, I am a full time student myself. And there is a small group Amish students who use the computer lab on occasion, but your right, I don't think it's a common thing for the Amish community to be high tech, but I don't really know. I had always thought there were religious rules involved, but these students don't seem to affected by them regarding computers. The only other Amish folks I know are builders and craftsmen, and they sell the most amazing furniture, masterfully crafted and absolutly beautiful.

Anyway, if you figured out the cooike thing, did it help with your search function? Is it working any better now?

I fixed the cookie thing, but I am still overwhelmed by technology.

    • What if it were something else that glutened you?  Maybe you ate too much of a good thing?  I once (three months post dx) ate too much gluten-free fried chicken, vomited, passed out and fractured my back (osteoporosis) in the process.  Paramedics, ER doc and Cardio all thought I was having a heart attack.   No.  It was sheer gluttony and bad bones.  Not good to overload with a damaged gut.    Maybe you did get some contaminated nuts.  Afterall, anything processed is suspect.  What might be well tolerated by some, might be too much for others.  We all have our various levels of gluten intolerance.   The old 20 parts per million is just a guideline, but science does not really know (lack of funding......doe anyone really care enough to find out?)  My hubby has been gluten-free for 15 years.  When I was first diagnosed, I tried to eat the gluten-free foods that I normally gave him.   Problem was he was healed and I was not.  Things like Xanthan Gum in commercial processed gluten-free breads make me feel like I have been glutened, but it is just (and still is) an intolerance.  So no bread for me unless I make it myself using a different gum.   Too lazy, so I do without.   so, ask your doctor if you really want to know or lay off the cashews and test them again in a month using a certified gluten-free nut.  I wish this was easier!    
    • I have intolerances to a few foods now, so I was wondering about that.. I love cashews though, and a month or two ago I was eating them all the time with no problems at all. I mean, could I really have developed an intolerance to them since then? I don't know if they're made on shared lines (it didn't say on the package so I assumed they weren't), but I'll give them a call. I'm really, really sensitive to cross contamination. Even if something is just made in the same facility (but not on shared lines) it will make me sick. If that's not it, then I'm not really sure
    • Research with KP and find a celiac-savvy GI in your area ( read the biographies). and ask your PCP/GP for a referral to that specific GI (not his buddy).  Ask the GI for the rest  of the celiac panel or proceed with an endoscopy/biopsies -- 4 to six.  Keep eating gluten daily until all testing is complete.  Document and request in writing.  Do not worry about symptoms.  There are over 300 of them and some celiacs have none!   Research all that you can about celiac disease.  The University of Chicago has a great celiac website that has testing Information etc.   Poet me know how it works out.  Hope you feel better soon!  
    • I react to both wheat and barley.  I've opted to just go completely gluten free, for the sake of simplicity and my sanity.  I don't have a diagnosis of celiac disease, but I strongly suspect it.  Unfortunately, I'm not willing to endure the misery of staying on gluten long enough to pursue further testing.  I just know I need to avoid the gluten grains, so I do.  
    • I think that we have to remember that celiacs often develop intolerances due to our  damaged guts.  Our guts do not ncessarily heal either (usually adults) for  a variety of reasons even if their symptoms improve (see links below).   Nuts are just plain hard to digest.   I can not tolerate almonds, but can handle walnuts and cashews in small amounts.  I can eat peanuts too, but resort to Peanutbutter after a Glutening as it is easier to digest (maybe I have to learn to chew better!  😀)  My nut symptoms have  nothing to do with gluten as I have purchased certified gluten-free nuts and suffered with the same symptoms.  .   https://www.verywell.com/celiac-disease-when-will-your-small-intestine-recover-562341 http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/treatment/ http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/23936873 i call the manufacturer when I suspect the manufacturer is sharing the line or if I just want to know.  I bought some Black English walnuts and called the company.  Those are the only nuts they process and they do not have any flavored nuts.   if you really want to test your theory out, buy some nuts from Nuts.com (certified gluten-free).   See if you get a reaction or ask your GI to retest your antibodies (which should be done annually anyway).   I just hate to have Planters get a bum rap when you do not really know for sure.......😥
