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.

    • Yes please, that'd be awesome Having a fun time trying to reply on my phone due to broken screen but will be back on tomorrow after results of doctor appointment to get to the bottom of why they've given me seemingly wrong advice re: next steps. Yup I'll admit to pity, anger, frustration and outright fear, been through the mill of emotions in this first week that's for sure. One thing before I go for that; back when I was self-diagnosing I wanted a full thyroid panel (T3, T4 etc.) and also ESR & CRP checks for vasculitis and similar maladies. Now it seems from my reading they can often follow celiac so my worry level of those has gone up a notch, more blood tests ahoy it seems? Main reason for worrying about those is the nearly constant tight / tender head I have at the moment. Top and sides of scalp. Could be the stress tensing the shoulders and occipital muscles at back of head but after the celiac diagnosis being missed I'm fearful of anything else being missed. Did anyone else have this tight head feeling at the start? Feels like the skin is being pulled inwards, sometimes goes down for a few minutes here and there and gets worse when sitting I think. I see the term "brain fog" a lot but luckily don't seem to have too much of that at present, this is more a physical sensation.
    • I don't have a lot of faith in the allergy testing naturalpaths do. I had them done, but really it wasn't very helpful. Foods that were okay on the blood work- I was still having obvious reactions to. Skin testing through an allergist didn't show up food allergies either. I agree the food elimination diet is a better way to go and doesn't cost a bunch of money. I did a whole 30 diet a while back that could have been helpful if the foods I reacted to were corn, dairy,  soy, grains and sugar- but I react to more than that.  I do need to do a major elimination diet- just haven't gotten up the willpower yet.   
    • Quick search gave too many responses to TGI Fridays but none to TGI Fridays Buns (or similar) so... I was talking with my sister-in-law (Gluten Intolerant) and she spoke highly of a pre-packaged bun from Fridays. I was hesitant but she gave me one (apparently you can buy them from the restaurant?) and I tried it. Since I'm slow to react I won't know about gluten for a bit but I can definitely say it is the closest to "real" I've had in years! Spongy, doesn't crumble while eating a sandwich and tastes good. Color me impressed! I tried to determine the manufacturer or if Fridays actually makes them but I can't locate anything worth pursuing. Anyone have information on this? Thanks in advance.
    • Thanks cyclinglady! I will!
    • You could ask the allergist to give you a starting point for an elimination diet. You would start out with 5 or so foods and then add in one new food a week to see if you react. If you react you of course drop that food. It is a bit of a pain as everything has to be basically single ingredient to start.  My allergist felt that was the best way to go and more accurate than blood testing.
