CNET Error Page...... What Gives?

by AdelaideJohn1967 / March 2, 2006 6:30 AM PST

Every time an article is posted here the forum accepts
the article but goes straight to an error page after
you hit the submit button.

But if you go back into the forum you were using the
new articles you wrote are indeed there.

Is the forum playing up at all?

It is a glitch, and.

.... the CNet engineers are working on it.

Besides all of the CNet forrums, there are many other "departments" on CNet which also need attention.

Here is a work-around that might work for you.

Save the text of your post (just in case!)

When you Submit, assume that it has been when that "cannot be found" page shows up.

Then hit the "Back" button which wll take you to the message you want to submit. At the top of the page, click on Speakeasy (the other option is CNet forums).

This will take you to page #1. Look for the topic to which you are responding. Open it, then look to see if your post is there.

This worked for me today several times.

TPTB want this problem corrected as much as any of us.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
