Just WHERE is the MacFixit archives?

by Cowicide / October 8, 2009 4:04 AM PDT

I tried here: and it just goes slow as hell and the links redirect to here.

Did cnet trash the forum archives??? And, if now... WhereTF can you search through them now?

Seriously, did cnet trash them?! If you did, you can count me as another EX-MacFixit user. The fact it's such a cumbersome process to even find them at all is lame anyway... There should be some mention of it on the Forums button bar on the left or at least in the f----in FAQ.

Sheesh... this is stupid.

I have no problem accessing them using FF3

And it loaded up pretty quick for me.

To see the discussion threads for instance here in this forum:

Go to the Display Options section and set the Show Topics
drop down to "from all dates" and click the "Change" button. This will display all discussion threads in that particular forum.

For search in the MFIF archives, look for the word "Search" on the bar to the left of the FAQ link.

Hope this helps.

I will put up a link up for the MFIF archives and MFI blog in the next couple of days.

Do you use an ad blocker? If yes, that could be it because another way to access the archives fast was to enable ad blocking (and flush the cache in Terminal).

I wonder what it is, cause I don't have any problems....
by Lee Koo (ADMIN) CNET staff/forum admin / October 12, 2009 2:18 AM PDT

loading the forum threads or directory pages...
Is this a Safari issue? As I have no load issues with Firefox or IE.

Peter and all, can you tell me what pages give you long load times?

How's it going?

They added 2008 to my name.

What has it been 8 or 10 years?

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?
