Not possible to open thread.

by Terry Browne / August 13, 2006 11:29 PM PDT

I am aware of the fact that there was a lot of "heat" in the thread that I started here. But I wonder why it is impossible to open it since there is no "lock" on it and it is not deleted...

Please let me know either here or through email.

Thank you.

Armed only with that, next time tell a bit more or check your links.

It doesn't open! I copied the link to the thread and it does not work.

At the second page of Speakeasy there is a thread called Fidel Castro turns 80 and is doing fine.

I can't do more than that since it won't open.

Seems to be a glitch...

It's doing the same thing for me under multiple usernames. I was able to post a reply, which bumped it to the top, indicating it's still there, but I still cannot read any of the posts, including my own. Hopefully the engineers will be able to look into it.

Is it possible to know what kind of progress has been made if any? And if not, why?

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?
