The scuba diver drove the bus. He is swimming for his life.

And such a relief from controversy.

Yeah, so what's it doing on ...

Never mind! Happy

BTW, how come you never told us about DaVinci's Inquest? Much better than anything on US TV. I get it here at about 1 AM, so I don't see it regularly. I posted to the CBC to see if DVDs are available.

What's going on?
by taboma / September 18, 2006 1:23 PM PDT

Lloyd Bridges. BTW we are talking about sharks that walk. Not DaVinci's Inquest. That is too far fetched to believe!
Doug, wake up earlier to see the DaVinci ending. :

Shame on you!
Remember that skit years ago on Saturday Night Live? LANDSHARK!!
So funny. One of the classics.
I guess you and I are in trouble together.

Diane, why do I have a link to Verizon on this post of yours?

Why did I receive this reading your post and clicking on your blue link post? Are you working for Verizon undercover??
Do you receive a commission?
Come-on, don't be shy!! Please let us know.
Verizon has you and you do not know about this.?
Stranger things have happened before.

OK, everyone, why is this happening with Diana's post??
Links to Verizon! from her post?
WEIRD!! Check it out yourselves. All in BLUE!

Maybe you are locked in frames when viewing CNET forum?

Link to Virizon

In reply to: What link to Verizon?

Could be. It happened with that post.
Hard to explain unless you go back to it and track it yourself.
Go back to Diana's original post.
All text in blue and a link to Virizon. How it happens? Beats me!?
Kind of weird to view. Click on the text and you will see what I mean.

James, I am running Mac OSX. I think a link is a link with any OS!

Looks OK to me

Sometimes there is an ad and a spot to skip this ad. Could this be what you're talking about?

Maybe a Verizon advertisement was served by CNET on the particular page he loaded that we didn't see and he accidentally clk on it and went there.

Diana, tried it out again?
by taboma / September 19, 2006 2:17 PM PDT
In reply to: Diana

?went to your link and did not link to Verizon as the other evening.
That's the good news.

Bad News: Should anyone here on the CNET ever download a file from a link?!
Why would anyone set up a download to a SE link?
Just sounds so weird to me.
CNET is world-wide. Better safe than sorry!

Your thoughts here?

No Verizon

I checked again, this time using Page Source and the only time the word verizon appears anywhere on the page was in a subject line, that's all. You can check it yourself, here's the page source in a document file. Run a search for "verizon", without the quotes in Word, Wordpad, or whatever Mac uses for doc files. I checked the page source from IE and also from Netscape 7.

The only explanation I have for your experience is you were locked in frames or have some spyware/adware/virus interfering.

james offered you a chance to check the source of your phantom Verizon!

if you had understood his post you would have realised that and not have started screaming to the high heavens...

and a suggestion, next time, take a screen shot and post a link, please!

I think what Kevin meant
by TONI H / September 19, 2006 8:55 PM PDT
In reply to: kevin-taboma

was that within James' post, he had a DIRECT link to a FILE called NoVerizon.DOC which makes it an automatic download when he should have posted just a link to the guy's website where the .DOC file is located and let people make their own decision about whether they want to risk downloading. Especially since .doc files are notorious for being carriers of viruses.

doc vs txt
by James Denison / September 20, 2006 3:57 AM PDT

I must have missed a post that's been removed, but I first tried the page source in a txt file, checked it for download and discovered it still opened as a webpage in a couple browsers which "read" the page. So I changed the file ending to ".doc" and it opened up a download box, or opened in Word plugin depending on the browser. I'd even took the html tags out of it, but still the browsers would "read" it and interpret the html coding. I probably should have made an html page and included the source material in a text box inside that page.

Thank you Toni

Exactly what I was talking about.
You happen to be smarter than I am explaining it.
More experience than I do also.
One of my heroes.
Thanks Toni. :

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?
