This is in reply to your kind offer of a supply of locks at wholesale from your brother- in -law.

Though it goes without saying that I would personally prefer that your brother-in-law had SE's lock business, all purchasing is done through the corporate office. Thus I assume he would have to submit a bid to the purchasing department.

Thank you for thinking of SE amd our lock needs. Happy

No, he meant locks. He has one of the best

.... and most clever sense of humors here, and that post was another example.

Much the pity that it drew the responses it did in such quantity, which prompted me to answer him in a separate thread.

If this one attracts the same sort of traffic, I will use one of the corporate locks. Happy

I may have finally figures out something about the Forum software. Note: It could be a matter of how I've set up my browser.
I started reading a thread that was unlocked. I went up and down thread, not reading the last one yet, and it remained unlocked. Once I read that last post, which happened to be from a Moderator, the locks appeared all through the thread. But that Moderator post was put into the thread hours before.
Could it be that with my setup, the act of reading that post triggered the locks on the rest of the posts? If so, it could explain some people appearing to post after the lock, which is not common at all, but sometimes happens. Someone with the same setup glitch wouldn't see the locks, and might reply to a post, before they had read the triggering post.
Just something I finally noticed.

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?
