Proxy posting

There’s a couple of guys on uk.comp.sys.mac who seem to have me quoted in their sigs. This is mildly disturbing since it’s vaguely traditional to quote people who are dead, which I aitn’t.

Now, one of these chaps has recently posted a reply in a thread reading simply ‘see sig.’ I’m not sure if that means I’ve contributed, or not.

Either way, I suspect a discussion of software agents is just around the corner.

  1. Hello,
    I am having trouble with my Internet explorer.It is doing some very odd things.Sometimes it will completely close the page i am visiting for no reason or it will be very slow loading pages and when i say slow i mean very very very slow for eg i tried to google something and after 10 minutes of the page trying to load i gave up.I thought that it was perhaps the topic i was searching so i tried putting in random things to see if that made any difference but it didn’t.Another problem i had was when i was on a forum and clicked on a link and nothing happened i tried to open a new tab and that wouldn’t work either and it would let me access any options that are in my tools menu.i had to restart my computer.Just to let you know i have high speed Internet connection.Thanks in advance to anyone that helps me with this problem.


  2. Er… I suspect you might find a more responsive audience elsewhere. In part because, frankly, not many people read insignificant blog entries from four years ago.
    But for what it’s worth (and assuming you’re on Windows) it sounds like your PC might have picked up something nasty. I’d make sure it’s properly up-to-date, and give it the once-over with recent antiviral stuff. Then download and use Firefox instead.
    Or just nuke the whole thing and install Ubuntu.
