Oh, Steerpike...

...I'm posting this from a PM in which I tried to help Gelert.  Not knowing what anyone can/can't see, thought you (or anyone else who might have a solution) might be able to see this if I posted.  What an odd situation.

Weird thing is I can see my posts in other threads, including the testing one, and your post after my 'butt' post. [Image Can Not Be Found]

  It's just an issue with page 2 (and 3 if there is one), on that particular thread. Very weird! in the meantime, I sent a message to Steerpike (Matt), yesterday, but he hasn't replied yet. Can you let him know for me as well please? If that will help.

  It's JUST on that thread that I am having problems. I can't even reply to post on page 2, only on page 1. But, as I say, the post doesn't appear for me.

  In the meantime (again!), one last request. Can you copy and paste the post I made - "anyone found any gems lately" - and send it to me please? That way, I can try and start a new thread with it. I'm sure the boss(es), won't mind that as a temporary measure until they fix it for me. Someone said to me it could be something to do with synchronisation. I don't understand that, and how can that be on just the one thread? Baffled? I am! [Image Can Not Be Found]

Apparently Steerpike has already begun to move Tap Repeatedly servers into the silo. I doubt the router can penetrate the 6  ft thick hardened steel doors. Now a nice comfy treehouse on the otherhand...[Image Can Not Be Found]

That might explain it.  If that isn't going to be enough security, I read this article about a new paint that (when used on interior walls) blocks wireless signals.  If we used that, then there would be no wardriving around the silo.  And then where would Gelert be?

Gelert will have to come live in the silo with the rest of us, I suppose. Or maybe we could tap into some secret government line to feed his needs.

Gelert, if you're only having problems with one post, definitely try to start a new one and see what happens. That thread has been acting funny for a while - what with the wide margins; I always attributed them to the photos, but maybe it's something else. Certainly feel free to try that temporary measure and keep reporting on your problems.
