  • Old question - new location

    A couple days ago I tried posting this in the section I thought it belonged, but no one from the admin side picked up on it. Sooooo, I thought I'd try posting it here to see if I can get an answer . . .
    * * * * *
    One question about the functionality of the message board. I rely on the "new posts" icon to let me know which threads have changed since the last time I logged on. If I sign-on and go through them all there's no problem. However, if I don't finishing looking at all the new posts before signing off (or if I'm unceremoniously dumped off by an uncooperative dial-up connection), when I log back on all the "new" posts have flipped over to "old" and I've lost the pointers to the threads I haven't yet read. Any solution to this (that I can control)?

    And before someone asks, no I can't just go by the time stamps. My understanding is that the times are corrected to my time zone, but I have seen time stamps on posts that are in the future (relative to my current time)!

    Please advise.

    Bruce:

    And add to your comment, the blue bar across the bottom that has
    "Contact Us - .... Archive - Top" wouldn't it be nice if the there was also a link to New Posts added? Then I wouldn't have to click on 'Top' and then click on New Posts on the top blue bar.

      Sorry Bruce,
      I was waiting to see what Rob could do before posting...I don't have a solution to your problem!

        I've asked for a New Posts link at the bottom of the page several times to no avail. I now hit the HOME key on the keyboard and then click on New Posts.
        As for Bruce's problem, I don't seem to have that problem, if I leave posts unread, they still show as new posts when I go back. The one difference is, I never log off. When I leave the message board, I just close the screen, that way when I come back, I don't need to log in and everything is pretty much the way I left it.

            And Bob, what did Rob come up with? I really get lost in here sometimes trying to search for things that I posted to. I know there is an easier way but we all know me and my computer knowledge (or lack thereof). You think this is bad, you should see me with a cell phone in my hand!! I'm a genius at this compared to cell phones!!

              That is the one store I physically get sick as soon as I walk in. The odor of rubber is overwhelming and I’m good for 3 minutes before I have to leave. Sure glad other stores aren’t like that. Hmmm maybe my bank balance would be higher if they were.

              I wonder if their effort to offer better quality products may have something to do with it. Seems like they want to market themselves as something more than just a cheap tool supplier. Maybe reducing the number of things eligible for the big discount coupons is part of a campaign to change their image....

              Reply to Question about tilting head saws
              by Bill Wilson
              I've owned both tilting table and tilting head saws. My current saw is an EX-21 (pre-Chinese made version) with the tilting head. I have to say that for beveled cuts, I much prefer the EX over my previous tilting table saws (Craftsman and Dewalt). I think a lot of it is the rack & pinion angle...

              Just a random annoyance . . . . Anyone get frustrated by the Harbor Freight ads that say no exclusions, then you see the details and see "for items under $20", or worse yet, in super small print, "Can not be used for: Atlas, Bauer, Central Machinery, CoverPro, Hercules, Predator, compressors,...
