OT Popups on board

Ugggh, this is the site that keeps running popups, but they can't even open. You have to allow popups to see PMs in a new window, but ORC takes advantage of this and has popup ads.
I know they need advertising $ to keep afloat, but popups are like the used car salesman who increases the volume of the TV ad late at night, annoying enough to change the channel.

Just turn popups off. I just look at the upper right hand corner. It tells you how many unread PMs you have. Just get into the habbit of looking up there.

I just hit cancel and let it come up in the current window.

Dale says we have to adapt but if anybody takes a vote, Ill vote to abandon this failed experiment. With the new software, the search function is almost worthless. You cant search for words less than 4 characters and its full word search only. Before, if I wanted to search for posts about a T-176, I just entered 176. Now, it wont let me do that and if someone put in T 176 with a space, I cant find it at all even if I put T 176 in quotes, it comes back 1. Sorry - no matches. Please try some different terms. Does the same for T-176 or "176".

Html is turned off too, I couldnt use subscripts or superscripts in the discussion about V<sub>RMS</sub>.

I think its all there, its just that the person or persons who set up the new software picked some strange options.

There are 10 kinds of people in the world.
Those who understand binary and those who don't.

Yes, I know how to turn off popups, thanks, yes I am using Firefox, thanks.

Just a PITA for the PM.

Search works fine for me.

Gee, I just noticed there are no more popups, even if I allow them here. Interesting

My browser keeps track of how many popups it blocks...
That's always nice to know.
Usually between 20 & 40 per visit...
I think ORC is over doing it by a large margin.
