  • I also had problems voting. The first several times I tried, the page just froze once I tried to submit my vote. I tried it later and it worked. Seemed a bit flakey though...after I voted it went to a resutls page for a split second, then back to the voting page, which was frozen. So I don't know if my vote was counted or not. I guess I could try it again. Jay

  • The third step in "Install". I find that if I Update Attributes, Remember File Locations, when I come back later it hasn't remembered that stuff unless I also run Install. Then all is fine.

  • I just wanted to send out a note of thanks to Jim Beshires for helping me on the phone last Sunday with some Otter problems I was having. As it turns out, Otter was working fine but the User's Guide misses some steps in terms of telling Otter how to remember series you've worked on. I now know you have to do thre things for this to stick: Update Attribues, Remember File Locations...

  • Jim, Thast's nice of you to offer but unfortunately I don't have that capability. I do have free nationwide long distance from both my home and cell phones though, so if you wanted to email me a phone number we could arrange a time and I would be glad to call you. I am generally home by about 5 PM weekdays and also most of the time on weekends. If that works for you you can email...

  • John, Yes, I have fallen victim in the past to not checking that Otter was recognizing the correct series but that is not the problem this time. As far as verions of the database, I just re-joined the grup about two weeks ago and I donwloaded the version recommended in the group's instrtuctoins (Defender), so that should be the right one, no? It' s odd. All my series (I have...

  • I am a former member/collector who has returned after about a two year absence. Previously I had collected quite a bit of great OTR and used Otter with no problems. Now I have a new pc and as a returning member am startng all over and I'm having problems getting Otter to recognize series it used to have no problems with. I downloaded the latest version recommended (Defender version...

  • One good thing in general is to run the new version of Spybot (version 1.3 just came out), and Lavasoft Adaware. You can find them from Google. These pesky annoyances can wreak all kinds of general windows problems and should be the first thing to try when your system starts acting strangely. Removing spyware and adware can greatly enhance system performance because these files use...

  • I just posted this question in another group by mistake so I'm reposting it here. Wouldn't it be possible to do a complete Otter update in one file? It seems hard to keep up with all the individual updates. Since Otter comes with one big database when you first install it, it must be possible to install one file that would update the whole thing? That would be a tremendous asset...

  • I'll go back and try it again. It seems odd, though, because I did rename the files after I matched them, so it should now know what they are because they are correctly titled. I'll have to check to be sure the renaming worked properly. Usually it does, but a few times I went back into the folder and the names still seemed inconsistent. I'll check it out!
