Re: [evonline2002_webheads] Re: problems with geocities
- Thank you, Mike, and all those who have given me feedback on how your
computer performs with Geocities. However, I was expecting a little more
from my online friends, namely, hints on how to try and solve my problem.
I tend to think that it's some problem with my computer, because my
husband's computer, right next to mine, opens any Geocities page very
quickly. So, what I did earlier this morning was to delete all my cookies
and see how Geocities performs. I'll let you know. BTW, my first impression
(and hope it's a lasting one!) is that it's quicker.
Request: May I ask you all NOT to refer to or use Aiden's page for anything
yet. I mentioned to it, because it came up in a message, but I've been asked
not to give it any use for now. I only used Aiden's "fabulously looking
page" as a timely example of my computer's "very bad" performance (snail's
pace) in accessing ANY Geocities page. My apologies for my inappropriate

accomplishment I shared Aiden's url with the group a bit over
effusively as it now appears. As someone pointed out to me, she
signed up for the EVO_2004 group thinking it was the online training
being offered January to March. If you have done that this might
have created a minor perterbation in a very small teapot, tilting
ever so slightly the ordinary balance of things. As I was in part
responsible I might now take it upon myself to ask that -if you have
ACCIDENTALLY subscribed to the moderator training group- you send an
unsubscription notice to EVO_2004firstname.lastname@example.org . It's
really no big deal either way and you would probably contribute to
the moderator training, but technically members of that group are
moderators of the upcoming sessions and designated trainers, so just
to set things back on perfectly even keel, and only if you joined by
mistake, you might attend to this request.
We are all volunteers and everyone in this group is appreciated. We
all suffer from information overload and no one will complain if you
don't take any action as a result of this email. And I hope that
this mail will resolve rather than add to any confusion.
If you wish further clarification you might contact me off list.
