sorry to confuse everyone again
but some of my recent computer problems were tracked down to A) LJ (yep, it's their problem regarding the script) and B) Gmail. As a result, I had to dispose of my gmail account, which means my email address of alyjude55-at-gmail-dot-com is no longer good. If you've written me at that email, please go back to my cox address (it's on my user page under 'Contact'). 

BTW: Regarding TS chat on Saturdays - I did join the group so at least while I can't chat, I can join the discussion. Thanks Jen for thinking of creating a matching group to go with the chat! :)

I don't think that gmail can cause problems to a pc. It's a web based programm loading only a web page, unless you download it on an e-mail program and even then it should not be a problem.

Can I ask what kind of problems you had? And which browser you are using? I've been using gmail for the past *counts* 6 years? And I never had a problem with it that could affect my computer.

I have mozilla firefox

Maybe I should try it again? Especially since I haven't received ANY emails through incredimail, not even from LJ. I'm glad I decided to check to see if LJ was still keeping my recent 'decorating' intact or I'd never have known I had any comments! I went back over to 'notifications' and nothing had changed there - it's still set to email any comments - and yet....

Grrrr. I'm getting very frustrated. Maybe it's my computer. :(

Re: I have mozilla firefox

Okay let's take this one step at a time:

1. What kind of windows do you have? If windows 7 you might want to give up on Firefox, they don't like each other (I use Chrome Beta) and of course I would never tell anyone to use Explorer! *shudders*
2. The LJ bar disappearing act, is it possible you messed something about when you tricked your new layout?
3. In the message settings for LJ make sure the correct boxes are ticked! Yes, again. They like to switch on their own, the damn things!

It sounds very annoying, but sometimes things happen in LJ that I can't explain, like the 2 days I was unable to even access the site! Everybody could see LJ except me.

What browser are you using? I can't imagine that Gmail would do anything to your computer -- it's one of the best/easiest email programs out there. I can see the LJ thing -- although I find that odd too, to be honest.

I hope it's all fixed now and that you're back up and running....

No, the LJ thing is still happening

and of course, no response from them. Now, even though my notification section still shows that all comments should come to my email - they aren't. It's getting maddening (did I spell that right?).

Did you get the email I sent Tuesday night????

Everyone is saying that

and I just don't get it. I can only assume this is all tied in with either LJ (which still isn't fixed on my end) or my computer. :(
