    your computer there should be names like File,Edit,View, etc. Click on view and then click on refresh. Depending on how your computer is setup, there is an icon with arrows going both ways that is also a refresh button.

    By the way, where abouts in Minnesota are you from. When I was a kid we went there every summer for vacation. I loved it.[This Message was Edited on 10/19/2002]

    that's about 1 hr. south east of me. I answered your ? under your post about divorce about this board- check it out- and to refersh the board-on internet explorer, on the top bar, second line you will have a line that has-back-forward, stop, refresh, that is the one you click on to get updated board. Idon't use netscape so can't tell ya- maybe click on view then refresh?

    Peace & Love Jan

    Hi Vamp,
    I am also technologically challenged. On this board, I see the "Notify of Response" button only when I post a new topic. If you are using Netscape, in the upper left hand corner of your screen, you should see a button that says "Reload". If you left click one time on that, it updates your screen. On Internet Explorer, it will say "Refresh". Hope you get it figured out. It is possible that your computer is set up to hide this portion of your screen. If this is the case, call your internet providor and ask the tech help folks to walk you through changing the settings so it shows up as a band across the very top of your screen. They are used to dealing with novices and are usually very willing to help.

    Vamp,

    I live in Minnesota as well, I didn't know there were so many board participants in MN. Anyway, what king of computer do you have? PC or Macintosh and what Operating System (Windows 95, 98, 2000 or XP, or Macintosh OS-9 or OS-10)?

    There could be any number of reasons for your problems so some basic information would be helpful in beginning to trouble-shoot the problems. I am primarily a Macintosh user, but I can get around PC's pretty well too. If you think that I can help, e-mail me at fifty1ford@aol.com

    Peace,
    Ford J.
