Based on what you are describing, I think your browser is automatically clearing cookies. Either because of incognito mode or because of privacy settings. So every time you return, the forum has no way of knowing you are you. And so you see the default sections for guest visitors until you explicitly log in.

I am not sure what was going on. I had never had to log in before, then it all changed. I was having similar issues with youtube, where it made me log in before adding a comment, or even hitting 'like' to a video. Something definitely changed. I don't *think* that windows had been upgraded, although it isn't always obvious with win10. I cleared my browsing history - actually couldn't find the option to clear cookies, but I figured that it would be included. Rebooted the PC - something I rarely do - and behaviour was back to normal, both here and with youtube. I do get the messages listed in a different way to before, but I get my subscribed sections and it doesn't force me to login.

Thanks to everyone for the suggestions!

I got one of these too... Thing is, I don't have a flickr account and never had have!

Kind of a pain, as you may have to re-enter passwords and user names for all of your web page visits, but if you start your browser up, then go to tools, and then Privacy/Security. Delete your cookies, and clear your history. Next time you log in, it should either ask you if you want to remember the password/user name, or just automatically remember it. Hopefully that fixes your problem, but no guarantees! Good luck!

This seems to have done the trick... Don't know what in my web history would have that effect, but something was. Just cleared that, rebooted, and Robert is your father's brother! Passwords aren't a problem, as I use Roboform to store and apply those.

Thanks for all the suggestions!

I don't know what is going on, but things seem to be all screwed up here... My digest doesn't contain most of the sections I subscribe to, but does contain a bunch (like the gallery) which I don't want. I checked my profile, and that is all as it was before. The site is making me log in every time I want to reply to a message, which I never had to before... I can't access the digest online once logged in...

Anyone know what is up?

I have done quite a few videos with my Canon DSLRs (see my profile below). They all have a limit on time/file size, which they need to avoid paying more duty on import as a 'video camera'. However, the limit is much more than you are getting... It's been a while, but if I remember right the time limit is 20 minutes, after which it shuts off. They also have a size limit of (I think) 4GB, but if they are not at the time limit, they will close the current file and immediately continue shooting to a new file.

I admit the details are a bit fuzzy, as it has been a year or two, but the limit is way above what you are getting. I assume that there is some menu setting causing the issue, but I cannot make a suggestion as to what it is...

I normally shoot 640x480, but this is more to keep the final output to a reasonable size that for any recording purpose. I shoot multi-camera events in church, and need to keep the final edit small enough to distribute.

In English (and American) grammar books it defines twelve tenses.
However, there is a thirteenth that you must all be aware of, it's called the 'future indefinite'.

Very simple to demonstrate.

Darling, how much longer will you be?
Five minutes. <- here
You said that ten minutes ago!

The Welsh also have a 'magic future' tense... Where most of us would say "I'll be there in a minute...", The Welsh say "I'll be there now..."!

Well, it works for me on my Dell Precision M4800 64 bit system, and my wifes HP 64bit laptop.
On our computers, we get a message (on restart) that Windows is closing all programs. Then the option to continue, or not.
The only way Im aware of, that those programs can open on start up, is if you have them loaded in your start up menu.
That would do it.

I don't have any browsers in my start up. Even if I *had*, though, I have never known any version of windows open a browser with tabs remembered from before a shut-down. This one has done it since new...

Just a suggestion for the future.
If you have a problem with 'anything' not working properly, a usual final suggestion is to shutdown ones computer and restart it.
This may not help with the latest version of Windows 10 as to assist a faster startup, Windows saves a lot of the settings when you use the 'shutdown' option.
I read somewhere, the best option now is to do a 'Restart'.
The 'Restart' option doesnt save anything so you get a clean start up.

Actually, I am not sure that this is correct. Whenever (and *however*) I restart my PC, it comes up with IE open, and reopens all the windows which were there before shutting down. The annoying thing is that it will restart any youtube videos in all those windows... This always happen if I do a restart, but we had thunder rolling through as I was getting ready for bed, so the machine was shut down and left off overnight. Switched it on this morning and headed to the bathroom, then came back out to a cacophony of voices from the system!

The only time I can remember it *not* doing this, is when the restart includes installing updates, I think. Given that windows is storing at least this amount of info during its off/on cycle, I am not sure just *how* you can be sure to get a clean start... Oh, this is w10 pro 64-bit, for reference.

That was incredibly helpful. I am sure the OP appreciates it.


Perhaps, but I have to admit it was my first thought too! I wouldn't have actually posted it, but it did seem a little strange. I understand the possible reasoning suggested by some of the other posts, but on the face of it, it *did* seem like a strange situation.

I had a friend one time who was raving about some 'designer' shoes that she had found at an outlet for a steal of a price. Then, right at the end, she said "It's a shame that they are 3 sizes too small for me..."

The answer is in the video title - it's a flight simulator video, not a real aircraft!

Put a small piece of transparent tape on each icon before you shut down. They won't move again.

If you use black masking tape instead, you can enjoy many fun hours playing "find the folder"! Sorry to the OP, but I know nothing about macs. I have had that issue on my new win10 machine, though. This used to be a big problem with windows back around win95, I remember. There was a freeware program avail which would 'save' a copy of your desktop for easy 1-key restoring. Not seen anything of that for a long time, though.

The pedestrian light on the corner beeps when it's safe to cross the street.
I was crossing with an 'intellectually challenged' co-worker of mine.
She asked if I knew what the beeper was for.
I explained that it signals blind people when the light is red.
Appalled, she responded, 'what on earth are blind people doing driving?!'
She is a government employee.....

There is a freeway rest stop in western MD, which is called (or used to be...) the "William Donald Schaffer Rest area for the Blind". Schaffer was a past state governor. The interesting thing is, the whole thing is located *between* the eastern and western carriageways, so it is impossible to reach if you are not in a vehicle... I always thought this was a strange concept.

Like putting braille instructions on an ATM machine... My mother was blind, and I explained that she could withdraw money herself at the machine outside our local bank. Apart from not knowing what an ATM was at that time, her response was "how could I find the machine...?"

Sometimes people do things for PC reasons, without thinking the matter through!

I recently bought a new PC. When getting it set up, I found that I couldn't enter the BIOS - the instructions, such as they were, said to hit either DEL or F2, but neither of these worked. It just booted up as normal... After some time struggling with this, I remembered that I had stopped using a particular backup program because of a problem like this in the past. Then, I remembered that somewhere back around then, I had bought a new mechanical keyboard, rather than the membrane ones which don't last 5 minutes. I dug out an old keyboard and swapped them over, and BINGO, F2 worked!

I just include this in case anyone else has the same issue. I have copied the instructions given here into my (permanent) clipboard database, however!
