    GE Ed,

    That happens to be the date that killed my access to Facebook
    oct.12th. I haven't got it working since then.

    I believe the one before that was 1533, but I could be wrong. It
    was 15-something, however. (-:

    I clicked on a Link in this article by Woody Leonhard:

    As I was reading the article in that Link I thought of You
    and Roger talking about Windows 10 when I saw in Step 1
    there was a Link to learn what version of Windows 10
    is being used on a computer.

    I know how to check the version of Windows 10.

    Iirc the article said Cortana was to be used to learn what version of
    WinTen was being used on a pc.
    When I read the article I thought it looked like a quick way to get that
    info.
    But I haven't any plans to start using WinTen so I really don't know
    anything about it by experience.

    I read messages from BBS Users (and others) to learn about what they like
    or don't like about the OS they use.

    I was using Win95/98 until 2006, then I started using XP after reading
    BBS messages from Users giving it a good report.
    Lately all I read about XP is that it isn't a good OS to use anymore.

    Regarding QRZ: I was in there yesterday and found that I couldn't do anything without Java, and the suggestions were to enable Java in
    FireFox, Chrome or Safari.

    I see Mark sent a message about Javascript/JAVA to You.
    Before I Log On QRZ now, I learned that I HAVE TO enable s3.Amazonaws.com
    in NoScript or I will get that error message from QRZ too.

    However, I'm using Opera as my browser. If that had been on the list,
    I may have catched the suggestion to enable Java, but since I'm opposed
    to use Java, I'm glad that it wasn't on the list.

    I have Opera's browser too to use if Firefox quits working or it can't
    get a web page to open.

    So consequently I'll stay out.

    I just tried Opera to log on QRZ, and it worked for me.
    Opera didn't gripe a bit.
    I looked for OH0NC and got the page asking if I wanted to add it to their database, I didn't.

    I looked at my page twice, when I was Logged In and after I Logged Out.

    I found out the second time all it showed was the message I had saying
    what my old Call Signs were, when I clicked the Second Tab, it said I had
    to be Logged On to read what was there.

    The Second Tab is where I see the HamGrid option, that is just below the Map.

    The HamGrid has options to show the QTH of other Hams in the area that is
    being displayed in the HamGrid window and what Grid their QTH is in.

    I guess You will have to Subscribe to put OH0NC in the QRZ Database.

    Hi Mark,

    anything without Java, and the suggestions were to enable Java in
    FireFox, Chrome or Safari.

    java or javascript? they are not the same thing and are not related
    other than by name...

    However, I'm using Opera as my browser. If that had been on the list,

    It was JavaScript.

    even so you can easily look it up...

    https://techhelpkb.com/enable-and-disable-java-in-opera/

    or if you meant javascript instead...

    https://pchelp.ricmedia.com/enable-disable-javascript-opera/

    I checked today, and found in the Opera tools, the settings for both
    Java and Javascript.

    I enabled both and connected to QRZ. It still complained that Javascript
    wasn't enabled. I closed down Opera, restarted it and tried again.

    Same message: Your Javascript isn't enabled ....

    Thanks for the lesson, anyway. I'll try the above URL's next time.


    Have a good day,

    Hej Björn,

    I learned Turbo Pascal and also tried Turbo C. I stuck with Pascal.

    The PASCAL fido echo was where I spent most of my fido time in
    the early 1990s.

    Most of the programs I produced were for the radio amateurs, like log
    programs and contest logs with calculation of the scores.

    When I joined Fido, I had almost left the programming age, with a few exceptions for add-ons to PCBoard. Those use the PPL-language.


    Ha en bra dag,

    GE Ed,

    I know how to check the version of Windows 10.

    Iirc the article said Cortana was to be used to learn what version
    of WinTen was being used on a pc.

    Not at all necessary. The fastest way is to click on Settings>, then the
    System Icon> and on the bottom of the presented column, click on 'About'

    This I learned from Roger.

    I don't use Cortana at all

    I was using Win95/98 until 2006, then I started using XP after
    reading BBS messages from Users giving it a good report.

    I jumped from WFWG 3.11 to XP Pro, without passing any versions between.
    ----- " ----- XP Pro to Win10 Pro, ----------------- " ----------------.

    Lately all I read about XP is that it isn't a good OS to use
    anymore.

    XP is still usable, and I still have it on an old Lenovo laptop.

    I see Mark sent a message about Javascript/JAVA to You.

    Yes, the discussion is going on.

    Before I Log On QRZ now, I learned that I HAVE TO enable
    s3.Amazonaws.com in NoScript or I will get that error message from
    QRZ too.

    Dunno what that is.

    I just tried Opera to log on QRZ, and it worked for me.
    Opera didn't gripe a bit.

    OK.

    I looked for OH0NC and got the page asking if I wanted to add it to
    their database, I didn't.

    Next time you can add my callsign there, since I read that a QRZ-user
    could do that. After that, if I ever try to access QRZ again, I may
    update the information, which you cannot do.

    I guess You will have to Subscribe to put OH0NC in the QRZ Database.

    I have subscribed already, so have I access to the database when/if it
    accepts the Javascript that Opera offers.

    I have forgotten to mention to you, that when looking at the map of time
    zones, in and old english "Radio Reference Handbook", published 1946,
    I stumbled across an "English-German Radio Vocabulary" in it.

    The reason I didn't remember it, was that I got a good dose of german at school, and that I have learned the german radio terms in the education
    to radio- and TV-tecnician, and also from the service manuals.

    Good morning Mark,

    I enabled both and connected to QRZ. It still complained that Javascript wasn't enabled. I closed down Opera, restarted it and tried again.

    are you using a blocker like noscript? if so, tell it to temp allow
    qrz or whatever site it is blocking... hopefully it has a list of
    all domains used on the page...

    As far as I can recall, I haven't seen it mentioned anywhere in any
    settings, and I don't know if AVG or ZoneAlarm do use it.

    i select one at the time and let it reload... i'm very picky about
    the ones i allow through for different sites and i only allow through enough to make the page work properly...

    OK, I'll have to see if "search" can find such a setting.

    I'm also finding that some programs are very selective to Opera.
    Yesterday I let the Adobe Reader upgrade. After having done that, it
    left a message that it could'nt apply it to Opera, but did it on Edge.

    I have never, ever used that browser, it was just included in Windows.
    I chose Opera because I was familiar with it from OS/2, and also because
    it maybe isn't as prone to be attacked as the usual browsers like Edge
    and FireFox may be.

    I may have to let FireFox loose. I do have it installed, and on the
    laptop Gnome was included when I received it.

    Oh well, I have much to learn about Windows 10 since XP :-(


    Have a good day,

    Holger

    they do not... it is a browser addon that you have to specifically install... noscript and adblockpro are the only two browsers addons i use and recommend but they do require some learning for one to get all their sites working properly without ads...
