    Thanks RFB!

    Just had to pass this on... I am such a fan of for backing up my computer (I'm not working with them in any way). I've have 2 computers signed up with them for the past few years, that contain massive files from owning an ad agency, and now food blogging.

    For some strange reason I couldn't access a file online today and they were there, and helped me download it within minutes. I saw on their home page that they have a 10% off special going, and it's just around $60 for the entire year. It's the best investment I've ever made... can't imagine losing files, photos, videos, etc. And occasionally they have even better specials or promo codes. I went for years without backing up (I know!!!) and it's just not worth it.

    Yup, learned that one :) I couldn't figure out for a minute what happened, thinking it was my search engine freezing up or something (that happens a lot with firefox since I usually have a gazillion windows open at the same time).

    wolfpacky - thanks for the heads up!

    I am not sure if the 8 pk 20 fl oz bottle of Gatorade will still be on sale 2 for $9 next week but if so there are tons of hanging coupons on them in the store! They are for a $1 off 2 which makes them 2 for $7 which is a good deal on these. My kids go through the G2 (low calorie ones) with the spring sports!

    Agreed; thanks Faye!

    DianeNC and Dr D - I have sent you both e-mail with the response from WRAL about why they were deleted by the mods. Glad we figured out your issue, Dr D! :-)

    DianeNC - you do not need to worry about posting any further technical instruction on how the wral website works. If someone has a question about posting, they are free to e-mail me. Thanks.

    Let's all get back to hunting deals so I can spend some more time on the HT SD list! :-)

    I did attempt to post 2 comments in a row - which would explain why my first Band of Bakers comment didn't get posted - thanks!

    I was not posting the same thing, Faye. The previous post that was removed last week was merely an explanation of the difference between affiliate website addresses and all others (in response to a question that was posted.)

    The two posts I made today were instructions (including screenshots!) on how to hyperlink websites/URLs and how to post images, since does not provide any instructions on their site on how to do either. (Not even any mouse over descriptions of what these icons are.)

    I was planning on posting instructions on how to use the Quote icon as well (which you use to quote just a portion of someone's post, not the entire post), but will not waste my time at this point.

    It's bad enough to have to deal with a terrible website design, but to then have posts I took the time to make trying to help folk work around the problems this redesign has created removed is something else.

    Dr D - Thanks for the additional info. The quote button may be the issue. DianeNC used it as well I believe, I will pass that on.

    Also, if you just posted in a thread, it appears you have to leave the comments section and then return in order to post again. If you just hit add comment right after another post you made, it will not post that second one.
