No Joy not that desperate ;-)

I've had the same, mesages in my inbox with no notification, since Saturday

Estelle did say somewhere that they had suspended some part of the email system when trying to sort out Friday's mess.

Hi Sylvia and Joy,
thanks for pointing out that you're not receiving notification of new emails. I'll look into this as I think you should be.



Estelle Advisor Report 15 Nov 2011 09:52

Hi Joy and Sylvia,
I've just tested this now and you're quite right. No email is sent. I've let Phil know so he'll take a look at it soon.


GlitterBaby Report 15 Nov 2011 12:08

Why am I not included in your comments Estelle ? I did mention about the lack of GR notification but hey ho obviously not on a favourite list :-|


Estelle Advisor Report 15 Nov 2011 12:20

Oh Maureen, I am so sorry. I didn't mean to leave you out! :-)

In the past two weeks I have sent 21 messages and received three replies. Checking today I see that ten messages have not even been opened. I'm beginning to consider not renewing my membership.


patchem Report 15 Nov 2011 17:41

If 10 messages have not been opened, then 11 have.
Of these 11 only 3 people have replied.
Do you expect genes to be responsible for people not replying to you?

And from board to board - jumping about again.

Thank you Estelle!

Only been on here 10 minutes so far today and in that time had five error messages!!!!


Island Report 16 Nov 2011 11:00

I've had error messages, login failure and slow,slow, stop,stop,slow this morning.

I'm sure I'm not the only slow typist here who is even more dismayed by getting the error message or is logged out when attempting to submit a post which has taken time and effort only to have it lost.


SylviaInCanada Report 16 Nov 2011 20:20


Sometimes if you hit the Back button when you get the Error message, you go back to the page with your message showing in the box.

Then you can try to re-submit, or copy the message and start again.

I've also sometimes found that the message has posted in spite of getting the Error message.

I now try to remember to copy any message that is longer than one line before hitting Submit, so that I can recover it when it disappears.

Just go into Edit, highlight the message, go into Edit, click on Copy.

Then, when you get the Error message, just go to the Reply box, go into Edit, and click on Paste

Fed up

Error messages are back


Island Report 18 Nov 2011 10:04

Thank you Sylvia :-D

I'm au fait with all you suggest but often by the time I get back the moment has passed :-(

This is why I generally stick to one line banter threads :-D

Error messages are back


Kense Report 20 Nov 2011 14:07

If you google the whole phrase you will find many have asked the same question.

Basically it's an error encountered in the software where the program has an incompatibility in the data it is using, between an integer held in a 32 bit word and a string of 8-bit bytes.

Normally such an error message would be handled in the software and a more meaningful (but less useful) error message displayed (like the one we are all used to).


SylviaInCanada Report 20 Nov 2011 20:31

It has just taken 3 attempts to open My Threads

no Error messages, just no response at all


JoyDean Report 21 Nov 2011 13:57

Clicking on my threads took me to success stories :-S
