They did. It was just that one page. Now that it's been broken down, no more problems. Perhaps I'd better avoid the Song Title Game thread though, LOL!

Hoot, you're pretty computer savvy. And since my question to Janet (who had replied to this thread) was apparently too hard to answer, if a person were to do an advanced search using the thread name and that thread had been split, does it still search both parts of the thread?

For example: if I remembered a user's name and them posting a recipe called "Darn good brownies", but don't know if it was in 2013 or back farther (the other part of the thread), will the search engine know where to look, in both parts?

It should. I do know that sometimes Google is better at finding things here than the DC search tool. For instance, you might enter darn good brownies discuss cooking in the Google search window and it generally displays a link to that post.

I sometimes use Google's advanced search where you can limit your search to a specific domain.

Also, If you search for darn good brownies and the members name for all of DC rather than just one thread, you'd get what you want.

Or search in a specific forum or subforum. But I often use Google, too. You can restrict a search to a specific site by using this syntax in Google's search box:

site:discusscooking.com "man catcher brownies" GotGarlic

I knew that. I just think of them as one since Google developed the Chrome OS, right? Or at least they're very closely interconnected.

I don't speak "Tech", that's Himself's domain. When he starts getting me all confused with too much tech talk I just confuse him back by replying in "Culinary". Those two "languages" are about as different from each other as speaking "man" or "woman".

Google developed the Chrome internet browser. It's not an OS (operating system). Google also bought, but didn't originally develop, the Android mobile OS, and it has developed dozens of other programs. As a former network/desktop tech support specialist I think it's important to use the correct terminology as much as possible, to avoid misunderstandings, although I know a lot of non-techie people often don't know the details.

One example I used to hear all the time is "My Adobe doesn't work." Well, Adobe is a software manufacturer, not a program, and they make a lot of programs. So then I needed to ask more questions or go to their office to find out exactly what the problem was Fun, fun, fun!

So, I guess I speak both!

Yay, thanks bakechef! I wasn't completely dumb GG! I know Himself has Ubuntu on the old tower connected to the TV. But he still uses Chrome for his browser.

I guess the "chubby" (because there is no "skinny" in THIS house!) is that my ASUS notebook has Windows for its OS and the browsers installed are IE (of course), Firefox, and Chrome. I use Chrome mostly because it remembers more of what I've done than I do.

I use chrome because it's not only fast, but the same browser across all of my devices, tablet, phone, and laptop. No matter which device I am on, the browser auto completes the same, all of the bookmarks are the same, and if I forgot the name of a website that I was at, I can go to the history on any device and look it up. I like saving a bookmark on my phone and having it automatically on my laptop, and tablet too!

I use Firefox for the same reason!

I like Firefox too, chrome just made this effortless, so I stuck with that. I may give Firefox for android a try.

Firefox with Xmarks takes care of synchronizing my bookmarks. I tried the built in FF bookmark synchronization and it kept losing my bookmarks. It may be better now - but Xmarks works fine AND keeps all my bookmarks archived back for a couple of years, or more, which has come in handy on a couple of occasions.

I found this out the semi-hard way. My old trusty laptop, Elise, crashed. Apparently Gateway had issues with the computer kinda starting but displaying nothing - affording you no useable computer. *sigh* When he couldn't revive Elise I panicked because ALL my links to ALL our upcoming vacations plans were...in there! Slowly, quietly, he got Squirt out, powered her up, and said "sign in to google". I did, opened a page, and.......VOILA! A smaller version of what I had been seeing on Elise. Vacation saved!

When I moved over from Firefox to Google FF didn't have that feature (that I know of). Since I'm not good with change (do you hear me Yahoo? ) I stick with what I know most recently. Some dogs just don't want to learn new tricks.

Here's an easy, very worthwhile trick: Use an online backup service like Backblaze. It backs up every change constantly so you don't have to worry about losing anything. I have decades of photos on my computer, among other things. I've been digitizing all kinds of things to keep the paperwork flow down, and if my hard drive dies, I will still have them.

You're talking "Tech" GG. I'll pass this on to Himself. He SHOULD know this kind of stuff with all of his decades in IT. Probably just one more thing he lets slide...until the spit hits the fan.
