I'm no coward
But I'm not that brave
Rags are blowing
Rain's getting near
I'm done with running
And it's getting dark in here~

Make sure the pics are small enough - you can only post to a maximum of 800x800 pixels.

Beyond that, put the url of the image between the tags [img]and[/img] and all should be good.

I've a problem, as slight as it may seem. The 90's music thread isn't loading for me, any ideas why?

It's really, really heavy on Youtube videos. My 5.5 year old work PC just struggled to open it and froze for a bit while doing it.

I've never had this problem in all my time here reading/posting in threads. Even my netbook(which I use instead than my clunker of a PC) stuff can't load it.
Pah.
Thanks tho, I wasn't sure what was wrong, I asked a couple more people before posting my question, and they have no troubles.

I stopped opening these80s and 90s threads as well because the youtube videos are too much. (both amount of data and amount of bad music :P )

This is probably quite simple but I can't find it. I downloaded Abode PDF Reader last night. Didn't realise there were toolbars and other shit with it. I have deleted all those programmes but on my wife's account, Firefox opens with a search engine called snapdo. How do i change it back to Google? I deleted snapdo from my PC already.

Hmm. Looks like it's more complicated to change the homepage in the PC world than it is in Mac.

Maybe these links will help?
