The mobile computing link at the top of every page doesn't work. It says something like please choose a forum when I click on it. Thanks

Why doesn't it work for me? Whenever I click on it it says you did not select a specific forum and it shows a drop down menu to select.

Did it ever work for you??
It may have something to do with your internet history files but I'm only guessing here...you might try clearing your history files and trying again.

Maybe someone else knows and can tell us?

Good Luck.

It never worked for me, but I'll try clearing out my history.

Tried... still no work...

Don't know...

Have you tried the Seti link yet?
Those are both new links so maybe we can narrow down our options.

Do any of the links work?

Good Luck

The seti link works. The only one that doesn't work is the mobile computing, and it doesn't work on 2 machines I have tried. I don't know what it could be. I have tried under win 98, win nt, win 2000 and still no go.

o.k.

I just tried my own link and it came up with your message.

I copied down the address as listed under properties on a right click and I got that.

I need to think on this...

I am just glad that you are getting the same thing now. I was beginning to think I got some bad crack or something.

Yeah....that's odd.

When I click the link...it works every time.
but
When I typed in what I saw it gets your message.

I asked Rich to show up here...I think he knows about that stuff.

Good Luck to all of us.

Okay, I normally surf using MSIE 5.01 and the link was working fine.. I brought up Netscape 4.72 and I get the error message.
What browser are you guys using? Perhaps this is a Netscape only problem.

Greg,

I just tried the link you posted with MSIE and I get the error message. This seems to be one of those pesky small but annoying problems. I will take a look at the source code for the page and see if I can find out whats up.. give me a few. If I cant figure it out I am sure there are some here in this forum that can.

I am no HTML expert but I think I have found the problem. I have checked all the link properties and as you can see Mobil Computing
is the only forum with a space in between
the words within link properties. I guess MSIE can handle the space while Netscape cant.

Here are the link properties

Ahhh see it even comes up as a dead link when copying and pasting.. although you cannot see the space in this post. I am sure it will be taken care of soon.
