All I can suggest, Pam, is Google 'Flickr', in the results page in the first result (it is in my browser) there is a search box 'Search', type David Lawrence, press Enter.

You will be presented with every David Lawrence in the flickr world (there are a lot of DLs in flickr's 110+ million users+) but you never know one of the DL names might 'jump out at you'.

That should keep you busy till New Year. ;D ;D ;D

Thanks for that. This is a major concern. I clearly remember testing this feature along with a test of redirection of email addressed to (the nominated Admin email address) to my normal email address. At this point it gets a bit hazy - The redirection (from the web host to me) worked fine and I actually saved the email, however I do not have a copy of any email sent to me using the MB 'memberlist' email feature.
Why on earth I would keep one email and not the other, dunno folks! So I can't be 100% certain that the feature worked. I have just done another test from the MB, using a test account, to myself. I shall see what transpires Tue 28/12. If I don't get the email, I shall have to contact (web host) to see if there is anything specific, email wise, that needs to be set up, to make the MB email feature operate as advertised at their server. (SMTP numbers, credentials etc.).

Apologies for the confusion caused in the rabid rush to say 'this works, that doesn't work'. In my defense, it's a pretty steep learning curve! :'( :'(

Re emails - I made a boo boo in my last post.

When the envelope is clicked the Send Email form will open. Use this form to compose and send your message.

My earlier post describes what happens when the 'mailto' feature is used within a web page.
There are several instances of 'mailto' within Pam's website, please don't be tempted to use any of then - the 'To' addresses are almost certainly incorrect. Leaving you in a 'results unspecified' situation. Rectifying these errors is no my ToDo list.

The Chair recognises The Honourable Member for (in) Adelaide.

Thank You Mr/Mrs/Miss/Ms Speaker (notice how the distaff gender has 3 honorifics while MMs (Mere Males) are limited to 1 ;D ;D

I thank The Honourable Member for (in) Vung Tau for question. Always nice to get a question to which an answer can be supplied.

If there is no envelope to the right of the username then the user has elected, during the registration process, not to receive emails.

Food for thought or silent commentary on 'you can't tell me what to do' economies/cultures -
Source: WHO -

USA 51 million cases in a population of 330 million
Japan 1.7 million cases in a population of 125 million
UK 11.5 million cases in a population of 68 million
Australia 250K cases in a population of 26 million
VN 1.5 million cases in a population of 98 million

I don't mean to be depressing, but .......

Just a quick Welcome to Graham Keogh, who is now a registered member. I don't know if he read the registration instructions or just beat it into submission with a big stick ;D ;D ;D

That was really just a boring LR trip to Terendak. Arrival at 208 was 'interesting'. I eventually saw the SSM, I reckon it must have been WO2 Hillman, based on the '64 Squadron photo. At least, to my memory, he had a sense of humour - 'What do you do in your spare time?" he asks, "football, cricket, and drinking" was the response. It must have been early in the week, Tue or Wed, because his next remark was "Good, you can do both this coming Saturday. Transport leaves at 0630", "Where to?", 'Ipoh","Where's that?", "Up north - we'll organise some gear. No problem". Up north?? The brain must be working OK - Oh good it might be a bit cooler - further from the equator!! I was still dressed in UK traveling gear, including woolen blazer The 'organised ' gear turned out to be a pair of what these days might be called runners/trainers, white 'shorts',and a white short sleeved shirt. After 9 hours the the Ipoh sun, the trip back to Terendak was me, along with the rest of the 'team', drinking copious amounts of Tiger, doing a passable impression of a lobster. After that initiation, it didn't take me long to find the sailing club, and partake of all the activities that go with dinghy sailing.

I would counsel extreme caution, certainly in the short term. I've seen reports, mainly on Youtube from reasonably reputable bloggers and tech experts, that Win 11 is doing some very strange things (inter alia generating vast quantities of random empty folders, folders not showing in the file explorer when they patently do exist, considerable (up to 30%) performance/speed downgrades especially with AMD processors, etc). I am not aware of anything overtly dangerous, but, it would appear that, they really haven't a very good QA job on this product.
The option to revert to Win 10 period has been reduced to 10 days, rather than 30 days, as was the case when upgrading to Win 10 from 7/8/8.1.
Lastly MS are in a major push to collect user information to 'on-sell', (which is how they make their money!!). They do this by setting up the OS to assume approval to harvest info from users if that approval is not specifically denied. Considerable set up operations are required to ensure that MS cannot get at your info. Beware!! Google employ the same strategy.
Have you run the 'Can I run Windows 11 App'? (free download from MS) Google it. Your Laptop may well be too old. On the upside W10 updates will be available till 14 Oct 2025. They should have Win10 sorted out by then, it will have only taken a decade to get it right - so your laptop should be good for another 4-5 years after that ;D ;D ;D ;D

re Birthdate issue - Q4 on posts below. There is an SMF Mod which apparently adds birthdate field(s) to the Registration Form. The minimal documentation currently available does not specify whether or not the date is transferred to the user profile, and, whether or not the date is visible to other users.
For my money, if anyone really wants to know, how old I am or when to send me a birthday card, then they can ask me.
With your permission, end of research. ;D ;D
