    This turned out to be my favorite site unexpectedly. I am very thankful for all the communication we have with each other and the massively different viewpoints everyone brings to the table. THANKS AGAIN !!!:D:clap::wave::wub:;-) and sometimes :eek:,:lol:,and double:lolabove: If anyone gets on my nerves, I try to look at it through their perspective, after my feelings aren't hurt anymore.
    Then, I forgive them cause otherwise it takes too much energy and feels bad when you hold something against someone. I hope you can do the same for me. See ya around sowal, gang :cool:

    WOW!!!!!! This is fabulous. I love it. I'm so excited about all the beachcams, but I'm having trouble pulling up the pictures....are they online yet, or is it me?

    I just got on via Firefox on hubby's laptop. :clap:

    Kurt, I'd like to report a bug when I go to SoWal.com/bb on my Blackberry. The text for the link to new posts is the same color as the background (white), so I can't see the link. The only way I can find the link is to move the cursor around the screen until the arrow cursor turns into the pointing finger cursor. Just an FYI.

    I am using Firefox and bookmarked the link you emailed me (before - it takes me to the same "access denied page" and I choose "logout" so it takes me to the correct login page and I login again. :dunno:

    I think it is just a complicated way to keep us from PUI! :nuts:

    Everything I do is very slow to load.

    Some of the threads that I click on, load another thread.

    The wide ads on the right are very distracting, can they be sized down a bit?

    Can the Forum heading be moved from the extreme right? I can not see it w/out scrolling over every time.

    My eight-track mentality hasn't been able to tackle viewing the webcams, yet, but I did find out that you can click on Towns and go to your favorite town and your favorite beach access and there will probably be a great video of it. Way cool. I've already e-mailed links to "Eastern Lake Access Video" (my favorite) to several of my family. Way cool. :clap:

    This was the first morning I have signed on without incident since the switch-over started taking place. Smooth as butter.

    If no one has checked out the shopping section, it's really cool!

    This sounds like a cookie issue. Log out and clear your cookies then log in to http://SoWal.com/user/login

    The file name may have some odd characters in it? Rename to something simple like "avatar" and try it.

    I think I finally have it figure out regarding "log in" issues. Thanks for all the help, Kurt. I did all you suggested and other than having to log in every time I come back to the home page, it has been fine. Hope that continues. I really appreciate the site and hate it when I can't post.

    Hundreds of my pictures and most of my albums and blogs are still missing. Let me know if I can help add them back in. I tried to add a new picture today. It would let me add the album, put didn't see how to upload new picture.
