    You are not alone, my personal learning curve perception has gotten really steep and I would also ask for mercy on us old farts.

    I don't know for certain, but the most likely explanation is the software is outdated and needs to be replaced. It's a major expense and headache to have to go through to keep current but it is reality in the wonderful world of computers.

    IF you don't like change, why are you using smokeless powders???

    With this update maybe the site will be secure, it currently is not.

    It takes a little effort but you will learn....eventually.
    Each time you go on the site you will learn a little bit more.
    That's life with computers.

    I have a very limited knowledge of how to work computers. I know how to get on this site.
    I only hope the changes are not too confusing to the computer operating challenged like myself , I no longer have the help and guidance I once had... the computer world is very perplexing to me .

    Just in case I can't get back on... I've really enjoyed my time on the forum ... I've never had anyone else to discuss boolit casting with... in the last 50 years not one of my friends took up casting and very few reloaded .

    Yes, will be secure (hopefully).

    I just got a new flip phone.... and now this. Actually the new flip is easier to manage than my 12 yr old slider. But it does have the multi press 10 key type feature so that is a step back. Nice camera though. It'll be okay.. it'll be okay.... it'll be okay......

    I suspect I'll learn how to use it after some colorful verbage. Unless we're blessed enough that even I can understand it.......
    One site that I was on wouldn't recognize my email address, and said it had to be with a cable company of some such......so I can't remember what my last cable address was and I just said goodbye!

    I hope the forum is largely unchanged. I cannot stand some of the other types of forum programs.

    Vbulletin is the best by far

    I'm with you Jim, XP is my go to machine. But I still use a DOS machine for some things. I went to the dark side with a windows surface about a year ago.
