Re: What is happening

Re: What is happening

My wife & I are like you about Chrome, but we have it primarily for Shutterfly. You simply can hardly use Edge on it. It takes forever to upload photos with Chrome; Edge will time out. If you find...

Re: What is happening

I just checked again, like I do every day, and I still cannot access the NKT. This has been going on since the first of February.

Rest in Peace, NKT. It's a shame.

"Presentable from 10 paces". That's what we used to call a 50/50 restoration; 50 miles an hour and 50 feet away, it looks great! Just so the final paint job doesn't look like a 3B paint job. 3B? ...
