    I am writing this at the library which limits me somewhat as I cannot open certain web pages.

    This morning I turned my computer on, turned the 3 wifi which is connected to it on, and the screen acted as normal until I clicked on the Firefox symbol which usually takes me to Google sign in... but I got a message up which said that it was not a safe connection as the certificate had expired in the connection that had come up, and it had probably been compromised by third party ....... or words to that effect. No matter how I tried to log on, it would not let me. The wifi was ok it was connected and found ....

    I cannot obviously get onto the internet to gon onto another browser etc.... Can anyone suggest anything please? Please remember I am in the library so if I don't come back for a few days that is why but if I am still here logged in I will receive your answer. Thank you.

    Thank you sb8263. Maybe when I get back home it will be working. I hope so ... I can't cope with technical things going wrong as I am rubbish with them.... Appreciate your prompt response. :) Joy

    Wouldn't you just hate to be on a plane and hear the pilot say 'we seem to have a slight problem with the fight deck computers, however we will turn everything off and wait 3 minutes and then restart them, presently we are 33,000 feet so we should have plenty of time for the reboot'.....computers don't you just love them!!

    Ah.....

    Go to

    Www.clivescats.com

    and when you have finished laughing at the absurdity of some of the cartoons, find the search box at upper right and search for logging on or log on.

    I can't copy and paste the images on here as we need to respect his copyright Hope that helps

    Oh dear....... I don't think I explained very well....

    You will find a white oblong box at the upper right which is the search box. Type log on or logging on into this and then hit "go" and it will search for a cartoon, which you may find amusing. Sorry

    3 rules of computing.

    If him no worky...

    turn off and on.

    if still no worky

    hit it with bit of wood.

    if still no worky

    chuck out of window.

    hope that wasn't too technical.

    Honest, David. It isn't there. No cats. No white box. No mice. No nothing. :( :(

    Just a thought, it might be my computer cos I keep getting messages about Java script.. you think?

    I'm not an expert but it could well be the problem. A shame, as it is quite funny (but most of Clive's cats stuff is)
