    Help! I miss the forums.....

    Can anybody help me? It's been weeks now since I can log in and enjoy the forunms like I used to.

    You see I work the grave yard shift at my job, which gave me planty of time to log in and enjoy the forums, and post my own items. However since the forums changed a few weeks ago to a WDW "RADIO" format. The firewall at my job prevents it from opening.

    I really miss everyone, and reading the forums, especialy because I'm planningmy next fall trip.

    I was able to log in today from home, but with a dial up it took wayyyyyyyy to long to open everything. And I don't have the kind of time that I do at work.
    Is there a way to by [as the radio stuff and just enjoy the forums like I used too?

    Miss you guys!

    I'm not entirely sure of your problem. Are they blocking the entire domain because It is "www.wdwradio.com"?!? If thats the case, you are pretty SOL. Everything is under that domain now.

    If all you need is a URL that takes you straight to the forums without going through the main page, that would be:

    http://www.wdwradio.com/forums/

    The "format" of the forums has not changed. Only the domain name.

    From what I could grasp, it has something to do with streaming.

    Lou offered Jenn some good advice that you could try on this thread. Make sure you read on down,. www.wdwradio.com/forums/general-discussions/19459-new-forums.html

    Sadly we lost several friends and members during working hours for the same firewall difficulties.

    Maybe that can help you fill the gaps at work if Lou's ideas don't work with your companies firewall. Just don't forget to stop by here from home!

    Some people are like Slinkies.

    They aren't really good for anything,
    but they still bring a smile to my face when I push them down a flight of stairs.

    Friends are Gods way of apologizing to us for our families.

    Would love too but can't because as I mentioned earlier it's a work PC.

    Fortunatley, I'm still able to come around once in a while from home. It's tough though because I'm on a dial up and taked for ever to see anything, let alone reply.

    Yes, They are blocking the whole domain because it's: www.wdwradio.com"

    Believe me Goofy,I can tell you about dial-up.It s**! Furthermore,if you are with net zero,get rid of them.If you pay with a credit card to them,if you use them,close out your card and get another.They are crooks! I lost my job last year and contacted them about my 1 year contract;wanted to pay them off and be done.The mgr said she could give me 3 months free and then lower my monthly fee.After 4 months expired,I never got a bill,but then they discontinued my connection.No problem.I had already closed out my credit card,so they could not keep billing me.
    We Had to get DSL because my daughter is preparing for college,so we are using that now.Man,I love it! fast,fast,fast! Even hulu for old tv shows.
    Sorry about the bok,but I got carried away.I do recommend At&t DSL,We are getting a $50 rebate too.

    I know what you mean., I'm a creature of habiti, and don't take well to change. But I figure a change will be coming soon. Just waiting to see how this economy will do.

    I've had AOL for years and have heard horror stories about them too with not wanting to let you go. However I've been with them since '96 and up till last year I was paying $25.90 a month. When I called to cancel last year, they dropped me down to $9.99

    Eventually though I may change to Comcast or AT&T.

    The $9.99 is better than the $25 you were paying,but we are paying around $30 something for the DSL with at&t.You might want to check it out a little more.At least then it will be high speed.It does make a difference.I've have never had any dealings with aol,but I have not heard anything good about them either.
    (Personally,I think the internet should be free to connect with high speed).
