      Maralyn,

      If your getting the email notification from our system, it will say "someone" commented on your question, and the hightlighted text will say "view original dialog and post" just click on the link and you will go directly to that comment and post in another window.

      Let me know if you need anymore help.

      it will say someone posted a comment on one i participated in, and it doesn 't show up when i click "view original post and dialog", only a couple of them,,, do i have to go back to the pinboard to the original start and get all the other comments there??? sorry to be so computer illiterate---

      Maralyn, If you have a windows computer, its all Bill Gates' fault. I know where \Bill lives and I can drop you off on his dock but I will probably not pick you up. If you have an Apple computer then Steve Jobs is already dead. They are the twp people most likely to get the blame for computer problems.

      When you get one of these E-mails if you click on the link in the E-mail it should take you right to the post that is being referenced with all of the comments listred under the post. I say should becsause things don't aslways work as advertised even for me an engineer and Rocket Scientist. I sometimes only get three of the comments and when I try and expand the commnets to see them all it dosen't always work. It all goes back the when computers were first invented back in the late 1940's. They had a fundemental choice that they got wrong. The choice was between making computers do what you want them to do and what you tell them to do. They took the easy way out and made them do what you tell them to do, only it turns out you are only making suggestions it is the software people that actually tell your computer what to do not you. Thus we are back to the firs part of this E-mail blaming it on Bill and Steve. Good Luck and don't get too frustrated with WhatNext it works well most of the time!
