Tutorial 09: Refreshing Pages & Deleting stored information:
Computers usually store web pages in a 'Cashe' memory so that they are there immediately.
In 'Windows' browsers, the 'Refresh' Icon ( ) is usually in the top toolbar.
This will reload the web page if there are any problems with it or if you want to check for a new version.
However, in the case of a 'framed' web page - like the Cheers one - a Refresh will merely return you to the home page and when you return to the desired page again it may or may not be updated.
For this reason I put a 'Refresh' link in the web page navigation bars - again see the Cheers website.
A 'Refresh' is virtually instantaneous - not like re-booting !
Deleting Cashe Memory information:
store a LOT of information regarding previous pages viewed, web
and email addresses, account names and passwords, etc.
internet explorer by Clicking 'Start' then 'Right
Clicking' on the Internet Explorer Icon and selecting 'Internet
The control panel which opens allows Deletion of 'Cookies', Web Browser History, Security Settings and much more.
Tutorial 10: Mel's Sillies
LOTS of 'funny' and 'serious' information by email, most of
which I call my 'Sillies' which are saved on my web pages.
I TRY to keep them viewable by anyone, including children'
and they can be viewed from links on my home page or
received that are unsuitable for children or may be
considered racially biased, politically incorrect, etc are
saved in my 'X' Sillies.
BOTH indexes have a 'Recent' section in reverse date order,
Forwarding Mel's Sillies:
I often get requests on 'how to
forward one of my sillies', the easiest way is to include a
link to my sillies index pages:
Alternatively, Right Click on a title and select 'Copy shortcut' the link can then be 'Pasted' into your email (Right Click & Select 'Paste').
If you want to 'hide' the
location of the silly you can type your email first, then
select 'Insert Hyperlink' and Paste the link saved
previously from my Sillies Index page.
