Here's my problem..

I recently replaced my home computer tower that died with a used one I got from a buddy...all is up and running, and I can browse various sites, etc. The issue is when I go to Google for example, and try and click the arrow in the search engine space, the blinking cursor won't pop in there, allowing me to type what I want to search for...same thing happens in other sites, such as FM or Ebay. I am able to type "Ebay" into my browser, but I'm not able to type anything inside the site I've arrived at. I figure it's got to be within my settings somewhere, but I can't figure it out and I'm running out of curse words to yell at it confused.gifmad.gif

Any ideas?

Thanks Guys.

What are you using for a browser and what version are you using? If you're using internet explorer throw it away and install Mozilla Firefox. Go to www dot getfirefox (Contact Us Please) to get it for free.

This tower is using windows 98...and yes, I was using I-Explorer. Are you saying that the problem is Internet Explorer? I'm not opposed to uploading Firefox, as I've used it before, but I'm wondering if that will resolove the issue? And just for my own curiosity, if it does the trick....why? What's the problem with Explorer?

Thanks..

Windows 98, if that's what you're asking me. If not, sorry I'm not understanding the question better.

You may need a more current version of IE.

IFRon-

In your opinion, what's the best/most efficient way to do this? Can it be uploaded online, or do I need to buy the software?

      Private landowners interested in learning more about managing their woodlands for habitat and income can attend a low-cost workshop and field tour from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, May 6, at the Cohasset Community Center at 3rd St. NW, Cohasset. The Itasca County Private Woodlands Committee is hosting the workshop with assistance from the Department of Natural Resources Cooperative Forest Management (CFM) program. The workshop aims to educate landowners about timber management and how to thoughtfully and purposely harvest trees to create better wildlife habitat and generate income from a timber sale. Woodland owners can also learn about options for enrolling in a tax incentive program to reduce property taxes. The day will begin indoors with a series of educational sessions about managing forests to benefit a variety of wildlife, working with a consulting forester to write a stewardship plan, the mechanics of a timber sale, and how to contract with a qualified logger. After lunch, participants will board busses for an afternoon tour of different sites to see first-hand the differences in unmanaged and managed timber, and previously cut timber in various stages of regeneration. “Our last workshop this winter in Palisade had over 100 attendees and we are anticipating strong interest in the Grand Rapids area, too,” said Grand Rapids area CFM Forester, Josh Donatell. “Over the last 20 years, there has been a decline in timber harvest from private lands. This program helps restore lost habitat on private land as well as promote a more stable supply of wood and fiber for the timber industry.” Pre-registration is required. The $20 cost includes lunch and field tours. Participants should dress appropriately for outdoor weather and wear sturdy shoes or boots. Anyone interested in attending or registering can contact Josh Donatell by email at josh.donatell@state.mn.us, or by phone at 218-328-8912. An agenda can be viewed online at www.dnr.state.mn.us/woodlands/workshop.html.   Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
