Off-Topic Forum

The MPIP Off-Topic Forum is a community bulletin board that provides the melanoma community with a safe space to share experiences and to give and find support from others who can relate to having or caring for someone with a melanoma diagnosis. Please note: if you have an urgent question about melanoma to ask the community, visit the main MPIP Forum.

MPIP is the oldest and largest community of people affected by melanoma hosted through the Melanoma Research Foundation. It is designed to provide support and information to caregivers, patients, family and friends. Once you have been touched by melanoma—either as a patient or as a family member or friend of a patient—you become part of a community. It is not a community anyone joins willingly. But if you must be part of this group, you will find no better place to find the tools you need in your journey with this cancer, and the friends who can make that journey more bearable.

The information on the bulletin board is open and accessible to everyone. To add a new topic or to post a reply, you must be a registered user. Please note that you will be able to post both topics and replies anonymously even though you are logged in. All posts must abide by MRF posting policies.

All we got was some good rain and medium wind. Took the boat out of the water just to be safe.  The storm had weakened a lot before it got up to us. Hope those further south got by ok.

I'm having a problem with being relentlessly logged off of this site. I know I'm not alone in this, since Fen posted something last week or so about having the same issue.

I've tried about everything I can think of to fix it, but it happens over and over. It asks me if I want to stay logged in, I say yes, but if I close the site and come back a few mintues later, I have to log in again.

unlike Fen, who has to add his password over and over again, I don't.. once I start the log in process (by putting in the first initial of my name) it shows my name in the pop up window, and once I choose that, it shows that my password is saved, then I hit the 'do you want to stay logged in button', then log in, and I'm fine, but I have to do it every time.

Like Fen, I also had that red box telling me something about info being compromised and that I'd been logged off. I was out of town, logging in from a hotel at that time, so I sort of assumed that the problem was due to me being on a public line, but I've not been able to correct it since returning home.

I noticed on the main board, that when Fen posted, several others mentioned that they were having the same problem (jerry from CC was one)

For all I know everyone is having the problem. Any suggestions?

so, it appears that more than a few of us are having the same problem with our log in process. Mainly that we have to log in every time we visit, even though we've requested that the site remember our log in.

what's up with that?

I noticed this ad for a few days ---while reading a particular site ( always looking to catch a glimpse of someone- you never know) - today was the day I clicked...

Mr. Nice looking for Ms. Nice!    IF  you are perfect...hurry over - this guy sound like a catch ( IMHO - sounds like something you'd be better off NOT catching...but true to my matchmakers heart I had to pass this along  for the women looking for love with equally unrealistic expectations )

Bitches need not apply ( on the other hand...I'd LOVE to see the advertisement by the man looking for a just that type of gal!)

The format is awkward to use, the turnout is meager and the topics are dull.  Used to be a lot of fun but now deadly dull. Death to smootchie? If they wanted bland they sure got it. Mostly sterile other than crazy Dan and his supersized waist band. Yawn dozed off or left town with Mother Teraysa. Tina, Dian and Cyn try hard but don't get much support. Too bad. It was fun for a long time tho.

We lost an opportunity that will not come again for a while and the next time a negro (we're ALL african americans) is elected will be a seed pod sent to...Vector..

Bill, can you get my dryer vent?

I didn't realize until lately that the whole area in question already houses strip clubs, fast food joints, etc... Why would we allow those things at 'sacred' ground, but not a religious community center? 

 

I think I smell some rats...

Some people might remember me some not the site is so boring now.  I am or was stage four (but after 5 years no telling what the doc think now).  

This spring I had surgery to remove a new lump in my lung that turned out to be benign (so I missed the bullet again) and after recovery from that.  I decided to go for another long bike ride.  This time down the Mississippi River.

If anyone wants to follow the blog is:

Oldmuddybikeride.blogspot.com

Hope you all play nice and try to find some way to have fun here.

We need the old days back with the afghan wars or just some bad poems anything to liven life up. Obama topics just do not seem to fire up the political fire fights that used happen here.  Even the dumb stuff in FL and NY do not seem to stir the pot as much they used to. Maybe we are all just getting old.  

Maybe when I get back thing will move along.

Allan

PS Hope you like married life Cyn

All I can say is...Jerry is one tough Son of a gun.  This former Marine hasn't let Stage 4 Mel get the best of him...nor was he about to let an unbelievable horseback riding accident either!  His daughter got a message thru to me via fb...that he wanted to talk to me.  I called earlier this afternoon.  Jerry was up in a wheelchair and had just returned to his room following a successful  'swallow test'.  He had his trach and feeding tube  removed yesterday and will now be able to eat real food.   He was alert, oriented, laughing and generally happy with the outcome.  He is able to walk to the bathroom with the help of a walker and thankfully has no memory of the accident.  

God is good....
