Sorry to sound stupid, but I can't make head nor tail of all these abbreviations. What on earth does DD DS GC etc mean??? I honestly have tried to think of what they could be but have got no where! Please someone enlighten me on what I am obviously missing out on!!

Click on the 'Acronyms' button just below Gransnet Forum at the top of the page - you'll soon get the hang of them! smile

I have noticed if I take a long time to type a post it will suddenly disappear. Is there a time out mechanism?

A few have reported losing long post lately, maybe we are all saying far too much!!! grin
