Very annoying when a website insists on auto refresh, even if there's new content, if I'm reading something, I don't want an interruption,

The solution is in "internet options" which you get to through the control panel

Once in control panel, type in the search field "internet", click on the main button "internet options"

In the applet, go to the security tab

Then go to "custom level"

From there, find "miscellaneous

Under Miscellanea find "allow meta data refresh" and click disable, hit ok, close the applet.

That should do the trick

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?

Impressed you have kept this alive this long EP! So many sites have come and gone. :(

Just did some crude math and I apparently joined almost 18yrs ago, how is that possible???
