    Default Drum Chat Tips

    Just thought I'd let you guys in on a little tip. If pages are ever slow to load, just hit the stop botton on your browser and then the refresh button. This usually speeds things along and will save you some time and frustration. I know many of you know this but I thought it would help some of those that aren't quite as good with computers.

    In IE, its the one with the two arrows going in either direction. Not sure where it is on other browsers.

    Or you can right click on the page and see it in the menu there. If your on a mac it's alt-click I think, unless you've got one of those new fangled macs with the two buttons - it's like something out of Star Treck!

    Cool Drum Chat Tips

    On Windows XP, look at the top of your page below the blue subject bar and look for the two dancing arrows (about three-fourths of the way across the bar from left to right). It's next to the window that shows the http:// info on where you are in DrumChat...

    (P.S.--it's also good for refreshing the smilies in Shoutbox!)

    Dancing arrows is right, but it's onyl in thatposition if your using IE 7.0 - earlier verisons of Internet Explorer still have the big square buttons above the address bar. Plus they might be using firefox or and apple mac (although I don't know why) i which case it's different again.

    There's also a warm reboot if all else fails. It clears gremlins of all kinds.

    Don't get me wrong... I've been known to exercise quite a "Technical Slap" but it tends to work better, if you hunt down the problem, and fix it... the technical slaps are for when you're trying to fix it and the damn machine throws obstacles in the way.
