Newcomers .. watch this first before you post!

Post by Mug UK »

Found this on another board .. funny Flash-based anim that all new visitors should watch and abide by :)

I develop a free Word (for Windows) add-in that's available for Word 2007 upwards. It's a fix-it toolbox that will allow power Word users to fix document errors. You can find it at: http://www.mikestoolbox.co.uk

Nice find and relevant to most forums on the internet! Makes you laugh a few times which is always a good way for newcomers to learn.

As a new site member I checked this out and got the following:

This site is not secure

This might mean that someone’s trying to fool you or steal any info you send to the server. You should close this site immediately.

:) No idea whether this is my PC security or something else! :)

Well the original post was 14 years ago ;)

That means the site's SSL cert isn't valid and/or configured properly. Not likely the end of the world in this case.
