Ask the Mods (and the rest of the board) Mark2

Order yourself a latte, and a pastry (The virtual cinnamon buns are excellent today). And have a nice chat.

Hi, Rocky has posted on FB that she can't get on to this site. She's getting a message saying her IP is blocked as she is blacklisted. Can any of the mods help? Thanks

I’m not on Facebook.

First question is to find out if she is at home.

Brilliant. Seems to have sorted itself. I'm at home and had wondered what had happened here that had added me to a blacklist :shock: thanks all.

It's possible that you have a "Dynamic IP". You service provider may change the one you use each time you connect. If so, his list may contain one that was banned for some reason. I'll have a look.

I'v had a quick look at the list of banned IP addresses and none of them resemble the one that you are using. Very odd. Must have been a temporary glitch.

It's possible that your own service provider put up a temporary "Ban Everyone" to stop any traffic while they did some maintenance on their equipment.

Zosh has sent me some photos (of her hobbit house) as a slide show via email, but which uploaded into One Drive …. Is there a way of putting them on here ? I did try, but I suspect the file was too large ???

As far as I’m aware, you can only load pictures and YouTube videos.

I don’t know “onedrive”. If it’s an open access app, then you can post the link to it.

Just had a quick look. It seems that onedrive is a Microsoft thing you have to sign up to before you can view anything.

if you click on the photos doesn't it give you an option to download/save as?
if so you should then be able to resize them (i just use a custom resize option - much easier) that can be found in the photo manager - i assume you are using a pc rather than apple.

thanks.... not sure I can re-size someone else's photos, but I will see if Zosh (or Mr Z) can do that ...

Once they are downloaded, they should be yours to do with as you wish.

It depends on how they have been linked into a slide show too, you can only resize them as individual picd
