Well, is it OK then to post trivia occasionally on the general topics forum without being afraid of being reprimanded?  I get the feeling that Alwil team is looking the other way --- and so it seemed logical that there should be a forum for it --- maybe it could be called "Trivia", for example.   ::) ??? 
And do you know why all the dates on these old topics show yesterday's date ( at least on my page)?

Not only those old posts have yesterday's date, my profile shows that same time as the time I registered and just about every place there is a time for anything, it is yesterday's date and the same time in the morning ---- what's going on?  ??? ??? ???

Is your profile correctly set?
Is your computer time and date correct?

You'll see we talk about other softwares and hardwares from time to time... there are limits but they don't seem to interfere unless it very much off topic.

I don't know what I'm doing that is not correct, but each time I go over it and type in the month and day, year, hour, minutes, seconds, and click change , it just sits there and that time is then on most posts all over the forums.  ??? :-\ :'(

Thanks, Bob!!!    I was typing in my time etc. and apparently it should be left blank ---
anyway, all dates have gone back to normal.  :)
And thanks for your input, Tech!!!  I took a screenshot of the profile change I was trying to do, but I can't find a way to post it --- couldn't copy and paste --- so now I don't need to post it anyway. :D

Click additional options and choose the screenshot file you've saved in your disk.

If you saved the screenshot in an image editor (like MS Paint) as a gif/jpg file then you can attach it to your posts.

I saved it as a text file in my documents, and I opened additional options, browsed, clicked open, and then what?  It showed the file in the blank space for attach;, but I can't get a preview--- red letters say the message body was left empty --- am I supposed to put a message in the reply message body, and the attachment will post, too?

You can't save a picture as text file... you will lose it.
Choose any picture format that forums allow to upload.

But, Guys, this is not a picture; we are talking about the time, how to set it properly.  It is working now, but I am trying to learn how to copy my screenshot of the text in my profile just to figure out the system. First, I did the screenshot so it would show "WHERE" as Tech had asked, and I saved it as a text file in my documents, then found that there is no way to copy and paste it, so I am trying to find a way to post it so I'll know next time --- but it is all text, no picture. I see that it posted in an unreadable size, so now what? ???

A screenshot is a picture of yoour screen. Use paint(or similar) to save it as a jpg.

Click on the image you attached to your post.  ;D
