    Jingle here is a site that gives a relatively simple explanation. from what I can tell there are still some apps and sites that need Java to run but I imagine you would have to know what those are.

    Java? Java Script? Good grief ..... I don't even know what I have - or what I need. Isn't it amazing that I keep plugging along?

    Javascript isn't something you set up on your computer. It's a coding language that is widely used all over the internet to do what Java does ... but safer

    Only a few banking apps and some old school websites will actually require you to use Java. 90% of computer users can disable Java and never miss it

    Jingle I'm not sure if your laptop has any physical controls for the brightness. Do you see any buttons on the frame of the display that look like a sun?
    Question: Why can't I post links or pictures?
    Question: Why can't I have a signature, avatar, or profile picture?
    Question: What's wrong with my account?

    Answer: You are in the "registered users" user group. This group is very limited in what it can do. This will annoy spammers to no end Just keep posting once you have been registered for 30 days and have made 11 posts your account will be "unlocked".

    It's really easy to put someone on ignore and it's strongly recommended that you do so with people who's posts you don't like.

    Step 1 - log in
    Step 2 - click on the "settings" link
    Step 3 - click on the "edit ignore list" link on the left side of the screen
    Step 4 - type (or paste if you copied and pasted it) the username of the person you want to ignore
    Step 5 - click the "ok" button on the right of the screen

    Easy peasy and will lower your blood pressure. One important note though, this won't hide quoted posts. It's an oversight on the developers part and it's not an easy thing to "fix." So if someone quotes someone you have ignored, you'll see the quote.

    Alternatively when you click on a person's name and view their profile page, underneath their avatar, there is a option that says, "Ignore this person". Click that link and then click the yes button.
