I was just wondering if there were any system requirements for this forum. I've finally got the internet up and running in my student house, but its a very old computer. I tried to sign on to the forum and it would let me view posts and threads etc, but not sign in myself and post. Was wondering if there was a reason for this?

If your computer allows you to access the internet then you have passed the minimum system requirement. About the issue it won't let you login, I had this problem with my browser previously, try making a new account and see if that works and lets you login. If that doesn't work try update your browser.

I tried doing that, I created a new account and I was signed in then my computer crashed when I tried to post a reply, apparently I'd performed an illegal operation. Tried to update my browser as well, but my computer is ridiculously old and only has Windows 95, all the more recent ones wanted Windows 98 as a minimum requirement. I just thought it was very strange that I could view the site but not reply tp anything, stupid computer, getting a new one for graduation though, so guess I'll just have to put up with it!

Did you remember to wind your computer today?

Sorry - I couldn't resist it!

Thanks, that'll be why it doesn't work then! I'll stop messing about with my settings and resign myself to the fact that I'll have to keep going into uni to post! x.
