  1. 1. Did you find these tips useful?


Did You Know ----


You can "Watch" a Forum using the "Watch Forum" button (normally at the head of the entry). This will add it to your start screen when you sign in. Do it for the "Start Here" Forum and never miss a new entry! Go on - Do it now!


Topics in a Forum can also be watch individually and allows you to customise your updates.


I'd score this tip 10/10 - but I would - wouldn't I - what say you?

Did You Know? - You can change the way each post is displayed when you are viewing a Topic


Go to Profile Settings and then to the Forums Tab and change the "Topic Display Mode" option


Have a play and see which option you prefer!


(The "Outline" display is ace - IMHO)


Click Here to See the Options



I changed my view to outline and I liked it but the "watch topic" button seemed to disappear. I'm sure it didn't vanish but I can't find it!!

I have my view on "Outline" and can still see the "Watch Topic" button. Are you already "watching" those Topic areas ?



I am watching them now but I wasn't at the time. The "stop watching topic/forum" button disappeared/moved too. I changed my view back to standard and then clicked watch on them all.


It's not a big issue though, I'll be being thick!

    • Hi Val - I've not heard this being an issue generally - very strange. OGI will be best to investigate. Would be good to know the outcome!!   Just a thought - is it only the extract / csv with the issue - or does the full printed report still not report these?  
    • Has anyone else come across this problem, we are getting quite a few cases where the renewal is not populating on the list.  OGI have been looking at this from the copy CSV lists we have sent them, but have not resolved this issue yet. 
    • Open GI Sanction Check Update!   Function shortfall now on the #OpenGI radar - watch this space! 
    • Partnership deals that are in the interests of Open-GI's profits and not the best infrastructure for their clients. HP - (30% returns from printers to servers when I worked for a HP partner. Haven't been pleasantly surprised with 6 more years of dealing with their hardware). Microsoft - Oh ook another 60 security holes and a zero-day (M$ product zero-days can only be fixed or mitigated by Microsoft) that has been actively exploited for over two months now. Sophos - Tavis Ormandy of Google's top security team, charitably wrote a 30 page paper, which concludes that the company was "working with good intentions" but is "ill-equipped to handle the output of one co-operative security researcher working in his spare time". Recently, they forced through Multi-Factor Authentication for their "cloud" management site (which has a really useless, coutnerintuitve and uninformative interface), that is completely useless in a ransomware take over, you could easily be left without access to your "cloud". They should implement physical keys if they are going to push for this, not software methods that can be taken over as part of an attack. 
    • The real question for Open GI is why is only 1 browser supported?   Why do you think that is?   10 points for each correct answer …
