Yeah, I order stuff online but sometimes you can’t avoid the store
There is a huge Acme store near me and it’s pretty easy to not get close to people. I’ve been the only person in an aisle. I keep it to once a week. There are markets I avoid only because they are smaller and always have more shoppers.

I don't see anything wrong with buying ice cream or some other treat if one is in the store already. That doesn't mean a person is not taking anything seriously.

??

The original discussion was about what is “essential”, and that &J wanting to go to the store just for ice cream is not essential. We got the ice cream the next week during our essentials shopping trip. Just yesterday &J wanted to take the car for its smog check; registration is coming due. I told him that wasn’t essential - what will the state do to us anyway? We’re following the governor’s orders to stay safer at home.

It seemed like you were not happy with the joking about ice cream. I stand corrected and probably responded to the wrong post

I need ice cream. And Oreos.

You people are so suspicious.... Everyone knows I can't get away with April Fools jokes on April 1st and that's why I always do them the day before. Or maybe in May. Or something.

Thanks for the pick-me-up. Have had to work everyday--busier than ever, so I don't have that problem until Friday when I'm off. I always think it's Saturday, never got used to being off a day early. I live for Thursday--TGIT. Gotta go home and go to sleep.

How is everyone? Stir crazy?

Here in my adopted home town, I've taken to walking to the Post Office for fresh air, sunshine and basically getting off my butt.

On my way home, I checked on a couple of letterboxes. Sad to report, that I needed to retire two of them. Officer Crittenden was out in the open with a broken container. That box has been around for 8 years!!! Oldest Bar in Minnesota was MIA. I'll look again for the Oldest Bar (I really liked that box).

I can see them in your logbook.
Are you sure you are looking at "Traditional"? Check to make sure all the options on that page are correct. Then if you still see a problem, post the link to the page (with all the options), so we can see what is going on. Thanks!
Printing Clues - not working

I tried to print a selected number of clues from one of my favorite searches. The "loading preview" just spins. I tried to print from another favorite search; same results. I know my mac is OLD and I will be replacing it later this year (as soon as we can get to the store).

I maxed out the RAM years ago. I'm running OSX Yosemite 10.10.5 and using Chrome browser 80.0.3987.162. I relaunched Chrome after confirming I had the latest version. I also downloaded and updated my printer's drivers after I couldn't get it to print.

I was able to print documents from other computer programs, so I wonder if it is AQ-related? Any suggestions?

I had/have the same issue.
Worked a bit with Ryan, but we didn't find anything.

I did find that Microsoft Edge printed faster - although things were slightly formatted different than printing through Chrome.

There does seem to be an issue with Chrome if you try to print a lot of clues and I can't figure it out. If you print clues one at a time, it works fine. Even two or three clues at a time worked, although the "print preview" took surprisingly long to display.

I didn't change anything--it seems to be an issue that started with an update in Chrome and is a problem related to only that browser.

The only advice I have for now is to use something other than Chrome to print lots of clues or print clues one at a time. If any you technical people know what the problem is, let me know and maybe I can fix it.

I will try a different browser, but it may make some sense - I was trying to print clues for this large series [Box #298710] and another one that had a large number of boxes.

I just figured it was the "conscience" that we need to "stay in place."

If it is about paying the state money for that, even if they only get part of the money, they will care. If your registration sticker expires then they can give you a ticket, which gets them more money.

I would think that this would be necessary because the state will make it necessary.

I would never mess with someone's logbook by deleting all of their finds! Do you know the RIOTS that would ensue if I tried a prank like that? Nope, no way... not gonna happen!

The finds really are there, though. I have to assume that the person was looking at the wrong page of their logbook, but I can't be certain without knowing the URL that they were using.

Discovered my mistake. I was trying to find out how to record a bonus box, clicked on “Others”, didn’t realize I didn’t switch it back to “traditional”.
All is great now, I have my whole list of finds back. My heart has calmed down. As for tomorrow, I can’t even imagine
What kind of pranks will be going on, but this would have been a good one for sure.
Thanks for the help.
