Serious Questions

Doggerel Dave

At my vintage I have been known

To have a ‘senior moment’

or two. Worry? No I will not

When others are much worse than I….


My Poetic Side forgets me:

‘Remember Me’ - I tick a box;

Abandoned when I leave the site -

Must re-register every time.


Also Notifications are

Hit and miss - if I don’t respond

I’ve had no time to double check.

Do others suffer – or just me?


Damnation! - I forgot to rhyme………

    You need to be hitting the pub, after ten pints senior moments disappear to be replaced with. Come with me sir, we've got a cell with your name on it.

    • Doggerel Dave

      I\'ll place that strategy in reserve, Paul.... Thanks though.

      When I was cut orf from here, I was on a rather complicated site. Found myself replying about 3 times to the same person. Not the same layout as MPS.

      • crypticbard

        That must be AP. And you are not alone, I too reply an equal number of times as you on the same comment, lol 😂

        • Doggerel Dave

          Not quite over that one, orchi - I'm only on MPS, don't want to go elsewhere, but I do want a trouble free entry and a smooth running programme.

          That's happened tp me at least twice Dave - - - I was refused a re-register too and when your password becomes unaccepted it becomes even worse to try to get in - -- I guess your words will be very familiar to more than a few on this site.

          • Doggerel Dave

            But how did it resolve itself, Fay? I've registered my main complaint (Remember Me) with Julian, but so far he hasn't managed to put it right. I'm here because I hope someone in the crowd might have experienced this and had it solved....

            • Fay Slimm.

              He put it right for me the twice it happened - but I had to wait for a number of days........

            • crypticbard

              Re-register! Oh the horror! Had that happen to me on 4 sites.

              • Doggerel Dave

                How you manage to attend to four sites, even if you already have your stuff primed to fire, is beyond me, mate.

                • crypticbard

                  Just a sucker for it, I guess

                  I have not had a problem with MPS as yet. Sometimes I lose a response, but that is due to the sensitivity of my mouse. I use a Mac.

                • Goldfinch60

                  I too have never had that problem since being on MPS.. I know Orchi has that problem. All you can do is contact Julian.


                  • Doggerel Dave

                    So I at least I now know I'm not alone and can put my paranoia away - Thanks for that, Andy.
                    But has the problem never been resolved?

                    • Goldfinch60

                      Orchi still has the odd problem, it is happening to him now.

                      I have to say I've never had a problem logging on or getting notifications. However, the rest of my life usually seems like an ongoing senior moment. So I've decided to give it up and live in the moment, because a few moments later it may be gone. Ignorance can be bliss. Thank you for reminding me, I think.

                      • Doggerel Dave

                        Well Bella, you were no help at all in solving my problem, were you? But moving on as I try hard not to bear a grudge.... I'm forced to say that to live in the moment seems to be a good strategy, since I haven't much choice... it's all that very early stuff which suddenly turns up in technicolor and causes my toes to curl in embarrassment which bothers me....

                        Senior moments are becoming a regular expectation for me. Loved the forgotten rhyme. I find myself digging back through some of your older poems. What worries me is when I find in my poems of years ago speaking of my senior moments.

                        • Doggerel Dave

                          Soren, go carefully if you are excavating some of my old stuff - there could quite possibly be something there which might.......surprise.....
                          Thanks for your call today.
