    Can you post a link to another one or two that are broken?

    I have midterm exams this week, but hope to get back to things after that. I've just put this on my todo! :)

    Just started graduate classes last semester... you know, "for fun." :rolleyes:

    It was fun last semester, but this semester I decided to take two classes, which was just silly considering the rest of my schedule. I don't know what I was thinking. I won't make that mistake again!

    Um.. yea! What were you thinking?:D Plus the fact that they tack on a paper in just about every graduate class, it adds to the beating.

    Just take it one class at a time, keep plugging. Eventually, you'll get done.;)

    Oh.. BTW.. make sure you have a signed program of classes signed and approved. There's nothing worse than when you think you're almost done, and they try to hit you up for something.

    FYI, I just fixed this issue -- but there's a twist!

    It turns out that the broken threads weren't actually polls at all -- they were just showing up that way. They were actually threads that had been Moved from that category (in this case, Windows NT/2000/XP) to another forum. The links that were supposed to point to the thread's new location got messed up by my "Thread Timeout" hack. Oops. :)

    If you follow the link Karen posted to the archive, you'll notice that threads that previously showed up as polls are now Moved, and the links work:
    http://forums.techguy.org/33-archive-windows-nt-2000-xp/

    Unfortunately, the links posted in this thread are the incorrect ones, so they will continue to NOT work. The correct links now show up in the forum, though.

    I hope that all makes sense. :)
