    mine are GONE. Can you guys give me some of your metal working sites? I can't remember all that I had saved. I've got this one, the Miller site, Practical Machinist, and Hobart. I know there were more. I'm interested in the welding sites and the machining sites. Where oh where did the likes of Cutter go???

    TIA

      If you're using Firefox, they may not really be as gone as they look.

        Links - location

        In my case on my W2K machine, "favorites" is located at:
        C:\Documents and Settings\Oldtiffy\Favorites

        I save mine regularly. That has got me going again with minimal loss in very quick order several times.

          Firefox backs them up regularly, but hides the backups pretty deep. It's not uncommon to lose the main file, but the backups are always there if you know where to look.

            Try this:

            In Firefox from the menu bar,

            View>Toolbars>Customize>Restore default set>Done
            Free software for calculating bolt circles and similar: Click Here

              Write them down, so that you always have them when this situation occurs.

                  thanks for the links and the info. I am running firefox but I got on here one day and yahoo had taken over everything. changed my homepage and everything I had at the top of the page AND my bookmarks were gone.

                  Evan - I tried your suggestion - no success here but thanks

                  bruto - any idea where they might be?

                  I haven't tried all the links you guys left for me but I don't recognize any of them as being the one where cutter hangs out. anymore suggestions?

                  thanks again

                    Just released version supposedly fixed the memory leak problem and
                    reduced hackability, (released yesterday).

                      Just released version also has other dumb things in it. There is an RFC (standards document) that allows for a particular flag to be set on a web site that prevents the browser from caching a page. One of our developers uses it on several university sites that contain critical information to prevent the info from accidentally sitting in the cache on a public machine and another student from being able to hit the "back" button and see the previous user's stuff. The new version of Firefox ignores this and the developer talk on their site takes the "we don't think that's important" attitude.

                      So much for security.

                      What really sucks is that if you install this, our applications check for the browser type and now prevent the use of the new Firefox due to this issue. Unfortunately, Mozilla has taken down the installer for the old version, so if you upgrade before you find out it won't work, you are hosed. And I thought only Microsoft liked to be that bullheaded.

                        firefox used to be good but is as bloated as IE so you may as well use IE.

                        If you want speed and no frills and are on dial up, opera is the answer.

                        http://www.opera.com/

                        Its fast as can be, you can stick it on a usb drive and run it its so small.

                        Some of you with browser issues will like opera , its all meat and no potatoes.

                          Go here:

                          C:\Documents and Settings\[your windows login name here]\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\qfehcahh.default

                          and look for "bookmarks.bak." Rename it "bookmarks.htm" and you're back in business. If for some reason that file is not present, go one folder further down, to....

                          C:\Documents and Settings\[your windows login name here]\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\qfehcahh.default\boo kmarkbackups

                          and there you'll find a series of backups. Copy the latest one to the folder where the bookmarks are supposed to reside, and rename it "bookmarks.htm" .

                          Or just do a windows search for "bookmarks," and it will find them all even if your directory structure is a little different from what I posted here.
