Shouldnt there be a time limit on editing posts, like 30 min.? We have no idea what the cowboy removed from his posts

thats because once i found out the power companys automated sub stations caused it when they came on for more power or went off from excess power, and caused a spike or drop which caused the apc unit software to trigger something that caused it to shut down the program using the most power which was monkey.
i decided to remove the message saying that monkey was cutting off for no reason and must have an error.
i sent lowlander a pm telling him this and to remove this message.
he came back with a smartallic sounding reply? but maybe one of the other mods will remove it before anyone else gets to wondering like you did.

I thought you said that MediaMonkey closed down suddenly, but you made it sound like the computer remained on. Either...
1) The whole computer was switching off, in which case power supply was the obvious answer
2) Only MediaMonkey was disappearing, in which case this could not be to do with power, absolutely no way.

No need to remove the post. Even though it doesn't describe a problem with MediaMonkey it describes a problem that happened. It could be of value to other users.
Changing the title might be useful as it's a rather dramatic title.
PS. I'm against deleting things from a forum becuase it's felt to be of no value. All content has it's value.

I think he has APC Powerchute software set to terminate certain programs when the UPS goes to battery. He also should have it log the event so it is clear what is happening.
. That computer was rode hard indeed.

Ok, I stand corrected. But still, if you've got software switching off other software, why blame MediaMonkey?

I blame the spiders

I moved the topic for you RovingCowboy.

Sorry, I moved it to Off Topic - I didn't know you'd asked Lowlander
to move it, I just thought it needed moving. I'm not sure this is really "News" though!

the musical mods and musicl posts of all posts?
no need to be sorry trixmoto. just surpised me to see it was moved twice
i did not ask lowlader to move it he did that when he read the post where i said i was going to move it, he did not see it was already moved either.
but in this form of thread it is not news it looks more like a busted report thread. i was going to redo a new thread here and clear it all up but instead
i just redid the first message in this thread to clear it up.
