Where did my newsletter go? Yahoo mail

Just realized that I haven't been getting the newsletter for about 2-3 months now.  Using Yahoo, searched the spam folder with no luck.  When I try to sign up using the box at the bottom of the page it says "Invalid email address" even though this is the address that I've been receiving it at for years.

YAHOO ! The NYC trip is BACK ON !

I just got the message today (peaked at my work email, since I was off yesterday) and they have found ANOTHER WAY ! This is going to be GREAT! I haven't done a lot of venturing outside my immediate area for a long LONG time (mainly due to my wife's condition). She does not want to go with me mostly because of fear but I can't let that prevent me from having the experience. She will be ok that day visiting her sister, etc. while I am in NYC ...

Why is yahoo appearing without an internet connection?

I recently picked up an old computer from the dump and it powers up and works fine, but i found out that the anti virus software xoftspy is fake software that does nothing (not virus though). I uninstalled it and i began to suspect that there was a virus on the computer because it said that a windows update was just downloaded and that norton was installed, but it wasn't. I opened up internet explorer and i found that it opened to even though there was no internet. another strange thing was that the copyright said 2004. Is this usual if the site was frequently visited? Specs. Windows xp Professional AMD proccessor 400 mhz 20 gigabyte hdd maxtor 600 mb ram no anti virus

Instructables and Yahoo! Hack Day in London

To celebrate the launch of Hack Day London, Instructables has created a Hack Day group to hold what we're hoping will be some exciting yet to be demonstrated hacks, tools, and tricks. To kick things off, we've thrown in a few Instructables that we thought exemplified the Hack Day spirit.More information is available on the hack day site or the hack day blog, but the short gist is that it's this Saturday and Sunday at Alexandra Palace in London. It's sponsored by the BBC and Yahoo! There will be prizes, and some interesting speakers.I know Instructables has a big UK contingent, so if any of you feel like stopping by for a day or two of serious computing, I'm sure you'll be welcomed.

How do I send a 125mb mpeg file thru yahoo email that only allows a 25mb file?

I sometimes take videos on my digital camera, but when I want to send them as an attachment on email, yahoo! limits my attachment to a 25mb file. So how do I do this? My videos are 2 -3 minutes each, but when I check how big they are, they're usually 125-180mb. I'm not very tech-minded, so explain in detail. Thanks.

Does anyone here know about vintage hats/caps?

You know those caps they had back in the 20s and 30s, the ones where the top would kinda hang out over the bill, kinda like the one in the pic, but not exactly. Well, does anybody know how to make one? If you can make one, then please post an I'ble, 'cause I've been needing one for a while and can't find any. By the way, the one on the right is sideways, incase of any confusion. I was kicked off of Yahoo! Answers today. I never realized how much of a slave I was to them. You Instructables people are smarter. I am leaving Yahoo! I have switched over to my Gmail account, and I'm happy. I've asked about this cap on Yahoo, and never got an answer. But you guys/gals are smarter and craftier, and I can actually go a good while on here without calling someone an idiot, unlike Yahoo. Well, have fun crocheting, knitting or sewing a cap from the long ago(if you'd like to).

I use Vista on a desktop and Yahoo for my email and Firefox 9.1 for my browser. When I click on a web page to send the link, for example "", what it sends is "; ". I have tried using Hotmail and Internet Explorer browser and have the same problem. I realize something is substituting %3A%2F%2F for ://.  This seemed to have started about a year ago maybe when there was an upgrade to Foxfire.    I tried everything on the Foxfire help pages and that didn't help.  Does anyone know how to correct this.

OPENDNS is blocking access to streamsend links in your mailings

The OPENDNS DNS lookup and anti-phishing service I've used for the last few years has suddenly  decided that the streamsend redirected links in the Instructables weekly newsletters are an attempt at phishing.  I am able to access the instructables web site directly, but I can't follow links from your emails any more. I receive the weekly newsletter through Yahoo email. My older Instructables newsletters that I was previously able to read are having their streamsend links blocked too. This is a problem between streamsend and OPENDNS.  However, Instructables is affected by this if they're a customer of streamsend.
