Tools > Clear Private Data

That clears more than just the cache, it clears history among other things and it might even clear saved passwords.

From time to time we all need to clear our internet cache. One of the 1st things you want to do when having a problem with a site. If you are like me I forget how to do this when the time comes and have to dig around to find the option. During a recent support question from my ISP I was sent the following and thought I would pass it along.

Steps to clear this cache for Internet Explorer and Netscape Navigator are provided below.

Internet Explorer

   1. Open Internet Explorer.
   2. Find and click "Tools" on the menu bar.
   3. Select "Internet Options" from the drop-down menu.
   4. Under the heading "Temporary Internet files", click the button labeled "Delete Files...".
   5. Click "OK" to delete the files in the temporary cache.
   6. Click "OK" again to close the window.
   7. Close Internet Explorer and then restart the web browser.

Netscape Navigator

   1. Open Netscape.
   2. Select the "Edit" menu.
   3. Choose "Preferences" from the "Edit" menu.
   4. On the left-hand side of the box, click on the plus sign next to "Advanced" to expand the menu.
   5. From the expanded menu click and highlight "Cache" .
   6. On the right hand side click on the "Clear Disk Cache" button.
   7. Click on the "OK" button to continue.
   8. Click on the "OK" button at the bottom of the "Preferences" window to return to Netscape.

BTPS I agree with you 100% but many people are viewing our stores from work and many corporations and school districts filter the places their people can view. Actually when I retired from the school district it wasn't even the district itself that was doing the filtering but the state.

I only have one site that I sell on that I am considering hosting the photos on my own site because the site brands my pictures which I don't like, again if I'm worried about someone using my photos I will watermark them myself.

Now if I am paying for internet access such as at home I want access to all of it, I'll decide what I don't want to see and will also do my own spam filtering.

What an interesting place.  Did add one of my stores to see if it shows up in Google Anayltics

Maybe the radar screens that they use are in Braille   :0240

We should compare notes down the line!

Those numbers didn''t sound right and when I opened an account there and got strange numbers I did a little test to come up with why so I could share with you all.

We can certainly compare notes all I have to do is get off my a** and stock the ec store and start promoting it,

I gotta be candid and say that I detect a certain hostility toward BISI in some quarters and that may be well founded (as a comparative newbie I'm not aware of any past problems).  If it is, I'd appreciate knowing about it so I can position my little business accordingly.  My experience with them has been quite positive overall. 

Don't  get me wrong I like BiSi I just wish that I had the same traffic there that I do at ec. I don't sell the same products at both but I have to say I do MUCH better at ec. I am in the process of doing some expermenting, I just opened a new store at ec where I will be selling the same tyep products that I have at my BISI store but not the same items. Might be interesting.

After a little research I think I know why your is showing such low up time for ec is that ec has theie server set to not respond to pings and that is how is dertermining the up time. It sends a series of ping packets every so often and collects the results and uses them for their reports.

33% uptime, 0% uptime - not a good look. 

Your showing stats for eCrater but not for BISI and the descussion was about Google Base not uptime. I made my statement because it seems every other day there are reports about items not showing on GB at BiSi not hearing the sameabout EC.

With all the problems BISI is having due to too many Google Base violations my stuff doesn't come up in google at all - in either of my stores.

I thought that after our items were uploaded to our own accounts that the problems as a whole were taken care of, so has the problem returned again?

I'm loosing faith in BISI

Doesn't really fall into the free category. The basic (trial option) is free for 10 items and after 10 sales you must upgrade. There is also a transaction fee that varies with the plan.

I did like the looks of the site and the features, most if not all of them are also available at BISI, some of the options at BISI are at a monthly cost which is $4.95 so it's cheaper.

Now it seems that BISI has it's Google Base problems solved by using individual accounts it's probably a better deal.

You can also go directly to and pick a city and place your add. I just placed one for a car I have for sale and also included a link to my store.

Leave it to the news to get things right. The earthquake was Friday morning 4/18/08 at approx 4:30 am CDT not sure how far west it was felt but we are about 150 miles west and it shook our house. There was another one about 10:30 am CDT that was a 4.6 magnitude.

From the news around here the damage was pretty minor, I mostly saw mostly pictures of cracks. The did show a house close to the center that the porch fell off and the steeple of an old church was a nice size crack in it.
Well bummer, I remembered and it was cancelled. Hope to see you next week if I don't forget.

I wrote to down but then I forgot where I put the paper it was written on     :017
