Hi David Edwards2.    Using the MyHobbyStore website, there is no list of back issues available.   You just order  ?no of back issues and tell them the numbers in the comment box, as David Clark 1 says.      If they are not available you will get an email offering you copies of specific articles copied from the master copy.    Then it's best to phone/they will phone and you can sort it out that way.    May be best to phone in the first place, indeed, if you like talking to charming ladies then this is the way to go.
Sexist? - not me.

Hi,
   I have just tried to enter the back issues area only to be told that its for subscribers only
I have been a subscriber for a number of years
 
I entered my details including the subscription number when I first joined the web site, so why won't it let me in?
Looking at the box where you enter your number - it doesn't let you enter the full number and so I have left off the first couple of zero's
 
any help please

Hi There
Enter the 8 digit code where the ***** are.
Ignore the 2 leading00s and everything from the R inclusive
00********R MEW153
In other words enter the numbers where the
********
are.

Ok now I'm confused
 
I typed in the 8 digit number in the box maked Subscrition number for MEW as I do not subscribe to the other one
I typed just the 8 numbers missing off the first 2 zero's it won't allow any more digits to be typed
saved it and it didn't make the blind bit of difference
 
Help

Although I had entered my subscriber number when the website first started, I could'nt  access the back issues when they were put on.    When I went back to personal details and entered the number again then it worked fine.

Re Ian S C's report of the problem with the "Old lathe chuck" posting.
I could read it (Or part of it.) using Firefox 3.5.7 but not with IE8 or Opera.
I tried adding another reply using Firefox. With Firefox I could see this reply but with IE8 I could not. (I did not try using Opera as this is on a different plug in disk drive.) I suspect
there is some hidden character in the third reply that is causing the problem.
I think if the web master could delete this reply it may solve the problem.
Les.

Hi David,
                 I can see that you have managed  to delete what was the third reply. The problem now seems to have moved to just after the last character of my test reply. The bottom slightly darker grey box which normally contains "Message members" etc is missing.
This is using IE8. Using Firefox  it looks OK
Les.

Hi David,
                   Yes it looks like you have fixed the problem. I have not tried adding a test post but the box to enter the text is now there as is the button to post it.
I imagine problems like must eat into your time. I suspect it was not as simple as just hitting a delete button somewhere.
Les.

Should I be getting two different foremats at random times, it does'nt worry me just curious. The normal format has the adds on the right side, and is the one I prefer.The second has large print, but its not so easy to find the log on box for example.Ian S C

Whe  you have large format have you tried [Ctrl+scroll] to change/reduce the format to normal?

Kwil, the lay out of the two formats is totally different,they don't look related to one another apart from the fact that all the information is the same.I don't know much about computers,Iknow were Ctrl is, butscroll, is there a key for that? I tried clicking on the scroll bar on screen. Ian S C

Ian,
 
Scroll is the roller on top of some mice , the [ctrl+scroll] allows you to change magnification.

     I have had this too, also at random.  It usually reverts ( perhaps"pops"
   would a better word ) to normal after a second or so but sometimes it
   lasts for a whole session
