      How do I disable the Firefox ad blocker for just this site?
      1. Wendell
        Wendell
        That depends on what ad blocker you are using.

        If you are using Adblock Plus, you click the Adblock icon, then click "disable for this site". If you are using uBlock Origin, you click the uBlock icon then click the big power icon.

        For other ad blockers, I don't know because I've not used any others. But I suspect they'd be similar to the above, or you might be able to go into that blocker's settings to whitelist the URL.

      Hey Wendell, I was born in 1900, could I change my birthday so i feel younger. I was thinking August 1954. (I am kind of surprised you can't change it in your profile.) Is this the appropriate place to request this?

        Ok, it has been changed to August 1954. Are you sure you don't want me to change it to 1978 or something?

      WHERE do you find your User No.?
      1. Wendell
        Wendell
        Just visit your profile and look at the address bar of your browser. Find your username shown there, then look at the number immediately following the period after your username. For example, when I look at my own profile, I look up at the URL and it is https://rplstoday.com/community/members/wendell.1, so my user number is 1.

      I would like to change my call sign to my real name as my current call sign might seem offensive to some, even though in my part of the world Florida Crackers are nothing more than old Florida surveyors for the most part. Is there anyway to change my profile name, or do I need to create a new profile and start from scratch?

        Brian, it is true that cowboys and ranchers in Florida are known as Crackers too. That region of the country is where the cowhands carry bull whips. I went to Madison Florida about 10 years ago to a colt starting event and met a few of you Crackers.

      Is there a way to search members based on what state they are licensed? I see each individual if I click one at a time. If so, i'm having trouble finding it.

      1Q

      Where is your donation button hidden?

      1 Enhancement?

      Given the board now has posters from around the world. Why do you not under your US state license page have a button after the states with " other places" so Licensed Surveyors around the world can add their state and country. Also a box for all posters to add the year they gained license.

      Wendell, you have mentioned a few things regarding Windows 10.
      A question I have is if a computer has current virisus/malware/ etc.,
      when you do the upgrade will the virisus come with it or be left behind.
      1. Wendell
        Wendell
        It will likely come along with it, but it depends. If it has infected a Windows system file, the upgrade might actually replace it with a clean one. However, some viruses/malware are smart enough to not allow that to happen and may block the overwrite. I would try to get it as clean as possible before upgrading.

      I'm nearly 115yrs old so be gentle with me.
      If you REALLY want to earn a tip you could change my birthday to Oct. 7th 1961.
      Thanks.
      P.S. Love what you've done with the place, it feels so... homey.

      Like the new update Wendell, very nicely done. The only problem I had getting on was I longer have the e-mail I used for my original account, so I couldn't do the password reset. Any possible way to get my old info merged into this new account?

      Man, I can practically reset passwords for users in my sleep with this new software. It used to keep me awake!

    Wendell was a Land Surveyor for 26 years, then moved on to building websites for his second career. But he never lost sight of the surveying community and the other disciplines related to surveying. He’s purposely stayed involved in the surveying industry because he has always been — and will continue to be — a Land Surveyor at heart.
