    Maybe Padraig and co could put this thread into a techy help category..


    PC Maintenance
    I’ve been working with computers for over 25 years in my previous job I use to build them from scratch, before the recession hit I was self employed as a call out technician for the home user, In my experience the biggest issue with home computers is the numerous complaints “my pc is so so slow”
    I will list a few simple steps on how to rectify that problem and help keep your pc in tip top shape…

    Number one overheating
    Your pc is a small vacuum cleaner fact!when you switch on your pc your internal fans start to spin to keep the pc and its processor cool which is all good, the negative of this is when fans spins they suck air so in doing so they will suck all the dust from your home into the computer, as heat builds it is a magnet for static and dust to collect and clog the fans and any metal object that is warm, this creates an insulation layer on top of any part that gets warm, the more dust the more layers the hotter every component gets thus leading to slower response time and eventually overheating.
    The solution is quite simple open the pc (all power leads disconnected) and blow all the dust away clean the fans and pay special attention to the fan and heat sink on the processor these are easily removed and cleaned, you can either use a small paint brush and vacuum or you can buy a small tin of compressed air from a local diy shop, if you are using compressed air please note take the pc outside as the dust will go everywhere..Some before and after pics of what a pc should look like inside…

    Number two temp files and defragmenting..
    Hard drives in pc’s get clogged up over the years with a lot of stuff we don’t need they also write and rewrite over the space on them which can cause slow response time ..the solution is to defrag the hard drive at least every 6 months and to clean all those temp files a very handy bit of software that I use is temp file cleaner available for free here (http://www.geekstogo.com/forum/files/file/187-tfc-temp-file-cleaner-by-oldtimer/) .

    Number three security and virus protection..
    I have used three pieces of software for the past 8 years or so and frankly with these three on your pc you won’t need anything else in my opinion the big named software companies are rubbish and in fact corrupt so get rid of them .. links to the software that I trust and use below they are all free
    http://www.avira.com/en/index (antivirus)
    http://www.malwarebytes.org/lp/lp4/?gclid=COv2ha2dyrcCFWfItAodv30Agw (malware)
    http://www.brightfort.com/spywareblaster.html (spyware)

    Number four last but not least…

    As mentioned before flush the dns so that old web pages bookmarks are refreshed,,
    Open a command box and type ipconfig/flushdns
    Close the command box by typing exit..

    All of this in my opinion will keep your pc in tip top condition, any questions just ask..

    Yes, you are a genius, Padraig. Can someone answer me this please?
    Suddenly on this forum, when a video is being posted I am just getting a black screen and I can't figure out why. I can see videos on Utube for instance, but not here.

    Hope, I sympathize from experience! 5 months ago this suddenly happened to me with my tablet. I was released from this 'bug' a few weeks ago when for other reasons I finally allowed FireFox (my default browser on my tablet ) to install the latest version.

    So perhaps you are using an out of date browser version. And its out of dateness has caught up with you.

    Hi Hope it could be a number of reasons, without knowing what browser you use its hard to suggest a fix, sometimes videos don’t play on forums because the original video on youtube has been deleted or moved,in that case it will never play..

    Here are a few suggestions

    If you have or had real player installed on your pc I would suggest re installing it..

    If you access the motherofgod web site via a bookmark I would suggest accessing the site via a google search and then bookmarking it again, sometimes when sites are upgraded old cache files are left in users bookmarks..

    Clear all your temporary files and history in your browser…

    As I said it’s hard to know exactly a solution for you until I would know what browser and operating system you are using ..

    My computer crashed a few months ago and my son put in Internet Explorer 8 which I checked to upgrade and they said I was using the latest browser I E 8 for windows XP. I installed Real Player and am still getting black screens for the videos on this site. This site only, I can watch videos on all other sites. It must have to do with the upgrade that Padraig said they were doing to this site, because it just happened in the last few days on this site. It's a Dell computer. Maybe I'm blacklisted:LOL:

    I cleared history, temp files, cookies ect., ran spybot, reggistry cleaner{eusing} defrager, still nothing in videos but a black screen. Don't know how to untick? the fav website, but someone else has favs on it so I best not do that. I just will have to live with no videos on this site, I guess, till I can get a visit from some one to look at it. Thank you for all your help!:)

    No Problem Hope but from what you describe I am convinced that this site is saved in your bookmarks/Favourites and that's what the problem is, there are no restrictions on watching videos from your online profile on this site unless Padraig has a button that he can switch on or off ..It would do no harm to install firefox and try that instead of using explorer

    To pm someone on this site? Just pass your mouse over the inbox at the top of the screen and a box-conversations- will show up. It says- start a conversation, click on it and when you get it, type in the person's name that you want to start a conversation with and start talking:)

    Hey, act the mother superior you want to be :). And explain to the owner of the pc, there is no reason for there not to be BOTH on the pc.(I have the full set: IE - which i hate and can think that no one who has used any of the other browsers would ever return to , Firefox, Google Crome, and Opera!

    As concession to owner let IE8 be the default browser untill you can teach (him) the error of his ways.
    All you need is to have the Firefox icon on your desktop for YOU to click on.

    Hi John,
    I know, I must have missed something and thank you in advance for your explanation.
    I don't understand a current phenomenon on a particular thread. Can you please help!

    In the thread......."The Tribulation is Upon us". I posted a question and there has been subsequent posts but they are not now available.

    I was able to save 2 of these subsequent posts but the thread now seems to be locked/closed; is this the case?


    If so ...It does not say this on the site but I believe this may have happened.

    I was able to save just 2 of the posts that have disappeared on this thread, they are below.


    The first post I was able to save is from Padraig! it is below......



    Lynne, I grow confused, you mentioned someone you introduced to the forum as a Catholic priest? Can I ask who he is?:)

    Is it Daniel 9 7 and are you quite sure he is a priest?
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The other post that I was able to save was from Edras

    padraig said: ↑
    I thought I would share some Signs that we have entered the Fullness of the Tribulation is a series of Posts. If anyone out there would like to share Signs that they themselves have recognised in a Spirit of Discernment you are very welcome to do so.

    I will try to place these in order of importance.

    But the first big question to ask is, what exactly if the Tribulation?

    Well Jesus , I think described it best:

    Matthew 24:21

    The Abomination of Desolation
    …20Pray that your flight will not occur in the winter or on the Sabbath. 21For at that time there will be great tribulation, unmatched from the beginning of the world until now, and never to be seen again. 22If those days had not been cut short, nobody would be saved. But for the sake of the elect, those days will be cut short.…

    ...see also:

    Daniel 12:1

    Michael's Deliverance and the End Times
    1At that time Michael, the great prince who stands watch over your people, will rise up. There will be a time of distress such as never has occurred from the beginning of nations until then. But at that time your people— everyone whose name is found written in the book— will be delivered. 2And many who sleep in the dust of the earth will awake, some to everlasting life, but others to shame and everlasting contempt.…


    Click to expand...
    I feel we experience some signs and parts of the Tribulation. Whether we are literally in the last 3.5 years before the coming of Jesus Christ, I think rather not. But that doesn't mean we do not have "antichrists" in the world today, as both John and Jesus talk about in plural, and John says many antichrists are already among us.

    I can't have the time to read all the posts in this thread. And if I write, it is to share my insight on the coming Great Warning and Refuges. Much has been talked online, by authentic as well as unproven seers, and by countless catholics who do their best to decode and help others. For example, one usual topic is how the multitudes will convert after the Great Warning.

    I think the conversions might be in the range of tens, hundreds of millions but not billions. Because if it was so, then there would be no need of Chastisement. And today it is more clear than ever that the world heads towards a terrible Chastisement on high speed. Whether planetary or man made war or both.

    Even people from everyday life, relatives, who behaved "good" recently, started becoming arrogant, thinking they are all right and better, and outright attacking those who try to keep the faith and the life in God. Whether most of these hidden evil people declare themselves to be atheists or agnostic, or some are catholics everyday in the Church, their presence is visible and cannot be denied. It is not the usual sins that everyone of us bears and will struggle with all our lives. It is an attack against the meekness and humility, against the piety and after all, against the Love of God itself (the Holy Spirit). It varies in forms but it is right here around us everyday. It may be employer who benefited from your work, it may be someone whom you trusted and helped and who turns on you. The purpose is the meek God-fearing people to be led to despair.

    I don't believe all those evil people, hidden before and now acting overtly, will simply "convert". No, we are living among many people who will perish tomorrow, even though today they have the money and the social status. Whether they will save their souls in the last moment, it is not I to say, it is God to judge. But they are not among the ones who will inherit the earth in the era of peace. I'd wish they are converted, but frankly not at the expense of myself going into despair and losing the gift of the Holy Love of God. Because if THAT is THEIR PURPOSE, it is no more reasonable to seek their conversion, rather let them perish in a way they have chosen themselves.

    In that way, in a meaning of decisiveness of the times we are living in, yes we are experiencing the Tribulation. While no one knows the day or the hour, we live through the Tribulation, and the words of Jesus Christ are very relevant to us today:
    Matthew 24:32 "If those days had not been cut short, no one would survive, but for the sake of the elect those days will be shortened."

    Notice, it is no more said, for the sake of the conversion of the sinners, of the enemies of God and so on. Rather, for the sake of God's elect ones. Because otherwise it is they who will perish, and not only physically but also spiritually. Therefore, as John's apocalypse ends with the words, Maranatha, Lord Jesus! Be it a personal coming, an intermediate coming St Bernard talks about (called also Eucharistic, societal, era of peace) or the Final Coming. Perhaps, if it is not the hour of the Last Coming, rather coming in Mercy for those who will choose it (as St Faustina says) then it may be different from our expectations. But we will be surprised in either way :)

    Revelation 22:17
    The Spirit and the bride say, “Come!” And let the one who hears say, “Come!” Let the one who is thirsty come; and let the one who wishes take the free gift of the water of life.
    20 He who testifies to these things says, “Yes, I am coming soon.”Amen. Come, Lord Jesus.
