Dear HELPER,
Today, as I was viewing on "YouTube" a baptismal
hymn, I received a notice: "Access is no longer available to your account."  Wassup?

Hi Pastor Langford, I just checked the Google Apps dashboard, and all services are enabled for all Ecunet accounts, without any limitations.

If you are still having trouble accessing a video, please send me the link (in a private note) and I'll take a look.

Thanks, Paul

Couple of people reported trouble Sunday (Jan. 13) in accessing Ecunet at all, but I must have missed the trouble-time.  Everything working all right?

Hi Houston, something has been going on lately. I changed the login prompt on www.ecunet.org, so it should work more reliably.

 

To log in directly to Ecunet email, people can go to http://mail.google.com (for this approach, your FULL Ecunet address is needed, e.g. houston...@ecunet.org

 

To log in directly to Ecunet groups, go to http://groups.ecunet.org  (once again, for this prompt, you probably need your full address).

 

I hope this information helps.  Warm regards, Paul

Another one having problems longing in Paul.  We keep getting messages on my alternate computer and my wife's computer that they can't find ecunet.org.  On my wife's I've been able to get her on by going through a lengthy log in process where you manually have to enter ecunet.org and then get to a web page where you have to go through the sign in each time.  My main computer I can access simply by clinking on ecunet in favorites.  What's up??

Hi John, all I can think is that some of the early URLs we were using for Ecunet logins are no longer valid with the transition to the new web interface.

 

When you logged in with your favorite, where did you end up? (e.g. MyGroups, or your Ecunet email)

 

If you want to log in and start using the Ecunet groups web interface, then use http://groups.ecunet.org as your favorite.

 

If you want to go right to your Ecunet email, then use http://mail.google.com

 

I hope that helps, Paul

Paul,

I decided to log into the website since I hadn't done so before the changes.  I was surprised that I did not have to sign in.

I went to my profile to add a picture, plus some other info.  I unchecked the box that gave permission for Google to use me in adds.  But when I tried to save the profile, I was told that I had to add a couple of things.  So I did, and it saved.

But then I wondered whether Google had put back the check mark in that box about ads.  So I tried to get back to that screen.  However, I can't get there.  I can edit my profile, but not from that screen.  How can I find out whether I have inadvertently given Google permission to use my info in ads, and if so, change it?

When I use "Favorites" on my main computer I go right to the groups page and can go on from them.  On the wife's and my backup we end up with an error message saying ecunet.org can't be found.  Will try your suggestiongs
 
I think the problem is on Google because at the office the parish email is Gmail and I'm having some similar problems there.

I ain't Paul, and I'm definitely not a EcuNet/Google expert, but if
it were me I'd make sure that my DNS cache and HOSTS files didn't have
any erroneous information in them for EcuNet.org.

Hi Val, when you are logged in to Ecunet mail or Ecunet Groups you should see your Ecunet address listed in the upper right-hand corner of the screen (labeled “A” in the graphic below and attached).

 

If you pull down the little control in the far upper right (labeled “B”), the menu should appear that allows you to edit your Account information (labeled “C”) or your View profile (labeled “D”)

 

 

I’m sorry, I haven’t been able to find the setting you are referring to (allowing Google to use your info in ads). There are additional settings related to email that you can see when you are in gmail and you pull down the Gear symbol in the upper right and select “Settings.”

 

Paul

Paul,

I have been to both Edit and Account Settings, but I will try again.  This box about allowing info to be used in Google ads was in the screen where I added info about my gender and age, and where I added a picture.  I originally unchecked the box, but when I hit "update" I got an error message because I hadn't entered my year of birth.  I did that and hit "update" again, but I didn't notice whether Google had rechecked that box.  When I go to Edit, I am not taken back to that original screen but to another one where I can change each item individually.  But I will do what you suggest and see if I can find that option.

Thanks.

I don't find re-loggin to be a problem.

I also use Yahoo!  Even though I have a save feature, it periodically asks me to enter my password to re-login.  

The same with ecunet.  They ask less frequently.  I do it.  No big deal.

It used to be that every now and then IMAP would not deliver my Ecunet mail until I went to the website and logged in.  That hasn't happened in a very long time.  [Knocking on wood]

Nope.  Apparently that box is a onetime thing.

It looks as though Google is trying to compete with Facebook, with its "extended circles" and all.  Being on Facebook is enough social media for me.  I want Ecunet to be for me what it was in the past - a place for interesting groups and community with the people in them.

I agree. However, Ecunet is not what it used to be.  We have lost so many people.

I occasionally visit "ELCA Clergy" on Facebook.  Interesting topics--but they start and stop so quickly. No extended topics.  Too many people.

Greetings.
I am sorry to say you have lost one more participant when my husband,
Glenn Cooper, died very suddenly on Jan. 9. I have not yet cancelled his
e-mail addresses as I want to make sure I am not missing any critical
information.

Glenn enjoyed the Ecunet community over the many years he was involved
in it.

Peace,

Greetings in the Lord Messiah Jesus to Iona MacLean!
                   
While I do not remember corresponding with your husband, I
can appreciate your desire not to throw away any critical infor-
mation. That is essential for a well-formed memory of a dearly
loved family member. It strikes me that he and I may have con-
versed/chatted over the name MacLean. My paternal grandmother's mother's name was Jean McLean. She was from the west coastal area of Scotland.
                          
This clumsy machine cannot produce the diaeresis mark she used
to use under the "c" as a
part of her signature. We talked, if I'm
remembering aright, that custom of abbreviating "mac" meaning
"son of," and other tidbits about Scots immigrants in the early
1800s. That was long before ecunet was associated with google.
                            
May our Savior God Jesus grant you heart's ease and refreshment
as you pursue happy and significant memories of your husband. May he rest in peace, and may you have joy in remembering our
Redeemer's resurrection!
                           
Picture
May you rejoice in the Messiah's resurrection, now and always!

Help, help!  When I log onto this site, I get only part of the groups I've joined -- don't find "Let's go to the Movies," for instance, and that's important to me.  What's happened?

Hello Houston, I just searched for movies, and found the group easily. If you are going to participate using the Groups web interface, may I recommend marking any groups you'd like to follow closely as "Favorites"?  That way, the group will appear in the left-hand column so you can easily see if there are unread notes.

You add the group to your "Favorites" list by clicking the little yellow star icon below the group name (see the attached screenshot ... I added the red arrow).

Let me know if you still have trouble finding your group, or if you are set up to participate in the group via email and don't think you are getting notes.

Warm regards, Paul

I've figured out part of the problem, but unearthed a bigger mystery by doing so. When I log in with Safari, the "official" macintosh browser (forged and supported by Apple) and access Ecunet Groups, I show up with only five groups of which I'm a member.  When I use Camino, an alternate (independently supported) browser, I show up with THIRTEEN groups, which is what I expected to see.  No rhyme or reason, that I can discern, as to why some are in and others not.  But I'm relieved to have the whole set back when I want them!  --Any clues about this, Paul?

Dear Houston, I don’t like to say this very often, but in this case I am clue-less. <g>

 

I’d be curious how things look when you use Chrome.  It’s the preferred browser, since it is in the Google family.

 

I’ve started using different browsers for different things lately. I use Firefox and a wonderful plugin called Gmail Manager to quickly and easily manage logins to four different Google “business” accounts, including Ecunet Helper.

 

For my home Google and Gmail account I use Chrome. This keeps home and “work” nicely separated, although on occasion I’ll be surprised at which account I’m logged into.

 

All that said, when I log in to Ecunet Groups, I see a consistent list of my Favorites on the left, and when I press “My Groups,” I see the same number of groups across Firefox, Chrome, IE and Safari for Windows.

 

You might want to go to each browser and clear your cache, in case for some reason a cookie isn’t set right, or something like that.

 

For people with multiple Google accounts, the other thing that occasionally happens is that you see different groups because you are actually logged into different accounts.

 

Good luck!  Paul

Paul, I've downloaded and installed Chrome, will try it for awhile -- I followed one of its prompts and loaded the booksmarks used by Safari, which may have been a mistake, since when I open Google Groups with Chrome, I get the same five groups shown me by Safari. Camino continues to list the 13 groups I think I'm a member of. When I try to add groups with Safari or Chrome, I run into those right away that require permission of the Group Manager to join.

Is there any reason that you don't have group notes sent via email?
