Not having it is a minor thing. If it helps avoid the insecure warning, I'd leave it be.

I can't say for sure that the new icon has disappeared for me too, because I've just read all the latest posts so I wouldn't expect to see it. But I'll assume it's disappeared for everybody.

It probably results from a recent change I made in the way the Forum Latest panel is generated. The process of getting the information is more indirect than it used to be, to try to avoid "insecure connection" messages in some browsers, as discussed in another thread. I'll see if I can get it back.

It's not just you, T. I'm not seeing it either.

I no longer see a 'New' flag in the Forum Latest section when I'm signed in (either site) even though I'm logged into the Forum when I click on a link. Several things have changed since it last worked (Firefox & newly installed OS), so I'm not sure if it is just me or something happening to others.

I stumbled across another easy recipe.

I have been experimenting with an electric pressure cooker.  It cost a bit more than expected, but it's worth the money (even if you already have a stove-top pressure cooker).  The electric ones have built-in safety features such as an automatic cutoff when either the pressure or the temperature pass a limit. 

They also have timers; you can set it up to start cooking later in the day, cook for X amount of time, and turn itself off.  The meal can be ready to eat when you walk in the door.  Be careful with this; you still need to be careful about food safety.  You don't want meat to lay around at room temperature for 4 hours before it starts cooking.

Yesterday's recipe:
1/2 cup dried black beans
1/2 cup dried pinto beans
1 medium onion, chopped coarse
1 cup canned salsa
2 tbs cajun spice
1 piece tasso, cubed (about 1.5 cm or a half inch)
2 cups water

Throw into pot, stir, set to pressure cook for 45 minutes.

Serve with cornbread or corn muffins (last night we just used Jiffy corn meal muffins).

Complain to Alan that tasso is still not considered a word.

For a vegetarian option, you can leave out the tasso.  This has plenty of protein without it, but the tasso gives it a nice smokey flavor with some ham flavor.  If you leave it out, try adding a little liquid smoke.

These pressure cookers are great with dried beans.  You don't need to start soaking the beans the night before.  These days, the stores only carry dried beans that have been washed and sorted (no dirt or gravel).  Just throw them into the pressure cooker, using twice as much liquid as beans.

The default setting for beans on my pressure cooker is 40 minutes (push the button that says "beans").  It's a little better if you increase this to 45 minutes.

No doubt others can find better variations on this.  Feel free to add green peppers, celery, carrots, or whatever else inspires you.  I just threw together stuff we had laying around, and the other veggies had gone bad.

Next time I will have to make a larger batch; we do not have enough leftovers.

Thank you Alan.

As you suggested, it's perfectly fine if I go straight to without visiting Not secure first.

Problem solved.  Cheesy

That's puzzling, Rosetta. The only thing I can think of that might be a factor is that people have had difficulties if Chihuahua is open in another browser tab. Admittedly, this didn't cause the sort of problem you describe, but I'm grasping at straws! Try shutting down any tabs containing Chi, then in a new tab go directly to and see how that works out.

Hi Alan

I decided to switch to after reading the discussions about security. My profile was still automatically logged in at the alternative site, but for some reason  'List by plays' was not operating. I clicked the red 'List by plays' option, and the box containing the word list popped up as normal. However, when I clicked the 'x' in the top right corner to close the box, the site switched back to "Not secure". I tried this several times with exactly the same result.

Do I need to clear cookies, or is it something else?
