The Lake Chapala Mac Users Club meets every third Wednesday in the Sala room. Not sure where that is, but it is posted on the Ajijic City Guide Calendar

They could probably help you

Just so you know, for some reason every time I visit your city guide site my computer whirs and clicks away like crazy while I am looking at the site. It makes me nervous that it sounds like the site is cycling thru my computers' innards. So I do go there, ever.

I'm sorry about the clicking but it happens whenever the page refreshes.

Here's what it is and a solution to the problem. I do hope they issue a patch on day. Hope this solution helps.
Internet Explorer Clicking Sound…
Many websites that have been designed to continuously monitor specific events use an automatic refresh to ensure the most recent data is visible. This is usually accomplished either through a REFRESH META tag in the HTML header, or by using JavaScript to set an elapsed time after which the page is refreshed. Other more complicated and sometimes less desirable methods use Flash or Java applets to continuously access data directly from the database.

An often annoying side effect is that Microsoft Internet Explorer (at least on Windows platforms) makes a clicking sound at every refresh, the same sound made when clicking a hyperlink or pressing a form button. Refreshing a web page every five seconds could become the modern-day equivalent of Chinese water torture.

To remove the sound, open your Control Panel. On Windows 95/98/2000, doubleclick on the “Sounds and Multimedia” icon and choose the “Sounds” tab. On Windows XP, doubleclick the “Sounds and Audio Devices” icon and choose the “Sounds” tab. On Windows NT, just doubleclick the “Sounds” icon. From here, the instructions are the same for each of the above operating systems. Scroll down in the “Sound Events” window until you reach the “Windows Explorer” section. In this section there is a “Start Navigation” option to assign sounds to. In the “Name” Drop down menu select “None” and then hit “OK”.

How about Microsoft's present operating system, you know Windows Vista? What do you do there?

Just giving you a bad time Smile. I don't have a problem with either Windows Vista or XP(SP2).

It looks like someone moved your string to Technical Mexico. It wasn't me, but, of course you are very welcome here. Things have been a little slow here the last month, so I am glad it was moved here.

Gosh, I just read what I posted. How boring.

Hi Johanson

My operating systems haven't given me problems either, but I have personally heard it on others. Wish I could design this page with a mac, but it's not compatible. Drat.

Here is the solution for Vista OS for those who need it.
