zb 420:

Good Question!

This time last year I was in the same boat regarding our sons. Every time one of them would stomp by, click! The the weather report web page came up. I say stomp cuz they are big, and never quiet abut anything. Then one day, #1 just "appeared" and I was busted! As a result, I told him why I was on the site. It was scary as shit believe me, but worth it in the end not having a secret in the house. #2 was told about me later last year as well, so everyone now knows.

I hope you can join me some time in not having a secret in the house.

In the meantime, I hope someone, maybe our Webmaster Nathan, can answer your question.

Jim

I agree, good question-
it's not all the time for me, but there have been plenty of times where i've had to hurry and scroll the page down so the logo's not visible, or minimize the window... i know they have "boss button" programs so people can play Freecell, etc. at work w/o getting caught; i might have a look-see and if i find a link to something useful, i'll reply again to this thread w/ the link.

I'm back... Well, this may not be the perfect solution, but it is freeware, and it does work (i just installed/tested it myself):
"Boss Key" download site
Hope this helps!

MM-
What the program does is to assign a certain key combination (like "Alt-Q" for example) to closing/hiding any open/active window(s) when you press it. To restore the window(s), just press the same key combination again, and it's back! Click on the link for a more detailed de>

I'm going to second the motion for a "non-logo" option in preferences, or at least from the pages that are not the home page. I mean it's really the discussion baords we're talking about here, right??

Suddenly changing the screen is pretty obvious to anyone with half a clue what you're doing, even though they might not know from what you've clicked away, they can work out it wasn't the aol homepage...and then of course there's when you're on the train or subway or whatever with either a laptop or mobile device, and ya just would prefer to not have to fiddle with hiding the top of the page from the guy next to you, regardless of whether he's your business partner, fellow commuter or whatever. I guess one could say, well to hell with them I don't know them, but ya know...

I agree. Especially when i was first coming to the webiste i had to always scroll down slightly so that the logo wasn't on the page, or keep minimising. Changing screens every time somebody walks in is obvious and just makes people suspicious. Even now i find myself scrolling down automatically to hide the logo when i click onto a new page because it became habit- even though now i don't care who sees what website i am on.

If there is a way of setting the preferences to hide the logo for times when you would prefer it not to be there than that would be great.
