    Default Flushing the cache

    For the last week or so I've had a problem when attempting to stream 'FoxNewsGo'. There was no problem with 'Fox News Streaming (third party sites)' or any of the other news outlets. A quick Google showed that I wasn't alone, as others were/are having the same problem.

    As with so many IE problems they can become exasperating, and the fix itself usually turns out to be a simple one; "why didn't I think of that before". A little research and I found this:

    From W10's 'Search programs and files' enter ipconfig /flushdns. Also, another supposedly quick remedy is to invoke CTRL F5 while the browser is open, but I can't vouch for that one. Bottom line is it works fine now.

    Forgive the humour ....

    I think in the last year or two many people have been having problems with Fox News.

    And I hear it's getting worse.

    At least they offer both sides of an issue.

    The odd thing is that those are completely different things, the first forces the DNS cache to be cleared, the second is merely refreshing the page (CTRL-R will do the same thing).

    Another thing, why are you using IE? At the very least I'd say use Edge instead. MS is in the throes of killing off IE, and are probably not keeping it all that secure. Edge actually rival Chrome and Firefox for security and performance from what I understand.

    That, my friend, is debatable, but not with me. I prefer to keep my online interactions civil and conflict free.

    That is a real mouthful.
    If you're looking for DS/DD or DS/HD 3" or 5" floppy disks, PM me. I've got some new, used, and factory over-labeled disks for sale.

    I'm not, that was just an inclusive term. I use Chrome and if I had to use Edge I might consider giving up browsing. That and Cortana.

    Not every issue has two sides, though. Beware the balance fallacy.

    Now we know who watches PBS and who watches ...

    (To make it clear I'm just trying to be funny, I must point out that I do not watch TV.)
    Be polite and I may let you live.
