As most of you are aware, we had a crash to forums and were down for over two days a while back. We did have to do an upgrade to the vbulletin software to fix the forums and that has created changes, VB no longer provide the hybrid or threaded forums. There are some issues/changes to the forums we are not able to fix or change. Also note the link address change, please let friends and posters know of the changed link to the forums. For now this is the only link available, https://forums.carm.org/vb5/ but if clicking on forum on carm.org homepage it will now send you to this link. (edited to add https: now working.

Again, we are working through some of the posting and viewing issues to learn how to post with the changes, you will have to check and test the different features, icons that have changed. You may also want to go to profile settings,since many of the notifications, information in profile, also to update/edit your avatar by clicking on avatar space, pull down arrow next to login for user settings.

Edit to add "How to read forums, to make it easier."
Pull down arrow next to login name upper right select profile, or user settings when page opens to profile,select link in tab that says Account. Then select/choose options, go down to Conversation Detail Options, Select Display mode Posts, NOT Activity, that selection of Posts will make the pages of discussions go to last post on last page rather than out of order that happens if you choose activity threads. Then be sure to go to bottom and select SAVE Changes in your profile options. You can then follow discussions by going through the pages, to the last page having latest responses. Then click on the other links Privacy, Notifications, to select viewing options,the forums get easier if you open all the tabs or links in your profile, user settings and select options. To join Super Member, pull down arrow next to login name, select User Settings and then click on tab/link at top that says Subscriptions.

Thank you for your patience and God Bless.

    My daughter wants me to get her a Roku stick for Christmas. Does anyone have one? How do they work? Do you need a special TV to use them?
    Mark 9:24 Lord, I believe; help thou mine unbelief.

    but more frequently than not struggles against the divine Word, treating with contempt all that emanates from God.” ― Martin Luther

    I have two of them in my home. We have a small receiver instead of the stick. It's been a blessing for our family. I often purchase programs that I can watch without the constant flow of advertising. There are plenty of free programs as well.
    It is fundamentally necessary and healthy for Christians to acknowledge that God foreknows nothing uncertainly, but that He foresees, purposes, and does all things according to His own immutable, eternal and infallible will. This bombshell knocks "free-will" flat…

      What's a receiver? Do you have to buy them? I have a smart TV and a receiver came with it.

        The Roku comes in two different varieties, both do the same thing, the stick normally goes into a usb port on your tv, the box (which is tiny) connects to the HDMI port on your T.V.

        The stick works by wireless (connected to your router) , and the box's depending on the model can work via Ethernet cable or wireless.

        You do not need anything other than the Roku and your T.V., however you will of course need an internet connection fast enough to deal with streaming normally around 2MBS for standard resolution and between 4-5MBS for higher (720p) res.
