How to register on cFIREism??
« on: May 13, 2015, 10:22:56 AM »
This may be a dumb questions and not sure where to post, but the last section when you try to register asks you to provide a link. This may be obvious, but I cannot figure out what link to put there- everyone I paste doesn't work! Help please? Thanks!

The directions could be better. I think you need to go to
http://www.cfiresim.com/input.php
and then look for the pulldown menu "blogs/forums"

Tutorial/FAQ | cFIREsim Blog | cFIREsim Forums |  Blogs/Forums  |  Calculators/Tools  | Support cFIREsim:

Hint, it's ERE's site.

What does the link to ERE have to do with registering on cFIREsim?

Go to the cFIREsim forums, the link immediately to the left of the dropdown box forummm was talking about: http://104.131.112.188/phpBB3/index.php
We are two former teachers who accumulated a bunch of real estate, retired at 29, and now travel the world full time with two kids.
If you want to know more about me, or how we did that, or see lots of pictures, this Business Insider profile tells our story pretty well.
We (rarely) blog at AdventuringAlong.com. Check out our Now page to see what we're up to currently.

The ERE link is currently the "are you sure you're not a bot" question.   I only know because I registered late last week... and my userid (and post) seem to have disappeared since then.

Ah, gotcha.  I was quite confused, but it makes sense now.  :)

Yep.  Really strange.  It wasn't there a few hours back and my userid was unknown.  I was able to sign up again using the exact same id. 

Searches for it by title or userid came up blank... and now it's back.   I guess that's good.


Edit:  I notice you have an IP in there... not a fqdn.   And DNS resolves to 192.232.223.88 for me.  (I don't know if there is a fancy schmancy DNS that resolves based on geolocation or if you're getting something in cache.)   But it looks like my post does not exist on 192.232.223.88.

(It's not a big deal.)

A month or two ago I registered on cFIREsim and tried to post a question on the forum, but my question never appeared...

Thanks for the heads up guys.  I just completed a big move to a new house yesterday, so things are a bit hectic.  I'll try and register some test accounts and figure out whats wrong.  I'll report back later.
