This is weird. For the past couple of days when I come to PBS the message I'm greeted with is,

``````````````````````````

Hello, Cheryl. Welcome back to your account!

  • Thanks for letting us know that The Well of Ascension (Mistborn Bk. 2) was received. Now we can credit the book Club Member who mailed the book so that she or he can order another book from the Club Library.

``````````````````````````

The odd thing is, I received that book on March 28th so more than 3 weeks ago, and I've received at least a dozen books since then. I access PBS via a bookmark on Speedl Dial (Firefox add-on) which leads me directly to my account page--I never see the main PBS homepage at all. At first I thought maybe it was because that was what was on the message when I added the link to Speed Dial, but I'm pretty sure I've had it on there longer than that, and also everything else on the page is updated--ingoing/outgoing books, wish list holds, etc.

Weird! Anyone else notice anything like this happening? Is the PBS system having brain farts? :D

Cheryl

Maybe they are really thankful you got that book?

Seriously, must be a hiccup.

I'm having problems with blinkies going wacko.  Assumed it was the viruses going around.  Am restarting my browser and clearing my cache more than usual.  Do check your machine for viruses.  I am.

I clear my cache daily and have Norton in the background as well as do full scans daily, also with the supplemental checkers like ad-aware, etc. Nothing there. Well, I guess I'll just chalk it up to weirdness. I marked a book received last evening, and while I was on the site after doing so, it did show that book in the "thanks for letting us know you received...." part, but once I left and came back, Well of Ascension was back.

I access PBS via a bookmark on Speedl Dial (Firefox add-on) which leads me directly to my account page--I never see the main PBS homepage at all.

I also go straight to my account page via a Firefox bookmark. How is that different from using your add-on?  Just curious.

I didn't even notice that PBS had a home page until two days ago. Who says I'm unobservant?
