Does AoM kick you offline

Started this discussion. Last reply by Regular Joe Jan 31, 2014. 8 Replies

I enjoy reading and contributing to AoM.  But I find that every few minutes this site kicks my computer off of my home wifi.  This never happens unless I have AoM open.  If I close AoM my computer…Continue

Boondocker replied to Jack M.'s discussion What book do you think is worth re-reading and why?.
"The last book that I re-read was "The Power of Habit" by Charles Duhigg.  I read it five times this summer - it's that good (if you are into self-improvement). I also try to read "Six Great Ideas" and "Ten…"

Karl Helweg replied to Boondocker's discussion What do you like to fly? in the group Aviation
"I agree that these groups are way too quiet for supposedly being a forum dedicated to "manliness" rather than girly ground pounders. I have the unreasoning bias of a parent or owner so my favorite plane is my Cherokee 160. She is all torn…"

Regular Joe replied to Boondocker's discussion Do you like your films mainstream or edgy? in the group Film

Regular Joe replied to Boondocker's discussion Do you like your films mainstream or edgy? in the group Film

Boondocker replied to Mark V's discussion How do you break unhelpful thought habits?

Boondocker replied to Dan Hughes's discussion I Just Finished Watching... in the group Film
"Crime + Punishment is Suburbia (2000)  I like films that are unpredictable and this one qualifies.  Also, at about one hour and eighteen minutes into this film there is the best description of guilt that I have ever heard."

Native Son replied to Sir's discussion US Presidential primaries in the group The Great Debate
"Hmm.  Cronyism and nationalist populism.  Sounds like a description of the electoral campaigns of '92, '96, and '00. 1892, 1896, and 1900 that is. "Mr. Bryan. Paging Mr. William Jennings Bryan to the podium.""

I'm a new aromantic ace. Any questions?

Hey everyone! I'm a 23 year old (cis) man from the UK. I'm both asexual and aromantic, as I only realised a couple of months ago. I'm currently at uni studying education, but I want to go into psychology rather than teaching. Currently I'm only out as aro-ace to my friends on Reddit, not to my friends at uni. Any questions?See More
