    click, click, click....

    Does anyone else have a problem with a clicking noise on this site? When I am looking at this site, I hear a clicking noise as if I am clicking the mouse every 2-3 seconds, even when I am nowhere near the keyboard or mouse. It doesn't happen on any other site.

    It's very annoying!

    Oh crap! And I thought I was the only one! The voices in my head told me so.

    Seriously though... Really annoying

    I think something in the site refreshes constantly and makes that noise.

    yep..true it's the refreshing drives us to a point of insanity...

    I wonder if we can sue them for this???

    No guys, it's to do with your computers. I have two at home and only one does it.

    Very true and i'm sure Teutonic Deity will get around to changing the refreshed ratio soon, oh and moved to 'Technical Support' Olim, thanks for pointing that out in 'Information'

    While we're on the subject, why doesn't the cursor land on the login box when you come the home page.
    And logging out is a real pain. One has to log out on two different pages if they want to securely log out. On my home computer I don't worry about it but in an office enviorment the next person to sign in can end up in my account if I haven't done a double log out.

    It's also a pain to post. I have to write in Notepad, then copy/paste
    Better busy than bored.

    Not true, it's enough to log out once at the main page http://www.expat.ru/forum/

    So what is the main page, www.expat.ru or www.expat.ru/forum?
    One would think the first but apparently the other. Anyway the layout is definitely not idiot proof
    as I have proved.

    1- turn off the sound.
    2- no need to log out, just delete the cache.

    well if you listen to some CD or watching movies to turn off the sound is not the best idea


    you should just open Volume Control and mute Wave


    I hate that clicking sound too!

    To remove the mouse click sound:

    1. Go to control panel

    2. Select "Sounds and Audio devices.

    3. Click the tab for "Sounds"

    4. Under "Sound Scheme" select the blank line.

    5. Hit Apply. All your sounds should stay similar, but the mouse click should go away.

    Ah, that's my fault. Along with everything else.
