Hi, Max. The Mudcat logo appears to be missing, and with it the Support Mudcat links. The "Order Mudcat cds" link is still visible, but leads to the following message: "Firefox can't find the server at tweedsblues.net." I'm still hoping for that one to include information about both Mudcat cd sets.

Perhaps you are working on these already. In any case, thanks.

"..why are things always blue ala blue clicky thing?"

they are blue by default.... you can change 'em to off-pink if you care to/....somewhere in settings. (I actually did change my
'visited links' color to a lighter red). You can have links underlined...or not...and in any font installed on your computer.

If you don't want to experiment with Max's 'interesting' suggestions, why...just go explore all the menu items for your browser.

In my opinion, this thread SHOULD be about trying to help Max with feedback and info regarding users' experiences.

If there is to be a complaint department, I would like to offer my services to Max as the first line response to simple complaints.

Allow me to interview for the position herein...

Complaint : It's too slow and I am getting impatient.
gnu : It's free. Bite me.

The Blue pop ups were an unexpected and suspicious [late night UK] imposition on OUR browsers and computers
- simple as that.

A thread title from Max prepaing us such an experiment would have been sufficient to allay all potential mudcat user questions
and concerns regarding issues of site security:
and having been properly informed that this was a legitimate 'survey request' and not a potential site 'hack' to be wary of,
many mudcatters would be more at ease to submit well considered positive replies.

That would have been easy fair and reasonable,

Every moment on the internet we are bombarded by all kinds of ugly distracting corporate advertising animations
and pop up/unders.

All of it a burden on our computer processing resources; and a larger percentage of it less than benign in intent.

That's why we as 'informed consumers' are forced into having to resort to deploying tiresome software counter measures
such as 'Ad Blockers'
which themselves can cause additional problems and conflicts with browser components.

It's a running perpetual battle between us and all those despicable corporate power greedy profiteering usurpers
of our personal internet liberties,
... and other international criminal gangs.

This is the wider context that popular forum site admins need to always be responsibly aware of when implementing
and surprising users with any well intentioned unexpected 'improvements' and developments.

Even more so with a bunch of notoriously die hard anti authoritarian paranoid conspiracy theorist misfits like mudcat members.

I've been sitting here biting my tongue, already sore from such self-control efforts. I see the combined threads addressing the fuss about the Feedback flag has gone, so will offer these few thoughts here. The little blue Feedback flag was an experiment. What's so scary about Max trying things here, on HIS site? He's told us he'd be doing just that.

I clicked and sent him a short message. I thought it would be an easy way for us to offer helpful feedback and it seems generous of Max to even offer it. Suggestions about placement, blocking it, etc. could go right on the suggestion form. I blocked the little face just to see how it would respond, and was left with a plain blue flag; less of a distraction, yet still visible.

Sure enough, there were so many immediate complaints the Host of the Feast was exasperated enough to yank it before he could evaluate its effectiveness. I'm wicked cautious about such things...even removed my google+ membership...but this was clearly something of Max's. I don't believe I am entitled to a vote. We are "living" in Max's living room, for Pete's sake.

There are things here I am not thrilled about. I can offer opinions when invited to do so, but I am not interested in controlling what Max chooses to do with his site.

Hey Max, did you get my comment on the blue flag Feedback form? I wasn't sure the last part of my note was entered correctly...it said, "Thank you."

Fancy shmancy new store-bought server arrives in the morning. Will take a couple days, maybe just one if I don't play with my kids, to get up and running, but we're close gang. I appreciate your patience, I'll make it up to all of you I promise, and we'll be tip top before you know it, it's assured.

In the meantime, that is to say: to pass the time, may I suggest switching underpants with your spouse for the evening and/or doing something you've never done before... or doing something you do in a venue you've never done it in before... that is to say: do something stupid.

Empower your whimsy, disarm regret, bend over willfully, cheerfully, for consequence and go out and make a memory that you and your spouse will awkwardly chuckle about till your end of days. Then we all win.

If your spouse is unwilling, call them a fuddy duddy, then bath, groom and dress in your finest means and manner, telephone the silliest person you know and take them out and do the smooshy ice cream dance.

If you do not have a spouse, practice saying yes in the mirror a few times and just generally having an affirmative attitude for several minutes, perhaps a snort or two from the vanilla extract bottle in the cupboard, then make that call you've been thinking about a lot lately. What the hell? It's mudcat tradition, you're just being a supportive member of the community and it's quirky traditions. Forgiveness is built in, whadaya got to lose?

If it all goes haywire, just abort the mission and start talking about what a wanker I am, and maybe drink the almond extract. And if it goes well, I just got you laid. You are welcome.

I do this sort of stuff every chance I get and look how well adjusted, patient, prudent and content I am.

You may now return to your version of reality.

It was slow for me on the 13th and into the early evening today (14th). Then I shut down my laptop because I got the low battery warning. After it finished recharging, I had trouble getting onto the Internet, but I think that's another issue. Once i got onto the Internet, Mudcat seemed to be working fine. I hope that continues to be true.

I've only had to refresh about 3 times when a thread "hung" on me, but quite a few things have taken more than a minute to load.

I've put it down the the feud Anonymous is having with Jester, since two of our local TV stations have been reporting that their computers have crashed, died, totaled. (all the smoke escaped, and they don't work anymore.)

I may have spent (euphemism for wasted?) a little less time here than usual because it was really good entertainment watching a couple of our local fluff-heads trying to report the news without prompters, and one of the weather guys was absolutely hilarious without his fancy gimmicks. (I think the guy has an iPad app to read a thermometer, and even that was down - must be a "cloud app.")

Has anyone checked whether it's local or net-wide?

John

I'll second k-1's recommendation that you copy a post before you hit submit, and will add the recommendation that you always preview before the final submit.

For really complex posts, I usually try to set the text up in Word before opening the Reply box. Then it's just a Copy/Paste to put it in the reply box. (Of course if you do this you do need to turn off the "curly quotes" in Word.)

There are TWO good reasons for the last suggestion.

1. On a really complex post it is possible for your connection to "time out" before you get done.

2. You can't look back at what others have posted, to make sure you're responding accurately, once you've hit the first preview.

(Of course you can always make your reply in a separate window/tab, but that means loading the thread twice.)

With respect to current mudcat performance, I'm getting quite a few clicks where the selected thread appears to have loaded completely, but is "DOA" and I can't scroll down or do anything else. Usually a "refresh" will reload and after the refresh everything works normally, but the "hung loads" seem to be annoyingly frequent. I suspect it's still due to overload of the server queue, but I've sent Joe an email and my speculations won't help until Max can take a look at it.

Q, over time I have learned that when the 'cat is tetchy it's worth it to copy the post in the event it doesn't take. That way you can put it onto a word document until such time as the 'cat's easier to get along with.

Speed is good in most cases, but some posts are slow to take, causing me worry about posting lyrics that take time to set up on a post.

On very long threads, e. g., the Bigots attack BP, I have had the thread freeze, and have to leave the mudcat site temporarily.
