Taper Section

Okay, folks....

We THINK that the long-missing pages of Tapers Section have been restored, notably many pages from 2008-2010. And from what we can tell, the links work, too.

However, heads up that in some cases the pages have different names than they used to, so older links and bookmarks may break.

If you encounter things not working on the TS pages, please send me the particulars. Thanks and happy listening to the restored tunes...

as a very wise person once said

Never put anything online that you wouldn't want to see on the front page of the New York Times.

That, of course, was before Facebook, which caused another wise person to remark that the only Facebook privacy policy you need to know is: If It's Private, Don't Put It On Facebook.

Facebook is omniverous, devouring your every word

I find it sad that people are so addicted to Facebook that they have to make it a destination from this website. Facebook is collecting and collating every single word and fact you spit out. "So what," you might say. "I'm not doing anything wrong or I'm ashamed of. I have no skeletons in the closet and am always pleasantly surprised when people find me.".

Did you ever think that Facebook, a publicly traded corporation, may be scooping data to sell to Lexus-Nexus, the premier sleuth out there. Perhaps you might have a few bucks and kids in school. Somebody does a search on you and Facebook info. collected with many other public records gives would-be kidnappers all the info. they need to snatch your kid for ransom.

Maybe you are well-loved in your community now but use to be a bully without eve being aware of the old meaning of the term and somebody had been nursing a grudge all these years and now uses Facebook to find you and get revenge for something hideously silly, liked you knocked the books out of her had in 5th grade.

There used to be a warning about how dead.net could track you. Laughable. No horror stories so far but I'm just waiting for the moron who bought his assault rifle in the parking lot of a gun show along with uranium depleted bullets after putting a GPS tracker on your car so they could take you out for not letting them dervish with you at the Frost in '83....

So have fun on Facebook kids, I'm sure I just paranoid!

How about a new feature where local heads can link up?

Hi,
Maybe you do but I don't see it yet. But if you don't, can dead.net have a locals specific segment where local heads can connect in their respective communities? It would be great to see who is tuned in here in Edmonton, Alberta.

My compliments to the old format dead.net

I think it was a delight and easy to use and looked beautiful. Deadnet Central seemed like a plain vanilla experiment and the current format is more commercial and more poorly displayed and harder to use, not to mention more tracked (though not overly so) by those web sleuths.

I guess Rhino still gets to give itself an award for best rock band web site but I sure wish we had the old format back.... Ahh well, you never know what you have till it's gone.

yes, it will all be back

even in the digital world, moving things from point A to point B takes longer than one would like. I mean, some things may be out of stock or discontinued in the normal course of things, but the fully stocked Store will be back. Thanks!!

The store selections

Hi Mary E,

Is the store going to be adding in all the music that was available before the format change? There used to be a huge selection including all of the Europe 72 individual shows. I sure would like to order the 5/11/72 Rotterdam set.

~I am confused, just want to hear the music play!
