    http://www.dead.net/show/july-4-1987 & Bob Dylan
    http://www.dead.net/show/july-4-1987 & Bob Dylan I know the setlist mentions his last name as having helped with the sound check, as well as his singular voice when he starts singing, but I think that “Guest Vocalist” or “Guest Appearance”, or some such statement at the first of the “Notes” section would be much more helpful than making us deduce for ourselves his presence. Not to mention the absolute absence of his first name. We wouldn't want anyone to assume y'all are trying to make us believe Dylan Ryder sat in with The band (Dylan Thomas (though I guess he could have 'attended' had his casket been exhumed)). Sorry. The places my mind goes...

Thanks in advance, Marinus

    the tech folks spent a lot of time on this to make sure it worked right. So far it seems to be pretty stable, which is a big plus!

I just asked Mr Pid the following question 'You at work?' instantly the chatroom window went blank and I got this message 'You have been kicked out. Further abuse will result in permanent banning.' had to log back into the chatroom. Promise not to mention work again!

I hope Badger's experience wasn't because of anything I said. I did respond to the question, even though it was just to say I had to go, because of that dreaded four letter word... Conversation is always more interesting than recitation, so speak your mind and not someone else's.

that's very strange, and not the first report I've seen of strange deployment of kicked-out tools. I'm gonna report this. Thanks.

It's been taken offline for the moment to see if it's related to some technical problems elsewhere on the site, it being one of relatively few new things that may have been a factor. More as I know it...

I dig the chat room but every time I go there I'm lost in space, not a single soul to be found. Frown.

the chat room's down, so let me use this forum. first off, I am new at this on-line stuff and since my work just gave me a lovely Macbook, I feel the need to sit in bed and use it. I am searching for some specific older shows from my way back machine days. My tapes are shot and I have no where else to turn (heavy sigh). Anyone have a decent copy of Penn State 1980? It's my favorite China-Rider. My tape wasn't great and had my friend constantly looking for a lighter or bumping into the mike stand.... Anybody have a copy?

well in a way I feel the same, but then there do seem to be a whole lot of new folks appearing here too which is great to see...we used to be a little gang and now we are a big community here which must be good...but I think that is showing up some weaknesses in the site design..it is getting harder and harder to keep up and still very slow to explore a forum....maybe a shake up would shake us up too. The chat room was a really welcome addition.though may it come back soon!

I think it's safe to say that a lot of technical issues are being scrutinized, especially as things like listening parties and chat rooms get added to the mix. I share your pain about the system performance issues; I trust that they are temporary, but I understand the aggravation. It's always something! Thank you for your patience...

I am looking forward to re-introduction of the Chat Room. Think of it like this, there were many songs that the band stopped playing, but they came back. Dark Star (7/13/84 to 10/8/89), Black Throated Wind ('74 to '90), Casey Jones (84 to 92), Loose Lucy (74 to 90), etc. Just like the songs continue playing ... Ok lost my train of thought on this ... All good things, in all good time.

sorry, posted to soon. I enjoy getting in touch with heads all around. Immediate satisfaction is something that chatrooms give. A good conversation was also one of the reasons I loved the shows. The chat, kind of resembles the lots...etc.

Is it OK to allow anonymous guests in the Chat Room? Not sure.

I share cosmicbadger's concern for potential problems here, but have somewhat mixed emotions. We were always free to attempt to strike up random conversations in the lot or the show without identifying ourselves, and while the chatroom context is similar (to me,) it does lack the physical proximity/available security dimension of an in person encounter. Perhaps a solution might be to require that a virtual token be delivered via email and re-presented to the site for anyone desiring to post in the chatroom anonymously. That would create some semblance of accountability at least. It's hard to imagine any possible problem caused by someone who merely wanted to eavesdrop, but not actively participate. It's not like there can be any assumption of privacy in what is effectively a public space. Conversation is always more interesting than recitation, so speak your mind and not someone else's.

I have a feeling this is a leftover fro the KPFA chat, but also I think it's worth letting it run a bit and see what happens. We can always turn it off later, I would guess.
