    As you may have noticed, we've just implemented a much-requested chatroom. It is quite simple and has few fancy features, but for the moment we just want it to work!

     Anyway, have at it, and post your thoughts, feature requests, effusive thanks to the tech team, etc., right here. Thanks!

    cool
    but in the meantime I'll see if I can find out easy ways for you (Smiley, and anyone else who prefers something a bit more tranquil) to turn it off so YOU don't see it (all the flashing stuff) while other people play with it. It is possible to customize what you see, but I haven't really delved into it too much.

    Not a very inventive user name but a deadhead nonetheless. Fan since they were the Warlocks. I've never used a chatroom and figured this would be a good start.

that's the eternal conundrum, and it's pretty much the same issue as, say, keeping the Shakedown scene from getting out of hand and bringing down assorted wrath. The balance of freedom and self-policing gets tricky. But the place was home to a lot of people who never caused trouble for anyone at all, too. We know this...

If you choose not to regulate your self.their are plenty waiting and wanting to make more laws. And to regulate you. I my self thought Shake down was a Joke How many times do ya need to be Written by the Band Not to and Beware of what ya do. The Band and Friends caught the wrath . Because a few thought its more important for them to make money etc etc etc I went for the show I guess im one in 10,000. The parking lot after 85 was a joke prior just friends,and the lint ball rolled and grabbed many strange and selfish things. Self Regulation is the only way. Well time to Rake the colorful leaves up . Blessings to all. Enjoy the NOW Peace Smiley D Do For Other's you Will Feel Better!!! Guaranteed

I have alot of stuff I've bought in the lot...each one holds a memory, and I really LIKE grilled cheese, but yeah, greed moved in, and people just there for the buck without any thought for the music. Some kind folk made a passable living moving from show to show, " follow the circus!!" but not everyone was kind.......and yes, it IS still America!!

i need help with some brief details about a show that I went to in New Haven, CT. I believe that it was in November, 1978. Everybody had gotten inside and we were waiting for the show to start. After a while, somebody came out on stage and said that we all had to leave and go home be cause Jerry got sick. That's all that I can remember. Can someone with a clear memory of what happened write me at halloweendeadhead@yahoo.com and let me knoe anything more? Date? Time passage from start-time to announcement? Who announced? Did we all hang-out or just leave in an orderly fashion? What went on in the parking lot afterward? I would really appreciate the feedback. Thank You, Jane H.

When you go to Chat Room and click on chat room in the upper left and watch how your browser is directed to attempt to get there, you might, as I have, seen B.scorecardrearch.com before your atempt failed. When I Googled that it came up with the following comment from this blogger (If you don't feel like reading the summation is that you need to get all of the fleas and ticks out of your computer -- yeah, you got'em and it'll cost you to get rid of 'em.) ***** ****** ***** For many of you who use the Firefox browser to access my blog Right Wing Nuthouse, you may have found reading it an impossibility over the last 10 days or so. I ask your pardon. I was unaware of the problem until a reader emailed me and mentioned it. I was having problems accessing the site myself but I thought it was specific to my computer and not a general problem with viewing the website in Firefox (IE and Google Chrome were unaffected.). It seems that an insidious, unwelcome, unasked for, should-be-criminal script was surreptitiously installed in the sidebar of my blog and was wreaking havoc with visitor’s computers. When clicking on the web address to The House, the site would appear briefly and then be redirected to something called B.scorecardresearch.com – except the script caused the site to hang forever leaving a blank page to look at. I tried to scrub it using every anti-spyware, anti-malware, anti-virus program I had – and some like Spybot I downloaded. Since I was unaware that the problem was a rogue, 3rd party script, the small piece of code laughed at my efforts to eradicate it. It sneered as I flailed about aimlessly, nearly weeping with frustration and anger, and vowing to take my revenge – if I ever managed to see my website again in Firefox. A search revealed that b.scorecardresearch.com was a webtracking company, carefully monitoring my keystrokes and website visits. I discovered upon visiting its website that I might opt out of participating in this gangster company’s information gathering. After clicking the “opt out” link, I was told the cookie would be inoperative. In this, they were correct – except the problem wasn’t with a cookie. The problem was that a script had been placed inside the blog infrastructure itself without my knowledge or permission. When I discovered that there were still problems with the site after opting out, I went to the Mozilla support forum and screamed for help. The good geeks at Mozilla came through in spectacular fashion. First, Gerv identified the problem: The sites which are having the problem include code from Technorati, which itself includes code from extreme-dm.com, which includes a reference to a script on the site b.scorecardresearch.com. For some reason, that script is not loading correctly, and it is not marked as inessential to the page, and so the page load is blocked. This is an example of why including scripts from a 3rd party site in your website is a dangerous thing to do. Do you trust everyone that the owner of that script trusts? So this is (probably) not a problem with Firefox. Then a good bit of luck; an expert in WordPress who had dealt with a similar problem on another website: WP Specialist: Had the same problem earlier with a client’s site. Do you have technorati called anywhere within your theme? Removing that from our site fixed the issue. From some reading I did, it’s apparently the latest update of FireFox causing the issue. (Which explains why it’s okay in IE and Chrome) Some “tracking scripts” are running wrong and causing the redirect. So, if you don’t have technorati going, trying disabling any of your java (i.e. twitter follow widgets) Please let me know if this helped (because I’m curious). Good luck! Sure enough, I accessed the blog innards and there it was – a script with “technorati” in the middle of it (I wish I had copied the script but was so excited to get rid of it I wasn’t thinking), sitting all by itself in my right hand sidebar, minding my business, not serving any purpose for the blog whatsoever. I removed it and all is well in blogland again. I have no idea how that script got there. I certainly wasn’t asked to participate in any kind of program that would monitor my surfing habits. Did Technorati place it there? My meager knowledge of how such scripts are installed makes that an open question. I know that it wasn’t there previously since I had occasion to work on the sidebar code from time to time over the last 5 years. It could have been there for months or, given the recent problems with accessing the site, just a matter of days. In the future, I will take no chances. I will no longer visit Technorati. And let this be a warning to everyone; no 3rd party scripts for your blog or browser. Unless you are absolutely sure what you are getting, it is best to steer clear of scripts from unknown sources. I learned that lesson the hard way. I hope you don’t have to. ***** ***** ****** After the recent news of the super malware out there right now it is frightening to see what these state-sponsored programs can do. How much more so these companies like Technorati & B.scorecardresearch.com & whoever else is out there.

people are having a problem with the chat room regardless of what browser they're using, so this is not a Firefox problem specifically.

Interesting to note that it isn't just Mozilla people are having problems with. I'm hoping that the problem will clear up some time, regardless of who is responsible. It is possible that since this blogger posted the mentioned offenders have found a way to corrupt IE & Chrome. If you can see how your browser is redirecting you should be able to note if there are uninvited parties in the process.

Well, it`s dec30, and, as ussual, i loggon to make my dead.net appearance.just kidding, but, seriously, I really have made coming onto the dead.net chatroom a tradition, if you will.

When the chat crashes are only certain users able to restart it. I tried posting and it just stays blank. Not a big deal because someone always seems to restart it, just curious.

From the looking around I've done it seems like they will notify by email. The send dates for the mail in tickets are March-June but they want to let people know before the sales start happening! Still trying to figure out the whole presale thing?? I've signed up every where, that I wasn't already. Anyone know where we need to order them from?

I think they cancelled the 2/12 presale because of the 60,000 envelopes they received. might not be through them all before 2/12 and/or might not have any seats left to presell I guess
