Just like your favorite jam, things are going to get a bit funky on Dead.net over the next week or so. Community accounts will be temporarily closed October 16th-17th and may be under further maintenance through October 22nd. But rest assured, we will be back up and better than ever shortly thereafter. Stay tuned!
I would love to see the taper's section have a 'jukebox' so that we could just hit go and it would randomly stream all previously posted nuggets forever. For those of us with computers hooked to the stereo this would be great rather than having to dig into each taper section and clicking a nugget. Then it's over then you have to go back and hit another one, etc.
Yes I know about all the other dead streams, but they stream too weakly (56kb), have ads, get boring, or all of those.
If you do look into this, please make it stream at 128kb because anything below that is not really worth listening to through a stereo.
speaking as the moderator I'm not quite sure what you're getting at here and we have fairly lively participation from the members who stick around. Should you wish to be one of them that is cool.
The interface is not perfect. However, we do the best we can with what we've got. Thank you.
This is a strange forum in how it's formatted and the fact that users can't start new topics.
The display is not user friendly and the static nature of threads severely limits the amount of activity you will see from users. I wonder what your stats are on members with a post or two. If you had a more standard interface with some moderators there would be more activity and more participation from existing members. I'd be happy to have more dialogue about this. Just fire me an e-mail.
Thanks for giving us a place to gather and be kind.
I'm a bassist.
I'd like to encourage Phil to make a DVD (or two) giving bassists tips on how to play in his style. He'd be in good company, as John Entwhistle and Jaco Pastorius have both made such DVDs. It may not be a big money maker, but it would leave a lasting legacy for future generations of bassists. It would also be a great opportunity to record him playing with the camera on him. All the Dead DVDs I've seen only zoom in on his fingers occasionally.
Alternately, you could post the vids here.
Not on Dixon of Dock Green or The Bill then

Maybe it's because I'm posting with part of the European contigent that these posts are coming in out of order?
Here you go, folks who don't live in North America:
