Taper's Section Jukebox, please?!

Hi Folks,

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.

thanks!

well, theenjoyer

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.

Forum format and Open Topics

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.

Phil Instruction

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.

hinky

shows up on cop shows a lot.:-) The late great Jerry Orbach in his role as Lenny Briscoe was very given to using the word.

hinkage, chronology and a new topic

Maybe it's because I'm posting with part of the European contigent that these posts are coming in out of order?
