Howdy-doo and here's to YOU for making this wonderful little sunny glade in the internet wasteland!
Don't know if it's a problem or my ignorance, just reporting that after clicking on recent posts and going to the one for forum=show the post for November 23, 1968 seems to be credited to brother Lane, who might be surprised that he was there! I posted the original. I see also there are 2 replies but only find one when I open it. Do I have stumblefingers...?
In the bloom of awesomeness that is this budding site, this stuff "ain't hardly bad" but it might be worth a look-see.

I dunno, it must have been the roses!
First show 11/23/68 ATHENS OHIO ... Anyone have it for trade?
And I rechecked the All Shows link and now it's fine. Hmmmm....I tried it 4 times yesterday before posting. Maybe it was my connection at home (at work now).
Iz, The lovely zenrose is on retreat in VANCOUVER at the moment, lucky duck! She'll be home first of the week.
And yes, for the moment topic starting is disabled. Partly in the interest of working out the bugs in a finite number of topics. But if you think there's something we can't live without right now, let us know and we'll start it.
caribouh -thanks for your input all weekend!! much appreciated.
you said: I tried to create a "What's your favorite Jack Straw" thread, and not seeing a completely appropriate forum or sub-forum, I chose "Grateful Dead."
Please check out the Grateful Dead Forum ..... I was thinking about starting just such a topic this morning!!
Great job, folks. Great looking site.
A few things I've noticed and/or might humbly suggest:
--Any chance of using keyboard shortcuts (ctrl-i, etc.) instead of HTML tags in the comments? (Also, for the "More information about formatting options" link beneath the text window, would you consider a pop-up with the formatting options in it? It's a link to a new page now, and when I clicked it then came back here, what I'd written was gone.)
--Am I right that starting new topics is disabled at the moment? I tried to create a "What's your favorite Jack Straw" thread, and not seeing a completely appropriate forum or sub-forum, I chose "Grateful Dead." It wasn't til I tried to post it that I got a message that I coulnd't create in that forum.
Quite a few niggling problems with the database (I assume?) that's feeding the "Shows & Songs" section. Not sure whether/how important it is to be painstakingly accurate with this stuff (Deabase is pretty good), but just in adding some shows I've attended, I noticed:
* I'm fairly sure the list for Charlotte (N.C.) Coliseum should actually be two separate venues; one through '84 I believe and the other from '89 on.
* The shows aren't all in exact chronological order under Hampton (Va.) Coliseum
* Clicking on Washington, D.C., brings a link to venues in "Washington" (not state) and "Washington, D.C." These can be combined.
* For 9/12/90, the "Notes" don't match the setlist.
* No setlist at all comes up for 6/24/95, 6/25/95, 6/22/91.
I've enjoyed checking this out this weekend. Thanks for the opportunity to comment.
You know it's gonna get stranger... thanks!
And help us help you by tracking in here, too! if it's already been mentioned.....
