Am having all sorts of weird things happening here on my Spanish computer( besides my own problems adjusting to new keyboard) am using explorer here/pc. Have pages loading with funny vertical lines, and all kinds of mean nasty ugly things that am too tired to remember what they all were right now. Will update as problems occur. Suspect that might be as simple as slower internet connection than was used to, but am not absolutely sure yet********************************** Don't part with your illusions.

So sorry for the added aggravation. It does sound like a slow connection or some such may be part of the problem, but please keep us posted, thanks!
Seems to be the problem, as this morning is working better. Will see what happens later in the day.********************************** Don't part with your illusions. When they are gone, you will still exist, but you have ceased to live. Samuel Clemens

I'm getting the dreaded "Blue Smurf" search message, when I attempt to access this page. FYI. The Dude Abides!
Please let us know if the problem persists. part of what you're seeing sounds like the duplicate post and spam filter problems, which are well known at this point. Quite often someone will get no response when they hit Post, so they keep banging, resulting in multiple posts. Sometimes they all end up in the spam filter, resulting in no posts till Iz or I go in and clean up the mess, i.e. publish one of the dupes and nuke the rest.
is this still happening for you?
Yes, marye, it is still a problem. I get "node 10923" in the "Enter Search" box when the default page pops up. Sorry for hassle and thanks for the prompt reply. The Dude Abides!
I'm getting the same results, specifically: "The page you requested does not exist. For your convenience, a search was performed using the query node 10923." and Keywords "node 10923" in the search box.... "Music is Love"
So when do we get to read about the further adventures of Phil??
tj crowley hit the button for more and then directed that page could not be found....tom crowley w e s s 90.fm
It is totally inexcusable that the featured article off of this website's home page has been offline for over 24 hours. If you can't even do this right then why even bother? Typical Rhino. You guys / gals just do not get it. Don't bother fixing it on my account - I don't care anymore.
Phil not coming up from home pagesame error as everyone Just isn't that big of a deal to place blame on anyone/anything _________ NTFDAWY
...digging throug the freezer. Shouldn't be long now. The Dude Abides!
yah i"ll have adouble well maybe if i still drank .ha ha .it is what you said in re;to posting.the other stuff seems to be okay as well so far tonight.humm...see when you and izzie are gone..."look what happens"but than you guys get loaded down with stuf.f to come back and fixsorry.thanks for responding quickly i might add. peace heathaafeathaa
please holler. Word is the story was not properly published and now is, but if there are still problems speak up!
you're welcome! sorry for all the aggravation.
was the whole site actually offline/down earlier (about 24 hours ago) or was I unable to see everything because of 'heavy traffic' like the apology page said?
it wasn't just this site, it was a server meltdown further up the corporate food chain. And yeah, down. For extended periods. I haven't heard any reports since it was up. Whether heavy traffic was a contributing factor, I can't say; there certainly WAS heavier traffic the last few days since the Road Trip announcements, but what else was going on I dunno. Anyway, fingers crossed for a bit more stability.
I was trying to post this in the positive vibes area a few times, it kept giving me a message about the proxyserver... something or other. if it makes it here--first time I ever saw that message; please move it. thankx and peace. more positive vibes on the way, dude. if you feel like getting into more specifics, please don't feel we will read it as whining or complaining. all of us have had troubles in life, and that is what the 'loveful' community here is all about. cosmicbadger said it better, we are hear to listen and help with vibes and if you want to tell us more, we'll listen sympathetically. reach out more, if you think it will help. love and peace.
I am rather amazed at the incomplete "cover art" supporting dicks picks if downloaded.please get this right! we are paying customers when we download and the notes and covers should be considered part of the package. do you guys give a rip? i'm looking for the "later ones" including 35, 32, 36 etc. where are they??? -Gary Desilet
The Rhino folks are aware of this issue and working on it. Which is not as good as having it all fixed right now, but is reason for hope at least.
Just an idea to make navigating the forum part of the website easier and faster. On the right side there is the number indicating how many posts there are for the topic and under that number there is the number of new posts since the last time the viewer looked at that topic. Would it be possible to make it that when someone clicks on the new post number that it takes the viewer to the oldest of the new posts instead of the first page of posts? This would make a big difference in time saving! Thanks so much for all the great work so far to u and the others who have made such a lovely site! Cheers, Jody Are you kind?
from the beginning, as believe me we share your pain. So far no go, but let's just say it is sure on the wish list.
trying to post, getting this message... Gateway Timeout The proxy server did not receive a timely response from the upstream server. Reference #1.84c7bcdb.1194748518.df957ab
pf course that one posted right away, but I couldn't post into the false alarm thread. same thing happened last week with the message for positive vibes. weird.
I can't post to this thread and probably added several redundant attempts to the spam folder in attempting (sorry 'bout that). No big deal just fyi.
GRTUD - don't know why it caught your posts, but it did. I've got on published now and nuked the others.

Yeah, we ARE getting some weird system behavior, sorry!
what I just figured out, which might help, is if I Preview Comment first, and then post it, it went right through without a hitch. I will see if it works again with this post -- which with the way life is going, it probably won't. ever optimistic, I will give it a go.
well, Preview Comment is working and getting the posts through straightaway... others who have trouble posting might wanna try that, too. peace
I continue to get a message at the top of the page whenever I surf the forums.Not Allowed to Post New Topic In Forums. Wondering how come, and can't seem to find any help topic on it.
There are no user-created forums here on Dead.Net. I don't know why you'd be seeing that message unless you were trying to create a new forum. (I'll log in from my user account and see if I see that message...) If there's a forum/topic you'd like created, please let me or MaryE know, and we'll do our best to accommodate your request!
Ms Izzie, thanks for your reply. Maybe I just misunderstood the New part. I read it as I could not post in a forum at all. My post in this one seemed to work so maybe its ok. I just was confused by that mssg at top everytime I went to a forum.Thanks, Kurt
hallo,i have a little problem.when i open my account then i see in the messages colum only the words block message.other accounts have a second button saying send private message.does this mean that other people cannot reach me or does the block message button appear only if i click to my own site?thanks for your help frankly
the Jerry Forum. the stuttering problem is no big deal, atleast I have a place where I can comment on things that I find interesting. For some strange reason my non-dead listening people, don't seem to find these subjects so engaging! PEACE
I'm about to send you a PM. If you don't get it, post here and we'll figure out something else. I want to get a clearer sense of what we're dealing with before I bring in the tech wizards. Thanks!
I just went and looked at my own page and it has the same thing. I'll still send you a PM, but in case anyone else is wondering also, I think this is what's going on: On someone else's page, you can either send them a message or block messages from them. That's what the two links are for. Now I just checked on my own page, and, as makes perfect sense, there's no link to send messages to myself. On the other hand the Block Messages link is for blocking messages from myself, which does seem a little silly. I will seek technical enlightenment on this point. Thanks!
hallo mary,the same thing was going through my mind.i believe your conclusion is right...but i wanted to be sure.thanks and have a nice day
this electronic stuff has some weird powers,could not join the deadnet at any cost.first some weird alien was grinning at me and than google said that they never heard of something like the deadnet......but at least the shop was working,so i could order myself a cup for the tea,to calm down......peace and understanding(to PCs too!!)P.S.but what happened anyway,if its explainable.thanks
Hi folks. We appear to have had some technical Issues yesterday. I'm waiting for word from the intrepid techs as to what's up, but meanwhile, welcome back and fasten them seat belts!
.....hmm better go for the straight jackets(just in case!)
I'm using Mac OSX 4 and with both Firefox and Safari, I can't upload a picture into my profile. Mark
Are you having this problem with the upload photo function for the photo (of yourself, usually) that appears on your profile, or with the Upload Fan Photo function?
I've been currently online a lot this week when I'm not. Kind of strange. It's not like anybody I know has my password or anything.
say more. Do you log out and find yourself logged in in another window, or ???
I'll go to the site and see my name on the Who's Online list.
I'm not seeing fan photos today. Where there should be pic only a red x appears in the upper lefthand corner.
I can not see fan photos either!!
