    Style Sheet Problems
    Mary, Over the past 3 days, I have been having terrible problems with loading any page on Dead.net. The "style" of the page is missing - only white background, no logo. Sometimes a box containing snippets of code and error information. I got this in different forms with both Firefox 6.0 and Mac Safari 5.1 on a Max OS 10.6.8. Today, after clearing caches, browsing history, and all website data and then resetting/restarting browsers, Firefox now works. But, Safari still does not render Dead.net correctly. Safari shows an error when attempting to download the page. This error is: "too many HTTP redirects" from "http://www.dead.net/sites/all/themes/deadnet/style.css" Clearly, the style sheet has been modified and now has a coding error - probably a self-referencing HTTP link. Please pass this along to the website coders. Thanks, Ed

    weirdness
    abounds around here. Last night when I logged in someone with the handle relating to greenchiles was logged in like a thousand times. At around 5:30 this morning the two main E72 threads and the announcement about preauthorizing were not on the first page. Now I see they are. Maybe I got into that yak milk accidentally....

    That would explain lots of things, johnman
    Especially if you've been slipping them that fermented yak milk again. I seem to be back to normal, or as normal as I ever am...

    WRT the dual login issue
    try clearing your cache and deleting your cookies and see if that helps, and please let me know! Thanks!

    this is one reason I'm holding off starting all these new vine topics. I'd like to see things settle down a bit first...

as much as I want to, I can not enter the contest today or download the song, I have tried every avenue available that I know of and nothing, the song plays, (could it be the best and longest Sugaree ever?), but nothing when you click on the enter or download button. Anyway, the answer today is.........., this is a good one.

I can't reproduce this problem, it's working fine for me. What browser/OS/etc. are you using? Thanks!

Links not working. Some people still use IE these days. Also, can't post comments: Not everyone uses Facebook!

IE9. I'm not very happy with the 30 days comment setup...I can't comment without logging in to Facebook... I just downloaded Firefox and the downloading/contest entry system works fine with it. Thanks for helping.

I cannot get the download OR contest link to react at all. The "hand" comes up in IE and FF. But clicking either link produces no result, not even a 404 error or "pop-up" to "saves this as a file". Just a mysterious pause and "done".

the 30 Days of Dead doesn't show as a thread, never mind download;threads are not updating, though new posts are showing if you go directly there; problems logging in; 400% enlargement when I get dead.net to load Unless the almanac and stores are working it is a bummer of a time for these glitches.

hello folks, my problem is this: when i go to the chatroom, all i see is a large blank white screen with a smaller white screen below that says, "enter your message here" and who's online. i can type in the message box and actually see what i'm typing, but when i hit "submit", the message disappears from my view. i have been told by reliable sources :) that they can see my messages, but i can't. i have windows 7 with IE. thanks for any help. p.s. i am using the links from the forum "topic and suggestions chat room" and www.dead.net/chat and on neither can i see messages from me or anyone else. i hope it's not something super simple either, 'cause if it is, i'm gonna quit using a computer and go back to paper and pencil.

that used to happen all the time but isn't happening for most folks now, from what I hear (it works great for me, and I was having this same issue) I'll pass this to the tech folks. Thanks much!

I am also having the problem Slo had mentioned. For a while now, it was working ok, but the last few days, when I go to post into chat, it just goes to nowhere. Nor can I see any other posts. Hopefully we can get it fixed so chat will again be active. At this rate, I may have to resort to doing my job!!! -Dave

> how's the new site working It's broken. It looks like the site has been redesigned for mobile, but on my desktop machine, it's a mess; the Newsletter sign-up box and the Who's Online box are floating stationary on top of other page content. Here's a screen shot: Firefox 21 running on Kubuntu 12.04 LTS

On my Nexus 7 (running Chrome on Jellybean 4.2.2), the Newsletter and Who's Online boxes are positioned correctly, which is to say that they appear to the right of the page content, rather than on top of it. The only problem I'm having with this device is the entire page width doesn't display, and I have to scroll from side to side because zooming (pinch/unpinch) seems to be disabled.

Is this "Who's Online" capability a recently returned feature? Nice to have larger text!

How am I supposed to convert 24 bit Flac files to wav files that I can play in my truck cd player?? My pc will play the 24 bit wav files, but I can't burn a cd for a cd player. Do I need to modify the flac or can I change the wav ?

I don't know the answer to your question. But, if I were in your situation I would first ask wjonjd, then I would post my question to the 30 Trips thread. Finally, I might do some simple experimentation with Audacity to see if I could get something to work. Hope this helps.

Wilfordtjones is correct. The "Audacity" software program can make the necessary format conversions to allow you to burn cd's of these files. Send me PM if you are still in need of assistance in making these conversions.

No worries! For other folks who may be looking, search for the Ride Board.

I can't get the 30th day to download. The link leads to http://rhino.edgeboss.net/download/rhino/gdead/30days/undefined/day30_o… which than says "File not found" I tried to download all 30 days in one download but it is giving me 30 Days of Dead 2016 instead of 2017. On my PC, Win10, using Chrome. Have also tried Opera and Firefox.
