phil's bass sound

Since I can't load the 'Got Questions, Ask Here' forum on any computer, and I've tried on five (only when I'm logged in, when I'm logged out works fine but can't post messages then) I'm going to ask here: Does Phil's bass sound on Dick's Picks 25 Disc 1, Good Lovin' remind anyone else of bouncing tennis balls? I think that's what it reminds me of, in a good way of course.

I think

what would be likeliest to produce what you're describing is that you've somehow got the comments sorted Oldest First when you used to have them Newest First? Other than that, there have certainly been isolated instances of weirdness, but nothing consistent.

Topic dates

I haven't posted in a while however when I log on many of the latest posts are from 2009 is there a system glitch?

re: got questions, ask here....

Nope, still not working...I have tried what you suggested but to no avail. argh. Still gotta go to forums as well to view this topic. It times out from 'my recent posts' and 'all recent posts' just the same...

well

as to the second problem, I'm not getting it, so it's hard to say. You may be getting it when something is resetting.

In general, the View All Recent Posts does not refer to your account specifically, whereas the My Recent Posts, generally speaking, does. The All Recent Posts seems to be for the convenience of random souls checking in from remote corners of the net. If you're logged in, you will be much better served by the My Recent Posts link, or the Recent Posts shown under your account on the left.

Hope this helps.

In addition...

I get a message that reads HTTP 500 Internal Server Error when I try to read new posts for the forum topics 'Got Questions Ask Here' and 'Technical Problems - Forums, Features, etc.'

Other details read:

Most likely causes:
•The website is under maintenance.
•The website has a programming error
What you can try:
Refresh the page.
Go back to the previous page.
More information
This error (HTTP 500 Internal Server Error) means that the website you are visiting had a server problem which prevented the webpage from displaying.

Is anyone else getting that, too? Sometimes with this topic, I can't view new posts from the 'All Recent Posts' button. I have to go to forums, then the topic to view new entries. I can't view the 'Got Questions, Ask Here' thread at all. It'd be interesting to know the technical reasons behind these bugs, as I am quite fascinated by computers and coding (not that I have much exerience with it).

pardon me for asking, but...

What's the use of having a 'View All Recent Posts' button if they don't show all recent posts? The recent posts are not displaying (at least on my machines) for the latest installment of the Taper's section. In addition, I've been posting to the orphaned Taper's Section entries that are floating around somewhere in Dead.net space (everywhere but where they should be of course (in the rundown with the other entries in the TS) so that maybe others can possibly locate them. These posts are not appearing in 'All Recent Posts'. Of course, this problem doesn't amount to a hill of beans for everything else that's fubared around here. Is it time for a complete overhaul of the site? Every time I think I've seen quite possibly the last unworking link or crazy problem, another one crops up. I bet I'm not the only one that's frustrated.
That said, this site is better than nothing (although I like it better as it was last year) and I try my best not to look a gift horse in the teeth. It's just becoming a comedy of errors though.
