Got issues with something? Wish we were doing something differently? Speak up here!
could someone possibly change the filter box on All Recent Posts so that it defaults to <> and not <> A tiny, but nifty piece of streamlining..with so much on site now I find this route is the quickest way to find out what's new and it also helps keep me away from the Tapers Section (I worry about turning into one of those people who stop and stare at car wrecks) thankee kindly
please correct the previous to read ..so that it defaults to ALL and not VENUE.
I find that even though it says it's defaulting to Venue it actually serves up everything new regardless of category. Shows, venues, stories, pictures... Is this not what you're getting?
OK Marye, either you're right and I'm mad or I'm mad and you're right!! swear it didn't used to do that and the list came out sort of randomised my excuse is that we had a huge thunderstorm two nights ago and all the electrics here got scrambled, including my router and my brain it seems btw like the PM upgrade!
I like the PM upgrade too. Can post to multiple contacts now, WaHoo!!!!!!!!!!!!
...mad round here means crazy not angry :-)
I was just headed over to the awards topic to give our own Pat_Rhino the Please Mr. Postman award for the PM upgrade.
I want to leave a post for discussion... Why can't I do that? :^} It can ring - turn night to day It can ring like fire when you lose your way
that's how the software works here. If there's a topic you'd like to have launched, send a PM to me or izzie. We're usually reasonably responsive. Thanks.
Well, it's like 5am here and I can't sleep. I work nights so normally I should be awake away but, on the weekends I change my sleeping patterns around. Argh!? Anyway, today my daughter is coming over to visit for the weekend. I am really looking forward to seeing her and spending quality time with her. What else?? Oh...yeah I am trying figure out my checkbook. It looks like I messed up the adding and now have an extra $100! Hmmmm?
HOW DO I CHANGE SOMETHING THAT I POSTED?
I really wish people wouldn't use such big words. Can anyone out there use this in a sentence and really know what it means? I guess My statements are everywhere? Peace!!! Just venting
short version, you can't, due to assorted software issues it takes too long to go into. However, if you send me and/or izzie a PM pointing us to the post in question and telling us what you want it to say, we can fix it for you. Just ask, thanks.
Gee, Steve, I use it all the time. So do my friends. Maybe it's a Bay Area kinda deal.
Must be a west coast thing. How would 1 use it in a sentence. I feel stupid.
no stupidity involved if you've never had occasion to cross paths with the word, which, as you suspected earlier, is more or less synonymous with "everywhere," except it's an adjective. (Why yes, I AM an English major...) Sentence: "The Dead were in town for a run of shows, and tie-dye was ubiquitous."
marye is right. A well-put together concise sentence can be much more clever than a long, flowery one, full of big words, that makes no sense. I missspelled " a lot" in an earlier post. Two teeny tiny words, not "alot" like I wrote. THAT is more heinous than not having stumbled across "ubiquitous". ************************************************************** Don't part with your illusions.

I feel much better now!! 95 and prior, tye-dye was ubiquitous in my closet, not so much anymore. How's that?
(despite the distinct possibility that Steve is just goofin' with us...) I think one thing that affects how often I hear the word is the Silicon Valley thing (I used to edit a computer magazine years ago, and a lot of my pals are techies). Between the engineers and the PRoids, the word gets used a lot, as in "ubiquitous connectivity," "ubiquitous wireless," etc. It's practically a buzzword in those circles, which probably has to do with why it's so commonplace here.
Ubiquitous is starting to become too ubiquitous here, you know what I mean? Cool, groovy, far out and whatever. Do I contradict myself? Very well then I contradict myself, (I am large, I contain multitudes.) Walt Whitman-Song of Myself
for a new word?********************************** Don't part with your illusions. When they are gone, you will still exist, but you have ceased to live. Samuel Clemens
For a new word that is. Mayre, I wasn't kidding I had never heard that word before. I feel we learn something new everyday!!!! Thanks
not a new word to us but do you know what it means? ex. The Deadheads live in a cryptical envelopment. Anyone else have an example? (it is listed in The Free Dictionary by Farlex -Google it) Do I contradict myself? Very well then I contradict myself, (I am large, I contain multitudes.) Walt Whitman-Song of Myself
I need to look that up, but I tend to assume it's the same root as cryptic, encryption, stuff like that -- secret codes and stuff. then there's "quodlibet," as in "quodlibet for tenderfeet." Which, back in my young days of Latin studies, I coulda told you what it meant, but now, no. My smartass Latin says it means "whatever the hell you want," but hey, my Latin dictionary is all the way across the room...
Either a topic for (or exercise in) philosophical or theological discussion, or a light-hearted medley of well-known tunes. Do I contradict myself? Very well then I contradict myself, (I am large, I contain multitudes.) Walt Whitman-Song of Myself
Hal gets my intellectual of the week vote for that BUT Did the Dead spell Quodlibet as Quadlibet because they couldn't spell or because there is some secret and very clever joke involved? Also Is there yet a word for running around the streets with a laptop looking for unsecured wireless networks to get online with? Its fun! bye
Coscmicbadger - it is called warwalking, on a bike warbiking and in a car it is wardriving. There are also codes that people place outside of unsecured wireless with chalk, it is called warchalking and was inspired by hobo symbols that they used outside of homes for handouts. Warning and disclaimer - this may be illegal in certain countries. Do I contradict myself? Very well then I contradict myself, (I am large, I contain multitudes.) Walt Whitman-Song of Myself
i've been asking the same question since june...why is the postage rate to canada $11 per cd? that is unheard of..i buy alot of cd's from the u.s and the rates are usually $2 per cd or at most $4 for the first and $1 ea after that...and they use the same mail as you do? this is preventing me from placing orders from this website...the last time i asked this i got a rude answer saying it was being looked into....but how long does it take? canada is only next door to the u.s , so to charge us this rate is depressing...
I blame Canada! Blame Canada! Blame Canada! It seems that everything's gone wrong since Canada came along. Blame Canada! Blame Canada! They're not even a real country anyway. When Canada is dead and gone, there'll be no more Celine Dion! And so, the draft will begin tomorrow as more and more troops are needed to invade the Canadian border. The Canadian government pleads for a peaceful resolution, but naturally, we're not listening. Oh, good job Mrs. Broslofski. Thanks a lot!
When the sight was redesigned and it was relaunched, I was under the impression that there was new life for the Grateful Dead as far as new releases and new merch but that has'nt happened. Seems that everything has been put on hold for the foreseeable future. Is it really finished? Are there some legal reasons that we are'nt seeing as many new releases per year as a year and a half ago? Are the vaults for the most part sealed indefinitely? Is GDP still in charge of the output of new merch or has that been taken over by a different entity? Do the surviving band members still have a say or any input on what and when things are released? Now that it's Halloween and the Grateful Dead tradition for musical treats has been broken, will there be any new (unreleased music) offerings available for the fans to purchase by years end? Do other people that are a part of this forum share any of these concerns? Should I just give up on expecting anything new and just start supporting the free trade of quality soundboard/multi-track bootleg/pirated recordings because the well appears to have run dry? I was really hoping for some beginning of the holiday season great news but can't help but feel somewhat let down. Sorry for being a bummer but I'm somewhat disappointed.
...........not including 3FTV and Cow Palace, the only things to come out for nearly 2 years it seems.
Spacebrother, I hope some of your questions have been answered. At least for now.
Thanks Izzie. I pretty much check this sight daily hoping for news of new releases and just when I was on the verge of giving up hope, there it is, a brand new release and series. I hope this is just the beginning of the floodgates being opened wide because of the wealth of material. I'm happy that it's from an under-represented year from Brents tenure (the Brent era being my favorite), even if it's taken from different shows (which I don't mind). Here's to wishing for the Alpine '87 run (regardless of the quality in the vault) in it's entirety, Laguna Seca '88 or really anything and everything from '88-'90. Incidently I think the compilation aspect will come in handy particularly during the Vince/Bruce-Vince era.
How could we not empathize with you on your 10/31 post? What just happened to you is kinda like what was happening to most of those fans at Winterland (and most other Dead fans) right before Phil finally played the intro to Dark Star on 12/31/78. I was relatively new to the scene at that time but it was a big deal back then and still is today. A lot of Dead fans were getting what they needed for a lot of shows and then ... they got what they wanted. Is patience still a virtue? God, let's hope so. Are anger and being quarrelsome about money acceptable in the Grateful Dead world (huge breath before I run) - God, let's hope not. "From day to day, just lettin' it ride, You get so far away from how it feels inside, You can't let go, 'cause you're afraid to fall, But the day may come when you can't feel at all."
I'm Grateful (pun intended) that there is finally news and by nature I'm patient. It's great to see the ball rolling again. Now about that '88 Laguna Seca, '90 Eugene and '87 Alpine box................................
could Rhino please cancel all these new releases at once. They are seriously distracting me from complaining, making inane postings, indulging in childish word play,trying to win important quizzes and discussing the weather. You'd think they would have some consideration by now ! Honestly!
so, is the taper's section over? please let us know.
It is not dead. Some things failed to converge this week and they're working on getting it together. The big fat server meltdown has no doubt slowed things down a bit. When I learn more I'll post it, if TS isn't up by then.
much to be thankful for. everything is back up and running. and, to top it off, finally a new release in what i hope is a lengthy number of releases. after all the rhino bashing (which i've been involved in) i placed my order as soon as i could. hypocrisy or addiction? you be the judge ...
But I can't seem to find where he is posted as a topic. I know that several of us wished him a Happy Birthday. Could he and John Perry Barlow be listed in the subsection Grateful Deadunder section Grateful Dead along with the other band members where they both belong? It's just not right that it is easier to find a topic Lilly Allen on this site than Robert Hunter. Thank You.

Just thinking that it would be a good thing to have a separate forum for "In search of old friends" and another for "In search of things needed". I feel bad for those looking for old tour buddies when the In search of forum is filled with over 360 odd posts and rapidly filling up with more, most of which are for THINGS not family. Many folks may not find who they are looking for because there are too many posts for people to be bothered wading through. Some editing would be needed to put the existing names/posts into the new forum of course. Did I say how nice it is to have this place? Thanks again! ;) Jerry Christmas and may enlightenment come to all this festive season!!! Much Love, Jody Are you kind?
It probably does make sense to divide up the next incarnation of the topic, but I can seriously assure you that the existing one isn't going to be edited and reposted, any more than Introductions or What Are You Listening To Now. It was created as a general In Search Of and it'll stay that way until the new version emerges, and remain readable thereafter. Which isn't to say that those still searching for tour buddies can't repost, of course!
In Search of... has been reborn as three topics, one each for People, Info and Stuff. Search on!
