Something truly magical has happened. Recently I felt compelled to re-read Wendy Weir's book In The Spirit: Conversations with the Spirit of Jerry Garcia. While reading through the pages, I felt a presence driving me to put the book down and write a poem. A poem which I had then submitted to The Standard Literary Magazine for a December contest to win a $100 Gift Card. I really feel I was contacted by Jerry's spirit and the words of my poem are what he told me. It's all still in the process of publication right now, but if there is any way to get this message through to Bob Weir and the boys, I wish to tell them somehow what Jerry told me. I think they could go to Soldier's Field in July with a new song to offer to the people. Please help me reach out to Bob. I feel like it's something I have to do. Much love to all, my email is firstname.lastname@example.org and my cell number 8145906671. Thank you all so much for being you. -Jared
Does anyone have stories about getting to a Grateful Dead show? I'm in the beginning stages of creating a documentary about getting to a show, more specifically, the experience of giving/getting a "miracle". I am looking for all stories of how Deadheads got to shows.
I was only 12 when Jerry died and my parents weren't Deadheads, though some of their friends were, so I would hear some great stories from them as I grew up. Towards the end of highschool, I got into jam bands and through going to festivals and shows, I met more Deadheads and heard more stories. The announcement of the "Fare Thee Well" shows has inspired me to finally produce the film I've had rolling around my head for years.
If you have a story you'd like to share, I'd love to hear it. And thanks in advance for sharing!
Try this for problem B: Compose a PM to someone, enter the first several letters of that dead freak's name into the 'To:' field of the PM. Then, watch the magic ensue (autofill). As for the making the names 'clickable' in chat, I wouldn't hold your breath. It's a pretty bare bones chat, probably by design. Lord knows stranger things can happen, but we'll see...
It would be great to be able to click on a username in the chat so I could answer a question PM. This is useful when someone has asked a question that has already been answered but rolled off. I understand it is annoying to see the same info posted again and again but I would help them out if I could send a PM.
Also is there a way to search on a screen name to find them to send a PM. That would aslo work. Right now you can only see the top few users logged on so even if they are in the list somewhere you can't get to them.
follow the directions on Dead50.net.

it's not us, it's your browser settings. The View menu (or equivalent) should have various options to make it more readable. (Hey, I'm old, and have the font blown up pretty big!)
If you are using a laptop or desktop pc, you can control the size of the page by holding down the ctrl key on your keyboard and while doing that press the + sign key to make the screen larger or the - sign key to make the text on the screen view smaller. Not sure if this is what you're looking for. I'm no spring chicken either, but I had to press ctrl minus once for the site to layout to my satisfaction. Your mileage may vary.
I hope that this gets posted as a new post and not a reply to what's already been written. I just saw this new version of dead.net and I'm sure a lot of effort went into it but I just have to say that the text is way too small. It's like type 3 font. I have to strain to read this. And if I'm straining to read this then there's a lot of deadheads 50 and older who are unfortunately struggling with this too. Again, the new version of this site is probably great but the people responsible for designing it have got to change this right away. I'll check out the rest of the site but for gods sake this smaller than humanly possible to see FONT is a glaring error. I can hardly read what I'm typing in my comments.
