Site too slow and too elaborate

Browsing from the UK the site is way tooo slow ( and I do have a fast connection) and clunky. Navigating is a really painful activity. Even the login screen goes black for quite a time as it checks my password. The previous site was much much more responsive.

The design is far too elaborate for me too - to much of a page is taken up with graphics, borders , pretty edging, and a lot of blackness down the sides ( no reference to Dark Stars etc... please). All these graphics really weight the site down - both in design and responsiveness.

And I seem to have to log in to the store separately to my initial login to the site ( whci is does correctly remember.

Sorry to moan, but the Dead site was always a haven for me - but sadly not so at the moment, although I'm sure it will improve.

New store - postage to the UK

OUTRAGEOUS prices - about three times what they used to be. So now I have to get what I buy sent to my brother in SF (for ONE DOLLAR!), and he can then send it on using a sensible postage rate. Bit pissed about THAT change :-( - I buy most everything, but this makes life harder!

Please get the real story,

Please get the real story, Greg!

your secretary is fucking Columbo! ( -:

I for one, would do my utmost to get to China for any dead related shows (have to have at least Weir, Lesh, Hart, Kreutzman, or TC) for me to really consider it dead related. ( -:

I might even mosey over there in the next year or so... my old lady has been getting a Peking Duck jones like you wouldn't believe... so the question is: is there a really GOOD authentic peking duck restaurant in Shanghai?? (though she prefers the capital city generally speaking) As far as vacation destinations, and other important thangs in life, I am the Boss in the house, but SHE is the decision maker.

enjoy the rest of your travels!!
peace,
CC Joe

Boston Garden 1994

Very nice quote. I was actually just listening to Bye Bye Baby Blue from Fall at the Boston Garden. Those were great shows!

About the China shows. I don't know but this agent sold me Roots tickets and others in the past and so from experience they have followed through. There are big acts coming to China and have played China. Anyway Steve may know them better than i, but i like the under dog so lets see what happens. I will send my secretary to their office when i return to China. Being China you always get the real story when meeting face to face.

Cheers

Greg

hey dude, I remember you.

hey dude,

I remember you. the dead playing in China is total bullshit, Steve fromSingapore commented on how he knew about that tix agent, that just uses name acts to attract people to their site. I even emailed them to ask about it, but never got a reply. anyways, glad to see you here on this site, enjoy Africa!!!

safe travels, happy trails, and go where the climate suits your clothes, by the way, to pick up where all of us left off, go down to the Scene area, check out the spinners spinning free thread... we are all there.
peace,
CC Joe

Mali West Africa

Hello All,

Well i have been traveling over the last week or so and find myself on the Niger River Delta in Bamako Mali. I have also found that this forum has completely changed. Ok, it looks very cool but i have lost all the conversations and contacts that i once had. If anyone remembers me we were talking about the Dead playing in Shanghai, China. Since there are no Dead Heads in China except for myself and i rarely run into Dead Heads while i am traveling in Europe or Africa, so i was looking forward to hearing good music and meeting people who are actually tuned into the world. Anyway i look forward to picking up where we left off.
