    30 Days of Dead 2020

    Hello. I was hoping that 30 Days of Dead 2020 will be coming our way in 2 weeks or so. Will there be an email announcement or banner on the main page? Thank you.

    Art project

    I have an idea for an art project and I am wondering where is the best place to ask for tape covers with hand written set lists and / or cool drawings that aren't being used. I would 100% pay for shipping.

    Rock on!

    hey 143!
    They still exist, but I don't think they're active. I think technology may have overtaken it all to some extent; it pretty much comes down to whether people still want to do things that way. It was fun to get those DVDs in the mail...

The fan photos that are (sometimes) getting uploaded and approved, but never appearing. Still working on this. The even worse problem of posts mysteriously disappearing: we think we're narrowing it down, but meanwhile, please, DO NOT POST YOUR ONLY COPY OF SOMETHING GREAT HERE. It may vanish for no reason, and it ain't the mods. We know the problem exists; we haven't solved it yet. Thank you for your continued patience...

Does anyone have the Grateful Dead version of this song (no the Jerry Garcia one)? I used to have a tape I beieve from Penbroke Pines FL venue with a killer version of this song and I am eagerly trying to find another one. Thanks! Whit Low

I do not see this show listed anywhere on this sight. The show with NRPS was at the Fieldhouse in Iowa City,Ia.Ticket prices,$2.50.$3.00,$3.50. I remember the Riders came out at 7:30 and the Dead left the stage at almost 1am. My first show.

and as soon as we have an answer we'll post it. Meanwhile, as posted elsewhere, the downloads are alive and well on iTunes, so if that format works for you, go for it.

No, doesn't require an iPod, and the iTunes software has Mac and PC versions. You can play the music, burn CDs, etc. and never use an iPod at all. I used it for years before I bit the bullet and bought the iPod, and boy did I look silly sitting in the airport listening to tunes on my iBook... The more audiophile among us think there may be better audio formats than the one iTunes uses, so you may want to wait for them to weigh in here. (Or ask over in the Technical Discussion topic in Tapers.)

Thanks for the info. It just seems foolish to me that the Download Series is no longer available, hopefully it is short term and will return. Ratdog, Gov't Mule, Phish, Widespread Panic, and many more all have downloads for sale on their sites, seems like it would be purely a cost effective profit maker as there is no hard product to manufacture, ship, etc. I saw a posting on here the other day by someone that said "alot of Heads he knew are in fact dead", given that statement and the fact that we all are getting older, common sense would tell you that there are less of us today than there was 10 years ago, the longer it takes to get the music out there, the fewer sales there ultimately will be. Don't get me wrong, I am ecstatic every time a new archive release comes out like Three from the Vault, and I do purchase them all, but it should have come out years ago. (Don't get me started on the JGB stuff!) I realize it takes time to remaster stuff, and there is no way to do this every piece of tape in the vault, but it doesn't matter that every show is sonically perfect, the demand is there. If you take look at the Internet Archive at http://www.archive.org/details/GratefulDead and see how many times each show has been downloaded, this proves my point and if they charged a fee to download from there instead of allowing just the streams, that would be a hell of alot income for the band and its staff. Yes I agree the old philosophy that the music is "free" doesn't apply anymore, but it would make alot of people happy if they just made it available. I'll get off my soapbox now.

I am sure many would share my sentiments. I have enjoyed the new site thus far, the Tapers Section is great, met a few new people already, I'm sure it will only continue to grow.

I made a post in the families forum on July 3. It was there later in the day as I logged on to let my wife read it. Today (July 4) I went back to the forum to read any new posts and my post was not there. I'm not very computer savvy, but am curious has to how and why this happened. Thanks so much for any enlightenment on this.Peace.

Okay, the first paragraph in the current Tapers Section that has a link is this: "Our first selection is from 7/3/69 in Colorado Springs, and features the best He Was A Friend of Mine (MP3 18.41MB) these ears have ever heard. Please note that is drawn from the cassette master, as this tour was recorded only to cassette and not to reels, so it does sound a little hissy, but this rendition is so darn good, it’s easy to overlook the minor sound issues." In the actual text, "He Was A Friend of Mine" is a link. Position your cursor strategically on said link, hold down the control key, and hold down the mouse button. A pop-up menu will offer you various options, including Play Song in iTunes and Download Linked File. Choose the option you prefer. Should you choose iTunes, it will probably think about it for a bit and then start playing the tune. Should you choose Download, your download window will open and you should be able to monitor the file's progress and then play in in the app of your choice. Including iTunes. Hope this helps. If it doesn't, speak up!

I am getting an "access denied" message when I try to upload a photo. Is this a temporary thing?Or is it just me? I went through a whole bunch of topics but didn't any discussion about this. Thanks!

Unkljohn, the photo upload got broken on a server migration a week or so back and is on the short list to be fixed. It's not you, TMOT. Chubbycat, the short version is that on this site only mods (i.e. izzie and me) can start topics. As to other sites, DNC works the same way, the Ratdog site lets you start topics to your heart's content, etc. We don't think this is the One True Path, but for the moment it's what fits the software limitations and other issues here. If you want a topic on a particular subject, you're heartily encouraged to post in the What Else Should We Be Talking About topic, or send a PM to izzie or me. We're generally pretty responsive, at least I hope we are. Thanks!

Would be cool if could be subcategories of that function ie: Forum topic, venue, show, etc. and we could click on one category at a time, instead of having them all mixed together. Just a thought.

Check the FAQs; we will announce it when the thing is fixed, believe me. As far as the map goes, it's a Google Map kind of deal, so any difficulties you're having are Google rather than dead.net. However, we have noted with U.S. addresses that it needs an exact street address before it will mark you on the map. If you've done this and you're still having trouble, please speak up. As to your missing post, I'm at a loss. It's not in the spam queue and it's not in the topic. Something has clearly malfunctioned, and I'm sorry. Please post again if you'd be so kind. Thanks! We'll keep an eye on the situation.

The fan photos are moderated, so they're not immediately accessible when you upload them. (This is mostly to head off such things as the uploading of, say, Jim Marshall's photos by people other than Jim Marshall.) If the problem persists, we're dealing with something else, so speak up... Thanks!

...shall we go, you and I while we can... This place has been here for six weeks or so and I'm seeing the complaints outweighing the compliments about two to one . Izzie and Marye got tossed into a definite work in progress. They were honest about that from day one. Look, If the Grateful Dead experienced that much negativity at the beginning when things didn't work right, the music was sloppy, the venue sucked,, we wouldn't be hear today, 'cause the band would have called it quits. The initial scene thrived on what was going right and how to build on it.Let's try that here. See 'cause how many times do people need to hear that the store isn't fully connected with the site, that opening new topics isn't gonna happen in the forums,etc. There's a lot of arch tone and unnecessary sarcasm that's well, frankly juvenile. Wheather it was Watkins Glen Or the Berkely Community center, Woodstock or Anchorage, Alaska, I always saw the faithful in the audience adapt to the situation with the same smile, ,cause they knew something great was about to happen. The same thing can be true here. After all, what do we really want, lindley Meadows or Altamont??? Give it some thought,and sure if you got a gripe, you can always express it in a pleasent manner. Be sure to say something nice along the way as well, it will come back to you.

Would probably help if people read through the posts in the sections about technical problems BEFORE they post new complaints. If problem has already been brought up, then would be kinder NOT to be repetitive and post, or if the person absolutely can't help themselves, then to say something very mild like: "XYZ problem, ditto" or "me too". izzie and Marye have said they will keep us informed on fixes and updates, and they WILL. They are doing a great job, with a monumental task, and no need to stress them with the s.o.s. over and over.

Sometimes when I log in, the whole section under "dead community" on the left is all black, and sometimes I can see "All recent posts, Member map, Members, Who's online" etc. Does anybody else have this phenomena? Does anybody know why it happens?

I am using Mozilla as a browser. Whole column under the cursive text "dead community" is just a black box. Can see no individual text in the box, other than the who's online text. Also cannot click on anything in this black field. Happens about 30% of the times that I log in. Also happens that if I log out, close Mozilla, and then log back in, all text and functions are back. Seems to be a temporary black hole or something-I have no clue what it could be. Was wondering if I were the only one with this, as I took my own advice and looked for someone else asking about this before I posted ;-)

I'm using Firefox too, but on a Mac. I've had the occasional weirdness, but never black boxes... TigerLilly, next time this happens, can you do a screen shot and email it to us so we can pass it to the techs? The problem may not be on this end, but at least they can check it out.
