    Hey there Y'all -
    My Daughter was sorting through my records lately and found two unusual records (seem to be from a radio broadcast in 1981 on the NBC young adults network). If these are of value to the archive I would be glad to send them to the right person.
    Thanks

    Is the old site still running? There is still guest access and it looks like there are recent posts, but requests to reset my password go unanswered.

Sometimes people post a series of photos and I notice if I comment on one of them it removes it from the series and takes it to the top of the latest post list, disrupting the original series. Is there a way that the person posting the series can note on page that it is part of a series of say, five and a way that the viewer can easily look at the series?Also, someone here in one of the forums mentioned some topics being buried beneath other topics. Is there a list of all forums? Perhaps I am just missing some obvious accessibility but there are certain forums that haven't been posted in, in awhile and I would like to go back and read. For example I am always looking for a good book to read and if I dig around I could probably find that book forum but I would love a big old list. Peace & Music from old Docks here, on dialup, in more ways than one. Again, Peace

If users who upload photos that are a sequence would include a sequence number in the subject line it might make it easier for other users to follow that sequence, especially if the upload user's identity would return to the fan photo page layout (hint, hint.) If you go to a user's page all their uploaded photos can be found there. Regarding the forums, if you look at the top of left side of any page you should see a nav section titled "table of contents." The sixth major item from the top is the doorway to all forum topics regardless of how recently anyone has posted in them. It will take a little poking around to figure out where everything is as there are many nooks and crannies holding the melted content. Sorry, couldn't resist. Perhaps if there was a page structured like an exploded tree of links to all forum topics (sort of like a site map) it might make it easier for users to find specific topics more readily. Dialup? Ouch. I feel your pain. Conversation is always more interesting than recitation, so speak your mind and not someone else's.

that "melted content" does rather rule the day. For example, you'll find almost as many people looking for tix in Tix Offered as people with tix for sale. So discussions are not always where you expect to find them. Hence you may find that search feature in the left-had bar useful also. E.g. if you want to find all discussions involving the Gorge, you can do a search for "The Gorge" and it'll bring up everything with the reference.

What is there like 514 pages on deadnet? Why could'nt you give each page a specific number, alphabetical order the topics and maybe have a spot on the home page for search topic {like google} to access topics or pages quicker. If you could remember a specific number, it would be much easier to relate a number with a topic.Just my opinion, Phatmoye

the really short answer to that is that while we're looking at ways to make the place a bit more navigable, the fact is that the software on which this site runs is seriously deficient in dealing with some of these issues and some things are more fixable than others. Also, there IS a search function right there on the left, right above My Dead.net, which should help somewhat. But believe me, we're aware of the situation and trying to do what we can.

hey now, I was wondering if you could tell me who I might speak to about volunteering on spring tour.I trained with Calico. I passed out garbage bags in the rain with her at Alpine 89'. Whatever I can do to help make shakedown street a safe and fun experience, sign me up.I remember when the only way I knew what day of the week it was by my ticket stub. I couldn't wait to get to a dead show just so I could change my clothes.

Not having ordered Gorge tickets, I can't speak to the status, but you might get a more direct answer by going to the GDTSTOO.com site and contacting the ticket ladies directly.

historically still cameras including SLRs have never been a problem and video cameras almost always have. However, I would check with the venue as different ones have different policies.

I get the sense that they are shipping the hard tix out really late to prevent scalping, but you should have them in plenty of time. There's a lot of discussion of this in the various venue topics, so you might want to compare notes with people over in the relevant venue topics (e.g. Meet Me in Buffalo).

if in doubt, sign up for the email list again. Also, if you're already signed up and didn't get the notice, check your spam filter, because misbehaving spam filters have been known to grab vital messages!

I would like to know if GDTS sends out an e-mail before they send off the tix or do they send them out and they show up at the door??? I'm still waiting on 2 for 4/22 in Wilkes-Barre. From the Western Union in Ottawa here they do not do any american money orders so I sent a canadian money order. Know I relize that they asked for american money orders only and with the exchange I could be short by 2 or 3 dollars with our dollar falling since Jan. It will be a true miricale if the folks at GDTS can fix my order up and send some sweet tix. Any experiences out there with GDTS fixing things like this???

I would go to the GDTSTOO site and take it up with the ladies directly. Someone posted the latest mailing status in the tour topic, and I think Wilkes-Barre is just now in process, but I could be misremembering.

Thanks Marye, I have been asking and the latest word they tell me is that they have mailed my tix!!!! I can't believe it after I royaly screwed up my order, they made it right and have sent my order out. I allready have tix through Consider it Dan but with these now I can bring my 19 son who worked the winter on the ski hills out in BC and is coming back for the summer. I will now be stalking the mailman for a couple of days. LOL Fare Thee Well
