Changed puzzle ID to 891, still no puzzle :-(
8:44 am
Dr_God

Really, really sorry, folks. I made a grave error before going to bed last night, and I just realized it caused the puzzle not to be created for today. :(

It's all fixed now.

thanks guys
9:12 am
EvaNadine

ok, now that i can actually see the stats everyone was describing yesterday, can someone explain to me how the gray, white yellow and everything all works?
9:12 am
lola100

Thank god (dr god?)! So that was what life was like before babble *shudder*. Hi all :)
9:14 am
Anj

Evanadine, yellow are the active root letters, light grey are the number of words made using that active root letter, dark grey means no words start with letter or you've got the ones that are :)
Think that makes sense...

Hi Lola - nice icon ;)
9:15 am
EvaNadine

thanks anj...makes sense once you start using it and seeing how it changes....very helpful not only to have a count by letter, but by each instance of each letter!
9:15 am
lola100

Thanks Anj!
9:18 am

It was a blue brain but it freaked me out.
9:22 am
Dr_God

Nice icon, Anj. ;)
9:23 am
Anj

Cheers Dr God. Nice to see some thick black shades ;)
Their best song if you ask me
9:29 am
Bobsta

WOOOO HOOOOO!!!! Thank you Dr. God.
btw Anj love the icon!!
9:30 am
Jen

Anj, your name was in it yesterday and today mine is! Is this a hidden tribute to the players by Dr_God? :)
9:30 am
Dr_God

Bobsta-

Something didn't go right with your icon. It's still really really huge. I'll go ahead and fix it.
9:31 am
Bobsta

Thanx Dr. God It looks a bit squashed (Which ain't a bad thing cos it makes me look slim!!)
9:32 am
Anj

Hey Jen, must be a tribute thing :) How does it feel to be a j3/10??
9:32 am
Jojojo

Bobsta - you look like one of the cool MC Escher drawings, where he drew reflections of objects in curved surfaces
9:33 am
Bobsta

LOL thanx jojojo
9:33 am
Jen

It's a beautiful thing! I'd like to thank my family and friends for this honor.... ;)
9:33 am
EvaNadine

i hafta say, i *LOVE* the stats for pro babble!
im definitely gonna save a lotta paper this way!!
:D
9:33 am
GingerUK

Great to see the puzzle back... thanks Dr_God!
9:33 am
Anj

..encore, encore! :)
9:34 am
Dr_God

Ok. Refresh your browsers, everybody. Bobsta's icon will be a little quicker to load now that it's 48x48 and not 1632x1224. ;)
9:36 am
Bobsta

Fank Yoo Dr. God. ;o)
9:37 am
lola100

First, how do I set up an icon in babble pro? That's too cool.

Also, stats have three A blocks. Does that mean A words of different lengths? Or is it a glitch?

Ty bobsta :))
11:41 am

Julie, click on you profile - the icon is in the top right - click on edit and then either go online to grab a buddy or use one of your own :)
11:41 am
DarleenMB

Julie (trying again here) the stats mirror the word grid
11:42 am
sherb

Julie - I had the same question...click on the help link at the bottom of the stats panel, and it explains it all beautifully :)
11:45 am
Minski

Babble won't add a word when I hit enter. I have to click on the add button every time. Annoying.
11:45 am
EvaNadine

julie, the blocks in the grid directly relate to each letters position in the grid.
11:46 am

Must have been a blip. Now it's working just fine. Stupid computer.

I should just come on and say hello, how are things?
11:58 am
Dr_God

Question of the day:

Let's all vote on a new feature I thought I might add. How would you guys feel about a little country flag icon appearing next to all your names so we know where you're located?

I'm on the fence about the whole idea. Let me know what you think.
11:59 am
Denny

Like that idea Dr God - how about a clock showing time differences too?
12:00 pm
GingerUK

I like that idea Dr-God!!!
12:00 pm
baggo

Dr God I think thats a great idea!! 8)
12:01 pm
EvaNadine

i think that would be fun...at the very least, it would help us know when someone isnt a native english-speaker and might need a little more help with the tougher words in the puzzle...
12:01 pm
mzhokie

I like the Flag idea myself.
12:02 pm
EvaNadine

this might be above/beyond what youre looking to do, but what about profiles that other people can see?
so someone could clik on your username and see location, age, how long youve been playing....whatever info we enter...
12:04 pm
Dr_God

evanadine-

Not a bad idea. I might just do that. Everyone? Whaddaya think about having full-blown profiles? The profiles would of course be optional.
12:06 pm
Anj

Yup, I can with that. You could say as little or as much as you like.
12:07 pm
GingerUK

I guess it would be ok to have profiles but they are only as good as the info put on them... I like the flag isea so even if you don't want to include a profile you can at least say what country iof that makes sense.

Would everyone be able to fill a profile... pro and normal?
12:07 pm
EvaNadine

i figure we all get to know each other on here from chatting so much, why not?
i guess it would require some sorta monitoring, but i think it would be fun.
:)
12:07 pm
DarleenMB

EXCELLENT idea!
12:07 pm
baggo

that doesn't sound bad to me...then i won't goof. when I know that lots of you aren't in the us
12:08 pm
Dr_God

GingerUK-

Only Pro players could have profiles.
12:08 pm
GingerUK

what EvaNadine said makes sense... about monitoring.... this can create an admin nightmare.........
12:08 pm
Denny

how about a timer as well that we can individually activate each time we play - just for fun. maybe each puzzle could have a target time?
12:10 pm
Dr_God

GingerUK & evanadine-

I don't think it would require much monitoring. The Babble community is pretty self-policing. If anything regarding a profile needed my attention, you guys could just let me know.
12:10 pm
EvaNadine

i think there could be appointed monitors...or there could be a "report this profile" button on each page...anyone who is found to have an indecent profile gets their account frozen. and since its only gonna be pro babble players (and thus people who paid money) i think the incidents would be minimal...
12:12 pm
baggo

testing new icon..it's better than the faeries
12:13 pm
Anj

There are word filters that can censor any dodgy stuff, although I must admit i'm not in favour of that...
12:15 pm
torgone

I vote yea on the flag and profile suggestions. I really don't think there would be that much attention required. Most everyone seems fairly mature here, and besides there is always the direct "send a message" button if anyone has a concern.
12:17 pm
GingerUK

any help on the 'j's please? I have 1 that sounds like alcoholic drinks.....
12:18 pm
EvaNadine

i think there are pros and cons to every idea...but i think you have to risk the negative if you wanna make things even better than they already are!
:)
12:19 pm
EvaNadine

GingerUK -- there are a total of 3 that sounds like those drinks.
then there are 2 (singular and plural) that are a type of leap/jump done in ballet
12:19 pm
GingerUK

thanks EvaNadine!!

12:26 pm
EvaNadine

ginger, they all sound like the same drink, so jus tplay with the spelling....2 plural, one singular....
12:27 pm
Jen

groovy, thanks
12:27 pm
wilson27fan

It's not that i can't get a credit card I just don't want one because people tend to put themselves in debt with them :))
12:28 pm
EvaNadine

wilson, just curious, are you in the states?
seems over here, its impossible to live life as an adult without one...even if you dont use the card, everyone requires that you have a credit history to make any large purchases...easiest way to have a credit history is to have a card...
12:30 pm
torgone

It's almost the only way to purchase anything on the internet.
12:30 pm
baggo

wilson, i have no credit cards just a debit card, which is what i used...
12:31 pm
EvaNadine

im the same as you baggo...just a check card...but i used to have credit cards...
12:33 pm
GingerUK

got them now thanks EvaNadine! :)
12:33 pm
wilson27fan

Lol evadine , Im in W.v. , USA . I have purchased vehicles and land here and have never had a credit card. When I get applications in the mail for credit cards i trash them because I know we would be using them for things we don't really need.Like now , if i had one i would be spending $9.95 to become a pro player which isn't mush but it does add up and the way gas prices are going every extra penny will be going into the gas tank to get my hubby to work and children to sports :))
12:35 pm
EvaNadine

more power to ya wilson!
same reason i got rid of the credit cards...but alas, i think im about to get my first one in years...
i just dont have the willpower to save up, but im really good at making myself pay things off!
12:37 pm
wilson27fan

I only get bills i have to have , we in the US are going to see it rougher and rougher and I have 3 kids to raise so I have to watch what Im doing :))
12:38 pm
EvaNadine

heh, i just have me the 2 cats...cant imagine the 3 kids!!
12:38 pm
Boysaway

any clues for the O word?
12:39 pm
Babbler

hi guys! ; )
Lots of great ideas here today! I especially love Denny's idea of a timer, just for fun. It might save me from RSI and ruining my eyes! (I need help!) : D
Still can't see properly cos old glasses too old, and eye test not until next week.....
I've got a credit card, but I know once I start spending, I can't stop. So I'm not going Pro, however much I'd love to. I look like Natalie Imbruglia! heheheheh
(no seriously I do. Me her -- mirror image!) : D xx
12:39 pm
EvaNadine

O5...the beginning
12:40 pm
Anj

Good shout Wilson. The way the big banks are chucking credit at folk over here in the UK is storing up real misery for the future. I think I read somewhere that each adult owes an average of 7000 (say $12500) each at the moment. It's scary.
12:40 pm
Boysaway

THANK YOU!
12:41 pm
EvaNadine

between my mortgage, car payment, bills, student loans, and now gas prices...maybe i should get my $10 back...hehe
but i say that in jest. its tough to find inexpensive ways to have fun, so 3 cheers for babble!
12:42 pm

evandaline...i just had my first day back at school......can you give me a second letter after the 'o' pls?
12:42 pm
lola100

Hi guys, I'm back! Family are fed and have promised to leave me in peace for a while :) Flags sound great as do profiles. It really would be up to you as to how much info you give out, wouldn't it? We already exchange info about where we live etc anyway.
12:42 pm
AEuser

any chance I can get a breakdown of the C's and M's, I'm missing just one of each
12:43 pm
EvaNadine

rolin -- On
12:44 pm
Dr_God

wilson27fan brought up a good point. Would anyone who doesn't have a credit card (or doesn't want to use a credit card) pay by "eCheck" if I added the ability to do so? I've always thought that no one would use this feature because it requires that you enter your bank info.
12:44 pm
rolin

ya bewdiful....ty
12:44 pm
wilson27fan

ae they are already broke down In the chat.
12:44 pm

Dr God -- I just thought...... what about Paypal?
12:45 pm

there is also a method called "payPal"

12:45 pm
Dr_God

I've thought of adding PayPal, too.
12:46 pm
wilson27fan

Yes Dr.God i think that would be good for those who don't have credit cards,it would be up to the individual wether to add there bank info!!!
12:46 pm
cathy22w

Paypal is excellent
12:46 pm
AEuser

thanks Anj
12:47 pm
wilson27fan

Paypal would be good also :))
12:48 pm
Babbler

apparently, it's not completely safe, but hey, what is?? I trust it for eBay.
12:48 pm
cathy22w

Babbler... I have never had a problem with Paypal - I have used it a lot for Ebay and such. I agree.... what IS 100% safe on here anyway?!
12:49 pm
EvaNadine

i think anytime you send your info out into the world, even through snaik mail, theres a *chance* someone will take it and do bad things with it.
but from what ive heard, PayPal is one of the safest ones...
12:50 pm
Anj

No worries AE - here are the Cs:

ca4/9
ch4/9 x 2
ch4/12
ch5/26
co4/6 x 3
co4/9 x 2
co5/14

Have fun :)
12:50 pm
wilson27fan

When I was selling avon on e-bay i used paypal,I never had any problems with it but as u say nothing is 100% safe !!!
12:50 pm
agzam2

i only enter private information into secure websites .... that have the little padlock at the bottom .... so i am less worried about someone stealing something they shouldn't have

with that said ... it would be nice to have a little something for us "non-pro" babblers ... a link to see who's logged in available to all users
12:51 pm
Babbler

I'm gonna be spending a bomb on new glasses (and a spare pair.... I have learnt my lesson the hard way!!), so I'm being mega strict for now. I might go Pro in the future, Evanadine's right -- this is an inexpensive joy!
12:51 pm
Dr_God

Is anyone currently using the regular Babble site (i.e. www.playbabble.com) or are we all on the beta site (beta.playbabble.com) ?
12:51 pm
EvaNadine

im on beta
12:52 pm

I'm on beta mostly nowadays......
12:52 pm

I was on the other site but this one runs faster and on the other one I couldn't see peoples icons,which I am finding interesting.

beta as of yesterday - although i do have the odd little hiccup with it.... is that normal?
12:53 pm

beta
12:54 pm
Babbler

I get beta hiccups too. Must be normal....
12:54 pm
Dr_God

Hiccups?
12:54 pm
mab

Swynio, cletaes, slet? Dr. G you must shake the box of little tiles more vigorously in future. This is too haaard (whine, complain, make unpleasant facial expressions).
12:54 pm
Anj

...can't get better than a Babble beta :)
12:54 pm
EvaNadine

a few times, the chat log hasnt refreshed itself, so i had to refresh my browser...
12:55 pm
cathy22w

yah... now and again it won't post in the chat thing, or won't list a word or something....
12:55 pm
Babbler

.... or takes ages to take a word.....
........or takes one, only to spew it out later.....
12:56 pm
EvaNadine

ooh, got a meeting in 4 minutes! gotta run!!
12:56 pm
wilson27fan

I had to refresh earlier after i put a word in the chat got an error message and the word didnt go in.
12:57 pm
Babbler

I learnt it's best not to refresh sometimes. But othertimes, it's very necessary. It's instinctive!!
12:58 pm
Anj

I notice a lot of slow down when everyone is posting. My browser usually pauses 5 or 6 times when i'm typing a message depending on the traffic. Sometimes takes a minute or so to shake its feathers...
12:58 pm
Babbler

snap. sometimes it can't cope when a message is coming in, and I've just pressed "Add".
12:59 pm
Babbler

but a little patience is all it needs. I still prefer beta to the 'norma' one.
1:00 pm
Dr_God

My theory on the hiccups is that they're caused by the chat log constantly refreshing itself. I have two potential solutions:

1) Increase the time between chat refreshes
2) Give the user a choice between auto- and manual-refreshing
1:00 pm
agzam2

not having any of those problems with http://www.playbabble.com/ .... except i have to refresh my browser cuz this site doesn't have "auto-refresh"
1:00 pm
Babbler

I love auto refresh. that's why I choose beta over 'normal'
1:02 pm
cathy22w

well... it doesn't really bother me a lot - not sure about anyone else
1:03 pm
Babbler

me neither.
1:03 pm
pk

Dr. God - I vote for a button -- you could turn auto-refresh on or off
1:04 pm
Dr_God

Well,the day has finally come. The old site has been killed off, and the beta site is now the default site.

So no more need to go to beta.playbabble.com. Just www.playbabble.com will do from now on.

(fingers crossed)
1:04 pm
Anj

Gotta say, auto-refresh is more convenient. I can live with the wobbles
1:05 pm

Ooh, Dr G, had a pang of regret there. That old site gave me many hours of pleasure :) I call for a minutes silence........!

a hint for the mi5/14 please, not the underground one
1:07 pm
Dr_God

agzam2-

Force reload your browser (i.e. hold down "Alt" or "Option" while reloading.)
1:07 pm
Anj

Flag's at half-mast... lol
1:08 pm

boysaway -- I think you want plural of : An appearance or aspect.

Boysaway, re-arrange the last 3 letters of your underground mi5
1:09 pm

clue for co 5/14 pleazzzze
1:09 pm

Another solution to the chat log hiccups:

Limit the chat log to the last 100 posts by default with the option of viewing all posts at any time.
1:10 pm

well ... that did fix that problem ... thx

now i don't have a complete puzzle lol .... and ... wow this thing takes forever to load and i'm on high speed internet !!

Dr G - can we still get to the old site when beta's not working? If it hadn't been for the old site earlier today, I'd have just had an error message...instead of which I could share the chat log with others while we waited :)

I'm all in favour of the flags, profiles etc...it would be optional, after all...

Dr_God - Good idea that, but make it 50. And maybe some protection against those times when someone accidentally re-posts the entire log. Oh, and easier puzzles. This one's diabolical!

The only site is now dead. There's no goin' back. May it rest in peace. ;)

where can you find a yiddish dictionary ??

goooot it
1:20 pm

I found the word from sherb's clue because I knew the word but her definition was incorrect and anyone who doesn't know the word wouldn't be able to find it. After I found the word I clicked the ? next to the word for a better definition.

OK -- I truly am addicted 'for life' to Babble!!
Dr. God: agree with flag icons; with limits on chat log as long as we can pull up the entire one if needed; really enjoy not having to wait for the grid to reload with each word. Good job!!

heh, luckily for once it wasnt a "you did bad!" meeting, which my boss usually does since he doesnt back us up on anything.
this time it was a "they wanna make a change and i dont knoww hat im talking about, so i have to ask you" meeting...

Denny, is there a YL word?
1:31 pm
EvaNadine

amen to that lola!
november will be my 5-year anniversary here, and im on manager #3!
#1 retired, #2 left and was a total psycho (but she loved me, does that say something about me?!), and this one, #3, automatically assumes we screwed up if someone else isnt happy and doesnt stand up for us for anything!

A stylized representation of a vulva worshiped as a symbol of a goddess or Shakti.

and yes there is a yl word - found it by monkey fingers but hold on and i will get a definition or clue

Thanks Denny.
Got it.

Of course, how stupid of me!!?!?!

My last boss and his wife and kids became like my second family. I worked for him for over nine years and still visit them whenever I'm back in South Africa. I'm trying to watch Eastenders and babble at the same time, not good!

But Denny, yours has to be the cutest!
1:37 pm
lola100

Denny- Anj "I can't decide on an icon" has an entire library of them, ask him for one! LOL :)
1:37 pm
Denny

not really - just in case i get bored. i like to change things once in a while, like the furniture arrangement. my husband moans at me but i just point out that it is considerably cheaper than redecorating!
1:39 pm
Denny

thanks lola - he is! i get stopped every time we go shopping cos he has the most beautiful smile and big blue eyes - he's a proper charmer! but not when he's locked himself in the bathroom like he did yesterday!
1:40 pm
lola100

Denny- OMG, I'm still waiting for my three year old to do that! How'd you get him out? *she asks for future reference*
1:41 pm
swmbo

My icon was drawn by another Babbler, Calicomo, who is an artist. I use it on my 'other' place. It has been shrunk down a lot, but it represents a little girl being bossy (she who must be obeyed) and wearing a kilt for my Nova Scotian roots. The liitle girl also has ringlets, which I NEVER had when I wa little LOL
1:42 pm
Denny

he just figured it out himself - it's just a simple slide lock, but he was giggling the whole time while i was attempting to break the door down! he then decided to play with it again and voila!
1:43 pm

swmbo - that's soooo cute!

Actually those are the ones I have I need the rest... sorry
1:49 pm
Denny

has everyone gone all central?
1:49 pm

Everyone-

Force reload your browsers.

1:54 pm

so, dr_god...tell us about yourself?
do you get paid to run babble? or is this for fun?
tell us all about the good doctor...or is it improper to ask such things of a deity?
hehe
1:54 pm
Denny

is it supposed to be centralised still?
1:55 pm
Dr_God

Denny-

Centralized?
1:56 pm
agzam2

ty evanadine ..... big help ... all done :)
1:56 pm
Denny

all my screen - chat log, stats, word list and puzzle are all central, not left justified like they were before. also my word list is right at the bottom
1:56 pm
lola100

Yeah, me too. Even tried logging out and coming back, still all weird.
1:57 pm
Denny

i've logged out 2 or 3 times and no change
1:57 pm
agzam2

do an alt refresh .... or option refresh
1:57 pm
Mary

Mine, too, are centralized and you have to go all the way to the bottom to see what words you have or still need.
1:57 pm
EvaNadine

odd, mine looks perfectly normal...
1:58 pm
Denny

i did that agzam but no change - will try logging off compeltly
1:58 pm

Done a few alt refreshes, no good :(

What browsers are you using?

2:00 pm
Boysaway

Can I have an S breakdown please?
2:00 pm
lola100

Internet explorer.
2:01 pm
Dr_God

Denny-

It has to be a cache issue. Because the beta site and the current site use the exact same pages. If you don't mind, can you quit AOL and log back in? That might clear your cache.
2:01 pm
Dr_God

I assume it's version 6.0?

You can try and go to "Internet Options" under the Tools menu and click the "Delete Files..." button under Temprorary Files. See if that helps.

clear ur cookies too .... and the history .... wouldn't hurt
2:05 pm

hmm.trying the non-beta version...dont like the setting out....cant see the word list and grid at the same time
2:05 pm
Denny

no change - logged off etc but still in the middle
2:07 pm
Dr_God

This is all very bizarre. The files from the beta site and the regular site are one and the same as of an hour ago, so there should be no difference. I'm stumped...
2:07 pm
Denny

rolin - i think it may be a problem - me and lola are having the same thing
2:08 pm
rolin

and i cant seem to switch back to beta mode.....oooohhh the gremlins have moved in
2:08 pm

Are either of you running any other progs or resources that could be RAM hoggers?
2:08 pm
Dr_God

Can anyone send me a screen shot of the site if it's not working for them?

feedback@playbabble.com
2:09 pm
EvaNadine

rolin -- dr_god did away with the "old" site, so all there is is beta, even if youre using the old URL
2:09 pm
lola100

Dr God- did as you suggested (often do a disc clean-up anyway) but still no change. Will try logging out and re-starting my computer :)
2:11 pm
Babbler

eeek! just logged back in. Don't mean to sound rude, but I don't like the new look. I like the word list next to the puzzle, it means I can contemplate and figure things out. And messages being centred make them harder to read. The 'old' layout worked very well.
2:11 pm
lola100

Anj- no. Not even listening to music!

Dr God- I'm a bit of a techno idiot- how do you send a screen shot?
2:11 pm
GingerUK

the whole thing is centally justified but is ok... can read everything fine. Takes forever to download the icons though and that's on 2mb braodband!
2:11 pm

need clues for ch 4./9 I have one but need other to complete the c's
2:12 pm
EvaNadine

lola, hit cntrl-and-print screen at the same time. then open up paint or some program like that and paste the image in there.
2:12 pm
Boysaway

it's clearly a selective problem - my view looks just fine
2:12 pm

I think people are seeing things differently depending on unknown factors, my layout is the sale as it has always been but with the buddy icons
2:14 pm
Denny

it's on it's way dr god
2:15 pm
agzam2

i had that problem earlier, but it went away when i did "alt-refresh" as Dr_God suggested .... it worked the first time
2:15 pm
rolin

mine started out as the right layout...but then when i came back to it looking all centred
2:15 pm
Denny

ch4/9 if it's not the talkign one, then think of the italian word for goodbye, but spell it like it's spoken!
2:15 pm
Dr_God

Ok. After lookin at Denny's screen shot, I'm thinking it's definitely a cache issue. You'll have to find some way to clear your browser's cache so it can load the new style sheet and make things look all pretty again.
2:16 pm
Babbler

ahaaa! just did Alt plus refresh........ much better!!!
awwww, all happy now.... : )
2:16 pm
Denny

Dr god for us technophobes can you tell us what to do? i did the delete temp files and cookies.
2:17 pm
rolin

is that alt f5????....cos it didnt work for me...*pout*
2:17 pm
Denny

right i'm gonna close down, watch NCIS and come back at 9pm
2:17 pm
Dr_God

Denny-

I just don't know what to do beyond that. I'm still stumped.
2:17 pm
agzam2

yay!!

lola ... did u hold down "alt" and then click "refresh" ?
2:19 pm
lola100

agzam2- yup, keep trying that, no joy.

2:19 pm
Babbler

have you got a 'page refresh' button on your keyboard?
2:20 pm
Mary

Dr. God, I did everything, Alt & refresh, cleaned the cookies, restarted the entire computer and still the same. My list is way on the bottom, the grid is in the middle, and everything is centralized.
2:20 pm
rolin

no babbler....is it the same as the f5 button?
2:21 pm
Babbler

oooh, I don't know if it's F5. Would you use that on eBay to refresh your page and check how your bids are doing?
2:21 pm
agzam2

rolin .... try holding down "alt" and then clicking "refresh" or "reload" in ur browser window
2:22 pm
rolin

nada...*sigh*...ah well..ill cope
2:23 pm

lol .... no need to be embarrassed ... ur heads in the puzzle :p
2:29 pm
FMitch

How about an optino to view or not to view buddy icons?
2:30 pm
Dr_God

I think I know why. Explorer is having to caches all the icons again now that the site name has changed, and for some reason it's not storing any of them until it downloads them all first, and the chat log is refreshing itself before all the icons can finish downloading. It's a vicious cycle.

I just turned off the chat log auto-update. So everyone refresh their browsers and let's all let the icons download and get stored in cache. :)
2:30 pm
agzam2

yes!! ..... they take a long time to load
2:31 pm
agzam2

400 items being downloaded !!
2:31 pm

Firefox is nice and fast.

I'm only 1mb broadband.

*sniff sniff* i've logged back on after rebooting but it's still the same! i tried that alt refresh thing but no good. i will try another browser if possible

2:39 pm
Dr_God

Well, it looks like Safari and Firefox do quite well with caching the icons and not trying to download them again if they've already downloaded them one. Internet Explorer insists on downloading the same icon over and over again for each post from the same person. Ugh...
2:39 pm
DarleenMB

Ah, yet another reason to go Mac. ;-)
2:40 pm
agzam2

i think an option to view or not view icons is definitely needed .... especially for those who do not have high speed internet
2:41 pm
Dr_God

agzam2-

Definitely. This is on my list of things to do.
2:43 pm
agzam2

lol .... sounds like ur list is pretty long

It's not doing it anymore for me Dr_God ... images are now downloaded and it's no longer insisting on doing it again!

OH help please, this is driving me nuts!! Any clues for the ha 4/14 and ha 5/30 pleeease?

It will only try and download all the images when you refresh. So just stay away from that Refresh button. :)

3:01 pm

still have nan hours and back to downloading icons over and over :(

the list is growing dr_god
3:02 pm
Dr_God

Sorry about the glitches. I decided to wipe out all the files on the server and upload fresh copies, just to see if there were any gremlins hiding about. And refreshing on IE 6 does seem much quicker now, and it seems to only download each icon once.
3:02 pm

The only good thing about IE 6 is that even though it takes forever to download the icons, you can still use the rest of the site while it's downloading them.

Krys - looking at the history of Scrabble (originally called Lexico) the values never changed from its inception...

Lexico was played without a board and players scored on the basis of the lengths of the words formed. There were additional scores for words employing 'minor honours' (B, F, H, M, P, V, W, Y) and a higher additional score for major honours (J, K, Q, X, Z).

Butts calculated the letter frequency and value of each letter of the alphabet by meticulously combing the front page of the New York Times.

He reasoned that too many S's made the game too easy. So he reduced them to 4

Just another reminder to those who just jumped on and to whom the site looks a little funky-

Force refresh your browsers by holding down the "alt" or "option" key while clicking the refresh button.

10:04 pm
Charm

Ji4 - looks like the plural of an alt. spelling of the other Ji4. If that makes sense....

Lexi, not to be a snot, but you could check your spelling?

I have the LE5 - still need the CH4 and one other that I don't even know I am missing - UGH.
10:51 pm
