Did Something Just Change on FR?
Free Republic ^ | 3/13/09 | Me

Posted on 03/13/2009 9:00:11 AM PDT by Bloody Sam Roberts

I'm seeing a huge difference in the way that FR is displaying.

On two PCs, the Browse page has changed dramatically. One PC's display format of the Browse Articles page changed while I was viewing it.

Has anyone else experienced this in the past 10 minutes?

Or am I on drugs?

Since I do not know if you are chemically dependancy challenged :) I cannot confirm that you are indeed on drugs. However I do not have the problem you just mentioned.

Can you post a screencap of what you are seeing?

I get a snafu once in a great while where the font size changes for the whole page (including the search or headlines views).

And it’ll become really small. Edit screen, all of them retain the view size, so it doesn’t seem to be a lingering “font size=” command.

My only solution is to close the browser (IE) and browse from a new window.

Did you accidentally hold down Ctrl and scroll your mouse wheel? That changes text size.

Last night, I noticed all of the text size changed on FR, becoming smaller (I’m using a Mac with Safari) I went in Safari to “view” and checked “zoom in” and the text went back to normal size for me.

So no, you’re not the only one.

Thanks for the replies.

I found the problem though I don't know how it happened on two machines simultaneously.

The "Articles" tab at the header got switched to "Activity"....on my desktop FR page and my laptop FR page. Simultaneously. While I was not even touching the mouse. Mouses? Meeses? Mice? Human Interface Input Device. Devices? Devii?

Eureka! I've discovered true AI! And it's a Freeper!

Well that’s good for you, I can’t get the General/Chat headlines to appear in the sidebar navigation (I don’t get the categories as a choice when I go to select which ones to configure).

First, put the pipe down. You are not on FR, this is the Huffington Post. Nah- Just kidding. I have seen no changes, however I don’t discount the idea that this is a communist plot. Maybe it has changed, and somehow toxic brain waves came through our computers and you were missed. Keep the rest of us posted-you may be our link to truth. For now I will bid you a good day, my comrade.—JM

There is nothing wrong with your television. Do not attempt to adjust the picture. We are now controlling the transmission. We control the horizontal, and the vertical. We can deluge you with a thousand channels or expand one single image to crystal clarity - and beyond. We can shape your vision to anything our imagination can conceive. For the next hour we will control all that you see and hear. You are about to experience the awe and mystery which reaches from the deepest inner mind to... The Outer Limits. Please stand by.

If you don't know if you are on drugs you probably are or,

you've entered The Obama Zone! Where nothing is like it was and nothing works anymore.

It's funny. I can recite that opening, verbatim...in my sleep if necessary. I've seen about every Outer Limits episode there is. Old ones and new.
