Am I the only one seeing very strange FR behavior?

Posted on 06/17/2010 7:30:33 AM PDT by Minn

On the home forum page I see the last comment of each thread, rather than opening of the article. Haven't seen a mention of this anywhere.

See those tabs above the comments, near the top of the page?

Make sure you’ve selected “Articles”, not “Activity” or “Comments”.

I have observed some strange behavior on FR, on and off for years.

It’s nothing new.

I think it’s the malaise of olde finally setting in—I see a general lack of confidence that things will be looking up despite some tough talk from a few; it reminds me of the old pre-60s saying, “don’t let ‘em sh!t on ya, open yer mouth!”

Semper BS!

;)

Is there something wrong with windows 8?

I’m using windows 98... that’s ninety better than windows 8, right?

Right. Myself, I fold my 5 1/4 inch floppies so I can reuse them in my 3 1/2 inch drives.

I suspect it’s the work of Freeper arch-enemy Hugh Manatee.

Thanks. That must have been it. I've been around here for a century or so, but never notice that tab thingy. Must have accidentally clicked it. It must be a profile based thing, since it affected all my machines and Blackberry.

LOL! Don’t feel like the lone ranger. I have been here over five years and I just learned about it myself about a month ago.

We were cleaning out some offices where I work and came across some 5 1/4" floppies. One of the ladies looked at them and said "WHAT are these?" I thought she meant what kind of records are they, but no, it was the first time she'd ever seen a 5 1/4" disk.

There are some younger folks now who haven't seen a 3 1/2" floppy. Anyone else feeling old?

I'd say that he is FR's resident expert on both strange behavior and Hitting It.

Near the top of the page are three tabs called Articles, Activity and Comments. I usually leave mine set to Comments so I see the latest comments for each thread. It sounds to me like you had it set on Articles and may have accidently clicked on Comments. Try clicking on Articles and see if it doesn’t fix it.

See post #6 for the correct answer. That has happened to me and drove me nuts until I discovered the problem as described in post #6.

Yeah no doubt. For proof use keywords "Unnngh.." "Undead Thread" and any post by Constitution Day and/or Lazamataz

I ALWAYS keep it on Comments, FR is more fun that way. No I don’t see any strange behavior.

"HEY! Grrr!"

Prosecution enters into evidence:

From your profile:

"It's THANKSGIVING! What am I thankful for? I’m thankful this is the first year I didn’t have to hide the bodies. I’m thankful for the constant company of the radioactive robot zombies that follow me everywhere. I’m thankful I finally quit huffing glue. I’m thankful no one saw that incident in the Yankees dugout, and I deny everything. I’m thankful every woman who sees me runs away, screaming. I’m thankful most of the restraining orders are lifted."
the Prosecution rests! ;-)

And for me the Day you and Constitution Day and Pissant and all the other wackos leave FR I'm gone! Yes, I live vicariously through the posts you guys make and if you quit then the voices in my head will win!

I've been coaching myself to consider, when a situation seems really strange, to consider the possibility that I'm dreaming. I actually did it the other night. I looked around, noticed that the scene I was viewing in my dream looked colorful and detailed, and even though the situation was bizarre and prompted me to consider the possibility, I and concluded that I wasn't dreaming.

Ah...but here is where it gets complicated, you might’ve been dreaming while you were concluding that you weren't dreaming.
On the other hand the whole question may be less important than what my cat had for breakfast and I don't even own a cat.

No, yeah, I totally got it and was agreeing with it. A certain level of ambient nuttiness is one of FR’s best features.

Thanks. Oh, it certainly is.

We have a bunch of eccentric "characters" on this site! It wouldn't be the same without that.
