Rain today for my area. Heavy at times. Good thing I'm not going anywhere.

I believe in solving problems, not sharing them.


I think we need to start another thread. Either the fff.net database is beginning to gag on this one, or my phone is.

I don't have any problems with it.

You set to only show 50 posts per page?

I am off to work in the morning. Got a call from my boss a while ago. It will be a soggy one as there is still rain for tomorrow.

Do you have problems loading up the Garden, Brenda? Do you have it set for 50 posts per page?


..... Yanno what? I don't know if we can still even change that if somebody isn't set for 50 posts per page.

I did it years and years back (when the site was a different color) when I was having a problem loading pages at somebody else's suggestion, and now the only time I have trouble loading any pages is in the music threads where there are a lot of YouTube videos to load up at one time.

But I can't find any option to do that now.

It was probably a glitch is fff.net database. It was displaying the pages, as it normally does, then the content, then the pages, again, which it shouldn't do. And it did that three times in a row.

All of these kinds of websites operate on some sort of database. I'm not a db expert, but I've worked with many MANY databases, and I know that even the very expensive ones aren't infinitely extensible. You run into a limit somewhere - a limit on the number of bytes in a field, or a limit on the number of fields in a table, or a limit on buffer size, or the amount of RAM a db takes up... any number of program and physical limitations.

We've seen the db crap out before, where it lost the link between a username and its content (I think that happened with MIKE R bc the username still appears but the content is gone) or lost a username completely (I think that happened with KPO and BRENDA bc not only did the content disappear, so did their usernames).

Anyway, databases aren't infallible.

I prefer not to stress the architecture in case the whole thread craps out, so maybe we should end this thread and re-start someplace else?

No, I don't SIX. I didn't know you could do something like that about how many posts show.

The only time someone showed me how to do anything like change how a site worked was for the Official Board.

Tired and sore from work. Getting some fireworks. I can't see them just hear them so they are probably coming from down near the river.

Hey SIX. Forgot to tell you, I finished watching season 1 of "Miss Scarelet and the Duke." It was slow starting and by the last episode it had picked up. Have to see if I can find the second season.

One of the actors from Jamestown is in it playing the police inspector. He cleans up real good and I found myself thinking, "I'd like one of those."

Hehe. Are you talking about Mrs. Scarlett's "foil". I only saw the first episode, but it looks like things might get spicy.

I'm not sure if you can do it anymore. I can't seem to find any way to change the amount of posts that show on a page anywhere now. I'm assuming that it used to be in your profile settings at one point, but maybe it was dropped and you were stuck with whatever setting you had before the site changed colors?

I'm okay with that. Your 2nd thread is as good a place as any.

If Brenda's on board, why don't you put the final post in here with a link to the new Garden thread? I'll just post in the new one for now while you two sort it out.

Yes, I do believe I am. It does look like it could head that way depending on how long the series lasts.
