What worked for me was clearing the cache in my browser... And you should eat less cookies.

Re: SkippyForums' New Server Performance :: Poll and Comments

This may be obvious, but make sure the little box next to the log-in is checked. It says something like "remember me" or "keep me logged in". I had to log in each time after the upgrade, and then I realized that the box had become un-checked. I clicked it, logged in, and haven't had to re-login since.

Every time, Kiddo. BTW. If it's 0330, are you looking at it from Monday or Tuesday? Ah, to be young.

Ok, so clearing the cache worked. But you gotta know that nobody likes a smarty pants.

Until I go to bed, it's still "____ night". So right now, at 1:30am, it's Tuesday night, not Wednesday morning. At a certain point, though (5:00am-ish?) it turns into "morning".

And I may be able to stay up late, but I can't function as well on minimal sleep like I used to be able to.

Re: SkippyForums' New Server Performance :: Poll and Comments

You guys crack me up! Racing put me on a better sleep schedule than I had in my first round of college years ago.

Sy, the site is working nicely for me. I saw today some new photos posted at the top, pretty cool. I also like how the forum links are now on the left half of the browser window. Not sure who made those changes, but they are nice. Thank you Sy, Pat, Doug, Greg, others.

Working great for me now! The site is faster than I've ever experienced it. Thanks guys. I just knew if I could put Greg and Sy in touch good things would happen. This is such a cool bunch of folks to hang around.

Re: SkippyForums' New Server Performance :: Poll and Comments

Slowhands - I love your new avatar (well, I mean not love........but I like it a lot). Hey speaking of avatar, being this huge hit movie and all; I'm sure that the name has somehow been copywirtten or some other such lame legal proceeding - does this all mean I will have to pay a royality to someone everytime I use the word?. Can I pay in Canadian dollars (or as we call then in Canidiot land loonies)?

Re: SkippyForums' New Server Performance :: Poll and Comments

We'll have to change the name to Avatarandfeather and given this economy what better name for money than loony?! As long as you're spending 'em on racing, we'd prefer you spend 'em here with a company owned a friend from Canada.

Sy, like the Facebook interface, cool, but it swaps my SF avatar to my FB profile pic when I post to FB, can we kill that?

Yes, definitely.

First, go to the Facebook Connect link in the toolbar, or click here:

http://www.teamjuicyracing.com/forum...ile.php?do=fbb

Next, change the avatar sync setting on the page, all the way at the bottom. I think it's the last setting. That should do it.

I had it OFF, should it be on?

Paul, you should most appropriately pay a royalty to ME, since as everyone knows, avatar is an ancient Sanskrit word and I seem to be the only one here who knows how to correctly pronounce both "avatar" and "Sanskrit." Canidiot dollars are excellent and since they'll be legal tender down here in the lower 48 soon, maybe I can accumulate enough of them to buy a paddock pass for the Montreal GP.

I think it should be OFF. Mine is ON, and my avatar is syncing. Yours shouldn't sync if it says OFF.

No no no, this is about imagery, not vocabulary....

Doug-- as the creator and purveyor of some of the finest, most radical, and most creative imaginery in the motorsports world, if not the entire commercial graphics space, you are likely an avatar yourself. In fact, whenever I first see you, I half expect some graphic to pop out of the side of your head as you climb out of your Mini, which I also expect to morph. I bet that big camera we see you with is nothing more than a hologram. I am absolutely convinced you stuck your Mini on that tree stump on PURPOSE because you knew that was what the Universe wanted you to do, for the photo op.
