    Default Getting booted.

    Is it just me or is this site acting up like it normally does?

    Basenotes has so much money but they refuse to fix it. SMH.

    For those who don't know, the server for Basenotes exists on an interdimensional rift, shifting from galaxy to galaxy.

    It really infuriates me when I find a really fascinating thread, type in a well thought out 10 line reply only to have it crap out. I could throw the Laptop. I try to frantically type in a few word reply mostly and hit enter just so as not to lose it.

    I'm certainly getting 'whiffs' of Basenotes here when a little more linearity and tenacity is called for.

    It's not too bad right now.

    The last time I've typed this it swallowed up the post though, so I might be wrong lol.

    The connectivity problem is so chronic I'm almost used to it. It's only when I visit other sites that I realize how bad Basenotes is. It is the only site I have any real problem with.

    Wish some of my frags had the longevity of the server problems here.

    I agree, I use another forum about cars which works much better.

    +10000000000 DATABASE ERRORS. Nothing unusual. I would be suspect if I came on one day and it worked. Thats when we worry.

    That might indicate a rip in the fabric of the space-time continuum. Grabbing as many bottles of Patou Pour Homme as I can hold.

    If you use Firefox there are add ons that save the info you enter into fields so you don't lose it all. I think the one I use is Lazarus, and if any webpage I'm on goes down at least I know I will be able to recover the text I have entered.

    Very helpful Tappio. Thanks. I've been trying to respond to a PM and everytime I try and send it out I get the database error.

    What's up with the pure protein banners? I have to reload the page 3 times before any link works.
    Is the juice worth the squeeze?

    Happens to me on my iPad - I think the new advertisements have a transparent div that drops down and covers the top nav bars. Great idea. *sigh* So, now, even when the page does load, there are still problems with its usability.

    Cumbersome as it may seem typing your post in a parallel running program such an email or Microsoft Word, then copying it and pasting and posting to the Basenotes Thread of your choice works.

    "No"

    "No"
    "Are you a man?"
    "No"

    BN plus members can turn off the ads!!!!!!
    If you subscribe, you can escape being advertised to

    Anyone else can use Adblock
    And agree, Firefox.

    The rest is being worked on, as I understand it, a lot of re-programming going on, but a lot of data to preserve, maybe?
