If my children ask me what life was like before computers were invented I will send them here. Before computers you were at the mercy of your own memory as nothing was saved anywhere unless you wrote it down, and that may have been misplaced or blown away by the wind. You also had to wait, maybe a week or a month, before you would see cousin John so you could ask him a question about something. You might forget what it was you wanted to ask cousin John by the time you ever saw him again, things might have changed anyway. Before computers things were slow, incredibly slow, but nobody knew they were slow because they were too busy drinking a real milkshake at the soda fountain and didn't want to rush thing anyway.

In conclusion, the forums are not all that bad, just have a real strawberry milkshake and enjoy,

Ken

I don't remember seeing any free wi-fi signs hanging in a Kresge malt area.

Java was coffee.

Jive was slang talk in the inner city.

Forum was at the local city hall or church.

Maybe forums may be used less in the future. Like e-mail is starting to be replaced with facebook, twitter, texting to name a few.

They would be fine if they worked like DinoForum 0.1 beta.  The T-Rex dev team only had the resources and brain capacity to implement the basics, which is all we really need here!

That and "point systems".

Yup, your right.

I put my mouse over my name it shows my name. Fine

Put the mouse over PJ's and it shows my name. Then go back to my name and it shows PJ.

Even showed my name when I went over yours.

Tried what you (both) said and regardless of how I did it you names first or mine, Mine showed  my name and each of yours show the correct one. If you are using Windows machine might be a window/Adobe/Jive bug.

Not sure PJ, honestly I've seen it before but never reported it (who has the time for ALL these bugs?), and I also have a very hard time reproducing it reliably.

So do I expect Jive "Snake Oil" Software to be able to fix it?  (ahahaha...)

It's probably some Ajax and JavaScript related crap.  Maybe something to do with timing or Ajax calls that haven't come back yet, just a guess.  Every browser has subtle variations in their JS engines and I'm on Chrome which I'm sure you're not using.  Not really the easiest thing to troubleshoot and fix, but that's Jive's problem since they decided to use hack technology to build their Jiveware crap, no wonder it works so well.

Good idea for a disclaimer PJ, we should all put one up like that.
