further adventures in Jed York being unsuited for his position
I'd say for me it would be the diary posts. it's like a mini-main page.
what say you?
So Brian's front page post on the B-School kid trying to "actualize" concepting song-like objects got a whole lots of posts calling it a threat on ruining careers. I'll explain the damn joke. There was a movie in 2009 called "Taken". Liam Neeson delivers a speech then [SPOILER ALERT] kills bad guys who kidnapped his daughter (see, she was Taken). Brian's post was an OBVIOUS parody of this speech. My question is... how did you miss this?
Taken was such a big hit they made a sequel. Then a THIRD!
Family guy parodied it!
it was in a superbowl commercial two weeks ago! Lighten up folks.
to this thread of nerdy Michigan football fans."
Saw an interesting exchange in the THE HARBAUGHING thread I started earlier and though i would open it up into its own thread for discussion.
Veteran members, lurkers-now-posters. Who are your favorite posters of the past? These can be guys that got banned, Bolivia'd or just stopped posting on the site and moved on with life unannounced.
If you have any old timey or famous threads from the past, post those also. I'm in the mood for a laugh and want to be entertained.
My favorite that amused me quite often was Section 1. Not sure what happened to him. Why is he my favorite?
It's easy. The 20 page Rich Rod wars he started in threads. Also his blatant stepping over the line into the No Politics zone that got others riled up.
So, in a thread yesterday about MGoBlog F5 condition, I brought up how I use MGoFeed to get SMS alerts every time an MGoPost or thread is added to MGoBlog.
There were some people in that thread that had no idea they could receive MGoBlog updates. So for those curious or wanting to get the big news and would prefer an instant text message alert when a thread is posted, here it-
STEP 1- (Ignore this if you already have a twitter account)
Make a Twitter account. No, you don't have to ever send a tweet. Ever. This is just a "decoy" to get the SMS alerts
Once you make your account, you will navigate towards the upper right hand corner of the web page where you will see your profile picture (an egg for those who just made a Twitter account).
When you click on your photo, a menu will pop up underneath it. see example:
You will then click "Settings".
Once you click settings you will see a menu that says "Account" with a sidebar on the left side of your screen that contains various submenus. see example:
You will then click "Mobile" and begin your registration to enable SMS alerts. These alerts aren't any premium type deal and standard rates apply.
Once you go through the registration process with your cell phone which includes Twitter sending you a confirmation code, you will then go and search "MGoFeed" on twitter OR you can click here to get to the MGoFeed's twitter page.
This is MGoFeed's account photo FWIW
Once you are on MGoFeed's twitter page, follow MGoFeed. Then, right next to the "follow" button, will be a gear. see example-
When you click on the gear, a pop-up menu will be revealed under the gear. There will be an option on there to "turn on mobile notifications".
There it is. Enjoy! MGoFeed SMS alerts include a text message sent directly to your phone as soon as the MGoFeed tweets. These alerts will include all posts to main page, all MGoBoard posts and all posts in the mgo.liciou.us
I've noticed that I can't login from Chrome on the front page. If I drill down to a post the login works. Also, going back to the front page automatically logs me off. Started yesterday and I only use Chrome.
Anyone else have this issue? Mods delete this or whatever if necessary.
EDIT: Per LSA2000 and others the servers are 'flushing' the system. Which makes sense since most of us were full of crap yesterday. I do notice an increase in speed on the site which I guess is similar to a nice 'cleanse'...
