Suddenly I can post using IE. Fixed?
Meta: Will I ever be able to post at work again?
No you can't...I've got the site up right now with both I.E. and Safari and only Safari gives me the comment box. I.E. still just gives the subject line. And my office computer, like Profit, doesn't have Safari.
It's a Festivus miracle!
I'm there with you, stuck in limbo at work. Plus the fact that the Mgopoints aren't tabulating anymore is also high on the suck meter.
It's like watching 7 year olds play T-Ball where every game ends in a tie regardless of the actual score of the game. Brilliance isn't being rewarded and stupidity isn't being punished.
never did figure out the point system anyways ! I will miss the posbangs though !
Have you tried Google Chrome? Seems to be a common fix.
How about the points tabulation? Can Google Chrome fix that too?
If so that program ROCKS.
"START MAKING THIS STUFF YOU'RE GIVING ME FOR FREE BETTER, I AM ANGAR."
Settle down about the points, your a grown man whinning like a 7 year old tee ball player. Points serve no purpose, mostly to weed out the trolls.
Is that, like, a cross between whining and winning? Maybe whining about winning?
That said, I agree on the points. Their intended purpose is often forgotten.
META: Posted with IE (for the first time since the Great Malware Disaster).
Some companies may not want their employees to download new web browsers, though. They take up a fair amount of space.
It's not the space, it's usually that their legacy software written in 1995 only supports ie6. And the people upstairs don't care about what web browser the grunts are using, since they're supposed to be working.
To be fair, they are still using IE, so that's more than likely.
I only access this site on Chrome - works and it is simple
Corporate firewalls are a b-tch.
That's great, except my employer pretty much has the permissions on lockdown -- we can't install anything but a few select programs on our own. Chrome and Firefox are not on that list (I've tried).
i have the same problem at school, i downloaded firefox onto a flashdrive and run that while at school.
People can use ff mobile on the flash drive and it doesn't put anything on that hard drive. No b browsing history or anything.
Just need a decent flash drive.
Same boat, although my withdrawal symptoms are starting to dissipate.
Google chrome works. Thanks ! Safari gave me the same problem on my Mac, but it did work initially.I got IE to work only once by changing the input format but it quickly f'd up again ( and again,etc )
If you have Firefox at work you'll be able to post.
My amazing deduction skills tell me that you do not have Firefox since you have not been posting from work.
should read "if you're not an M fan you are shit". It makes more sense. They would not even put you in remedial grammar for that, they'd send you directly to State in my era.Young whippersnappers.
I realize you know it is a colloquialism and are joking, but this particular phrase makes grammatical sense. Corrected, it does not mean "you are shit" -- it means "you are not anything" or, better, "you are nothing" (nothing = no thing or "not something"). "Ain't" corrects to "are not." "Shit" corrects to "anything" or, better, "something."
My wife is an English teacher too.
/ hangs head in grammatical shame
You can probably still post. At least, I can with IE8 (though I'm using Firefox at the moment.) It's just, I have to wait til I've posted to see what I've written.
we're using IE8 at work and I'm the boss so I don't have any limitations on my computer, still no dice on posting through IE
A lot of companies lock down their machines so that employees are not able to install software. This way their images stay standardized and risk of malware spreading is reduced.
However, there are ways around this, such as Portable Firefox. Simply download the portable executable to your hard drive (if allowed) or a flash drive and launch the file.
Funny, though, that IE is the gaping hole in their secure environment.
True enough, however IE is the corporate standard, for better or for worse.
Buy an ipod touch. Use the app. Problem solved.
I am taking donations. Thanks.
which ap ? Does Safari work for you ? Which OS version ?
The iphone app.
From the sounds of it, a droid version is making progress...
Everybody's missing the point here. Do you really want to work for the kind of company that doesn't allow you to post on Mgoblog?
Didn't think so.
Time to find another job!
With all your apparent wherewithall, why not just get a laptop with a cell connection and do whatever you want? I am the owner of my company and can pretty much do what I please but still don't get all these "limitations" being complained about.
I don't use IE for anything, let alone this.
everybody I can post agin with Google Chrome. Now if I can just talk the Security officer into letting me download Google Chrome at work and I'll be set.
At work we can only visit .gov sites! I use my I-phone to read and occasionally post from work. Does mgoblog have a smart app for the droid?
but there isn't an app for it yet. I have mgoblog as one of my favorites on my web browser. I believe that everything on a Droid is Google based (thus the browser is likely similar to chrome), and it works great.
about posts that contain your instead of you're.
Chrome on a stick, if the powers-that-be will let you run an app from a flash drive.
Genius man, you saved me.
and what do you know I can post again! Thanks!
subject line for the win!!!
It only works 1 out of 4. So I'm only batting .250. I guess I'll just lerk untill Brian gets the site back to 100%.
just saved my life! So many things I wanted to discuss but couldn't. This is awesome, thank you!
Hope I'm not too late to the party.
Alternatively Brian (or his brother) could enable a meta-tag that will automagically force browsers that have Chrome Frame installed to use that rendering engine over IE's (which is a good thing).
I use Firefox Portable at work - it doesn't require any admin rights to install and works like a charm. You can even get a beta of FF4 if you want.
