Have you met anyone in real life who looked like a celebrity?
I swear while coming home I bumped into Joseph Gordon-levitt's lookalike.
So you bumped into an ugly guy with squinty eyes?
I have a friend who looks somewhat like Chris Pine, and I find as I watch TV and movies that there are other actors who remind me of him ("Mike" on SUITS).
People always tell me I look like a certain female celebrity. I don't want to say who it is because DLers have mocked this celeb for being ugly. But at least 30 different people have told me that I look like her.
I bumped into a Sarah Jessica Parker lookalike at the Kentucky Derby. Several of them, in fact.
My BF looks like him. Or used to. Been a few years.
I will have to nominate myself
People tell me all the time that I look like a young Paul Newman.
There was a guy who used to work at my local CVS who was a dead ringer for Chris Evans, only shorter. I did a double take the first time I saw him. He hasn't been there for a while, so I guess he's moved on to another job.
My best friend's sister is married to a Frenchman who looks a lot like a young Ralph Fiennes.
R6, does your bf wear a similar WIG?
The techs at my vet's office. One looks like Olive Oil if she were real. The other is a cross between SJP and Courtney Love. She could knock you out with one swipe of her ginormous chin. For some odd reason, she fancies herself a knock out.
No, R15, but he has a bald spot.
I have a friend who looks like Mandy Moore.
I knew an aspiring actress who looked just like Leslie Caron. She looked so much like Caron that whenever she mentioned the resemblance, the conversation would devolve into a long discussion over whether Caron was beautiful, or merely cute.
My friend was cute.
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
The old site will remain around on http://legacy.datalounge.com while things settle down but will go away fairly soon as we consolidate everything to the one "official" site.
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
