Did your Lonely Planet guide to Watertown prove useful?
Would Liza's "Confessions" album help you to confess? Or would it make you kill again?
How do you feel about Winona playing you in the movie?
It twere a Saturday morning when the snow lay on the ground
Paw said the time had come when I should go to town
So I kissed goodbye to momma, and let go of Papuer's hand
I saw a tear in mammy's eye but I did not understand
Cause I was just a Chechnyan, far from the motherland...
Not one of these replies is witty or interesting.
Epic fail of a thread.
Why is your mother a shoplifter?
Because people from that part of the world are obsessed with designer goods. It doesn't matter if they are Muslim, Jewish or Christian. They are thieves and thieving is considered ok because if you get away with it, then the person you stole from is considered to be a stupid pigeon who deserved to be robbed.
You then buy designer goods with whatever you stole (in my hospital, they would steal one credit card per handbag and leave the other credit cards in place, so it was difficult to notice a card had been taken until you got your bill. And the stolen cards were all used in midtown Manhattan, where we worked, never used in Queens or Brooklyn where these immigrant thieves lived. They're not stupid. They've been thieving all their lives).
"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!
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...
