  1. So there were still problems. You may have noticed. I've been back-and-forth with the technical support people over the last five days, and it appears to be a caching issue with the system. I've disabled most caching now. The only content currently being cached is thread views for guests, which are now only refreshed once an hour. Hopefully the HAIF server can handle running without cache. It was pretty close to 80% capacity before. I'll keep an eye on things. As always please write to me to let me know if things are borked.
  2. For those of you following this topic, I have updated the software. Hopefully it helps. Don't forget to clear your browser cache! I thought it was a stupid notion, but it made a difference for me. I've created a new thread to discuss any further problems:
  3. The Black Labrador used to be the traditional place for the mods to meet. But that's gone. So very sad.
  4. Hi All, I've updated the software that runs HAIF. I know there were a lot of problems after the last one went in, so hopefully this will improve things. An important note: Be sure to clear your browser's cache. After this upgrade, I was still having problems until I cleared my browser cache and now things seem better. Hopefully everything is magically delicious now. Only time will tell. To clear your cache if you're using Safari, press Command-Option-E. Safari on iOS (iPhone and iPad) is more of a pain in the butt. You have to use Settings → Safari → Advanced → Website Dat
  5. So, the bad news is that the problem with the rich text editor not loading continues to be a problem. The good news is that it's happening to lots of other fora, and not just HAIF. So hopefully that means the makers of the software will get on it. I'll keep you updated.
  6. I've upgraded the forum software. Hopefully this irons out some of the problems. If not, let me know by e-mail.
  7. To start off this Hire a HAIFer section, I thought I'd put my information in. Just so people can see where my mind is with this thing. Hire a HAIFer isn't supposed to be a place to post full resumes. Just tell people about yourself, and if they like what they see, they can contact you for a full resume by PM. Here's me: Web Developer with Healthcare and Communications Experience I've been building commercial web sites since 1997, much of that time overlapping the 20 years I worked as a broadcast journalist. For the last five years I've been
  8. Thanks for posting these problems. I'll look into them. There is a software update available for the forum software. It has a list of about 100 bugs that have been squashed recently. Hopefully some of them will fix the problems you list. I'm backing up the forum right now. It takes a little while, so I will try to perform the upgrade on Tuesday. If you notice anything amiss with HAIF, the fastest way to get it rectified is to contact me directly at editor@houstonarchitecture.com. One thing to note: I had some of the same problems you
  9. With the world all screwed up, and many people unemployed, how does everyone feel about me starting a Hire a HAIFer section? The idea is that people will start a thread about themselves. Not a full resume, because that can give away too much personal information. But a list of their skills and interests. Then if anyone else on HAIF is hiring, or works for a company that is hiring, they can PM the thread-starter and maybe find a good fit. Things are rough these days. My department at work has gone from 50 people to less than ten over the last six months. So I hope t
  10. I think the old BBCodes were converted to the new message format. At least when I did the software upgrade, it spent about 30 minutes churning through all of the old messages. Oh wow, 1640px! You've got way better kit than I do. I'm still rocking a 2011 MacBook Air with a 1366x768 screen.
  11. A couple of notes: BBCode is no longer supported. I guess HAIF has had a full text editor for a couple of years now, so it's not really needed. You can embed TikTok videos now.
  12. Hi all, I've updated the HAIF software. If you notice anything not working the way it should, let me know: editor@houstonarchitecture.com.
  13. Debates used to serve two purposes: Pumping up your followers, and swaying the undecided. As we seem to have fewer and fewer undecided people these days of weapons-grade tribalism, it's mostly about energizing one's base. Still, it's useful to see how a candidate acts on his feet. When I see a politician dodge a question, I have less esteem for that person. I don't know that I've ever fully switched sides from watching a debate, but I have seen candidates in a different light.
  14. Sorry it's taken me so long to chime in on this. I'm going to install a software update today that will hopefully fix this problem.
  15. Yeah, the ads can be problematic. Fortunately, most of the more annoying ones have gone. I'm not sure what I can do about this at this time, though. The ads are selected automatically by a computer based on what it thinks you want to see. We've already filtered out the worst categories, but there isn't a way to flag individual ads or ad types. If it was up to me, we'd only show static image ads like in the old days. Sorry I can't be more helpful with this. If anyone has any suggestions, let me know.
