“Every complaint already contains revenge.”
Morning CPols, Thought I would tell you the process I went through to get here. Logged in; went directly to error page and pressed “OK”. This took me to Jan 16th posts and I then went to top and selected “Recent Diaries” and here I am in the Weekend Open Thread. Now let’s see if this gets posted!
The most important feature check – do we still get the Saturday morning video?
Apparently not 🙁
Ok, today’s video at Р•Р»РµРЅР° Р“Р°Р»РёС†С‹РЅР° – РђРЅРіРµР» РІ РјРѕРµР№ РїРѕСЃС‚РµР»Рё
Stand by, we’ll investigate. You obviously don’t want to stop your Saturday morning videos.
We just added that to your comment successfully–still looking into this. Question, did you use the “old” embed code for Youtube, or the newer iframe-based code?
The new. Here is is with the old
Okay, we’re working on this. We do intend for users to be able to post videos, so we’ll get this fixed. In the meantime, notice how we made sure this week’s Russian music video was posted.
Yes – you guys rock!
Can you try again? We just made some changes.
To everyone else, sorry, this kind of guinea pigging will only be necessary for a short while longer. Thanks for your patience while we work out the bugs.
Same artist, different song, new code:
And old code (new code not showing):
Did it not work? We thought we enabled video embeds.
I tried both old and new (see above).
ps – What will happen to Pols if people can’t get their Saturday morning video? That’s half the traffice and the sole reason Voyager, Duke, & Dio come here 🙂
My wake up music:
Hey that worked!!!
Great! It looks like you used the new Youtube embed code, though both should work now.
Thanks for your patience, everyone.
Mobile platform (I.e. IPhone) really sucks. Everything gets swished and extruded. Third or fourth comment in a string is only one word wide.
On the other hand, no Russians videos us a monster fucking improvement. Thanks!!!
I’d probably be willing to trade the much appreciated loss if Russian videos for a few, well placed “Home” buttons. How ’bout it, Alva?
I have a complaint. (Not about the new system, although I can’t figure much out. Figure that’s me, not you guys.)
WaPo and TPM are announcing to the world (and it’s a crazy world out there) that Sidwell Friends security guards don’t carry guns.
And the NRA is asking teh crazies to attack Obama’s children.
Sometimes, you gotta wonder about this country.
Trying out my first post. Nothing political this time, rather a thought-provoking book that flips the notion of the Turing Test on its head. How can you tell if the person you are conversing with via computer really is human, and not just a program?
Obviously, Harry, I am human…human…human…human…
Sorry for the bad link. Still fumbling with iPad cut and paste:
I liked being able to go to my “comments” and see who had responded to me. Sometimes someone will respond a day or two later and it was easy to find those responses quickly without wading through all the threads. Can’t find anything quite like that with this new set-up. Am I just not looking in the right place?
Haven’t seen it – I agree, we need it.
There is likely a way to do this via a plugin, and we’ll work on finding it.
Drove by the Capitol today. Large number of demonstrators who seems to think the constitution starts and ends with the 2nd amendment there.

Lance Armstrong Admits To Using Performance-Enhancing Drugs To Show Remorse
Clearly html tags are not so user friendly. A blockquote button would be nice
“To make the kind of heartfelt apology I am making now without the help of drugs would be impossible, and so when it came to convincing millions of people that I am a decent human being who is capable of actual regret, I needed an edge”
Really good update – Carmen Ortiz Strikes Out
I hope when this is discussed in hearings in Congress that The rest of the Colorado delegation will follow the lead of Representative Polis.
Pols – Still having to go around the block to get here. Your header/art work comes up with the message “Not Found” and directs me to search; I click OK and get the diaries for Jan. 16, 2013. I click on “Recent Diaries” and here I am.
If you responded to my comment yesterday, it does not show up as did the dialogue with David on his Russian videos. (I know, I know his videos are more important than my comments.)
If I am doing something wrong, let me know.
We haven’t been able to replicate this issue, but it sounds like you may be using a bookmarked link to get here that includes a Soapblox-specific reference (frontpage.do, login.do, etc.) no longer in use with WordPress. Try updating that bookmark to link directly to http://coloradopols.com (no other stuff) and see if that works for you.
Yup, that works too. Thanks
That was it – duh! Thanks Pols. Now you know why I hate to break in a new version or add a new computer program to my system. 🙂
Happens to a lot to me too. Discovered that all you need to do is click on “ColoradoPols.com” at the top of the page and it gets you to the home page with all the latest diaries.
So how come you have a recent comment link to a story from Sept. of last year?….I still can’t tell which are new comments… I have to log in every time I visit…you need a “back to top of page” button…
Dennis Webb of that daily paper in Grand Junction has written an excellent story about oil and gas history and prospects. I highly recommend you read it, I’m not sure if I am allowed to link there. ?
I will risk one quote from David Ludlam, COGA Director for this side of the hill.
вЂњI think the history of the Piceance is repeating itself in a way,вЂќ was his comment. Do check it out.
For those in charge of passing effective gun safety legislation, I have an idea that might get you a lot of attention & support from voters. During the week it is going up for a vote, get a ½ minute commercial each night on each of the main news shows And on it, run the people killed by guns in Colorado the previous day, plus the total for all deaths in the country the previous day. Give the specifics on the 1 or 2 that are the most poignant.
Apparently fractions are not allowed – ½ was supposed to render as 1/2.
Can we lengthen the amount of time we remain logged in?
I seem to get logged out every few hours. 🙁
[ Test: do HTML entities work? &emdash; ½ ]
Lack of HTML entity support could be annoying; any way to turn that on?
Look at that. Comment spellchecker? Comment editing? Now we’re talking!
I assume the countdown means we can only edit comments for an hour after posting? I like that if so…
