For some reason, I can't get the search function to work. This may have been dealt with somewhere, but... I can't get the search function to work. Any suggestions? (I have cookies enabled, btw).

What are you searching for? You need more than two characters in the search.

Well, I was looking for "Schoeps", "Inconvenient Truth", "pmw ex1", things like that.

The search function appears to work fine. What browser (version) and operating system (version) are you using?

I think I'm the only person on the planet that doesn't know how to use the hyperlink feature. Can someone 'splain how I can type a word and have it link to my trailer on youtbe.

I searched the pages and found nothing, so I swallowed my pride (not so hard once you get use to it) and am asking for help

mark, in order to link to a site you have to do the following:

(quotation mark)visit my site(quotation mark):www.yourlink.com

note: the part between the quotation marks can have spaces and be any length you choose

Thanks, Christopher. Don't tell anyone I asked.

Mark, just click the blue question mark icon on the top right of the text box you're writing in, and it'll give you the whole range of linking and formatting options.

It's amazing what you can do on the internets.

This morning I completed a move of our database. Apologies for the inconvenience caused. This change should improve stability of the website.

Thanks, Peter. I had never even noticed any instability... You do great work behind the scenes!

Yes, thanks, I noticed. Now about the speed....

I'll be making a few more performance updates over the next few weeks before building the new features as part of our "Milestone 2" update... Stay tuned...

I've just made another wee upgrade. I will make a major upgrade next week.

I will post info about planned downtime soon.

Thanks for your patience!

OK, I apologize for the long period of downtime today. We had a server emergency this morning which required me to move the entire site to a new server. This took longer than I expected, but it has great benefits. I ended up doing next week's major upgrade today!

The server software has been updated to the latest versions and we are using some new and efficient technologies that will speed things along on The D-Word. Enjoy!

Thanks Peter, and though I haven't conducted a poll, this probably mirrors the appreciation of the full stable...! (By the way, it does feel faster).


Ben Kempas
Tue 13 May 2008Link

It does feel much, much faster now, doesn't it? (But maybe that's because those people who usually spend their whole day on The D-Word simply couldn't log on during the downtime.)

Go Speed Racer!

Already big improvement in velocity... thanks!

well done, peter. thanks for improvising on your feet.

Turns out it takes a bit longer for some people to get back on... This is because the new server for d-word.com needs to be propagated around the net first. No need to worry, and nothing has been lost! Good night...

I haven't been able to connect at all today..Still can't through my own access point.
I'm borrowing a neighbour's wifi in order to write this. Weird.


Christopher Wong

don't know if this relates to you, joe, but when i typed in "d-word.com", all i got was a page that said "It Works!" when i typed in "www.d-word.com", then i got in without any problem...
