You can tell FireFox to remember your login and it will auto-fill.

Ok- got it. If anyone's wondering, go to safari prefs > autofill, make sure "user names and passwords" is checked. Then, when you login, it will ask if you want your information stored.

If you want to buy me an iPhone I'll make an iPhone version!

I also liked checking D-word on my iPhone, back when I was living in an iPhone-data-compatible country.

Actually the big problem with D-word on iPhone is that it tends to hang and crash the iPhone browser. I've noticed that certain sites do this on the iPhone, and certain sites work fine and never crash. Of course, there have been some iPhone software updates since I last checked this.

still happens. And I often end up accidentally striking the "hide this topic from now" link instead of the "back to topics list" link. And I hate that everytime it crashes I have to type in my login again.

Facebook's got a pretty decent iPhone app. Different from the site, but pretty solid on the phone. Makes me jones for a D-word version too.

Well. Maybe we iPhone / D-word people should all pitch in for a phone for Peter.

We had discussed a mobile version before but were not sure there was a big demand. Maybe the iPhone is changing that.

Not that I can test it (yet...), but what actions make it crash on the iPhone?


James Longley

Nothing in particular. If you just go to the D-word site and do nothing it has a tendency to crash. Sometimes even before you get a chance to log in. Sometimes it crashes sooner, sometimes later, but it always crashes if you stay on the site for more than a few minutes.

I assume there have to be some coded operations taking place in the background of the site that cause this, because it can happen while the site is just sitting there, without any user action. Sometimes it becomes VERY slow on basic operations like text entry and then crashes.

Maybe borrow somebody's iPhone and take a look?


Peter Gerard

I'll do that later this week and see if I can figure out what's going on.

This is not a big deal, but my profile says I joined in 2005, when actually I joined back in 2001. Is there any way to fix that? (Just in case some day there is a special 10-year anniversary party or something)
thanks.

Maybe 2005 was when you first posted on the New Café? You are listed as 2005 there.

Why does it matter anyway? Any member can come to an anniversary party.

Thanks, Ben. That's probably it.

It doesn't matter – just had too much time on my hands that day, I guess ;-}

Doug, Ben

Which of the various topics would be best to post in about 'green' filmmaking? Or might it make sense to have a separate topic? [Perhaps it's there already, but I haven;t found it yet....]


Doug Block
Fri 9 Jan 2009Link

That's a really good question, Andrew. You might want to start out talking about it in the Bar and see if there's enough interest to open a seperate topic.

Doug, I posted my film treatment under works in progress. But now that I think about it. I don't really want it posted for everyone to see and take. Just at such an early stage I now realize it's a bit foolish to throw an idea like that out there. Can you remove the posting?


Doug Block

Done, Michael.

Thanks a bunch Doug, I hope I didn't offend the D word...I'm still new and not used to these postings. I apologize for the irrational decisions.


Doug Block

No offense and no worries. It's certainly not the first time this has happened.


James Longley
Sat 24 Jan 2009Link

It's true, Michael.
Why, I posted a copy of your film treatment just last week and had to ask Doug to take it down.

Haha I'm glad we're all aware of what we post whether it be our work or not.

Does the D-Word have one of those mini-apps that lets you size and crop the photo that gets used as your thumbnail? I thought I did this before, but went to do it on a new photo and could not find it.


James Longley
Sat 21 Feb 2009Link

I would also like to be able to do that. This thumbnail photo doesn't show my halo.

Dumb question about the Reelisor topic. I notice that Ben and Doug are posting in it, but posting privileges don't seem to be extended to the rest of us. Or maybe you have to be a Reelisor member? It's not clear. Not that I have anything really to contribute to the topic. Just seems like it would be more used by D-Worders if we could actually post there since it appears no Reelisor members (other than the organizer) seem to be posting there. Maybe it's just been a soft rollout. Anyway, just wondering...


Ben Kempas

Strange. It was set to allow postings from 19 January. I deleted that setting. Can you see a text box now?


Erica Ginsberg

Yes, thanks. Still have nothing much to say, but the issue is fixed.
