The Comment of the Week

We had some very clever comments this week (RayRay's "flour power" comes to mind), but the following made me laugh out loud because I had a vegetarian editor once. Nice woman, but I could tell that it was hell to read my copy. This was under the recommendations post. EL ...

Note to servers - Here is the wrong way to respond to an inquiry:

Me: I can't decide between the chicken and the lamb - would you recommend one over the other?

Server: I don't eat the flesh of dead animals.

This blogware blows. I can see new comments on individual posts but they don't show up here on Most Recent Posts. This is typical and really really annoying.

Apparently posting a complaining comment will goose the blogware into updating this particular post's data.

Hey Owl,
Its the other way 'round on my computer. I'm still using IE and the most recent comments section always has comments newer than when I go to a particular post. Clicking Refresh fixes it.

Not sure how that works in Opera. Haven't used that much.

I'm talking about the situation where I ALWAYS do a refresh over and over and it keeps giving me stale info

Do a hard refresh (SHIFT refresh). EL

What arr you talking some kind of crazy Apple-speak? Is there such a thing as a soft refresh?

CTRL-R is what I do.

Wow, EL is up late tonight.

Over here in IE land, refresh is F5, or that button with the curvy arrows that point up and down.

PCB: go back to the blog you just commented on for a response.

Is this more fun than writing for newspapers?

Infinitely. EL

Curvy arrows that point up and down? What?

Curvy arrows that point up and down? What?

The refresh button. Thank god for GUIs.

Looking for best take-out crabs?
