Suggestions & Concerns / New titles
« on: July 26, 2015, 09:47:56 AM »
On the old site, former moderators are given the title of "The leader ones" to distinguish them from the other members.  I would like to submit a sugestion to do something similar here.  Perhaps "Flat Earth Advisor" or something similar for PP(sexaholic), Gayer, and Roundy?  Thoughts?

Suggestions & Concerns / IRC
« on: April 21, 2015, 02:23:44 PM »
I think there should be a separate chat room for TFES and for general chatting.  People come to IRC to chat with flat Earthers, because that is what the Home Page invites them to do, only to be chased off by people proclaiming that, "we don't discuss the shape of the Earth here."  Does this not seem counter productive to anyone else?  Should not the people who just want to bull shit be in a different room from the noobs who come to IRC to ask FE questions live?  Is it just me? 

Philosophy, Religion & Society / Anti Israel is not Anti Semitism

It is possible to be against Israel but not hate Jews.  The two things are not mutually inclusive, even if Yaakov tries to cry, "anti-Semite" every time someone mentions something against the Zionist occupiers.

Suggestions & Concerns / CN page numbers
« on: January 03, 2014, 11:25:57 AM »
On the other boards, the page numbers are blue except for the one that I am currently on, which makes it easy to see if there are more pages to view or if I am at the end.  In CN, all the page numbers are the same color and I have to hover my mouse pointer over the pages to see which one I can not click on to know which page number I am on.

It would be nice, for me at least, if the page numbers at the bottom of the pages would have different colors for the ones that you can click on and the one you are currently on.  Below is an example.

Technology & Information / Chromecast
« on: December 18, 2013, 05:59:55 PM »
I just wanted to give a short review on Google's Chromecast.  I bought one this morning and have been playing with it for a few hours.  So far, no real complaints.

For those of you who do not know what it is, it is a device that you plug into your HDMI port on your TV.  It allows you to stream video from your phone, tablet or PC straight to your TV.  The way I have it set up, I basically use my phone as a remote control for Netflix, Hulu Plus (which is not working yet), you tube, and other video streaming sources. 

The installation went very smoothly and I think that anyone can do it.  I plugged everything in, downloaded the Chromecast app, and I was ready to start.  I did have to update Netflix, Pandora, Hulu Plus, and youtube on my phone.  I also added Songza.  Within minutes, I was able to use each of these to put video and music on my entertainment system (with the exception of Hulu Plus). 

After installing the Chromecast, I had to do an update which took around 30 minutes.  I have DSL, so it did not surprise me that it took around 30 minutes.  I did not experience delays like this after the update.

For Netflix, after the update, I was able to hit two on screen buttons to get it to play on the TV.  I just had to click on the Chromecast button and select the device. 

Pandora worked fine as well.  I could stream and control not only the channel, but the volume and skip and fast forward controls as well on my phone.

Hulu Plus did not work for me.  It said that my phone's OS was not compatible.  I'll keep working on it.

Youtube worked great.  I had no issues.  The video was much better than I thought it would be.

As of now, the only problems I have really had have been with Chromium apps and Hulu.  Hulu will not work, and the Chromium apps that I have downloaded in order for me to watch video on my computer while using my phone as a remote is not really working.  For some reason, I can see my computer on the Chromecase but cannot stream to it.  I can see anything that is on my computer on my TV, but video does not make the transit. 

I have downloaded other things that will allow me to show stuff on the TV that is on my phone, but it does not work right now. 

I also installed the Chromecase app on my Ubuntu computer, so I can use my phone to control video on my bedroom computer, but it does not work.

In short, it is great a I am having fun with it.  Getting things from my phone to the computer monitor seems like a little bit of a pain,  but going to the HDMI port is very smooth.

I give it 7 out of 10.

Suggestions & Concerns / Search field on main page

Could we have the search box on the main page fixed?  It is half covered (at least on my computer) with the menu bar.

Suggestions & Concerns / The Lounge
« on: December 03, 2013, 11:51:02 PM »
On the .org site, the Lounge section was hidden from Guests.  This was done so we could talk a little more openly amongst ourselves without having to worry about hundreds of strangers reading our personal information or looking at our pictures. 

Currently, Guests can not see the lower fora.  I propose that the Lounge section be setup like this as well.
