Oh good! We have a chatbox now! Too bad it's temporarily like a ghost town around here.

I think everyone's browser favourite points to the http://macintoshgarden.org/ domain, which is up for grabs.

There's still a lot of in-site links that point to http://macintoshgarden.org/, but we can work through them

I was getting worried, this site's never been down for me before.

Thanks Mike Garden for starting the "pretty" download button revolution Tongue

by Euryale - 2010, October 3 - 5:58pm

I seriously thought about buying the site when it was down.,

Vitoarc's picture
by Vitoarc - 2010, October 3 - 6:54pm

I may be mistaken, but I think domain names are held for a little while as a courtesy prior to making them available for purchase. So even though a domain name has expired, it can't be purchased for several weeks/months. But I'm not sure about this.

Balrog's picture
by Balrog - 2010, October 3 - 7:10pm

That's generally true, but obviously depends on the DNS registrar.

And the laws in the country involved. Example cocacola in France.

by Temporary Joe - 2010, October 8 - 12:43am

I love Boxer/DOSBox, but it's sad because it's easier to run old DOS games than it is to run old Mac games on a new Mac.

Le Chat on the main page seemed like it was disabled. But now the chat box it back.

Nobody else leave comments in the chatbox. I enjoy talking to myself. Wink

Ah, well. New version of SS *almost* boots from a physical floppy. Almost… :/

Just a shout to ask if some of you could try out the Total Distortion download, its my first attempt at plonking a disk image up, hope it works

WELCOME all new members! Enjoy the site, and may you feel encouraged to leave comments and ask questions.

by Temporary Joe - 2010, October 31 - 6:05pm

You should add Old Mac Archive to the list, though.

Observations:

Chatbox: Not used much
Comments on Home Page: Hardly used at all
IRC: Very few people ever log on to talk, ask questions
Comments on upload pages: Pretty good
Forum discussions: Pretty good

My observation : maybe the chat box is hardly used because not that visible ?

Vitoarc's picture
by Vitoarc - 2010, November 4 - 2:23pm

Good observation mathieudel. I didn't know it was there for the longest time, because I never went to the "main" page. Perhaps the Chat would be better integrated into the Forum section, or at least a link to the Chat should appear in the Forum.

by Euryale - 2010, November 4 - 10:19pm

I think the chatbox would be better if it looked like a chatbox like this:
http://www.cbox.ws/

get it for free, I put one in my website sometime ago, it works,
but I had to take it down due to lascivous comments I had.

by SwedeBear - 2010, November 4 - 10:36pm

"lascivous"… I would be very concerned if some1 wrote that in a chatbox of mine. Wink

Vitoarc's picture
by Vitoarc - 2010, November 4 - 10:45pm

The interface sure looks a lot nicer, Euryale, I'm just wondering if what we have, we have because it works with CAPTCHA.

by Euryale - 2010, November 5 - 2:01am

About the ¨lascivous¨ maybe that´s not the word (excuse my english)
but once in a while I had some vulgar and sexist comments not appropiate for my WebSite.
since I ´m always at the Yahoo Answers website, some people just like to upset me,
that´s why I took it down..not a big deal,

@Vitoarc
You´re right, I forgot about the captchas and the Spammers...

As I've read the 'las' word, your other words come to my mind in its connection.
Don't publish picts.

Besides this chats lack of "visibility"; a [Last Post] link at the top of the page (like in the Forum posts) would also be a plus.

Hello? Testing testing, 1, 2, 3...

by SwedeBear - 2010, November 5 - 7:35am

@Euryale: not trying to make fun of such tiresome and juvenile comments happen on your board/chatbox. Just fascinated by the English language, which isn´t my 'native tounge' either.
