    Yahoo Problem?!?...

    Opened up MB this am and was looking for the rest of yesterday's messages, but stopped with Hajohn's 4/27/05 at 7:39 am. Everything prior is listed at 12/31/69 7:00pm. Checked BMY MB and its the same. Is anyone else having this problem?

    • Web;

      Does your putter also account for the "pluck your magic twanger froggie" factor when the beer cart goes by? If so, one smart putter!

    • Classic.

      With regard to the wedges...that would mean that you would have to carry fewer clubs. Afterall, who would really want a whole bag of wedges. Fancy that. The truly short game.

      My great-uncle had webbed feet. I never saw them. Toes connected.

      Uh-huh

    • If you have laid up and made your first putt, and it is relatively close to the hole, you may declare a "Penis Putt"...

      This is basically a "Gimme" if your Johnson is longer than the distance between the ball and the edge of the cup...

      It's a gamble...

      If you declare a "Penis Putt", which is a "Gimme" given the constraints, then you must use your instrument to prove it is a Gimme...

      If your Johnson falls short, then you must Putt with your Penis... You cannot use your hands in this process...

      It's a lot of pressure...

      JmHo...

    • The Foot Wedge is always with you whether you have your clubs or not...

      It's mighty handy, for instance, if your lie is say in the rough and a large Water Oak is between you and the pin...

      As long as you declare "Foot Wedge", there is no penalty... If you use the Foot Wedge without declaration, then the penalty is 3 strokes...

      The Foot Wedge ranks right up there with the "Penis Putter", another anatynomical instrument of interest, too some, especially the Beer Cart Babes...

    • Ortho,

      Yahoo seems to have rolling blackouts. I'm not having the problem. Sometimes when you first sign on, if you click on the "display entire message board" at the bottom, the problem goes away. Sometimes it doesn't.

      Market averages aren't that hideous today, but my watch list sure is. The stocks that are up are up by a nickel or so. Much red. Red is not good. I do not like red on watch lists.

      I could turn this whole market around if I bought puts on an index or went short. Maybe I'll do that and take one for the team.

      • Lib...

        Thanks will give it a try. Market may be responding to assinine profit reports from Exxon Mobil Qtry earnings up $44B on every other industry's backs, This is not healthy for over-all economy. Do not deny them profits, but this is insane. Even with higher/barrel costs the downstream marketing profits and for the consumers of petro products is totally out of whack with other economic indicators and performance. If this continues, despite Dubya's speech tonite, the Repub's are going to really get burned in the mid years and that will really generate one helluva of a shi$t fight for the next 2 yrs of GW's term. GW and Cheney better council their oil patch buds to stop passing through insane pricing. Saw where a Bakersfield, CA station was charging $3.02 for regular.

        I'm afraid he will loose valuable Repub support as well in both Houses for all of his intiatives(sic). Coupled with DeLay's assinine attitude, GW has some major damage control to do. Made a big political gaff with moderates when he flew back from Texas with DeLay. Photo-op was not good!(Persh, nor was you pal Frist doing himself any major favors with the majority of the Repub's moderate majority this past weekend)

        Lib, watch the short positions, could really get burned in some sectors; especially with volatility fairly rampant(sic) now.

        Thanks again for the tip, we'll give it a shot.

      • Being clairvoyant is a curse... Yahoo! Servers are crunching at 110% most of the time...

        Timing can be a problem in that the connections may time-out prior to locating the desired URL or website, or a nice little place the message can find a home...

        Considering storage drives, most are circular... This means when they are brand spankin new, the data is stored very close to the center, or the core... This data is retreivable almost instantaneously...

        As data is accumulated, it is stored concentrically towards the outter edges... Similar to the life lines apparent on the cross-section of a tree...

        What does this mean...? It means as you accumulated data, the further it gets out on the disc, the more time it takes to retrieve... Sometimes the Disc cannot seek and deliver adequate space before the task times out...

        This is a dilemma for Yahoo! and although they want to keep the public happy, at some point the maintenance is simply going to cost too much... It's coming...

        Even as I hit post on this message, the likely hood of it finding a place on Track 4.651 Gillion is a poke and hope... If I don't get the "Can't find URL" message, I will be very surprised...
