Note from Management.

Apparently scribd switched to HTML 5 a few days ago. If you're using Safari, Chrome, or Firefox, no problem. You know where I'm going, don't you? If you're using IE, problem. Have gotten a few complaints from readers about the page loading slowly or getting script error messages. I'm trying to resolve the issue but if you're having that problem, switching browsers should avoid the problem until its fixed. Sorry.

I hope YOU get this fixed. I don't plan to switch browsers.
If you can't fix it, then...nice while it lasted. See ya!

Well if anyone is using IE, that's their first mistake there.

Like anyone will know, let alone care, that you are gone.

For the record, I've been having trouble loading this page with my Blackberry. Don't know if that is connecting or not to this other script issue. Don't have a clue as to what kind of program Blackberry uses for internet...

Just informing. :-)

Switched to Chrome recently; much faster than IE.

I like Firefox; I worry Google is collecting information - wasn't Google started by CIA money or something like that?

I'll care. I usually enjoy the exchanges here, but have been having so many computer probs I dare not change browsers since I'm not very computer savvy.
Nice response from you, though -- very friendly. Not hard to guess from whence it spewed...

Hey I got an 80126 Burrough Compu running text with limited graphics on a Yahoo browser, circa 1992. This site is SMOKIN' fast!!!

I was once thought the same way as you. If it ain't broke don't fix it. I finally gave in and downloaded Firefox. It was quick. Painless. and I found it was much better than IE. I also later found its a more secure browser. You will like it better. The auto spellchecker while you are typing is nice as well. IE 8 is where FF was a couple of years ago. All you do is go to firefox.com, download it, then install on your machine. Its pretty easy. I think you will be pleasantly surprised.

NOW for you Blackberry people you shoulld be using operamini anyway unless you are stuck with a Torch like me. I hate this phone.

Firefox downloaded, first thing it did was load all the spyware from Paypal and the Google sites.

Going back to IE with all the spyware blockers.

Thank you for your kind response, Kingfish. I appreciate the info you provided re Firefox and will likely start using it.

Oops, just read you comment, 7:45, after I posted my reply to KF.
This is the sort of thing that makes me uncertain about making changes.
Now I think I'll wait before abandoning IE.

Bullshit. Pull your head out of your ass.

8:15 - Nope, it all showed in the bottom bar what was loading.

Bullshit.

8:41 -- All the "bottom bar" does is show what elements of the page are loading...it has nothing to do with the browser. You just happened to be on a page with Google and Paypal ads.

If you want an adblocker, there are plenty of options for Firefox.

ok - Thanks. New to Firefox.

Don't know why so much hatred on here! Geez.

I use Chrome, Opera and Firefox. Rarely use IE. Chrome appears the most stable and quickest...

I've used Firefox on multiple machines for about 4 years and never had it install spyware. There are several blockers available.

NB: the site to get Firefox is Mozilla.com; the Firefox.com site pre-dated this browser and the owner kindly routes people to the correct site. While I'm plugging freebies I also recommend their (Mozilla) internet mail program, Thunderbyrd. I use it to access my comcast.net email account from several computers, but you need to know your ISP mail password to set it up. Runs great with no hassles once it's installed.

Kingfish said...

I fixed it, sort of. Took the embedded documents and linked them instead. Hate doing that because I like posting the document in the post but doesn't do me any good if IE users can't read it.

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).


Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.


In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.

Trollfest '07

Jackson Jambalaya is the home of Trollfest '07. Catch this great event which promises to leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Sonjay Poontang and his band headline the night with a special steel cage, no time limit "loser must leave town" bout between Alan Lange and "Big Cat"Donna Ladd following afterwards. Kamikaze will perform his new song F*** Bush, he's still a _____. Did I mention there was no referee? Dr. Heddy Matthias and Lori Gregory will face off in the undercard dueling with dangling participles and other um, devices. Robbie Bell will perform Her two latest songs: My Best Friends are in the Media and Mama's, Don't Let Your Babies Grow up to be George Bell. Sid Salter of The Clarion-Ledger will host "Pin the Tail on the Trial Lawyer", sponsored by State Farm.

There will be a hugging booth where in exchange for your young son, Frank Melton will give you a loooong hug. Trollfest will have a dunking booth where Muhammed the terrorist will curse you to Allah as you try to hit a target that will drop him into a vat of pig grease. However, in the true spirit of Separate But Equal, Don Imus and someone from NE Jackson will also sit in the dunking booth for an equal amount of time. Tom Head will give a reading for two hours on why he can't figure out who the hell he is. Cliff Cargill will give lessons with his .80 caliber desert eagle, using Frank Melton photos as targets. Tackleberry will be on hand for an autograph session. KIM Waaaaaade will be passing out free titles and deeds to crackhouses formerly owned by The Wood Street Players.

If you get tired come relax at the Fox News Tent. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both will entitle you to free drinks.Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required, just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '07 is for EVERYONE!!!
