If you are trying to get a gator permit

DO NOT USE FIREFOX!!!!! ONLY USE INTERNET EXPLORER!!!  If you click on the link in Firefox, the website will take you to the program guidelines.  If you click on the link in Explorer, it will take you to the permit application page as it is supposed to do.  Don't bother if you are trying to get one on the Rez, those are completely sold out as are the ones for the Vicksburg area. Nothing like a glitch in the system.  One friend was able to get one but used his Iphone as the site was frozen on his computer.

Yeah, Ricky Flynt was on the radio telling all how wonderful it was going to be.

Kingfish said...

Ricky is a good guy and knows his stuff. I'm not going to blame him where the fault lies with IT.

I guess it didn't occur to government employees that not everyone uses a government computer loaded with explorer.

It wasn't a browser issue, it was a bandwidth issue. The MDWFP server did not handle the traffic.

They sold out in 30 minutes...worked fine for me in Safari.

Kingfish said...

Disagree. I was able to get in several times using IE. Before and after using Firefox, I never could.

bradley barnes said...

i tried logging in from chrome at strait up 9 and mdwfp site was down.

I had the exact opposite happen to me. I tried and tried with IE but as soon as I used Firefox it worked. At the same time another guy in the office was able to get in using IE.

I blame Stump, he said over and over it would work, well guess what, it didn't work. He should have kept his trap shut if he was not sure.

How the hell is someone supposed to get a permit if they don't own a computer?

You all somehow believe that the process was designed for your convenience. News flash - it wasn't. The wildlife folks could care less how difficult the applicants had it, nor are they concerned in the least that you might not have a computer. They sold out of all their permits in 30 minutes, so it was a successful day for them.

The buck stops with Flynt. He hyped the hell out of it. IT is the tail, not the dog and it is Flynt's job to make sure all the potential scenarios were covered by his support groups. If Flynt isn't ultimately responsible then get his ass off TV and Radio and put the IT guys on instead.

Shit KF you sound like Obama at the launch of the Obamacare website.

Clicked on the MDWFP permit link using Explorer the second 9 o'clock hit. It wouldn't open obviously due to high traffic. After trying to refresh several times I used my phone and although it was very slow (I had a full signal) I was able to fill in my info and get to the zone selection page at 9:15. All zones were sold out except Northeast by then. Not making that drive.

I'd like to see the list of who got permits. I'd guess it'd show Hayes Dent, Pete Perry, some of the Barbours, Stacey Pickering, Pheel's barber's husband, Tater's limo driver, the Walkers and that ilk. Probably not a Dem in the bunch. Glitch my ass!

the draw was a crock of crap the mdwfp should be ashamed at all the hype that went into promoting how well it was going to run im not even in it but i knew the site was going to crash

Kingfish said...

Where is Melanie defending our right to hunt gators without a license?????

Kingfish said...

I can see bandwidth issues causing one to get "hung up" while waiting to access the right page. However, the link was taking me directly to the program guidelines. It was as if the link had not been updated. That is what is puzzling.

yea that the problem ricky said there would be no band with issues.

Leave The Damned Gators Be said...

There's nothing Kap'n Kaingaroo doesn't know. I'm sure he'll weigh in and 'splain it all. Gators love Kaingaroos.

Kingfish pandering and alibying for Flynt reminds me of Obama taking up for that woman who looks like Prince Charles and eventually firing her.

Who is the Hottest Reporter in Jackson?

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!!!
