On the main M/cat page, at the top, just above where it says 'Personal Page' is the word 'etta'

What is the significance of this?

It used to be "awe".

There is some Javascript in the homepage that gets stuff from the domain "etta.mudcat.org". There is an identical function that does the same stuff using the domain "mudcat.org". Both involve Chartbeat, about which I know nothing except that blocking it makes Mudcat run a lot faster.

Where you're getting 'etta', I've got 'awe'.

What can it all mean?

If "awe" is still going, it means Max is using multiple servers for load balancing or redundancy.

Which is pretty darn clever, particularly as it's almost invisible to ordinary users. Great job.

Max is a fan of Etta James, 1938-2012, so he named our newest server after her. Here's a performance of what was probably her most famous song, "At Last."I wonder if she did her performing from a wheelchair for a long time, or if it was only in her last year or so of life.

I'm a fan, too. Wish I had seen her perform in person.

Joe,
My comment of 31 Oct 14 - 01:51 PM was intended as a joke with no inkling that it may have been somewhere near the truth.
Vic Smith
Third fan of Etta James to be identified on this thread.

Here in Ireland etta = Engineering and Technology Teachers' Association, so technically I'm a member of 'etta', so are you all in 'awe'?

If you get time track down the movie Cadillac Records with Beyoncé Knowles playing Etta James There is some wonderful singing.
Then listen to Etta James singing 'Loves been rough on me' it will break you heart.

Aretha Franklin covers "At Last" on her latest record "Sings the Diva Classics".

I was privileged to see Etta James perform once in the 80s. She sang "Your Cheatin' Heart", and I remember to this day the chills that ran down my spine at the line "YOU'LL WALK THE FLOOR" - delivered with a power and menace that no country singer could rival. Etta was an elemental force. RIP.
