For a good week to ten days Mudcat has been acting strange. Is it behaving that way for anyone else?

recently whenever I've logged in there are fewer threads on display, which means Max has been working on it.

Is the 'cat up and down, in and out?

Yes, it's both, but only temporarily. Schroedinger showed that the 'cat is simultaneously up and down (also simultaneously in and out), and its wave function collapses into one or the other only at the point that someone opens the web page.

Schroedinger postulated that the cat in the fridge might not actually have been there. I have yet to see the proof.

I knew when the thread opened the cat would be blown up. Thank you all.

Hold on! Schroedinger's cat was a feline, which could potentially be either dead or alive in its box. Isn't a mudcat a fish? That would be definitely dead after a little while in the box and out of water.

But back to the subject: I too had been noticing pages sometimes refusing to load recently and wondering what was up. Presumably that has inhibited new postings to some extent.

Richard, if the cat ate the fish and then blew up or didn't . . .

But thank you. I was wondering if it was only happening because of my laptop or something like that

I've been wondering about this. The 'Cat goes down, and I try to connect to reboot, and I can't get a connection. So, then I post something on Facebook to say the 'Cat may be down for a few hours until Max can get to it - and invariably, the 'Cat is working slicker than snot the next moment. Schroedinger's 'Cat, indeed.


I got a call from Max Sunday, so I asked him what the trouble is. He told me the one word I needed to know: Comcast.

Need I say more?

I'm constantly having troubles with Comcast at the women's center where I work, and it's 50 miles one way to go to fix things, so I have a very low opinion of Comcast. But Max, being Max, is not so quick to condemn. He says that for the 6 or 7 years that he lived in a cabin in the woods, he never had any connection problems with Comcast. Now that he's in a more urban setting, that's when the trouble started.

But, not to worry. He says he has established a relationship with an actual human technician who is not a recorded voice and does not live in India or the Philippines, but he did not reveal whether he has actually met this human technician face-to-face. But this is supposed to be the local technician and Max can call him directly without going through a system of menus, and Max is confident that he and the tech will work this thing out together fairly soon.

He says our servers are in excellent shape, and it's just the connection problem. And he doesn't blame Comcast. As always, Max maintains a Zen attitude about all this.

Please note that the above was written with approval or any other sort of imprimatur from Max. If asked, no doubt Max will respond, "Well, Joe embellished it a bit...."

End of story.
