Hey AC, what's up with the site? We have been down many times in the last week or so.

3308. wabbit - 4/8/2016 8:47:34 PM

AC, please check your email.

Hey Wab! Sorry to be slow. I'll check with our host Sigi about hosting issues.... what's actually been happening? Long periods of down-ness?

3310. alistairconnor - 4/11/2016 5:23:06 PM

Arky, I'm completely with you about Google pervasiveness. I don't log in when I use Chrome, I try to keep identities separate, and still they go bigdata on my ass and propose unnerving correlations that they shouldn't be knowing about.

Ah well. It's not that I've actually got anything to hide. So I've got nothing to fear eh... yeah nah.

I don't either, except my banking, my job stuff Which includes all kinds of stuff the state of ar requires that I don't trust them with, my fam, my life, my credit cards....

3312. Ms. No - 4/12/2016 7:12:31 PM

Hi AC,

Yeah, lots and lots of down-ness over the last three weeks or so.

Re:Big Data

I'm tired of being marketed to. I'm weary unto-death of consumerism and advertising to consumers. Bleh. Makes me want to go live in the woods.

I don't like that my phone world is my Google world(s), and none of it seems to be secure from anything except the government apparently. Companies to me seem to be far too Cavalier about how they handle personal data, and Google et al are far too Cavalier about what they allow companies to access. If the government wants to hack into a phone, they should build a two bit app like Crossy Road and ask for any permission they think they need. And I really don't think Apple is any better. It's part of the reason that I made my phone my Blackberry, though I still use my Droid for everything except call and text.

AC, *please* email me.

3315. judithathome - 6/8/2016 8:35:08 PM

Yes, please do....I am willing to donate money IF I can get in here more than once every two weeks.

So, I tried to visit the Mote several times in the last week or so and received an Ubutu error. What happened? Do you all have a designated non-Mote safe place to regroup when this happens?

3319. judithathome - 7/16/2016 8:41:37 PM

You can come to my forum, Talkalot, at Able Minds...I'll pay the $10 annual fee for you!

MsNo has joined...we're up every day and have been for about 5 years.

Yep -- I haven't been very diligent about posting lately, but it's been up every time I've gone and there are some cool folks there.

3322. arkymalarky - 7/19/2016 1:47:35 PM

Been so busy I haven't really posted anywhere, but we're picking up spook and Danny from the airport tomorrow, and after they leave I'm hoping to log in and check it out.

3323. vonKreedon - 7/19/2016 5:41:48 PM

I got the Ubutu error again yesterday.

Thanks Judith, I'll check it out.

3324. vonKreedon - 7/21/2016 5:29:07 PM

I'm getting the Unbutu error when I try to go to the Mote homepage, but I can get to specific threads. Any ideas? I'm running Chrome. Thanks.

3325. judithathome - 7/21/2016 6:29:50 PM

I attempt to get in here at least 3 times a day, every day...so far I am averaging once/twice a week.

So, hello everyone!

3326. Ms. No - 7/22/2016 7:29:45 PM

VK - good to know about specific threads. I'll try entering that way for awhile and see if I get through more reliably.
