Just thought I should mention that I changed my av. Since I've been out of the brewing game for a bit, I figured I would mix it up a little. Soon as I get to brewing again, I'll be pantless again, though.  ;D

Im not happy with the change. You should change it back.

And why not brew some extract stove top style?

I feel you... I've been out of the game, too and I have no idea when I'll be able to get back in it. Probably not until I find a new place, and once I do my brewing options may be limited. :(

Boo!  No more Good, Bad, and the Ugly!

I plan on moving to Madison next summer, I maybe be out of the brewing game for a while also.  So maybe I'll change my avatar once I move to something different for a while, until I get to brewing again.  Either that or I'll do some stovetop extract batches for a while.  Why the hell not!

Once you go black you never go back. Ok, that really does not apply here I guess. Right now, it's all a storage thing. #1 nothing to store my brewed beer in. Kegs are still in Ohio. #2 All my brewing equiptment is in storage, on the other side of town. I literally have no place to store my stuff here. No garage at the house. There is a small garden shed next to the mancave. It
s packed to the point of bursting. The spare room in the basement, that's not yet finished, is supposed to be our kitchen. It's so crammed full of stuff, I have resignede to the fact that I will not have my own kitchen. Thwere is just no where to put my gear.
  Thus, the addition to the mancave. But, thats on hold till I get the funds together. I am taking donations. For just the price ofa cup of coffeee a day, you can help a needy brewer.....So, until the brewery gets built, you're stuck with the new bacon avatar. You'll have to learn to love, and embrace it.  ;D

By the way - Beersk and Cap, I see red Xs for avatars. Fix 'em up, boys!
Title: Re: Avatar change
Post by: capozzoli on December 19, 2010, 06:37:34 PM
Really? I see it fine. Is that red X on my end?  I can see bersks too.

Maybe you have us blocked.

I hate when people change their Avatar. I associate them with the picture, at least for quick identification purposes. Its already like playing concentration trying to remember who everyone is. The Avatar helps a lot.

I say pic an Avatar and stay with it.

Capp, I see yours as a red X also and I don't have anything blocked.  Matter of fact, I've just started seeing my own displayed as a red X for me.  Seems something might be going on with the avatars.

They are fine on my end.  No red x's, just new, unfamiliar avatars.

yep, its the right size. What else could be the problem? Why can some people see it and others get a red X?
Title: Re: Avatar change

I see your avatar, in fact, I've never seen a red X on anyone.

Red X here....sometimes etraffic can get blacklisted between servers if there is a spam thing

Red Xs here too (except for this dang miniature red doby with bad teeth that keeps following me around)

A single red X?

I can deal with two red Xs or maybe three. But one...

Something must be done.

Are you guys sure its not your wacky computers, or maybe you just started hitting them a little early today?

Red X's here too, man.
Title: Re: Avatar change

I get no red X's using firefox.  Using IE I get X's for Cap, Mikey, euge, beersk, and hokerer and I can see the avatars of everyone else that posted in the thread.
Title: Re: Avatar change
Post by: Mikey on December 20, 2010, 03:07:13 AM
Still no red X's and I'm using Chrome.

Don't know what's going on??  I saw I had the "red X" yesterday. Checked my profile settings & reloaded the avatar. Seems to be working now???  Cheers!!!

ditto

At work (IE) I see red X's - at home (Firefox), all good

URLs are the same for both broken and unbroken avatars. There might be a metadata issue that IE isn't getting. Do you guys remember what the file type of the images you uploaded was?

Those X's you're getting from IE is its way of telling you that you should switch browsers.

Except for the fact that, like akr above, when you're at work, you most likely don't have a choice of browsers.

Everyone's IT policy is different so it depends of course.  But ours is pretty restrictive as far as installing software and firefox works fine here.  Another option is to load firefox onto a usb drive and run it from there.

Post by: MrNate on December 20, 2010, 03:59:16 PM
I don't want to get into browser arguments, but I'd reccommend Chrome over FF over IE.

Still doesn't address the core issue, though.

Not so much "pretty restrictive" if they allow you to connect your thumb drive to your work computer :)

True.  Pretty restrictive from a commercial standpoint I guess.  Not secure/classified restrictive.

If you are using IE8, it doesn't support images created with CMYK color profiles.  IE9 is supposed to fix this.

I haven't changed a thing since a couple days ago but now I can see all (including my own) the avatars that I couldn't see a while back.  Don't know what's going on.

Another weird thing I'm encountering is when I log in the first time it doesn't recognize my password & I have to re-enter it. I know I can't be fat fingering it every time...  Cheers!!!
