    Love this show!!! I always wondered why Bruce went with the fast version of Real World after this show, both on album and subsequent live shows. Any ideas on this ?? I agree with the above comment.

    One of the great mysteries of the world. I think even Bruce wonders. At least, on the Devils & Dust tour, on the few occasions that he pulled out the original slow version of "Real World", he muttered something about how it got away from him on the Human Touch album.

    May I suggest a PSA on the main boards advising everyone to use a free hosting site rather than upload to the Lake? Many people don't look down here unless they are experiencing a problem.

    I may do that eventually, but I'm still kind of assessing what's needed. I may turn the file size up again if it can be done without skyrocketing the cost of the Amazon S3.

    Is it possible to just delete files older than 3 months? And then do that like every 3rd month.

    I used to use other places to upload. But eventually files got smaller and adds got more.

    Anything's possible, but I don't like to delete stuff if I can avoid it. And there would be no way to tell which attachment appear in threads that are still active.

  3. The other day when the server was having problems, it was due to us running out of disk space. One of the things that really took up space was files uploaded through this message board. All files are now stored on an Amazon S3 cloud drive. I may turn up the file size again when I know for sure how much space we use, how much bandwidth we use, etc. That determines how much we need to pay for the Amazon cloud drive, if anything.

    And yes, I can only encourage you to use some other service if you want to store large images and then link to them. That would help keep GL at its current cost, which is high enough as it is.

  4. I can't really test this as I don't have an iPhone. Everything works fine on my Android. If the problem just started, it could be related to a minor upgrade I did a few days ago. In that case, a fix is bound to be released soon.

    It’s good to have somewhere I can say that without sounding mad! Or I might sound bonkers but then so is everyone else here.

     

    Don't worry. We are the normal ones. It's the rest of the world that's  bonkers.
