Prayers for you and your family...sounds so trite at first, but I'm guessing everyone who has posted in response (and many who have not) are truly right behind you.
Amazing what perspective having family and significant others navigate the cancer world does to you - I never understood til the last 5 years.

Not to be political, just had a funny thought.


Is it possible HF is the website with the most interaction between Americans and Russians in the world?

HF is #3

#2 is a discussion board on Vodka.

#1 is the Bachelor/Bachlorette franchise. They love it. Boffo ratings there.

Checking out their tour schedule, I noticed that one of my favorite Finnish bands Amorphis will play in Columbus next week (Wednesday 3/22), supported by another Finnish band Swallow The Sun. They're also in Cleveland the day before. I urge you to go see them if you like heavier music! http://www.amorphis.net/#tour

Hey guys gotta question. So at work we're looking to tweak our website, starting with our gallery. Right now we use one called Cincopa but we want to upgrade. Any web designers among us who have any suggestions? Free is obviously welcome but we'll pay if it's worthwhile.

I don't know if this will help you at all, but I have a website and I use icompendium. I have a feeling it may not be as sophisticated as you're used to but it only takes a second to check it out.

I just checked out Juicebox, which I quite liked, but it seems to have compatibility issues with I.E. and Chrome. Normally I wouldn't really care but as we're reaching our clients we need to be as accessible as possible. I'll look into icompendium tomorrow. The website is all I've been working on lately.

Issues with Chrome comes as a major surprise, as that particular rendering engine is damn near universal by now (the same overall codebase - with some tweaks - is used in Safari on OSX and iPhones/iPads, and nearly every single Android-based browser, plus plenty of other desktop browsers like Opera and Vivaldi). IE, on the other hand, I'd be shocked if it worked at all.

That's what surprised me too. But when I tried to run it in Chrome I got the same error message I did in IE. I was uploading images using Flickr, which I don't particularly care for, and I suppose it's possible it was a Flickr issue.

That seems more probable to me. I'm not as familiar with photo gallery software, though, so I wouldn't know much beyond that. I write more web-based stuff than I actually install.

Flickr is an enormous pain in every way. It's cobbled together out of a ton of different scripts that limit accessibility if there's anything wrong with any of them, and it's like balancing a bowling ball on top of a house of cards.

Nearly any image server would be better than that. Except Photobucket, which is even worse than Flickr.

Since we're a virtual lock for the playoffs this year, we get to meaningfully participate in the annual HFCanes Bandwagon Fan Draft. Yay! We're picking 5th overall, and right now the Blackhawks (4th overall) are on the clock. So we may want to start thinking about who to pick.

Complete list of all draft-eligible fans, with profile page links.


Interesting draft candidates IMO:
  • TheOllieC: He's a local and already follows the Jackets, so we know he'll perform. OTOH, we might be able to get him as a UFA.
  • Lempo: Because everybody knows we always draft Finns. Also, this post: http://hfboards.hockeysfuture.com/sh...#post129157489
  • halleJOKEL: Infamy, mostly. We need more Big Names because nobody knows who's on the roster here.
Thoughts?

I say we still draft TheOllieC, it'll show the fan base that we care about homegrown talent and he'd be great in the community too. And frankly, it would be a PR disaster if we didn't and some other team then snatches him.

UNLESS! If we leave him to be picked by another team, he then refuses to sign and we trade Steve Duchesne, Peter Forsberg, Ron Hextall, Mike Ricci, Kerry Huffman, Chris Simon, a couple of draft picks and $15 million the ghost of Tulipunaruusu for him.

We survived Roslovic going to Winnipeg, tho.

FYI, we are about to be on the clock.

Yeah I don't like either one of them. Unfortunately I did like the looks of this gallery, Juicebox, which allows me to either upload images locally or only through Flickr. If I upload locally Chrome users (and IE users) can't view them, thus leaving me with the option of using Flickr. The problem I'm running into is that when I'm running it in Chrome having uploaded my images through Flickr I'm getting this error message: Juicebox cannot display locally in this browser. When I troubleshoot it tells me this: Certain browsers contain a security restriction that disables loading local files, and that I should load my images externally. Which makes my head hurt because I'm pretty sure that's what I did with Flickr.

Basically I'm at the point of looking into yet another gallery I guess.

I agree that Ollie is the pick, presuming it hasn't already been made.

Well, it's been six hours and nobody else has spoken up, so I'm taking that as acceptance.

I was hoping you'd go GMDM and change the pick on your way to the podium.

I considered it, but the correct thing to do was clearly a Ville Sirén parody, so overriding the head scout was not in the cards.
