Disruption in email sending - Mood:Surprised
Wednesday July 17 20139:01:20 PM |
Amazon sent me a noticed saying they are blocking emails from being sent because too many are bouncing so for the time being, emails I don't think are going out from YT. Never had any problems in the past so I'm not sure what brought this on. I'm working on a back up email sending solution.

MIssing IMages - Mood:Good
Wednesday August 22 20126:55:49 PM |
Hi guys, the image server (that holds older images) is down at the moment, so this is why you see missing images. I'm going to work to get it back up.

Sunday October 16 20111:13:48 AM |
Have been dealing with a lot of server problems starting last night and continuing. I have gone down to the server and replaced a failed hard drive, updated firmware, and the am trying to rebuild the array, but have had several crashes. Sorry about the down time. I'm working on it.

10 Years - Mood:Good
Wednesday July 13 20118:06:33 PM |
Just reflecting on the fact that Youthink.com has been up for over 10 years now. A lot has changed in that time!

Sinus Surgery - Mood:Good
Thursday November 04 20103:41:49 PM |
So, I had sinus surgery on Tuesday to open up my sinus passages. They worked on three sinuses on both sides of my head. I have had a sinus infection since June and after 12 weeks of anti-biotics this was the only option left.

Anyway, just got the packing out today (incredibly painful) and am happy to be breathing through my nose again. This is my first foray into the office.

Next on the docket is to catch up on my sleep.

Happy Halloween! - Mood:Good
Monday November 01 201012:13:16 AM |
Just went trick or treating with our 1 1/2 year old. He was pretty scared at most houses, but really enjoyed the sucker, which was the one piece of candy he was actually allowed to eat.

Trying to cut down on PM spam - Mood:Good
Friday April 02 20102:43:17 PM |
A lot of people have noticed that spammers are abusing Private Messages... it's a pain to keep having to spam delete and ban them over and over again.

I made a few changes that I hope will help with the problem:

1) You can not send a PM to multiple recipients at once unless you are a key member

2) If you are not a key member, and are starting a new private thread, you need to enter some Captcha text to prove you're a human

If these two things don't prove to be enough, I'll do more.

My Mom - Mood:Good
Thursday March 11 20106:10:21 AM |
At 12:44 AM today, my Mom, Judy Johnson (YT handle johnsonjudit) passed away. Her passing was very peaceful. She was diagnosed with ovarian cancer less than a year ago.

I know many of you had become friends with her on YT and she really enjoyed her YT buddies and was always very proud of me for making this website.She even had a little YT get together at her house (where I grew up).

My Mom was the best mother anyone could ever hope for.

Run-In with Crazy Lady on my Walk - Mood:Good
Thursday February 04 201012:59:02 PM |
My wife joins my son and me on our regular walk this morning. When we come to the house where there's always a car parked blocking the sidewalk, I mention to Erika (in a normal voice), "This car is always parked here. It's so rude."

We leave the sidewalk to walk around the car, then re-join the sidewalk and continue on a few houses past. Out of nowhere, a woman in her bathrobe storms out of the house with the offending car and demands that I tell her why it's rude. I (calmly, I think) point out what I think is obvious- - it's rude because she's blocking the sidewalk, and in addition to being rude, it's illegal.

She insists that the sidewalk in front of her driveway is her property and she can block it if she pleases. She goes on to say that she's a victim because her house was built such that the driveway in front of her two car garage is too short to fit a car.

(continued)

My new web site - Mood:Good
Tuesday January 19 201010:24:16 PM |
I recently launched a new site with a couple of partners:

http://www.pilatesanytime.com

It's basically a virtual online Pilates studio with HD quality video. Fingers crossed it will do well!

Downtime, Archives Disabled - Mood:Good
Saturday December 19 20091:37:47 AM |
Hey guys,

Sorry about the downtime today. Bad server crash. Was on the line with tech support for hours and hours figuring it out.

Also, I have not been able to get the archive database back online. Will take a couple of days (probably not until Sunday). Sorry once again!

Santa Matches Have Been Sent - Mood:Good
Sunday December 06 20095:19:35 PM |
I just send out the private messages that tell you who you are sending a gift or e-card to. If you're participating, especially if you are sending a physical gift, please do it soon.

One tip- - If the person is in a different country, try online shopping with a web site that is headquartered in their country (to save on shipping charges).

New Server Online - Mood:Good
Tuesday November 03 200910:37:38 PM |
Bought a new server (on eBay of course) and just got it online. Hopefully it will mean more speediness for the site. It's about 4 times faster than the old model servers the site was running on (but of course there's only the one of them). Plan to bring a second one online soon if all goes well with experiment.

Trying to speed things up - Mood:Good
Friday October 02 20095:13:55 PM |
Made a few changes to try and speed the site up a little bit. As part of doing this, I had to lose the clock and the count of how many users are online from the top bar. Lemme know if you notice any big problems. I'm already seeing one...

My new site: List-Alert - Mood:Good
Thursday September 24 20097:32:04 PM |
Just launched a new web site. The idea is if you are looking for something on Craigslist, it will send you an email when someone posts the thing you're looking for (so you don't have to keep checking every day).

Very simple concept, I hope people like it.

Here it is:

http://www.list-alert.com

Let me know if you find any problems with it. Just launched it today.

Fixed Favorites - Mood:Good
Friday July 31 20091:24:14 AM |
Had a few people point out that the favorites feature was broken... it's working now.

If it doesn't work for you, you might still have the old version of the javascript. Try Control-F5 to do a super refresh. Or on Mac, hold down shift while clicking the refresh button.
