Of course I had to start looking up The Seeds. Their first single was "Can't Seem To Make You Mine" which was covered by several bands over the years, including . . . uhhhh . . . Garbage!!

Actually, singer Sky Saxon of the Seeds passed away just last month.


True story --- back in the late sixties when I was a kid (I'm dating myself now) the pop/dance TV show Hullabaloo filmed over Easter break in Palm Springs ... I would go to the park where they filmed and would spend the day watching all the teenage weirdness. And yes, Sky Saxon and the Seeds lip-synch perfomed "Pushing Too Hard". Also saw Jefferson Airplane "White Rabbit", the Electric Prunes "Psychotic Reaction", Dave Clark Five and Paul Revere and the Raiders.

Re: Has anyone saw my forum? - 09/26/09 02:56 PM


No. Your "forum" has been a part of your sig since you came here.

I wouldn't want to offend you, but why would a 12 year old want to hang with a bunch of old foggies? Don't you know of any young friends who belong to social forum's similar to this "Stan's Lounge" that you would find more in common with and things to talk about.

I know a couple of us are 73 yrs old. I wracked my brain trying to thin of a participant who might be 30 years old. I'm not sure we even have any under 40* yrs old? I wonder what the average age would be of our membership? [I have grandchildren older than you.]

Don't go away, if you think this place is for you. We do have Macintosh in common, but I can't think of much else. I'm into totally different music tastes than yours.

Hoping the best for you and your life. smile


*Question to MacTech forum members:

Is anyone here under the age of 40? Just curious.

Posted by: Ben Dover

Re: Has anyone saw my forum? - 09/26/09 03:42 PM

There were a lot of young kids in the old MCF days. The gamer kids, X? (before went to Penn State), Crayz, that kid with an old Sparc, bunch of others, a younger NewKojak, etc, Akula of course.

But I suppose now everybody is old and is dying in graceful or graceless old age or something.

Yeah, a young person really has no business here. They should go where there's some life.

I think Trey's a couple years on one side of 30 or the other.

And speaking of 73-year-olders, Kate: You're just a few months younger than my Mom, IIRC. I sure wish she had your sense of adventure, curiosity and sticktoitiveness when it comes to computers. She'd have a lot of fun with it if she'd just not let her trepidation scare her away from doing more than passing along stupid jokes and YouTube kitty-cat links. She wants to do a cookbook, and I've set her up with a template in Pages, but she Just. doesn't. get. it.

I sent her a message and told her that I had always pictured her as a wildly independent 30-something Seattle hipster type ... and even today I think of Ethel that way laugh

I guess first impressions are everything.

Re: Has anyone saw my forum? - 09/26/09 05:19 PM

Not directed at you Trey.

Everyone needs to remember that along with keeping Stan's work alive, Neil wants to try and incorporate a technical forum into his long established MacTech website. These things cost money to operate. In order to accomplish that he needs to get more users, so there can't be a 40 year old age limit or something. We've had excitable people before, we still do, even in us old farts. I mean we even have one that admits he's an unreasonable man. wink

We're all different personalities, and thanks to free will we all have the option to not click on a topic, or we have the option to read past someone if you don't think it would be up your alley. We do that now anyway, not everyone here meshes.

That's all. cool

Hey, Ed. Speaking of young'uns. There was also that young guy... I think he was from Colorado. Menikmati or something like that. Into skatepunk and Macs. He posted a great deal in the early 2000s then gradually faded away. Must be in his early-20s now, I'm guessing. Good guy.

I'm pushing 50. Bet that puts me squarely in the middle of the pack with this bunch.

Posted by: Ben Dover

Re: Has anyone saw my forum? - 09/26/09 07:32 PM

There were quite a few. I copied the MCF user list down to something like those with 15 posts or more - I'll clean that up at some point when I get back to work (nearly three year hiatus, doin nothin, nada, zip - when I work, I work on everything) and post that.

Yeah, I remember Menikmati. He posted a lot, and was pretty spot on.

Well, I saw 60 this year, and need to whip myself back into good shape or else my kids will overtake me, and the idea is to have them running harder and harder to catch up smile , and also not break myself up skiing, horses, etc.

Having kids sort of pushes you to maintain vigor. Thankfully, I survived skateboarding without breaking anything, and now am trying to survive ice skating without breaking anything. I'm trying to get them to skate with reckless abandon, which of course requires an example, which so far has not broken me smile

They like to rock climb, too, but I made the mistake of tellling the tale of us country lads doing freestyle climbing before there was a term - With any luck, it's uncool, and since it's equipmentless, there's nothing to brand smile

Would you men who love posting pictures of women's breasts, and someone said "suckin on penis" and other adult content that is posted here, . . . would you show those things to a young girl in your presence and have someone in your company say such things with this 12 year old girl standing next to you? You might as well provide porn to juviniles!! But you all know I am a prude. She says her father does not mind. Well,I'm not sure what that says about her father?

Yes, we have had young folks/children almost in this forum. Well, not actually. This forum today is not what it was five or 10 years ago. You think moderators are tough today, well then just think back some years ago. Not everyone liked it, but things were a lot stricter in times gone past.

Just like the rest of the world and real life, courtesy, consideration and civility have relaxed to today's standards. No I wouldn't go back to the standards of 1800s. Nor would I go back to the standards of the 1950s. I will try to keep up with the times, but most of the time I do it sadly and sometimes disappointed in what sometimes takes place here.

In my own eyes, this is an adult rated Lounge. I would not have any 12 year old I know allowed to take part in it. The technical forums would be helpful for young Macintosh users, I agree.

Remember, these are just my opinions and will not change anything here. I will respect all the responses and your opinions as stated too.

Reboot, when you consider how I feel about this forum, it will not surprise you to know that my own feeling about the prospect of building up numbers of people actually participating here is about zero, zip, natta! I am referring to the Lounge and Soapbox of course. If people can avoid reading those two places, I think the tech forums have a chance. For Niel's sake I hope it does grow. Obvious that quite a few new folk in the past weeks have requested help. That is good.

I am not against young folks joining this forum to gain Macintosh knowledge. However, would you want your granddaughter, at age 12, to read the posts in our Lounge or SoapBox? If this young lady in question were your niece would you still feel the same way and as welcoming and encouraging her to visit the Lounge?

My daughter was debating politics at age 12 - not with the language that gets tossed about in the box sometimes, but she was always aware and knowledgeable about socio/political topics. We should always be aware that there could be younger folks lurking here and keep things more or less above the use of foul, abusive language to make a point.

Re: Has anyone saw my forum? - 09/26/09 07:52 PM

I agree Michael

After all when we were 12 , there was no personal computers back then and not to mention allot stuff that we take for granted today , like the internet , youTube yada yada

In some ways my 12 year old granddaughter is way ahead of me when I was 12 - then again there are allot more dangers out there today then there was yesterday .

Re: Has anyone saw my forum? - 09/26/09 08:38 PM

Well, the thing that hasn't changed about being young is not having a developed frontal lobe; for some odd reason in the process of forming a separate identity, they get weird and mean with the ones they love; and their hormones and puberty mess that up further. They're basically lunatics, and it's a normal part of the process. If you believe in a god, it's how he made us, and most of us survive it just fine, despite a changing world and the stuff it throws at kids.

Love and support counts for more than a lot of mediation stuff that is really pretty powerless against a pretty nonmediatable process. If you want control over your kids, love and support is the most effective way. Other more mediated ways are a lot less effective.

One of the things I was NOT looking forward to when asked to help moderate here was things getting out of control and receiving a tone of moderate notifications, I must admit that the place has been pretty cool. There have been very few times when Neil or one of the mods have had to step-in.

One of the things I've loved about MacMinute and now MacTech is that us MCF refugees have, for the most part, all stuck with this place. Though I really miss some of our old friends (Marg, Alec, and a few others), I would like to see some influx of new users. It helps keep things fresh.

You have a forum? Is that was this thread was all about? Heck, the reason I was banned from Apple Discussions was for posting off topic, so that's why I'm still here. We don't don't get banned from this place for posting off topic. wink

I've befriended the murder of crows that hang out around our house by feeding them leftovers. They are awesome, because now they watch out over my house and yard and sound an alarm when there are any coyotes or other intruders about. When my cat sneaks outside and I can't find her, and she won't come home when I'm out there calling for her, the crows find her for me and scare the bejeebers out of her until she comes running for the back door. smile

Before all that "grrrrrr"-ing gives you a sore throat, understand this:

Threads deviate as they have been because many of us are latching onto obscure cultural references and having fun with wordplay.

The older and more experienced a person is, the more opportunities like this will suggest themselves.

What are you so afraid of? Worried you'll find some band you like better?

Are you worried that word will get back to Shirley, and that she won't send you any more private messages through the car radio?



Seriously, though...I thought it was old people who had the lock on not having progressive, adventurous musical tastes? JSYK, I'm 50, and I still take the time to seek out cool new bands and artists. Sure, there are bands I fell in love with when I was a kid that I still really like, but why should I let that stop me from enjoying other stuff?

Do you worry that if you eat at Wendy's that McDonalds might become offended?

Sounds pretty silly, eh?

Fun fact: I found The Police when I was about five years old. My uncle had taught me how to use his vinyl turntable and I also knew how to read somehow already. So I notice on the back of this one album 'The Police' (remember, English is not my native tongue, and I definitely didn't know any of it back then then, well, the Finnish word for 'police' - 'poliisi' is pretty close...) anyways, I took the album out and laid it carefully on the turntable and put on the headphones. I was sold to that band ever since, still consider them my all time favorite. And the album in question? 'Ghost in the Machine'.

Actually, I was winkingly inferring something a little creepier and crazier, but your interpretation will suffice for now.

And for me, it was seeing The Beatles on the Ed Sullivan show. Shortly thereafter I bought their "Hard Day's Night" soundtrack...first album from my own money. And I just KNEW—at age 5—that music would be a deeply important force in my life.

With the here and now, and Garbage .... we once had a kid that posted lots of Good Charlotte clips and wanted us to know that this was the bestfreakinbandever. I doubt even a single forum member ever clicked his links.

But it seems that on this forum that we all have very eclectic tastes. We've rambled on about Zappa, Django Reinhardt or Porcupine Tree, Mozart and Bill Frisell ... and lots of Dylan.

Two quick questions about your forum:

Why do you need a moderator when you only has 4 user beside you (two of which signed up because you asked here)?

I was going to ask you if you wanted to join my forum:
http://forums.hooters.com/
It will be divided in forums on tactile physics, fluid physics, jiggly physics, and photonuclear reactions.

How? and the Mission of my forum- which I haven't really written yet, is this:
The Lounge Lizard forums is a place where freedom of speech rules. Nothing is ever censored, or frowned upon. You won't get bnned for breathing someone elses air. That's how it should be.

If it was aimed at doing 360º virtual photos or HDR or something that interested me then maybe... but just to hang out??
Nah.

'Have Love Will Travel' - This sucker's catchy - I think they got a national play out of it

I like their cover of fellow Northwesterners, The Kingsmen. Louie Louie.

However, I can't help but likin Rufus Thomas Walkin the Dog (with Blues Brothers Band) - This should be sufficiently good whack smile This is some of that Memphis/Stax sound that Macpirate likes. Great stuff.

Re: Has anyone saw my forum? - 09/29/09 01:46 PM

Here's the irony:

After all of Ms. PChater's begging us to join her nebulous forum, and her bluster about her FineTunedMac dis-n-banning, I went and checked it out. I've been miffed by MacFixit's jump to the C|Net hive, and decided to register at the FTM Forum. I see some names of folks there who have helped me out in the past at MacFixit...FTM Forums looks like another good go-to place for troubleshooting help when I can't suss the rare problem out on my own.

So, there is that, anyway.

Hey, I checked out FTM. Looks pretty boring compared to here ... and they don't seem to have much tolerance for Garbage.

Re: Has anyone saw my forum? - 09/29/09 03:43 PM

I saw many of the same posters as at MFI and registered when they opened. I'm everywhere.

It is a different format than here, more technical, less fluff, less off topic in posts. For example if you were talking about cameras and a question or comment about batteries for it popped up in my head, and then we veered off on rechargeable batteries in general and not camera specific postings, it would be noted to keep things on topic. It's the way the MFI forums were, they're just keeping the same format. It's the way they want the place so I respect that of course, but I like socializing here more because of the diverse directions some posts take. I lurked at MFI, and do at FTM, and like you, it was one of the stops I referenced when I had a problem I couldn't figure out. Can't remember the last time that happened though. smirk

Re: Has anyone saw my forum? - 09/29/09 03:53 PM

When I want tech help, I don't want fluff. When I want fluff, I know how to find the off-topic section on any forum that has one.

I don't mind topics in tech threads meandering so long as they remain reasonably germane. Your camera/batteries thing is a good example. In a good community, the members have enough common-mentality and gravitas that they can usually steer threads in the direction they should be moving, should a newbie commit a local faux pas or a known renegade start stomping the carpet with their muddy boots. I think that in VERY few cases—almost anywhere—should a moderator be needed to step in with their hands on their holsters, so long as the regularly active community has reached a sufficient mass.
