Can we get rid of it or go back to the Jack sig? It was poignant and funny back in the election days, but now it might be a bit jarring to the random passerby. Yes? Or am I just an overly sensitive snowflake?

I mean, really, we should be firing our subtitles by tweet without warning or discussion on a regular basis.

I often feel like I am walking into an empty room when visiting here. There's a slight sense of heat and residual echo that subtly permeates the air though, physical evidence that someone was here moments ago, and I just missed them.

I'm with 709. I've been a member since '04 and rarely complain about AppleNova. In fact, I build it up to my friends and family. Might be time to put a rest to it.

Please?



And, yes, Grey, you are an overly sensitive snowflake!

Since November 2016, I have tried to live my life without politics or football, and it has been the most peaceful time of my life.

Something like this might be fun as an updated subtitle to still fill the same niche.

Firing our subordinates by tweet since 04... as an example.

Making up facts to Prime Ministers since 04....

Making Apple Great Again since 04.....

Just have some fun with it.

I'm very okay with references to the orange atrocity being removed. Bring back Jack.

I just popped in and there's NOTHING in the header - did something happen to make it go away? WHAT DID I MISS????

I still talk with Yontsey, Wyatt, jdcfsu/justincox, chucker & capella fairly regularly on Twitter, but I don't think many others here made the progression over there. Or they did, but then disappaeared, like Scates.

Just seems like there was a time where there were 37 new threads a day and then it all of a sudden dropped to like 37 a week, if that. I get that all sites have their lifespans, but I still miss this place being a regular hive of activity.

It is probably because Apple is teh doomed!

But seriously, I wonder if the tech is just so commonplace that some of the magic is lost. We don’t feel the sense of urgency to talk about it anymore.

I'd like to see the subtitle changed. I don't look at it often, but it is time for it to change even if only to Jack's tribute again.

Thankfully I've deleted my Facebook, Instagram and other social media accounts. I might still have a Twitter account though I've not signed into it and disconnected my iOS devices from it. This place is still where I would rather get my connection.

I was wondering where you had gotten to.

My Facebook had been “deactivated” for a few years before I finally just out and deleted it about 2 years ago. I still regularly use Twitter and Instagram and find that is usually enough, but the regular conversations about Apple just haven’t moved somewhere else fro me from here.

I seriously can't see the header.

HTML code:

Code:
<!-- Begin Masthead and Navigation Block --> <div id="Masthead"> <div id="Logo"> <a id="LogoLink" href="//www.applenova.com/"></a> <h1>AppleNova Forums</h1> <h2></h2> </div> <div id="Speedholes"> <a id="SpeedholeLink" href="//www.applenova.com/tribute.html"></a> </div> </div>
Code:
#Masthead { position: relative; height: 60px; width: 100%; bottom: 0px; background: #1f2933 url(//applenova.com/images/bg.masthead-2.0.png) left no-repeat; }

The link to the PNG file doesn't work, is that directory working for anyone else?

That direct link is: https://applenova.com/images/bg.masthead-2.0.png

Waitaminute!

I think we did some sort of DNS adjustment a million years ago where we pointed straight at an IP address using Terminal or something just to get to the website when something was off.... anybody remember that?

Because none of my browsers on my lappy will pull that header graphics.

Intriguing.

DUDE!!!

I am a MONSTER!!!

A million years ago you guys DID INDEED have me to edit my localhosts file.

I learned how to go back in there and look, and there it was - a straight IP to AppleNova.

So I went in and deleted it, saved it, and flushed the cache.

Voila! I can now see the header.

So satisfied at my tiny, tiny, tiny accomplishment.

For what it is worth, put my 2 bits towards changing the header as well.
