So why don't you guys tell us what's going on?
Let's create our own buzz-box! TMF doesn't seem to be in any hurry to fix theirs!
Leave comments or a link here to indicate where you just commented!
Hey, if you're addicted to interacting with other investors on this site, this is the only way you're going to do it tonight...assuming tonight's like the last 2 or 3 nights.
How I tried to alleviate the boredom the first night of this:
Oh..there are comments on that linked blog from the last 2 nights of this nightly buzz-box blackout.
You can use this blog as a sort of impromptu buzz-box...
Or you can do what I'm likely to do...
I'm gonna go read.
Uh...MF? You know what this is sorta like?
Having this go on for 3 or 4 days and never mentioning it is sorta like farting in a crowded elevator then being the only one standing there acting like nothing's wrong.
Im confused truth. You just farted?
The buzz-box's been down every night for the last 3 days or so if not more. Just wondering why MF doesn't tell us anything about why.
oh I love the buzz box. Even though its flooded with port's fund trades and alstrys histrionics
Yeah, without the buzz-box this place isn't much fun...
Hence the idea of using this blog as a sort of homemade buzz-box.
Me, I have to get up at 3:45 AM, so I might not stay up any longer.
I'm with you. They're going to start losing people if they don't get that buzz box fixed permanently. This is unprofessional and silly. fool on.
Today I feel like pulling completely out of the markets (but I won't).
Truth, your never alone...:)
Hey, here we go again, and it's only 2PM! 2PM and no buzz box!
Be nice to know what's going on, wouldn't it?
First, you need to get some sleep instead of staying up all night playing with the "BUZZ BOX".
Secondly, are you sure it is the "BUZZ BOX" and not your browser.
I'm not having any problems with it.
I used to have problems with it sometimes when I used FireFox, but since I started using %&*#8, it has been working fine.
Are you having fun watching all the "gyrations" in the market, while sitting back and counting your dividends?
I am going to go and take a nap. I got up too early this morning.
Thanks, teacherman! I'll try explorer!
Strange. Teacherman says he's having no problem with the buzz box...but I know I'm not the only one that is, because dumberthanafool is having problems with it, too. I'm on explorer now...still no buzz box. There's a buzz box, but the last thing showing is portefueille's "fund trades" 4 hours ago.
portefeuille's fund trades
Oh - BTW - the market is a treasure trove of opportunity. Hope it keeps on doing exactly what it's been doing.
I see what you mean. I've been reduced to checking my own activity to see if there have been responses.
BTW all I seem to get out of this market is grayer hair.
I don't get it. If it's working for Teacherman, why is it not working for me...for dumberthanafool...and for you?
It's the International Bankers Conspiracy?
I don't think it's our browser.
I'm on Firefox, You're on Explorer.
Maybe it has something to do with the interface between MF & Daily Finance/AOL? A lot of MF articles are showing up attributed to Daily Finance.But I'm no tech wiz.
No, I went back to Firefox. I had the same problem on Explorer, so I installed the newest version of Firefox and now I'm using it. Still the same.
If you have to be up at quarter of 4 tomorrow, I'll just sign off now. Good Night & God Bless.
Yep. Time for me to hit the sack.
The Buzz Box hasn't changed for me overnight. The clock is running so the comments are now 14 hours old, but nothing's been updated.
Looks like they updated about 8 am. but it just seems like a one-time shot.
It's now 11:07am. Do you know where the latest buzz is?
1:50pm--still no updated buzz. WTF?
Nothing here either wolfman. But it's nice to know that someone else is out there.
Just got off work. How is everyone? Who the heck knows...
I stop in from time to time. Looks like they do an update once or twice a day.
You work Saturday mornings? Well if it's Public Service, thank you for your efforts. As a Fireman's kid, I can remember Dad working odd hours & some holidays.
I'm a restaurant cook. We don't open until 7 but I like to be in by 430 or so. Can't clock in until 530, but getting there early is a present to myself...makes my job a lot easier, and sometimes just plain makes it more possible.
The buzz box updated to include me but not your last. So it was somewhere between 4:41 & 5:02.
Tell me where you cook & I'll see if I can stop in one morning. I'm sure those you serve are grateful for you getting up so early.
Now the clock is off as it's showing my duplicate post (4:40 yesterday) as "9 hours ago". so the clock is roughly 5+ hours off.
You're no doubt at work, (about 6:00 EDT) but the "clock" is running about 3 hours late & the last post was 10 (13) hours ago.
Hi db -
Just checking in. Haven't been looking at the MF home page. Been doing some reading, looking at stock pitches, looking up things on YahooFinance, stuff like that.
If MF doesn't care about their website, I don't either.
Without the buzz box there is no reason whatsoever to come here other than to look at my score and rating once in awhile.
A look at my CAPS page and my pitches will reveal that I often do much of my research elsewhere.
Without the buzz box, MF is dead.
Well, I, at least, enjoy having you around. I read the articles about the stocks on my watch-list & anything you & dumberthanafool write.
Maybe they'll never fix it and the MF commumity will just become a bunch of social "clicks"...I think dumberthan is smarter than just about all the rest of us here. It's quite a compliment to be lumped in with him! Thanks!
I've looked through some of your comments and enjoyed reading them, too.
My mistake Truth. I did not realize what kind of problem you were having with the Buzz Box.
I thought you were talking about clicking on the Buzz Box on your own CAPS page, and having it frozen. That is what it used to do with me when I used FireFox.
Since I rarely if ever use that or the Buzz thing on the home page, I didn't even notice things were running behind.
Hope they get it fixed for you.
I don't know if you're still paying attention but the buzz box is all bolixed up again this morning. Nothing listed for 13(!) hours.
It's like time stopped @ 8:00 A.M., E.S.T.!
