Oh, now he's going to make some more things and make it about me.

What happened to the Hangman movie game??

;)2
We jettisoned a lot of extra baggage to get the database down to a size that suited GoDaddy, and while we were at it I figured what the hell lets upgrade the forum to the newest version (3.2). Consequently a lot of things were lost.

My mission now is to find versions of those two extensions that will work with 3.2. Hell I dont even think they were even official releases for 3.1. IIRC they were beta and I gave 'em a shot and luckily they worked. I think I know where to go.

Been on the phone all day with Cook County Il gov officials so I could actually use a distraction now. Its like talking to fkn dolphins I swear to God
gotta love cook county... imho, the best way to get things done is over a long lunch and multiple martinis.
I guess my problem is I was trying to communicate with lower-level pencil pushers. They must be miserable in their jobs
Agreed. It would appear they take joy in making everyone else's life miserable to compensate.
I just now remembered one exchange after being transferred 5 or 6 times. Sometimes I can tell it's a different lady, sometimes I can't because they never say anything like, 'Hold please while I transfer you to the planning department' etc. All you get is a gruff 'hold on" and then another person comes on the line. In any event one of these morons says something like 'well what did the other lady tell you before you got to me!?". I told her hell half the time I can't tell when I'm talking to a new person, you all sound alike to me lol. I was absolutely not thinking along racial lines, I was honestly thinking along ######-poor phone etiquette lines. If a person is only told to 'hold' on and then a voice comes back on the line, it is sometimes difficult to know if it's a different person. I could tell however that she bristled up and wanted to make it about race

Sounds like a SNL skit... or maybe I saw that in a Mel Brooks movie... that's why you pay a consultant... they have the backdoor numbers that get things done.

That means that there are some mean spirited people working for Cook county who are looking for any reason to give you a hard time. Show up with a southern accent and you'll get attitude. Show up with a Wisconsin twang, same thing. And at happy hour, they'll brag about it.

And every once in a while you'll run into someone who's actually interested in helping you...
