Last Call: Wild Trucks Can't Be Broken Edition

You can take the truck out of the country, but you can never take the country out of the truck, no matter what country that might be.
Last Call indicates the end of Hooniverse’s broadcast day. It’s meant to be an open forum for anyone and anything. Thread jacking is not only accepted, it’s encouraged.

    Ever since the Hooniverse Critical Excursion I’ve had trouble with new posts not showing up. Today every time I loaded the page it was stuck on Hoonivercinema, until I got to another computer and saw the rest of the day’s posts. I had to look under the Last Call tag to even find this. Not sure if browser based.

      For what it’s worth, I didn’t see that issue back on Firefox 24 or so, and am not seeing it now on Firefox 35. (I am, however, seeing enough instability to consider switching to Chrome again…guess I’ll see how 36 performs and go from there.)

      Having similar issues. I have to hit refresh and immediately stop the reload for Disqus to kick in. This, on Chrome.

      Strange things are afoot with the ol’ duct tape and bailing wire contraption that is IE10 as well. Don’t laugh, I have no choice.

      Same with FF 35 on Windows 8, but…oddly also occasionally with Opera on Android. Refreshing helps in both cases.
      Since I mostly visit on my phone, and images are viewed collapsed, as are threads and posts, I find myself getting off the ‘verse hook quicker lately.

      I may or may not have this problem, hard to tell, I do see new articles, but I don’t know really when they are supposed to appear. I’m thinking more that I do not see this problem though thankfully.
      It used to be that you could go to the previous and next article from the current one by following some links right above the comments. I think Tim had to do something special for that, but it was nice.

        I am not seeing any new articles today. This one–Last Call–is at the top of the front page. You too?

          Same here! No news = good news???

          Same here.

          The only way I can see the new material is by explicitly including today’s date in the URL:

          This is true regardless of whether I’m logged in with Disqus, but then again the same problem occasionally occurred in the pre-Disqus days, too.

          Oh no! There are a number of articles I see newer than that. Just so you know IZM I had to step away from the verse because in the months leading-up to the WP and then discocuss systems I could not read and make comments reliably here.

          1. irishzombieman Avatar

            Figured out just now that if I go to the Verse FB page I can follow links there to today’s articles.
            I hear you. My own involvement here has taken a hit because worked picked up. A lot. Stressing me out even more because I don’t get my minutes here and there with my online buddies.

            Take care IZM – nothing more stressful than stress.
            It just happened to me at home. The last article that shows for me now is Chris’ about switches, yet when I use Harrell’s date in the URL trick I see the last call should be there as well.
            I meant wordpress with WP and for me it was technical reasons with intensedebate that was keeping me away. It got so bad for me that most of the time the comments would not load and then I could not comment.

            Hope things stabilize quick. It’s odd how the bugs come and go for no discernible reason. At least we seem to’ve lost (hopefully forever) the one where it loaded the mobile version of the comments. That one really bothered me more that it should’ve.

          The Hooniverse RSS feed shows 3 articles for today so far (2:30 pm PDT), but the first article I see via the front page is yesterday’s Last Call.

      Hmm, interesting: on my work compu — I mean, uh, the computer I’m using at the moment…running Chrome, I am not seeing any articles later than this one, unless I use the explicit dated URL per mdharrell’s tip. Not sure it’s a browser issue given that others have reported the same trouble on FF 35, though. Also seems unlikely to be OS — home computer is Win7 32-bit, office is Win7 64-bit.

      1. Sjalabais Avatar

        The PC at the place where I earn my living (Ha!) , did show “Who Moved My Damn Switches?” as the newest post, ignoring today’s Last Call even after refreshing. Strangest thing!

    The optimist in me believes the above was intentional…

      Geez, can you imagine unloading that all by hand? Compared to this? Genius.

      1. Sjalabais Avatar

        Bamboo is pretty light stuff, yet I imagine it is not the most truck-loving way to unload all of it.
