I've been wondering why doesn't the psynews.org link ever change? It's impossible to link to threads from here, having unique links would be good. It's really weird too, never seen it before, except in those flash sites.

errr??

right-click properties, ever heard of it?

 

here's a short tutorial for you:

 

1. right click link

2. click properties

3. copy the "http://.....www.blabla.org...."

4. go berzerk and pull out all your hair while screaming " NO! NOOOOOOO!!!" & wondering why you didn't think of this before....

5. realise you just posted the "most enteraining post of the week", you won a cookie.

6. eat your cookie

Jesus christ, what the hell did I do to you? I'm just saying that this is the first board I've ever seen where you have to manually fetch the link. Every single other board I've used has unique links ABOVE, you know, the rectangle box on the top, where you type in an url. It's just so much easier to copy a link from there.

The one that works fine has the IPB icon and the other has the P(psynews) icon, looks like I'll just need to bookmark the IBP version. Still, that was really weird.

This is just an idea..

 

Could we have a special sobforum in the reviews section for ambient/downtempo releases only? I've noticed there's quite a few ambient lovers on psynews so maybe we could have our very own corner of ambient music reviews? Just a thought..

Psynews is trying to set up us the bomb. Might be infected. It's trying to get me to download a virus software, pop-up and everything.

Definitely a good idea. I think we should include electronica/IDM as well. Alternative electronic.

Sure, man. What you need is a free host site, which there are plenty of. YouSendIt, MegaUpload, Sendspace, etc. Upload the track to that site, copy the link to the upload that the site provides, then post it here as a link using the "Insert Link" button to the right of the smilies. Easy.

It looks like this for me.

It's funny how spyware is labeled as critical risk level, yet a troyan is only a medium security risk.

 

Anywho, I haven't been getting that spyware popup, however I did get some warning popup in opera asking me if i want to continue loading the page by accepting some "license agreement" of a cookie. Dunno what that is about.. but there's defo something going on.

 

Edit: btw psytime, what is that os that you're running?

Don't know if it has been raised, but it annoys me that quote nesting is disabled and I have to do things like this manually.

Or maybe there's a way to turn it on somehow?

I too was getting the automatic redirection to that fake antivirus malware site. However, that has just stopped and now I'm getting the bar at the top of the page asking me to download files to my computer, which I ain't doing!

 

I've added this site to my blocked list (temporarily!) cos some of my stupid friends just allow everything regardless of what it is, despite my best efforts to educate them that there are bad people in the world...

Well spyware might get your cc info, wheras trojans just crash your computer.

It was a ruse in any case; the details weren't really based on anything.

GET RID OF THE FCKIN REDIRECTS AND VIRII/TROJANS.

Then send a mass email to all users and let them know you fixed it.

 

Your box is jinxed and its a complete mystery that no admin has looked into this already. Or maybe they have I dunno. Just fix it. Today fsecure caught one trojan and one virus.
