Good, then it sounds like we ID'd the issue. Now we'll look in to why this happened. My hunch is that this is a side effect of some recent upgrades. We are checking.


Let me know if you run into any other issue.

Wow, the same message I've been trying to post just got flagged again!

I'm going to send it one line at a time in separate messages to see if I can narrow down which line is causing the problem.

I'm hoping to have the engine running again by the end of the month.

Ok, I sent three lines. Or should I say I tried to send three lines. The first one got flagged for moderator approval.

I'm going to break that line in two and see what happens

"Muffler" can also be a synonym for a sound "suppressor," -- commonly improperly called a "silencer" -- for firearms. There is no such thing as a silencer for a firearm, just as a muffler doesn't totally quieten engine noise. Any of these terms might be flagged by a new program with the "bugs" not worked out (with pesticide? ) FWIW

Carry On!

I doubt that's the reason. But it does remind me of the problems we had at work some years ago when the Government morality police started filtering for keywords on Government-owned computers. Worse than any parental controls app presently on the market.

A grease fitting is often called a "nipple"— not to mention the fact that many perfectly legitimate items such as extension cords have a male end and a female end, among other legitimate but suggestive terminology that might have offended a 1950s TV censor but no one thinks twice about today— and when the filter went into effect, suddenly we couldn't connect to our contractors' or suppliers' web pages.

Things eventually got better when they started filtering for context instead of just keywords. But sometimes we still had to specifically ask the IT department to add construction contractor websites to our whitelist so we could conduct electronic business without the censors blocking the sites.

Brad,

This smacks of conspiracy, and I believe I know what it's about. It's those "trailer" people. They don't have mufflers on their trailers, but we do have mufflers. So they're out to get us. I'm sure of it. Don't tell anyone about this until we figure out our next move. Shut off your computer when you're not using it, and keep your curtains drawn. Most importantly, keep your moho well hidden, because they're looking for us. We've got to stick together now more than ever before. Remember, keep this message on the down low.

xxxx

Brad,

Sorry, I meant to send that as a private message. You'll be OK. Stay hidden.

Two in, and one out. Doesn't sound like any ordinary muffler. Please don't tell me it was a "Cherry Bomb".

Nope, just a somewhat expensive stainless muffler...err...silencer....err....suppressor.... no wait, I totally forgot what I was even trying to post

Streamquest, cherry bomb is what I'm really hoping it doesn't sound like!
