mysterious me
« on: August 03, 2007, 04:49:16 PM »

I happened to notice the "who's on line here" item at the bottom of page one the other day, and although I was, indeed, on line here, it didn't mention me.  Curious, I looked again: some unidentified user was listed as on line here but "hidden."  I'm not sure what that means, but I think it's me.  I dunno how I got to be hidden, but I'm breaking out all my old tapes of "The Shadow," just so I'll know  how to behave.  Byron

Hi Mysterious You,

A possible way you got to be hidden is on your Profile.  Click on 'Profile' and look to see if "current status" is checked.  Do the opposite and you should show up again. 

Love those old tapes of the great radio mysteries   :D

Sometimes it takes therapy to put the past behind you. Other times, it takes a 20 gallon trash bag and a couple of cinder blocks.

So Byron, do you know what evil lurks in the hearts of men? (heh-heh-heh-heh).

No, but my Shadow does.  (Actually, I did hit on the solution the other day, and solved the problem.  Strangely enough, it was exactly what several  people have recommended above that solved it.  How it got unsolved is still unresolved, but may not matter, though, not  to scorn a phrase, "who knows what evil lurks in the heart of Windows XL?"

Did that, and right you are.  Now about those old tapes, did you know there are websites that sell (mostly inexpensively) MP3 disks of assorted old radio shows, including mysteries?  (For people my age, it's also entertaining to listen to some of the same series "we" glued our ears to the radio to listen to back in the late thirties.  Stuff like "Little Orphan Annie," for example.  Though to tell the truth, their quality doesn't seem quite as high as it did when I was seven years old.)  Byron

Byron,

A public radio station out of Cincinnati OH called WVXU airs a show called The Golden Age of Radio on week nights at 9 pm (est) and Saturdays at 8 pm. They do streaming audio at www.wvux.org. I checked their schedule and The Shadow's not on it, but you can hear Superman, Inner Sanctum, Suspense, Baby Snooks, Burns & Allen, Fibber McGee & Molly, Jack Benny, and other classic shows.  The Shadow may pop up, because I remember listening to it on WVXU back when you had to listen to the radio on a real radio. 

They probably do podcasts too, so you can enjoy the irony of listening to a recording of a 70 year old radio show on your mp3 player.

I'd love the ability to cloud men's minds.
