This can't be good...



Maybe, that's the reason spence can't see the pics on my website :))

What the heck is "Zhen-Xjell" anyway ?

Google Translate suggests it's:-

Zhen-Xjell  =  Z very-X jell
or
Zhen Xjell  =  Z is very X jell
or
zhen xjell  =  Real jell
or
zhen-xjell  =  Really - bad mood

Capitalisation seem to make a big difference in Chinese :-\

What the heck is "Zhen-Xjell" anyway ?

That goes back to my PHP-Nuke days (generally) and NukeCops (specifically).

I was on the NukeCops dev team, but the Chief (Zhen-Xjell) sold the site to the Italians, and moved on to web security.

The Italian company, that bought them, asked me to stay on and admin the website - which I did, for a year or more.

The language barrier finally got the best of me. They tried to collaborate in English, but it was rough going.

Eventually, I found a guy in Phoenix from (Northern) Italy and I used him to translate messages back n' forth to the boys in Bergamo, but he wasn't technically orientated, so it became too much of a hassle.

Anyway, that's the source of nick. Flash forward to today...

When pin recently got me interested in reddit (at this late date) some %$#! had already registered my nick, so I decided to steal my former Chief's nick - in order to fight with the pre-teen kids on reddit.

Let this be a lesson to you, in case you ever consider selling and abandoning the Peppermint OS website :))

Oh, okay.

It's probably something in your Fx Privacy & Security settings.

I haven't messed with the default settings.

Flipped on the desktop and Voilą!  ...all of your photos appear @VinDSL... I'll test my various extensions on the lappie...

EDIT: my ghostery addon was to blame... despite having the forum whitelisted, guess that doesn't cover your redirect Mr Dizzle... ...
