still happens. And I often end up accidentally striking the "hide this topic from now" link instead of the "back to topics list" link. And I hate that everytime it crashes I have to type in my login again.

Facebook's got a pretty decent iPhone app. Different from the site, but pretty solid on the phone. Makes me jones for a D-word version too.

Well. Maybe we iPhone / D-word people should all pitch in for a phone for Peter.

We had discussed a mobile version before but were not sure there was a big demand. Maybe the iPhone is changing that.

Not that I can test it (yet...), but what actions make it crash on the iPhone?

Nothing in particular. If you just go to the D-word site and do nothing it has a tendency to crash. Sometimes even before you get a chance to log in. Sometimes it crashes sooner, sometimes later, but it always crashes if you stay on the site for more than a few minutes.

I assume there have to be some coded operations taking place in the background of the site that cause this, because it can happen while the site is just sitting there, without any user action. Sometimes it becomes VERY slow on basic operations like text entry and then crashes.

Maybe borrow somebody's iPhone and take a look?

I'll do that later this week and see if I can figure out what's going on.

This is not a big deal, but my profile says I joined in 2005, when actually I joined back in 2001. Is there any way to fix that? (Just in case some day there is a special 10-year anniversary party or something)
thanks.

Maybe 2005 was when you first posted on the New Café? You are listed as 2005 there.

Why does it matter anyway? Any member can come to an anniversary party.

Thanks, Ben. That's probably it.

It doesn't matter – just had too much time on my hands that day, I guess ;-}

Doug, Ben

Which of the various topics would be best to post in about 'green' filmmaking? Or might it make sense to have a separate topic? [Perhaps it's there already, but I haven;t found it yet....]

Doug Block

That's a really good question, Andrew. You might want to start out talking about it in the Bar and see if there's enough interest to open a seperate topic.
