    My Chrome was recently updated to version 86.0.4240.111 at work and it looks like I'm personally using Chrome 87.0.4280.66 and I can confirm that those previously mentioned 8 smilies don't work on either version.

    I'm assuming since they work on Firefox and IE/Edge that it's just a "wait until Chrome fixes whatever is broken" type of thing. I don't get why a specific set of 8 don't work but all the others do.

    As I explained a few pages ago, those 8 are hosted on an external server that is ancient and does not support encrypted traffic (HTTPS). Since the boards are served over HTTPS, this creates a security flaw on the boards, because HTTPS only works as intended if all content on the page is served via HTTPS. When you have non-HTTPS content on an HTTPS page, that is known as mixed content. Browsers have been quietly warning of mixed content for years (my Firefox shows a yellow warning triangle over the lock in the address bar), but now Chrome is leading the way in outright blocking the non-HTTPS portion of the content, with other browsers expected to follow suit within a year or two.

    In other words, it's a security feature, not a bug. The only solution is for the JCF server admin to download those 8 smilies and upload them to the JCF server alongside the rest of the smilies, where they (like all of the other smilies) can be served over HTTPS.

    Mods, is there any intention of moving the 8 smilies like @jcgoble3 suggested? I also believe there are also more Star Wars emojis available compared to what we currently have so it would be cool if more were added to the current library as well.

    This might be a problem on my end but I am getting more double posts or even the odd triple post. And no this isn’t caused by the usual pressing post to often. I press post once and I get two duplicates.

    Is this something on my end or something else?

    I can’t watch the Simpsons all day when I go for my 6 hour long walks. Gotta do something to entertain myself.

    Edit: I also just figured it out it’s on my end my router is nearing the end of its life

    Got a word for you... Podcasts. Especially this one: https://www.dancarlin.com/hardcore-history-series/ Three to four hours of informative, educational goodness. I listen to that one and to Planet Money (an economics podcast) on my walks.

    But on the posts front, I'm just messing with you. I think you know that.

    Oh I know. You know how many jokes I make about it myself. It has been a long time since I have listened to podcasts used to a lot back in High School

    When I was in high school, we had just updated from smoke signals to semaphore. So don't talk to me about your new-fangled telegraphy.

    Okay now I am almost certain there was something wrong and it wasn’t on my end. Did the forums stop working for a few hours for anyone else?

    Planet Money is gold. I used to listen to Kai Risdall when I would drive home from work.

    Last night, my entertainment was listening to Orson Welles perform on the radio as The Shadow. On a phonograph.

    It's possible - our host has a message that there was a partial power outage affecting some accounts at our location:
    12/21/20 12:15 pm UTC

    We experienced a partial power outage to a subset of servers in our New Jersey location overnight. While most of the affected systems should have power and connectivity again now, our engineers are working to correct the remainder as soon as possible.

    Thank you for your patience and understanding.

    I wasn't online this morning as I had stuff to do but things were fine when I came on this afternoon UK time.

    I really wish you could actually block people on here and not just "ignore" them.

    I mean what would be the difference. I guess not having that little “you have ignored someone on this page” thing that pops up
