Sicura, presta è la mia difesa

Out of concern for the cher public over possible security issues with Java, La Cieca suggests that you hold your Saturday chat here in the comments section of this posting.

Your doyenne is working to update the parterre chat to a more secure, non Java-based platform.

    ok thanks Cieca.

  • Straussmonster says:

    There’s always IRC, but that needs a client, and getting everyone set up with such short notice wouldn’t work. Alas.

  • LittleMasterMiles says:

    Thanks -- I had just posted a suggestion to this effect elsewhere, not having seen this.

  • bassoprofundo says:

    are all chat clients Java based?

    maybe we could find a temporary home for today, other than just posting on the page.

  • Feldmarschallin says:

    well just found it also on the radio…Norddeutscher Rundfunk has it here.

  • Feldmarschallin says:

    Is there anyone who is computer savvy on here who can tell me if I can get these comments live or do I have to refresh every minute to have the latest. In the casa della cieca it was automatic and all comments would come as written for me.

  • Feldmarschallin says:

    Tomorrow I have Götterdämmerung with Stemme again :) .

  • Feldmarschallin says:

    They just announced that Racette is singing. Hope that they are mistaken.

  • Batty Masetto says:

    Well I’m willing to give it a whirl but it does make one miss the cozy speed of La Casa della Cieca, doesn’t it?

    • Feldmarschallin says:

      yes you are right batty…I prefer the other version as well but I am sure our doyenne will have a new solution for us very soon.

    • Straussmonster says:

      It does, doesn’t it? Also, all the wide range that our comments go to. (Along those lines, a neighbor gave me a ton of cuttings for my very own Abraham Darby, we’ll see if it works.)

      • Batty Masetto says:

        Beautiful rose, we like ours a lot

        • bluecabochon says:

          Batty, I hope you both had a fab trip!!

          • Batty Masetto says:

            Well it was wonderful to see some friends and we did get in a few good museum visits. But I also made the acquaintance of norovirus and the dread London Cough that I think you also got to enjoy. So not nearly as much getting around as we’d hoped.

          • bluecabochon says:

            I have no idea where this will land, Batty, but I am sorry to know that you too caught the dreaded bugs and hope that you’re feeling much better by now. It really was incredible how everyone I encountered was ill, which was scary knowing that someone else was always preparing my food and drink.

        • Feldmarschallin says:

          I love roses and have about 10 in my garden..mostly t’s but some climbing ones as well. And also adore dahlias.

          • Straussmonster says:

            Another one of us! I have a climber that’s turning three now, so I have high hopes for her blooming extravagantly this spring; she started as a tiny band.

    • bluecabochon says:

      Better safe than sorry!

      • Batty Masetto says:

        It’s twue. it’s twue. Though Oracle is now claiming that the vulnerability exists in only one version (but who knows whether to believe them?).
