I did the transcripts this morning. I do a new topic each time as I do them and wait until I have finished all contestants before I hit the submit button. Well I did that and for some reason after hitting the submit button it asked me to log back in--so there went the transcripts. Of course I deleted the show when I had finished the transcripts.

Sorry, but I need a fill in for Friday's show.

I would also like to ask for a permanent replacement for me on Fridays. I would certainly be able to be a back up for any day of the week.
Thanks

Kusch

Since I was home I watched it as it aired and afterward went back and deleted it from my DVR so I don't have it.

I'd be happy to take that day and if someone would be willing to take my Wednesdays that would be even better, but I'll do both if no one wants the Wednesday duty.

all I can say is I was counting on youse guys! The show did not air here; football did! I dunno what aired at home in Boston where I'm taping, but I'd give an outside vote for football there, too. Usually they rerun displaced mid-day programs during the overnight, but last time, for the Red Sox victory parade, they didn't; they did air the View in the overnight, though. And this week I wasn't there to schedule in a whole taped overnight, anyway.

Location: I've been everywhere. Really? Not quite really.
Unfortunately this did not air in NY; the day-after-Thanksgiving show never airs here due to football. In the past they stuck one of the least attractive shows (llamas, early crashes) on this date and if that is the case this may be a lost episode since it would not reair during the summer. It would re-air in two-a-day cities as the 'second' show the day after next Thanksgiving.

Perhaps this could be a sticky or part of the forthcoming FAQ: I don't know how long the timeout is but it is not long. If you do not post or browse for "X" minutes you will be logged out and have to log in again. If it is set by the Bored software and we could change it, I would suggest lengthening the allowable idle time.


Advice to other transcribers: I always transcribe onto a txt file (notepad) and save it occasionally. I copy and paste into the posting area. I used to do it on Word, but the GO Bored turned every punctuation mark on Word into a question mark making it hard to read.


Finally I could pitch in now and then for future Wednesday and/or Friday shows.

If you hit the back button on your browser (or Alt Left Arrow), you can then go back to whatever you were typing before you timed out. This happened to me most recently on the QOD. I was almost very grumbly.

Kusch, I'm sorry you had a bad round of it.

I will suggest doing the transcript in a word processor. All of it.

Then bring up the web page, and copy and paste each segment into its own message. That way, if anything goes wrong, you still have the transcript in a file on your desktop or wherever.

I am checking to see if we have Friday's show.

Don't have it, sorry.

Thanks everyone. Sorry I am having to bow out of doing the transcripts. As posted earlier, I will certainly be available to fill in when needed.

One of the things kusch mentioned in this thread was:

There are those of us who can substitute, on occasion, but I don't think anyone has volunteered to permanently take over this night. Any takers?

And permanent or substitute, we need someone to cover today's show (I can substitute, if nobody else can).

I volunteered to take Fridays permanently (starting with today's show). I was hoping someone would take Wednesdays for me, but I can do both if need be.

OK, thanks, ear. You've got Fridays.

So I'll change my question to asking if anyone wants to become the permanent transcriptionist on Wednesdays?

Shade, I think you mentioned a while back that you'd be willing to volunteer. We can send you the shared password, if you're interested.
