It is hard to see so many friends having health issues with them selves and their families. I hazza philosophical about the Cheez. As long as we can message each other and manage even simple lols, I'll stick it out, after all I'm only here during work. No net at home. Once again the fires were not close to me but the smoke and ash were pretty bad this last time around. And, it actually does get over 100 degrees here fairly often, with high humidity as well, YUCK!

Ohai, still not sure what will happen. Our storage building is on the market right now. Really doubt I'll end up in Texas, though...Did live in the high desert for a while back in the '70's. As long as it's dry heat, I can stand it fairly well. Am trying to get rid of this lively summer cold I caught.

(your messages, #s 3 & 4: By Emerald63 on Aug 3, 2016 at 5:06 PM Scrolling through my Dashboard and saw your reference to piZap.com COOL! I'm guessing there are others, too. Thanks for the info!! ***** By Emerald63 on Aug 3, 2016 at 5:09 PM Damn, knew I forgot something... And sorry for so many messages... Have you noticed the "send in a FAIL" option is still available at the builder? Have you submitted any of your ICHC FAIL LOLs there? Might get some new on-staff eyes to see them, hehehe. >:D )

(your messages, #2: By Emerald63 on Aug 3, 2016 at 4:25 PM Here's the reply I got on July 28 from Contact Us... ++ Thanks for your note and our apologies for you not having access to the builder tools. Regrettably we had to discontinue the previous "advanced" builders but we still have functioning builders, accessible here: http://www.cheezburger.com/submit (use the ones that are bold faced text). + We will bring new builders back to the site soon, but don't have a definitive date yet. + Thanks for being a Cheezburger re99% ader and continue to send feedback. We really appreciate the input. ++ Simply put, I don't believe them. ++ From what I saw on your info LOLs, they say that spammers, robots, hackers, whomever, have tried to take over the builders. Seems to me, 1 of 3 things is happening. 1) Such folk have finally developed ways to get into the programming after years of trying and the new Cheez Overlords were not able to rewrite the code to keep them out. 2) The Overlords didn't want to be bothered to rewrite the code. 3) They'd been paying others to do the security and they didn't feel like paying them anymore. The last one doesn't even require the hacking to be recent. For all we know hackers have *always* been able to get in, but previously there was a willingness to protect the site, either in-house or by contract. Something similar happened with the different iterations of the comments section, too, though that started when Ben and Emily were still around. ++ Have you noticed the new I Can Has items on the drop down menu? The ones simply labeled "Dogs" and "Cats"? 99% of the Cats items are retreads from imgur. The Dogs are from various other sites, but still retreads. As I told Booboo, that looks ominously like the start of turning Cheez into another reddit type site. ++ You probably know I'm not a Christian, but The Man had some very wise thoughts. One of His wisest rings through my head more and more frequently as time passes - "The love of money is the root of all evil." Note, it's not the money per se, it's the *love* of money. And how that "love" by some crushes so many of the rest of us...)

(Your messages, #1: By Emerald63 on Aug 3, 2016 at 4:06 PM Oh, cua... Please, PLEASE don't feel bad about your keeping us updated! We all love Sylvia so much and you were willing to keep all of us in the know, something we *really* need... Of course as much as we need that, Bryan needs some level of sanity right now. I'm really glad he was able to ask for what *he* needed, instead of just letting it get so bad that he did just shut off with no warning. You did what you did (and still will at times, I'm sure) with the best of intentions and with much, much love in your heart. IMO what Bryan needs on his end, IRL, is a spokesperson, someone he can talk to face to face *once* every couple of days who will then do the updates to various groups Sylvia has been involved with (which I'm sure is a lot more than just Cheez). I desperately hope within a few days Bryan will feel up to working with whomever is able to set up a contribution site for her. That right there - money coming *in* - should ease a bit of his stress. Again... you were/are doing a good thing. No one should ever be expected to be a mind reader. Until Bryan said what he said, you simply didn't know the updates were difficult for him. Now you do and that's that. ++ As for my message to Booboo... On July 26 I sent this email: Hellooo? Anyone home??? + Is there ANY plan to fix the LOLbuilders that no longer work? + A lot of bad things are happening in my life right now and I am hoping and praying that the troubles at ICHC aren't going to permanently become one of them. I just have to hope (beyond hope?) that whomever bought your site isn't going to just let it rot away... or worse... slowly kill it off on purpose. (And no, killing it off quickly would not be better.) + I checked the blog, but of course there's been nothing new there since May. Last September you promised us our old comments would be available "soon." That never happened. + So how about the builders? Will we EVER get them back??? Or is this another stab in the heart? Are we the next sacrifice Ruthless Business makes for a fast buck? 'Cause we're feeling like we've been doused in gasoline and you guys are holding a lit match. + Is there any chance someone on your end can PLEASE be a decent human being by helping out those of us who have been loyal to this site for years and return it to the pleasant - aka functional - place it used to be? + If anyone is listening... thanks. ++ Their reply in my next message.)

Nuts, I thought I sent this, it refers to the first two messages: Thanks. Bryan did add this http://cheezburger.com/8966876672 Chris10a made a "shelf" (Collection) for Sylvia related lols. As for the site, I don't know what to think anymore, and I don't know what we'll do without it.

(Archiving time; you wrote: By Emerald63 on Aug 1, 2016 at 7:39 PM Thank you for another update on Sylvia. I hadn't realized at least some of her recent condition was due to meds. I hope there is at least a little balance for her being with loved ones compared to how much pain she is in. People can have such an intense will to do whatever is necessary to remain with their loved ones, and Sylvia's will has always been as intense as it comes. I'm also grateful that these days many doctors say "Screw potential for addiction! Ease the pain, dammit!!" (My mom had to fight that battle.) ++ I'll be looking for the GoFundMe update. And hey... I'm thinking of you a lot, too. (((Hugs)))
By catsuberalles on Aug 1, 2016 at 8:49 PM
You're welcome. She's on the "high meds, pain managed" end of the spectrum, and she wants to dial back to be awake more. Kelly pusskitty is setting up the fundraiser, wants more info from Bryan first. Am "efforting." Thank you for that, couldn't do it without everone's support. *** Did I ED your message to boo correctly? "They aren't going to fix the builders, but will get something new"?? WT_ does that mean? Oh joy. No rollback of CAPTCHA, no Builders. Sometimes I wonder why I bothered.
