Say Aloha...If You Like

March 27th, 2008
By

Howzit! Welcome to the new site! Since this will be the inaugural post, I wanted to call out all the Kwonics/Lanceformers and play a little game. Ok, I like see how much people are out there reading (and enjoying, I hope) this blog.

So no be lazy and just post "Hi" - Das' all. No need reply one novel, no need talk story (unless you like). Let's try make a record of how much "Hi's" will be posted.

All it takes is seven seconds. Click in the "Post Comment" box, press the keys "H" den "I", den "Submit Comment". Pau.

So all lurkers Unite and let's shoot for at least 50 comments...if there are even that much people reading.

SHOUT OUT: By the time most people read this, Washington State will be well into their game. Let's all send our aloha and support for Hawaii's own Derrick Low as he leads Wazzu against top seeded North Carolina. GO COUGS!

  2. First:

    Oh, and "Hi" too.

    Eh, gotta do math just to post a comment? What if no mo' abacus?


  3. King Katonk:

    Braddah Lance,
    "H" den "I" equals "HI." Rats, that took 8 seconds.
    Anyway, pretty generic site. How come they don't update the photos?

    C'mon fellow Kwonics/Lanceformers let's reach the beeg Five-0.


  4. J.P.K.:

    hi

    how's the math to keep the spammers out. better that than random numbers and letters jumbled up that you can barely see. and how come the font is so small?


  5. hi hi:

    Hi!


  6. Lurker:

  15. 808bk:

    They move your blog up the list, but it's the only one that don't work. You gotta get here through the list on everybody elses site. Hope they fix it soon. Or is it just me?


  16. TChahng [대장입니다]:

    안녕하십니까.

    조은 밤에 되습니다.


  17. 9th Island Cuz:

    HI !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


  18. hemajang:

    Hi.

    okay, okay, I get it...you have a new required field (the math major addition), and I was wondering why my comments did not go through. The type is way too small and too many clicks to get here. WWD? Is dis new and improved? Bring back the Rainbows!, oh sorry, I mean bring back the old way.


  19. GA Bows:

    "It's Aloha Friday, no work til Monday!"

    And, Hi =)


  20. Braddah Lance:

    Howzit Everybody! See, if nevah broke...now stay broke. And fo' real, how come only mine's stay all hamajang! Wassap Wit Dat?! I can even barely read my reply right now.

    I've emailed the techies about the link problem so hopefully that'll be fixed today and font thing they are aware of too. The math thing I kept wondering what the heck is everyone talking about, 'den I checked it out from a friends computer and aiyah! Good ting I stay in Finance yeah?

    And I guess I did move up on the "list"...only gotta scroll halfway down now. ;p

    Mahalos to all who posted "Wassap"...all twelve of you. So sad......I like cry.

    I guess I gotta cheer myself up with today's entry. Chee-hoo!


  21. Braddah Lance:

    You know what guys and gals? I tink I'll hold off on today's entry till the kinks get kinked out. I've emailed the tech guys about everyone's concern as well as a couple other things.

    If you're one of the few who were even able to find the WWD blog...Congratulations! And thanks for being so persistent about it too! It is a little difficult...see, no one likes people in finance. : (

    Maybe if I no post for awhile we'll hit 50 anyways...................


  22. Lurker:

    Hi! Ditto previous comments.


  23. Makiki:

    Howzit! We need a Kwonics luau. OH and bigger fonts!


  24. Makiki:

    A very promoinent link from the front page would be good too!


  25. MoOgooGuypAN:

    HI.

    Sorry but no can see if I actually wrotw HI or not so I had to comment. Why is the font in the comment box so dang small. Waasup wit dat?


  26. J:

    hi


  27. BananaFish:

    Yeah, the fonts are kinda small.

    One remedy is to hold down the CTRL key, and roll the scroll wheel on your mouse. That should change the font size on your browser.

    It works for Firefox and IE, but I dunno about other browsers.

    oh, and HI again!

    Damn you Robin! Why you always like tease li'dat?! Dat menu always looks ono - wouldn't mind trying out dat HA-waiian Style Chop Steak but alas...leftovers. At least it's a bump up from my ham sandwich.


  31. opso:

    is it just me......or did the site just get faster.

    What Robin.....you taking orders and delivering? ;-)


  32. :):

    Yay for the tip on how to make the font larger! :)


  33. Braddah Lance:

    opso: yeah, it seems like it did. Shot of Red Bull perhaps?

    Makiki Says:

    Howzit! We need a Kwonics luau.

    Why, you volunteering? If there is one, I'll be there.


  34. MoOgooGuypAN:

    BananaFish, you rock!!!! Works like a charm. I do hope this fix it permanently though.


  35. eMH:

    iH


  36. Robin:

    Lance,
    Kudos to Wanda Adams for the Kahai review (she loved the Pot Roast).

    Opso,
    If you have 10+ orders, they allow you to FAX your order in. Strictly takeout and parking is difficult. I drive and two ride shotgun for pickup - you saddle up your own posse ; ) . Only open weekdays 10:30-1:30. BTW, not affliated in any way, just a major foodie when it comes to reasonably priced somewhat 'fancied-up' eats,


  37. Jason:

    Howzit!


  38. 808bk:

    Looks like the site working again. Right on.

    Did you have to buy all them techie guys lunch or something?


  39. Braddah Lance:

    Nah, I told them the Kwonics was getting restless and you know once locals gotta throw down, it ain't gonna be pretty.

    Also found out from Braddah Rodney (Midlife Crisis blogger) why the site was so hamajang - the chat session this morning with (forgot who already - must be approaching that midlife thing) was manipulating all the bandwith...in other words, was choke crowded.


  40. munch:

    eh so small da font!!!!!

    Hi :-D


  41. Goose:

    w00t!!

    Howzit!!


  42. snow:

    hope i got my "sum" right this time (hee... it was a typo... reeeeally!!).. last time, my comments were erased... no can, li' dat!

    anyway, lance, glad to see that your blog is "open to the public" again... i was about to give up for today, but decided to give it the ole' kwonic try... and here i am!

    dang, robin... every time you post a menu, i don't want to eat my "home lunch!" (that sounds so elementary school... !) i'm going to have to figure out where kahai street is now... ?!

    have a nice weekend, everyone!


  43. De:

    I'm one day late but Hi. I don't like this new site. I rather read the first comments than read backwards (FIFO for accounting geeks). In the previous site, I liked the fact you can see the blog topics.


  44. Rodney:

    Mahalos fo da plug fo Midlife Crisis
    ! (Jus helping you fo hit 50)

    Eh, I neva see Largo here. Oh, das right, he's me :wink:


  45. Cocnut Willy:

    Hi!
    Frustrating.
    First. I couldn't find your post. Then I saw the Hoops Talk link and got here.
    Then the "Security" said my sum was wrong. Eh, i can add!
    Had to back track and re-type my post.

    Finally, back home. I tired already.


  46. no can believe:

    Hi


  47. 808bk:

    I like that the posts are numbered now.

    Maybe if you keep NOT putting up new topics we can hit 1000....:p


  48. 808bk:

    btw what happened to all the old topics from 3/13 through yesterday?


  49. Braddah Lance:

    CW: I feel ya dog! All I can say is...welcome to da club! This morning was waaaaay worse. Even I couldn't find me.....Wassap Wit Dat?

    Like I said earlier, it is definetly a WWD conspiracy trying to disband da Kwonics. jk. It's just that out of every single "Featured" blogger only mines was all pupule.

    808bk: Ho wow lau lau! 1000? So shame already, couldn't even make 30. :( I gotta give props to some of da "Lurkers" though cause besides "da regulars", some managed to come out of da Koolau's and at least say 'Howzit'. Au' right!!

    Good thing I wen check 'um first - I was about fo' say yet another WWD conspiracy about the old topics but the link only stay on the main bloggers page of whoevahs blogging. Gef 'em? So WWD 'prior blogs' link stay on the page with the past few days blogs (without comments dropdown) then when you click a specific blog - poof. No mo'.

    Stay good eh? Just like Scooby-Doo, I wen figure 'em out. Anyone get one Scooby snack...from Kahai Street?


  50. Mr Lurker:

    More weirdness about this site:

    When you start adding comments, it shows them in order 1,2,3 ...
    When you get more than 10 comments, it starts showing comments in reverse 11,10,9 ...
    If you click on the "Show All" link, it goes back to the original order 1,2,3 ...

    Whoeva wen design this site need one slap on da head.

    Eh, I neva know you wuz one "Lifestyle". At least you stay listed in the middle now next to that bolohead guy.


  51. Robin:

    Snow and all,

    Here is the link to Wanda Adams review of Kahai St.Kitchen. The article also has the link to their website.
    P.S. I know my posting the specials menu take up a lot of space and make some of you drool, so just a note that they update um every weekday on their website. Have a good weekend.

  52. Braddah Lance:

    Mr Lurker: See what happens when you guys come hiking out of the Koolau's? You right on! Wea's dat damn Scooby snack?! But I nevah notice cause usually I can count da numba of comments on my hands and toes. ;)

    ...At least you stay listed in the middle now next to that bolohead guy.

    I nevah noticed that...but he make me look good now yeah? Den' I get SOS'd into reality cause Cat is diagonally above me and "he" makes her look waaay mo' bettah than me...no can win.


  53. 808bk:

    ... but the link only stay on the main bloggers page of whoevahs blogging. Gef ‘em? So WWD ‘prior blogs’ link stay on the page with the past few days blogs (without comments dropdown) then when you click a specific blog - poof. No mo’.

    Congrats on the 50 (even if took 2 days)


  54. Braddah Lance:

    808bk: You know da link on the right hand side in da colored box....ah, nevahmind.

    Congrats on the 50 (even if took 2 days)

    Maaahalos! But no can take credit cause we nevah really hit 'em. Shmall kine no fair wen like 20 of the 54 posts came from me eh? ;) Plus I kinda wanted to see 50 "Hi's" from 50 different Lanceformers. I know I was asking much but a fella gotta try right?

    I going count 'em at home ;p


  55. 808bk:

    Gef um. Only on the main page get da part that say
    Earlier blog entries and comments
    blogs.honoluluadvertiser.com


  56. opso:

    They gotta put back da 3 or 4 previous topics and the dates under each blogger on the main page....like da old site.

    Tired you know.....gotta click hea, click dea just fo see if get new posts or juicy kine topics on all the blogs.
    No can just scan the main blog page one time like before. Ho da hard work.


  57. DaBomb:

    Lance,

    That was a weird Blog Topic....I thought it was some type of thing to say "FAREWELL" to ALOHA Airlines....like "ALOHA, Aloha"....but it turns out to be a totally different topic.
