Hi! Glad that I am

here. It is going to take me a bit of time, but I think that I can master this. Good work Craven! But how come when I click

on an emoticon, like this Smile I don't get the picture?

The basic problem with that is that the post editor is not WYSIWYG (what

you see is what you get). I want to make it so eventually but that's a long way off and involves some serious code

testing.

I'll soon fix some bugs involving emoticons.

I'll:

Make the animated ones keep moving after

you have clicked on one.

Make the image ALT text say what the emoticon represents.

He he Deb, I bet

you'll love the fact that you can edit your own posts when you see those glaring typos (hey, you pick on mine)! Consider

this a pounce!

guinn1,

Haven't you heard? You are in the Twilight zone of beta testing! In a few days we'll

move and things should be a bit clearer. ;-)

Phoenix,

I don't never wanna be no leader! Waaaaaa! I just wanna

develop. Can I pass the buck and call jespah our esteemed leader?

And I can't say it enough, this site is built on

open source code (and even graphics!) that I gathered and implemented, this is really the work of at least a few hundred

people. I'll even use a host that runs an open source database and coding language (opensource baby!).

The whole

theme of this site is based on free exchange of information. I would never have been able to do this site without the

opensource code that others were nice enough to make. I'll credit them ASAP (until I'm done coding I don't know all the

people I'll need to credit but stay tuned).

Don't know what the

difference is, but during the day today (a weekday, workweek day) this forum was slow as Grandma's Molasses. Now, since

about 6 pm Central, it is lickety-split fast!

Oh yes, I like using the quick reply feature best because it really is

fast fast fast! I like it fast fast fast, lol! (oooooooh, you CAN choose to take that in any way you wish....

LOL)

Um, if I am later on 'embarrassed', I can still edit out that comment?

Enquiring Minds Wanna Know,

You can always edit

your comments (not that you need to, you got it right).

The only caveat I have is that if this is abused (like by

making people look like fools by completely changing the post) a time limit might be established for editing. I don't think

it's too likley we will need it though (I'm actually very very opposed to the idea of that limit).

As to the speed

of the forum it's entirely due to the speed of the server.

When we make the move out of beta testing this will be on

a lightning fast server and the speed will only change if millions use the site at once. The errors you see on this site and

the crawling speed are just host issues.

When we move it will be much faster. I'll also make a low graphics version

of the forums for those who need it to load even faster.

By tomorrow the time issues should make more sense. I'll post an announcement after I tweak

the code. It's high on my priorities list (right after beer and vodka!)

Ya know dear boy

(Craven) heh heh - I HAVE heard several references now to beer at the same time vodka is in your close personal proximity

and even more intimate than "proximity"...


So, Enquiring Minds want to know the proper way to indulge in the two

at one sitting. Surely, not 'mixed'! And, is there nothing IN the vodka, or should I say isn't the vodka IN something?



I learned long ago that I have only one cardinal rule about liquor: I cannot have three 'categories' of an

alcoholic beverage in one day. Two maybe: three is asking for a hangover or worse...

So, as one who long long ago

and in a faraway place was able to consume two quart bottles of Pagan Pink Ripple, enjoy this fleeting experience and let

another drive you home.
