    I think I have been here long enough to get mine changed too. Something fitting me or my persona.

    Sorry about the downtime. We are now operating off of a dedicated server, but I'm not happy about the way the host handled the last shutoff - they didn't tell me at all so I was scrambling around trying to figure out what went wrong last night. We may move hosts again soon as I don't think this is a very good setup anymore.

    Anyway, let me know if you have any issues - I will try to be around for the rest of the evening to make sure everything's working.

    I appreciate it, contributions to the cause can be made via Paypal to [email protected] (for e-check or Paypal balance only) or [email protected] for any credit card, foreign currency, or other more complicated transactions.

    Hopefully we can find a better solution - the current server we're on would cost $599/month, and (hopefully) it is severe overkill. They are letting me use it this week until we figure out where we're moving to for the price of the cheaper server we were on, but I only have the week...

    I can change it for you, but I won't change it over and over. PM me.

    Thanks for your service!!!

    On a side note...

    I noticed on another forum (similar to this sites design) that they had the stickies in a different color.

    Is that possible on this site? It made it much easier on the other site to differentiate where the stickies ended and the posting began.

    Thanks

    Hmm, not a bad idea. I'll look into that.

    I've added Google Adsense ads to the forum archive template, and I'm working on integrating them into the regular template so they aren't too annoying. I may do something where they only show up for guests, or we have a nominal membership fee that gets rid of them, or something, depending on what kind of revenue they bring in.

    I'm not allowed to tell you to click on them (please don't randomly click on them, that would look bad and get us/me in trouble) but if you see one that genuinely interests you, don't be shy. They are context sensitive so as the engine learns about what we are talking about here, the ads should get more and more relevant and I can also tune them so we don't get too many stupid ones, hopefully.

    Yeah, I turned it off to see if it would help cut server load. I guess I'll turn it back on now that we're on this one...

    Sometimes the tags get quite puerile.
