Vacation was nice although I managed to get a little sunburned by the end. A little work, a little swimming, a little football, a little beachbumming, a little reading, some light alcohol abuse, some great food, some good company.


In short, I returned a shadow of my former self.


But thanks for asking... :-)



In other news, I've discovered a means of playing with the forum FAQ file... :-)

Also slightly modified the "Who Is Online" box. It now shows people who have been active IN THE LAST HOUR. If you want to see who is online right now, click the "Who Is Online" title.

I appreciate that this might not be a popular modification, but the deal with the 5 minutes thing is that people would often "disappear" from the online list when they were still on and logged in. My initial thought was to change it to 15 minutes, but...


This is the feedback forum.
You know how to tell me if this modification is unpopular.

Last mod of the day:

you have a new BBCODE tag.

[ you ]

This will display the name of the person reading the text. If you're a guest, you get nothing. Life sucks, doesn't it?

Just a harmless little mod.

eg: [you] is a moron.

Bag, are you sure about &nbsp;? I can't seem to make it work and I can't see how it would have worked beforehand.

Maybe we did something with the word censor?

Dunno if it's much use to you Bag, but I've added a bbcode of "tab" now too..


some text[tab]some more text[tab]

it's not a true ruler-based tab, it's just a bunch of spaces.

Okay, so I've naffed-up the Who Is Online thing a bit.

I'll go back in and change it to something like 10 minutes. But not right now, I'll do it shortly.

I'm tempted to respond to this whole [ you ] deal by making posts that are actually about specific random posters. Those posters will be under the impression that I'm just using a [ you ] tag but that impression will be wrong!

Gobo sucks.

Gobo sucks.

I actually quoted that to see if it was a you tag. I can only assume that there's a certain wavelength you have to think on to beat a puzzle game, and that said wavelength is fundamentally incompatible with everyday living.

You have to know it's a puzzle before you can begin to solve it.

I'm trying to decide if that's ruining my orgasm joke or taking it further.

If you're going to make French jokes, you should do them in French.

Ah, a "little death" reference. Cool.
