    And speaking of that upgrade, you mentioned that the site will be down again on Saturday (8/5). Any notion as to when, exactly? It's not a big deal, of course, but wanting minds inquire to know . . . .

    I'm going to try to do it as late as possible. But I can't know when that will be. I want the impact to be as minimal as possible.
    Excellence is an art won by training and habituation. We do not act rightly because we have virtue or excellence, but rather we have those because we have acted rightly. We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act but a habit.
    - -- Aristotle

    Believe nothing on the faith of traditions, even though they have been held in honor for many generations and in diverse places. Do not believe a thing because many people speak of it. Do not believe on the faith of the sages of the past. Do not believe what you yourself have imagined, persuading yourself that a God inspires you. Believe nothing on the sole authority of your masters and priests. After examination, believe what you yourself have tested and found to be reasonable, and conform your conduct thereto.

    Hey, by that time I should be at the Giants game anyway.

    There is a mutli-quote feature. In the Black it is listed as M-Quote and M-Quote ON when you selected it... In the Old Style and The Blue it is the little box with the quotes and the plus sign..

    There is also a feature that will add a link to the post a quote comes from that will take you to that post....


    We'll figure other ones out as we go along! Enjoy, the board is back up...

    By the Way... It appears as if I will not need to take the site down tomorrow at all... The full upgrade has been installed, as long as it keeps running this smoothly I can see no reason to shut the site down again...

    That's found on page 32 of Famous Last Words, by Ivan Dinosaurpenovich.

    FYI - If you are using a photo of yourself as an avatar and uploading it directly please read this!

    If you want to keep your name private, do not upload a photo with your name as the filename.

    Has anybody noticed the "related links" at the bottom of each thread?...

    Okay, I have fixed it so that more than one debate can happen at a time and eliminated the need for the time limit in one fell swoop. Later, after we have gotten used to the numerical IDs I can allow users to create their own debate threads for themselves and whomever they wish to be allowed into the thread...

    I hope you all enjoy this new feature. IH8 and H2O have agreed to be the first debate tomorrow. I have already created their thread and they may now begin their debate at any time. The debate will continue until the Debators have agreed that the debate has ended, or after one week... Whichever comes first!
