  • FORUM MAINTENENCE ALERT- please read

    Be advised that around 7:30 - 8:00 a.m. CDT tomorrow, 8/15/07 the SDC website & Forum will be offline for around 15 minutes (knock on wood) while we perform some maintenance/repairs on the forum's database.

    Additionally, I have suspended the forum "Subscription" feature. We think that may be a problem contributor as well. I may reinstate Topic Subscriptions if I can be assured that it is not interfering with overall forum operation.

    ALSO, I have archived posts older than one year from today in the "General Discussion" and "Technical" forums. When using the search feature you will now have to make sure the "Archived Posts" box is checked in the search form to go back past a year.

    Hopefully, these actions will help solve some of the recent problems we've been having. (and maybe the post timing thing, but don't count on it )

    Bob,

    How would 7:30-8:00 CDT translate on my computer in Forum time? [}]

        Guido: Forum time, like the space-time continuum, is infinitely variable depending on one's geographical and dimensional location. However, once I get the Flux Capacitor (Ebay, 6 bucks plus S&H) installed in my 49 2R5 and can generate the required 1.21 JigaWatts, I can assure you that every forum post will appear EXACTLY one year ahead of the writing of said post. Bottom line: people will be able to read it even before you think it.

            Might I also suggest a limit on the size of people's avitars..signature photos and comments.
            Some are getting a bit too large (especially the post signature comments)and that's taking up space and memory that could be better used for topics.
            IMHO, photos the size of post cards are too big especially when the poster has several replies to the same thread.

            PS. another fourm I belong to has a set size limit for ID photos that go beneath the poster's name...they come out at about an inch square.

                Bob-Just as I thought, Studebakers are much more suited for time travel than Delorean's.

                        I do like that future forum post feature though. That way I can swear at the future me for always thinking once step ahead of me. [)]
