I'm just saying not to be upset if your witty response disappears along with the banned person's post that triggered your response.

The Bathroom Wall thread seems to be glitching, I can't read anything past page 479.  I see that newer posts have been made and I can read them when I post on the thread, but they disappear after and I'm still limited to page 479 (which is unfortunate because the first post is picture of a guy with a pink dick on his forehead and that's NSFW).

I'm using both IE and Firefox on two different machines.

No worries.  :)

I should probably learn to restrain myself in the presence of the Mabus instead of generating more work and stress for the admins by playing the gadfly.

By all means, if I must have posts vanish down the memory hole, any and all responses to the gentleman in question are disposable.

Or at least challenge somebody.  Got to push the envelope, which is why we got impressionism, fauvism, pointalism, cubism, dada, surrealism, post-surrealism, last-tuesday-ism...

I'm not sure about that one, but only because what passes for their manifesto is written in lolcat, and is even harder to parse than your average postmodernist essay on being and nothingness (as opposed to Sartre's work of the same name, which was simply verbose and a bit dull).

I'm personally inclined to see lolcatism as a variation of postpostmodern dadaism on an extra shot of caffeine and too many cute cat pix rather than as an independent style of it's own, as evidenced by the proliferation of other sites in the network.

Any work involving the lolrus and his missing bukkit, on the other hand, is clearly a cry for help cast echoing amidst the spiritually barren slums of the bourgeoisie commonly known as suburbia before being ruthlessly crushed by the banal common kultur that is conformity.

But what the hell do I know about art?   :D

My wife is an artist (graduating with her MFA in May).

She thinks the same about all the modern art movements as me... it's what we refer to as "steaming piles of horse hooey".

Well, is it "steaming piles of horse hooey" al natural or "steaming piles of horse hooey" spray-painted in dayglo purple, and immortalized in resin and kept in an argon filled vault?

There is a difference, ya'no.

As opposed to modern music, which has for the most part, been dumbed down to the aural equivalent of unflavoured gelatin.  Brightly coloured, I grant you.

Wes: there is a not so bad but a bit annoying thing going on with PMs:

When I type a PM and click the "send" button without having entered a title for the message, it prompts me to do so.

Fine so far.

But when I get back to the message-typing page, after entering a title, the "send" button is grayed-out and I actually have to go back to the main message folder (after copying my message so it's not lost) and start the whole process again.

Is this normal?

Has happened to me as well.  i had to go back and redo the entire thing... all four words of it.  I was very sad.

I will see what I can find out about the PM thing, but it may be sometime next week before I get spare time for it.

I decided it was about time to backup the BB again. By backup, I don't mean the relatively simple process of squirreling away a MySQL dump of the database and the BB script files; I mean getting the content out into plain HTML files that can be viewed and indexed by search engines. It's been a while, and it looked like I had a choice of getting my mind wrapped around PHP code I wrote back in 2006 or do something completely different. So I went with rewriting the backup script in Python.

Along the way, I altered my method for getting a filename, so I've busted existing links to previous archives. But I think the new way is less prone to breaking on problem cases, so I'm inclined to keep it. Another thing: I got to thinking that the list of threads wasn't really enough, so I made a file consisting of links to the archive threads plus the first post from each topic. It's a big file now, but check it out.

Utilizing someone else's photographs or artwork without permission is annoying, and continued use after being requested to cease use is excessively annoying.


Reminder: being "annoying" gets you moderated, and being "excessively annoying" will get you banned.

For a site admin, the silence of the commenters could always indicate some more tangible problem, from configuration to DDOS.

I enter name and email address the same as they appear in the old installation but when I type something and click preview I get this message:
