deadman,

The site search does, as you put it, suck.

Unfortunately, I doubt that I will have time to do much about it until after my next job transition and relocation later this summer.

Even then, the question is whether I just need to archive the IkonBoard version of the forum and switch over to a different software system, rather than do further hacking on 2002-vintage Perl code.

I didn't mean to sound mean, but yeah. After running a board now, I get the idea. Ack, it's a time-eater.

I get the feeling that this forum goes well beyond the usage the IkonBoard folks envisioned. There was a MySQL field definition with a max value of 32K for counting thread views. The site search facility would likely be adequate on a board where threads are mostly just one or two pages of comments, and not in the tens or hundreds.

Works for me...

Edit to add: I just added a couple of links to the links page so PT seems to be working okay...

After a reboot and clearing of history, I could get to it again. (Seemed rather slow, but I guess starting with a cleared history might do that.) I infer something was mucked up in either my cache or my machine's memory. (Oh well, they do say memory is the second thing to go.)

Forgive me Wes, I am as frequently admitted, computer illiterate. If Ikonboard is inadequate, is there a (simple, time frugal, cheap, easy etc) method to move AtBC away from Ikonboard and onto something that can perhaps cope with its demands a little better?

I'm not asking you do this, I'm really just asking if this is possible as I honestly don't know.

Cheers

P.S. I only came to this thread because I misread it as "Bored Mechanics" and figured Deadman would be hanging out here looking for action. DAMN! The compulsion to mock DM came upon me during a vaguely sensible question. Oh the huge manatee!

Ahem.

Louis is only viciously lashing out at me because *I* know about his dirty little secret:

Lunarpages, the commercial host for the TOA, seems to have gone missing. I see that they recently picked another data center, so hopefully this is a switchover hiccup.

You're just supposed to say that.

The power company in Irving, TX decided this was a fine day to replace a transformer. They warned that voltage spikes could result, so the computers were taken offline to prevent damage during the maintenance. Sorry for the interruption in flow.

When I load a thread on PT for which comments have been closed, a pop-up error box comes up that says "Text area not found". I don't think the lack of a text area should be an error in that case.

Reed will probably fix that once he's finished moving to Houston.

Hopefully.

As everybody should be aware by now, Denyse O‚??Leary is offering a prize for the original code for Dawkins‚?? Weasel program which illustrates cumulative selection [1]. O‚??Leary‚??s offer arises from people challenging Dembski‚??s misrepresentation of the Weasel program, as he has misrepresented it yet again in a trivial non-id paper. To get some much needed perspective, read Joe Felsenstein‚??s excellent article (and its follow-up) and those of Chris Mark Chu Carroll (here and here)


Some weird formatting going on here. Just this one thread.

I have the same version of FF and it seems fine from here.

I just have had a post gone missing on AtBC. I saw my name as last poster on the list, so it must be there somewhere. Now there have been several posts since.

Is there a spam filter that buckets really short messages that are perhaps only links? I forget if I added some text beyond the link.

If so, can we filter the filter to allow such messages if they only reference UD?

ALERT!

Learned Hand says he's locked in a closet with J. Davison and D. Scott! He's obviously desperate.

Hi -

I was recently banned from UD as Learned Hand. (I assume, as a man of erudition, that you were a fan of my work.) Id love to contribute to the ATBC board, but for some reason Im stuck in limbo. Ive sent some emails, but Im still awaiting authorization, and cannot post or contact members whose email addresses are private. Is there a feedback link Im missing somewhere, or some part of the process Ive skipped?

Its hugely frustrating to be barred from UD and ATBC simultaneously! Probably not many people are unwelcome at both boards, after all. I feel as if Im locked in a closet with J. Davison and D. Scott. For the love of god, and the spite of Barry Arrington, please help free me from this indignity!


Please lend Learned Hand a hand!

I wondered about that, that I saw your name but no post. Nor did your post appear in the RSS feed, which doesn't get modified even if something gets deleted or moved. So I think that is a glitch.
