I've obtained and reactivated subsilver2 which is a theme much like the original board.

I've looked into blackberry/mobile themes and have found some code to automatically switch but no good themes. Let me know if you find a good theme and I will install it.

Ahhhh! The days of the YELLOW board!

How I miss that era of lawlessness and mayhem on the Ellison Board, where consciousless insults ruled the day and a draw of the tongue would leave only one alive to tell about it! Where egos ran free to trample civility and a good fight, with a bottle of whisky, was ALWAYS worth its weight in gold!

Shit, yeah...I miss them days!

I miss the fly.

Also, I see we've all shifted to the right -- our avatars, that is. How's that feel, Frank? :twisted:

Rick, I take it that wasn't you in the Pav?

Did that thing really post Harlan's address? Does he own a gun? Is someone in the witness protection program?

The alternate theme I put up has everything back in its old place if you prefer left-leaning avatars.

Nah. I think things should be shaken up once in a while.

I'm definitely warming up to this new format.

Have we thanked you for putting this whole site together?

If not, thanks!

Rick I have a problem with the new forum and I don't know if it's just me or everybody so this is a question to see if I'm alone.

Everything is ok in the GENERAL index but when I try to reply or post in the POPULAR index it times out and I get a message telling me that it "can't find the server".

Is anybody else having this problem but me?

I don't know why it would work for one thread and not the other...

This is just the damnedest thing.

I can post replies or create new topics fine here under the GENERAL side of our forum but any attempt to do so under the POPULAR side ends with a server time out.

Maybe my laptop is pissed off because I haven't seen the new Star Trek movie yet.

Comin' in fine on Safari, too.

Try with a different browser or with security set lower (accepting cookies, etc.).

May just be trying at a bad time. We have a rather large database of posts now and sometimes it gets chugging a little...

Wyatt, did you just call Harlan "drug addled?"

Barber, we need to put Wyatt in protective custody.
