    Also, *slaps self in the face with a fish*.

    I'm not crazy about the colours cause I've never liked taupe, but I'm sure I'll learn to ignore it.

    EDIT: Also, is it possible to have a return of the "Skip to first unread post"?

    You have to go to Gaycomputers store and buy colored monitor ink.

    It seems to be working again.

    Well, seemed to be working in other threads/posts. Not this one.

    Edit 2:
    post deletion works here:
    must be different permissions.

    Good Enough :)

    It's first and foremost functional, which is really what matters most.

    I developed and maintained an electronic medical record program for a large practice for several years. Users got a stable working version of the program while I used a development version I could bug fix and continually tweak. Every few weeks or months I'd compile the development version and lay it on the users, usually with some announcements about new features and changes. But once in a while I'd hit a point of no return. I might find a serious security issue I hadn't noticed before, or there would be so many changes between the two versions that I couldn't quickly add a necessary small addition to both. Then I'd have to do a sudden update without warning and everyone would hate me. But they'd get over it.

    I found that when I was programming, I'd be totally in my head. It took some time to get all the if-thens up and running inside my thoughts. So breaking concentration hurt, almost. Casual interruptions would annoy the fuck out of me.

    Working by myself, there's no way I could have solved the problems I did solve through consensus. Programming and talking about programming is much like playing tennis and talking about tennis. Totally different activities impossible to do simultaneously. Yes, I tried my best to solicit input and feedback. But I couldn't limit myself by the need for general agreement. Not enough hours in the day.

    tl;dr: <3 Sue.

    If users could think they'd be coders.

    Unfortunately, coders who can think get paid better money not to code.

    The who end up writing the bulk of the stuff that people actually use,
    tend to be either not "smart" enough to get kicked upstairs into management
    or masochists with some kind of fetish for good practice and good design.

    Yeah, that's true too, for commercial software.

    Not so much for 'labour of love' type projects.

    Where's all the bitching and whining about the forums being reordered again? With how much there usually is, I find it hard to believe no-one's making retarded complaints about it this time..
  18. AnonLover Member

    It's the sanitarium ward color scheme. It has a numbing effect.

    I've been seeing a lot of broken image thumbnails today, i thought at first something was being worked on.

    But now I noticed, a right-click + reload seemingly pops up the pic everytime.

    Not saying this is a bug, just mentioning it in case others are seeing the same thing and its not just my interwebs short circuiting.

    No vids loading in this forum since upgrade.

    Right clicking says "movie not loaded..." and underneath has link to flashplayer site. No problems with vids on any other sites.
    Otherwise, very much like upgrade. Soothing to an old lady's eyeballs.

    Yeah, because the flesh color of the previous version was so edgy. :p

    I taped a pink filter onto my screen which I flip over when I'm on WWP. Makes WWP more readable than looking at vomit green.

  33. exOT8Michael Member

    Wow awesome, use your screen to fax it to me. ;-P

    Can the forced default italics in quote boxes be removed. I hate it.
    It spoils formatting, especially when quoting dox, where layout is important. We had this italic quote thing on the old vbulletin and I hated it then. It was gone when we first went to Xenforo and now it's back. Raegwhine.

    Imperfect workaround.
