Actually, I know one of the stars of the film, the blue faced parrot. He belonged to a friend who lives overlooking North Beach and trhe Parrots would often come to the trees outside his house. One day his parrot escaped and months later he saw the parrots and noticed his bird was with them. There are actually two flocks, the (mostly) Red-faced Parrots of the Presidio and North Beach, and a flock of White-winged Parrakeets in the Mission. Ya Gotta Love SF, even when you now live in Oakland.

Yeah, I knew I could refresh manually.

So, what happened to the Who's On button?

All for now.

Haven't gotten that far yet.  In the meantime you can still access Who's Online by clicking the link under "Users Online" at the bottom of the forum index page.

One problem, that must wait for a software revision, is with email notifications.  The notification only gives a partial url instead of a full link back to the new topic or new reply posted.

This problem has been fixed.

I like the upgrades. Well done. I even threw in some Japanese kanji in my reply to Pan and it came through on the post (using Unicode to view). I guess Weenie really is international.

Was wondering what the heck that was -- didn't look finnish to me!  ;)

I do seem to like the other (old) font better, it's "darker" somehow. But I do agree that the Forum is faster.

Some of the font size (ie. WeenieCampbell.com > The Unwound Third > Site Anouncements etc.) is now blury and almost too small to read. And I just got new glasses today!

Better?

John,

   Has the "Unread Posts" link under the "Forum" entry on the Main Menu been deleted on purpose?  I normally use Firefox 1.5, and don't see it, even after closing and reopening my browser.  Internet Explorer 6.0.2800 doesn't show it for me either.

Hi David,

Well, not on purpose - but as a result of upgrading the forum and the bridge, whcih links the forum to our content manager (more than you wanted to know).  I'll add them back in -- and in fact, I think I'll add the "Who's On" as a link under the Forum menu item as well.

Good eye - keep me honest!  ;)

John:

Anything "Quoted: (in a quote box) in a post is in a font too small to read. It's dark enough, just too fine.

Sorry to be a PITA.

Not a problem -- I'm used to it.  :P

Also, not a problem to make quoted text larger -- a good idea in fact.

you don't get the warning that someone (namely you) has posted to the thread.

That used to bug me.  :D

Just an FYI,

I've upgraded the bridge that ties the Joomla (our content manager) and SMF (our forum software) together.  So keep your eye out for problems.

I've aslo modified a template to try and prevent the forum from pushing wider than your computer screen.  This display problem would happen on the Forum Index page only -- so let me know if you see this again.

I've temporarily broken the Member Map  :D -- but I'll get it back soon.

Cheers,
slack
