Recent Outage
As the website database grows occasional adjustments become necessary. Tonight an adjustment overwhelmed the server, preventing it from serving website pages and causing a two hour and twenty minute outage. The adjustment completed successfully and (obviously) the site is back online.

Minor Improvement to Quoting
A simple quote from a message is often done like this:
[qs]
...quoted text...
[/qs]
And is rendered like this:
...quoted text...
You can also include a name:
[qs=Theodoric]
Facts don't lie or have an agenda. Facts are just facts
[/qs]
Which is rendered like this:
Theodoric writes:
Facts don't lie or have an agenda. Facts are just facts
But what many probably don't know is that you can use the message number in place of the name like this:
[qs=36]
Facts don't lie or have an agenda. Facts are just facts
[/qs]
Which is rendered like this and includes a link to the message:
Theodoric writes in Message 36:
Facts don't lie or have an agenda. Facts are just facts
A newly added feature is the ability to link to messages in other threads by using the message ID, which is the integer in a faint gray font near the top of every message. The message ID is preceded by the text "mid:":
[qs=mid:918564]
Facts don't lie or have an agenda. Facts are just facts
[/qs]
Which is rendered like this and includes a link to the message:
Tanypteryx writes in Message 879 of thread 2024 US Presidential Election:
So, I wonder if there is any brain material left, or are the worms in full control now?
