Link my FB Accounts to TR the boss might see that and I would possibly get fired. :( I can't take that risk what with jobs being the way that they are at the moment. :D Col

Or... is it unofficial? If it's the latter, then it should say so in big letters, that'll bring in the crowds ;) Slap on "unrated" and "controversial" too :D

Soni created it. But the pronounced intention is to eventually take whatever is created there and remake it into a typical FAQ. I have to admit, I didn't follow her instructions. She wanted everything to be nicely listed on one single front page, but I creatively decided to create topical sub-pages.

TobiF has been contributing, but we'd love others to join in. Hey, Palmetto - where are you? The Wiki was your idea, and I haven't seen you in there yet!

He went in after me and created those examples. I emailed him and let him know that the TR community (well, only you at this point, TobiF) is already thinking outside the box! :D

I know for sure I've watched this video. But YouTube still shows 0 (Zero) views.

Thanks for using YouTube for the embedded video. Now I don't have to start over all the time in order to watch the whole video. :) But, check the parameters of the embedding. A thin vertical part to the right of the video window isn't visible.

does run under the ads on the right, but at least we can see Soni.

Ain't me. Could be your machine is experiencing [i]delirium tremens[/i]. This is your weekend, isn't it?

It's minor, but I see it too. I'm running FF 3.6.12. Still, any view of Sonja's smiling face is better than a thousand pumpkin pies. :-)

Oh. I'm going to work a bit tomorrow. Just don't tell anybody. This machine hasn't shown that kind of strange behavior. My previous lappie, though, died from an acute overdose of red wine. (RIP) I moved the HDD to an USB adapter and saved the ram modules, but the value of the rest of the computer was quickly reduced to recycling levels.
