Message Board Reorganization

Don’t be mad, but… I wanted to reorganize the message board so it wasn’t so chaotic when people first signed in. Unfortunately to do so, I had to delete most of the postings from the past two days. I thought it was better to do it now when it’s still pretty new. Sorry about clobbering all your work.
I’ve set it up so that you have to go to the third layer to create discussions. That’s so that the organization is preserved over time. I think I’ve covered most everything. If there’s a sub-topic you’d like to see added to the main topics, let me know and I’ll put it in there.

Once again, sorry about losing your messages. It won’t happen again. I promise!

  1. Hey! I didn’t even have a chance to post anything and I’m *still* outraged on behalf of the injustice of it all…..
    :^)
    You guys are a lot of fun, I will join Leoville as soon as I can, but my work keeps interferring with my Internet fun…. Plus, the Vice President for Operations just walked by while I typed this and he THINKS I’m actually working!

  2. OMG I lost my essay about why Linux is not ready to be a full time desktop OS for normal people! NOOOOOOOOOOOO! It took me a whole 5 minutes to write that Leo. 5 whole minutes that I won’t get back!

  3. Don’t worry.
    We were mostly just playing with your new toy, anyway.
    We’ll get down to serious business soon.

  4. Thanks Mr Emerick. I can’t seem to replicate the problem. Greymatter is slow about adding comments, but that’s because there are so dang many!
    I’ll keep an eye on it, though.

  5. Leo,
    No problem! Actually, I like the new setup! It is much easier to navigate. I was able to read through everything much faster this morning, than I was yesterday before the update. πŸ˜‰ So, actually, it was a good move on your part, IMHO.

  6. Well, I for one am quite chagrined. *looking up chagrined in the dictionary* Yes, yes, that’s what I am. How dare you? I’m outraged, I’m, I’m . . .
    Actually, if we can do a little recap . . . In the space of just over 72 hours we’ve gone from no board in Leoville, to the initial XMLBoard, to you locating, downloading, installing, configuring, and registering the Discus board software, all the while the denziens of Leoville have nearly instantaneously started using whatever you put up and you’ve been corresponding the whole time as you’ve come up with new ideas, responding to bug reports, e.g. Now people are registering for accounts, showing pics of their dogs, and troubleshooting each others systems. You can calibrate this based on activity, and it seems that it’s passed through several stages already. But, if you calibrate this based on time, basically it’s still just embryonic. Imagine the message board floating in the amniotic sac (uh,oh – what did Aaron slip in my tea?).
    At any rate, if you weren’t so geekily competent (or is that competently geeky?), and people weren’t so eager to participate, the board would still just be a twinkle in your eye. So, you’re absolved for this one. Of course, throwing in a few Hail Marys couldn’t hurt. :o)

  7. Jeannette,
    I’m glad my influence could be of service! If i told you that i spent my day climbing around on poorly painted life sized dinosaurs, having my shirt eaten by a deer a goat and a Llama. Then i got into a wrestling match with a goat over a handful of dog food, after which i bought a dear friend a statue of an elephant eating a watermellon.
    Then we went 16 stories under the earth led by a tour guide who seemed to be having a mental meltdown, at the bottom of the cavern, he stopped and asked if anyone used well water, then he went on and on about how great well water was, and how city water was full of nastyness and “of the devil”
    Not to mention that the poor kid couldnt pronounce one Roman Gods name correctly.
    But after that, we went to eat at Johnny Appleseeds, why? Because the sign gave Johnny the most frightening face I’ve ever seen. hannible lecter crossed with Dashs country cousin Beuford-T. Of course a menu was freed and i expect to upload this beauty in the future.
    But i did learn one thing.
    Llamas are very cool!
    And I need to reinstall B&W on this new box, have to restart, but thats OK since i blew the forst game and became a bad god from a John Carpenter film…..

  8. Well, I guess we did get message boards like the “ask leo” board like I thought there should be….now time to check the “leo’s Divx movies to watch” message board if ther isn’t one already…if there isn’t please people, ask leo to put on up. I am an idea man…..one day I will not be so lazy…I will email him myself! The message board idea could have been mine…but I had to really push it here……and the rest needed it more than me πŸ™‚
    LOL
    it is just as I pictured it would be πŸ™‚
    ahh, come together all the people of Leoville and have a meal in honor of our offical town! Population ???? [what is is again?]

  9. Hey LEO πŸ˜‰
    I watch screen savers alot.. Tech tv and some other strage programs on my dish.
    I am a member to techtv as well and post alot on the forums when I seem to have problems with my built pc [wind os 98 se]. I found your board doing a PGP look up because I want to know more about the Pretty Good Privecy email. ALthough I wanted to use it more for the email set up for my clients. I was able to set it up with only one major problem getting the return email to my sit; would return the user email with pop3 LOL. Oh well I just stop by to say hello. You do keep the SHOW live keep up the good work!
