Out of the Blue

I'm feeling that much better since my cold, but it has killed my appetite for most of this week, and it's still not right. I guess that's one way to get one's beach body (yeah right) back for the summer, but it's left me a little weakened. I was hoping to fire up the first steaks on my new grill today, but while that would certainly be a good way to restore some of that lost vigor if I could eat it, I'm worried I'll just end up picking at it, so I think I should just hold off on that.

Super impressed that my code for running these forums is still working and here 11 years later, and with the now ridiculous number of posts they're handling.

Oh yea, and I'd love to know what Frans had to do to make them still do so!
Hehe, it's been a long time since I worked on them, but I don't recall I had to fix a lot of stuff. Most of my work on the board code entailed new functionality.

Just wanted to say that and hello to anyone who can remember back that far!
Sure do, and hello back to you (if you still read this - I don't check the forums on a daily basis anymore, hence the late follow-up).
