Oh yea, and I'd love to know what Frans had to do to make them still do so!

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.

Just wanted to say that and hello to anyone who can remember back that far!

Wow, this place is still here. My board code still works. 10 year old Perl code for the win!

Seriously though, cool.

Yes, the ability to edit your own posts is back.

And this board has nothing to do with the normal Chatbear service, v1 or v2. It's an off-shoot of the code from the 1.4 days (hence v1.4.0-blue) and doesn't follow the normal Chatbear upgrade cycle. Internally it's very different from how Chatbear works since it had to fit into Blue's existing user database and because I've moved the actual Chatbear along so much since then.

There's no mention of a "Shannon Ledbetter" having starred in any films according to the IMDB and certainly not Tomorrow Never Dies.

Your spam solution is POPfile...

As for the password thing, yea, the default is a weird combination of stuff, so those people did change it.

No, the falls themselves were still flowing. But after travelling just a couple of meters beyond where they hit the river, they were frozen solid. Really bizarre sight. Going behind the falls, you couldn't look through because that was completely frozen too.

If you went up the top and looked at the water just before it went over, it was full of large ice blocks.

I've never been so cold in my life.

Niagra Falls is fantastic, I took a trip there when I was over in Toronto on business at the start of the year. Looked really great all frozen.

Of course, it was -32 degrees C when I was there, but I imagine it'll be a bit warmer than that now.

I had to delete some comments to get things going again, that would throw some topics off slightly.

If these bills were true, and were passed, it would be illegally to buy anything online because your credit card would be encrypted and therefore hidden from the service provider.

7. Re: Google Toolbar Mar 13, 2003, 13:15  Bagpuss 
 
Type the word you want to check into the Google toolbar. Then, when Google comes up, look at the blue bar at the top of the page where it says "Searched the web for" and then what you typed in. If it's underlined, it's spelt correctly (and has a link to dictionary.com for the meaning), if it's not underlined, it's spelt wrong and more than likely Google has told you the right way to spell it underneath "did you mean...".

I do that all the time.
