    Default Off Topic Day

    Mine seems closed to comments. Have I been shut down by the NSA?

    LOL. It seems to be broken. Is this a warm shutdown?

    Yes, I wanted to clarify something that may not have sounded quite right, but could not find a place to reply, although it doesn't seem to be closed outright, which would be odd with Sunday still to go.

    Maybe the powers that be thought we needed a time-out for a bit?

    I suspect another "glitch" of some sort. Since the Big Change the whole forum has been modestly "unstable" to say the least.

    Yep, noticed it early this AM when I went to make a suggestion to a poster. I just did a PM to said poster.

    I did think there were a couple threads that could have been moved out to other fora--the broken arm one, for instance.

    Maybe that is why the forum got stuck, trying to move things around and over.
    That is part of the instability forums have to contend with, programs never being 100% clean.
    You don't find bugs in them until they show up, generally by freezing them at the most inopportune times, like on a weekend, just as horses seem to tend to get hurt or sick more in weekends.

    Not that I know what happened, if anything.

    I think the modesty could have been a contributing factor.

    I noticed that someone was banned. Maybe it was time to end it...

    I wanted to figure out how the toothbrush got up her nose. I even tried this morning brushing my teeth. Just can't figure it out....

    Toothbrush up someone's nose?

    How did I miss these events? I just cruised through OT and didn't even notice it was closed!

    I think because that way you could still get replies after OT was closed to new posts.
