When on a motorcyle use the "SEE" method; Search. Evaluate. Execute. Adam: in my opinion you should change the live-cam on a weekly basis, I just love to watch the shadow on the Kone building.

Mitch, that's a strange post.

Happy Birthday Osama!!! Oh thanks, the weather is beautiful.

Hi Mitch! Boy, it sure is good to hear from you! Let me tell you all about gaming. Not this Thursday, but last Thursday, I went over to Dave's for the first time in perhaps 8 months to play board games. It was swell!

We played San Juan, which I simply adore, and Ticket To Ride, which I enjoyed but didn't really grasp the strategy of until it was far too late for me to come in not-last. It was fun!

Is it raining at your house? It's sure raining cats and dogs here! Last time I went outside, I stepped in a poodle!

Hey guys!!! How was gaming? Tell me ALL about it. Your pal, Mitch.

  Comment #2515 by: gB at about 15:59 on March 8, 2007
I fear that I'm far too sleepy and filled with delicious chickens to enjoy gaming this night. Sorry kids.

Oh, Senor Don Gato was a cat.
On a high red roof Don Gato sat.
He was there to read a letter,
(meow, meow, meow)
where the reading light was better,
(meow, meow, meow)
'Twas a love-note for Don Gato!

That's correct -- Energy use skyrockets at night as people fire up their stoves, televisions, computers and fancy electronic grand pianos.

"Ooooo, I'm off to play the gran piano!"

  Comment #2510 by: Mitchell PIlon at about 12:19 on March 8, 2007
I am, Adam!!! I am!!! Although I will be going to work in the dark it will last for a short period of time and is well worth the sunlight shining into my nice apt. much later in the day!! Yay for one month earlier day-light savings (and trust)!!! I read "they" did this to conserve energy - turn your lights on later in the day.

  Comment #2509 by: Dave at about 11:02 on March 8, 2007
Green light for games tonight. I will likely be home by 6:00 if anyone would like to arrive early. Otherwise, we can plan on starting at 7:00 though Josh usually hasn't been arriving until 7:30ish.

  Comment #2508 by: Adam at about 09:06 on March 8, 2007
Grahm -- That sounds like a most interesting show. The tap-dancing part, in particular, piques my interest. I doubt I'll be able to attend, but I'll keep that date in mind for a possible jaunt to the QCA (and Iowa City).

March is quite booked up for me. I have something on my calendar for most every day -- which is going to make the month just fly by.

Is everyone as excited as I am that Daylight Savings Time begins this Sunday? I'm thrilled that it is starting much earlier this year!

There's a band called Tilly and the Wall and they're awesome and they've totally become one of my favorite bands ever. Well, they're playing in Iowa City on Friday, March 30th. I want to go see them. Really a lot.

They're kinda indie-rock, kinda folky, kinda Bright Eyesish, lotsa harmonies and pleasant guitars and cheesy organs and girl singers. Tons of energy and happiness.

And dig this: in lieu of a drummer, they have a tapdancer. It's amazing.

My link goes to their myspace page where you can hear/see them in action.

I think it's like $12 for 4 bands that night. Anybody? Bueller?

Attention Metch:

Throw away IE and use Firefox as your browser. It allows you to have multiple "tabs" open with separate pages on each tab. It's rad and easy. I have my front page and my gmail and the Forum all open automatically when I start my browser.

  Comment #2504 by: Mitchell Pilon at about 12:56 on March 5, 2007
I suggest maybe a subject line for each entry and e-mail link buttons on the home page similar to gb's TDMC page. I think a hybrid combining the 2 pages would be just grand - there are links on gb's page that I like very much and links on this page that I also enjoy.

The refresh time IS a bit short. Several times it's reloaded while I'm trying to read the exciting happenings of 2001.

I'll endeavour to notify Jan, Jason W and other folks of the new Forum.

  Comment #2502 by: Adam (Again) at about 18:16 on March 4, 2007
I just though of something: At the very least, I could certainly add “Jump to Top / Jump to Bottom” items fairly easily. I’ll do that while I’m working on the other problems…..

Since you’ve been reading, I suspect you might have noticed that the page reloads automatically from time to time… This is setup on purpose so if you leave the Open Forum up, it will automatically show the latest posts without you having to refresh your browser. I can set the refresh period to a longer time if it is too short.

  Comment #2501 by: Adam at about 18:13 on March 4, 2007
Yeah, I totally agree regarding the comedy content of some of the threads. I laughed out loud (“LOL”? Anyone? Anyone? Bueller? Bueller? Bueller?) several times while reading through them….

It is a pain, I agree, to scroll up and down when trying to read the posts in order. Trouble is, the software gives you an either/or option (newest first, or oldest first). Perhaps I can setup a secondary link that reads the same file, but uses different settings to display the content. I will look into it.

I will also look into adding next/previous buttons. The guestbook software doesn’t have them, but perhaps I can flex my programming prowess and make it go.

I’m glad people are into it again. Perhaps you can do me a favor – There are a few people who used to post, but I never really had much contact with them, and as such, don’t have email address in which to inform them of The Concern’s return. For instance; JustOnlyJan and the like.


  Comment #2500 by: gB at about 15:49 on March 4, 2007
Oi, Adam!

Thanks for the archived Forum posts! There's some brilliant comedy contained within.

Is there any way you can copy the Older Posts stuff from the bottom up to the top as well? I read from bottom to top to preserve continuity and then have to scroll back down to get to the next page.
Also, is it possible to implement Back and Next buttons on these pages?

  Comment #2499 by: gB at about 17:05 on March 3, 2007
I'm karaokeing tonight! It's my first time doing so in a non-Dave's-living-room capacity. I'm gonna do Summer Wind and That's Life for sure. Other possibilities are Mr. Roboto, Keep Me Hangin' On and of course Debbie Gibson's Foolish Beat.
My dream-list of feasible-but-unlikely-to-be-on-the-menu songs would include Coin-Operated Boy, Commissioning A Symphony In C and anything off Electric Six's first album.
Oh! And I'll totally do Out Here On My Own if they have it.

Hey! I wrote that line. It was supposed to be a play on the obvious answer: It croaks. It didn't translate to the screen very well. But my other joke:
"It's me."
"Prove it."
"You're a dick."
That was awesome!

Mitchell, I'm cornfused.
Are you mentioning the lack of 100% hilarity because it was somehow guaranteed to occur? (In which case, where was this guarantee and do we get our moneys back?)


Was this some inferred expected return based on past Forum experience? (and be certain to site specific examples).

That Pee Wee...he's a character.

  Comment #2492 by: Mitchell Pilon at about 13:46 on March 2, 2007
Today I did not read and/or see 100%("chance of")hilarity on this forum (thus far). Remember when Pee-Wee was told there was a basement in the Alamo? He believed it. What a crazy American.

  Comment #2491 by: Dave at about 18:30 on March 1, 2007
It's true, there is a semi-regularly scheduled gaming night held on Thursdays. Until recently this consisted of myself, Kris and Josh and Josh's nephew Jack. We usually play boardgames but have also incorporated some CoC and will probably be doing more than that. I would like to keep this going, but we shall see what spring brings. Bob I would certainly love to have you in attendance, but did not think you would be interested in making the drive . Anyone else interested in such geekiness is also invited but should probably RSVP as it does get canceled from time to time.

  Comment #2490 by: gB at about 13:45 on March 1, 2007
Attention Dave: I'm dropping Annah off at Tae Kwon Do at 5:30 and will then hang out there a bit until Susan shows up and then go find something to eat and then come over and see what happens. So... 6:30ish arrival time, most likely.

Attention Bo8b: There's evidently some manner of gaming night on Thursdays at Chez Dave. Tonight will my first attendance.

Attention Adam: Thank you for the Forum!

  Comment #2489 by: Nesssssssssssssssssssss at about 13:45 on March 1, 2007
I thought Chez Dave was renamed: Cadawaca!!!
If it wasn't officially renamed, it should have been.

  Comment #2488 by: bo8b at about 12:53 on March 1, 2007
There's an item at Chez Big D? Is it good? I only like it when it's good.

  Comment #2487 by: Dave at about 12:39 on March 1, 2007
As far as I know, we are still on for tonight, although we don't usually start until after seven. If you can push back your arrival time until six I can try to be home by then.

Having read through large chunks of the old posts, evidently I used to be quite verbose about upcoming films (when I wasn't busy bitching about George Lucas every 8 seconds).

So, in keeping with that film this just in:

Variety reports that Dimension Films has closed a deal to remake David Cronenberg's 1981 SF horror movie SCANNERS, with SAW II director Darren Lynn Bousman at the helm. BLADE and BATMAN BEGINS Begins writer David Goyer will pen the script. The story revolves around a scientist who infiltrates an underground movement of "scanners," whose telepathic abilities make them lethal weapons. The original was best remembered for an exploding-head finale. Dimension co-chairman Bob Weinstein has earmarked an early 2008 production start; the aim is to release the film later that year.

I don't know anything about this Saw II business but Batman Begins was pretty solid and Goyer also wrote Dark City and Dollman vs Demonic Toys so it could be really cool. I gotta point out that the rad and famous exploding head is totally not the finale but happens at the beginning of the flick (and is SUPER fun to watch in slow motion!).

  Comment #2484 by: gB at about 23:01 on February 28, 2007
Attention Dave: Is there an item tomorrow? I'll be in town early evening (5-6ish) and can therefore come to your joint if there's an item.

Hey, George would you again please tell everybody to "shut up!"? Thanks.

  Comment #2478 by: Nessssssssssssssssssss at about 10:05 on February 28, 2007
WADE: My sister is having game nigit tonight. I will NOT be available for you and Catt to visit my head. Which is probably for the best seeing as I'm still all gross.

Sabbath the boys have hairs cut and the aunt and I will be getting grocery type items.

Sundat - laundry that I didn't do the previous day.

I understand that you have plans for St. Louis anyway, so you don't even care.

We will have to chat more to see about gathering next week. K??

You may say whatever you want. I deleted the "censored" word list. Have fun!

  Comment #2476 by: gB at about 20:22 on February 27, 2007
Does the Open Forum still support censorship? Or can I say fuck here now if I want to?

  Comment #2475 by: Mitchell Pilon at about 18:38 on February 27, 2007
This is so dumb, Adam. I totally support you!!!

  Comment #2474 by: Kris at about 17:55 on February 27, 2007
Yeah, take your emoticons, and your cutesy pictures, and "what new wave 80's band are you?" quizzes and put them directly up your arses. Long live the open forum. I love it when useful things are created for my benefit without any effort being exerted on my part. Thank you Adam!

  Comment #2473 by: Dave at about 16:39 on February 27, 2007
Bah, I have spurned the use of all those new fangled sites anyhow. They take up entirely too much of my free time. Long live the forum.

  Comment #2472 by: Nessssssssssssssssssssssssss at about 15:04 on February 27, 2007
It really lives????

This is awesome news.

Thank you Mr. Pilon!!!!

I fully endorse this improved misuse of minutia.
