This will start it all. Again.

When I (and theac) started this forum, back in 2004, we had a front page. Eventually we (we, theac, Dirk, FatBurger, and others) ran out of things to say and we 86'd it. We're coming up on the eight year anniversary of our little innerweb clouds and I figured we'd try it again. Why not, right? Maybe it will do better than the old front page, or the puzzle forum (anyone remember that one?).
So here it comes: the new, old front page, with articles including instructional how-tos, recipes, reviews, cartoons, and general useless crap. We've got some good stuff coming. I hope you enjoy it. We probably could use some help, so maybe you will be inspired to write about something. In fact, if you want to write up your own unique article about something that you're interested in, UF will mail you a free tshirt if it's published!

I'd also like to take the chance to announce another new feature. I'm calling it MMS2BBS. It's officially out of alpha status, with most cell phone providers supported. ;) Grab your smart phone right now and add in the address [email protected]. When you see something cool, send a picture message (NOT an email) to that address. It will be instantly posted to the forum!

That's all for now!

TL:DR, new features: Front page, pic poster

I'm sure there are some things broken, like probably the mobile theme. I'll get working on that stuff tomorrow. And this front page post icon I (clearly) threw together in like 5 minutes, any graphics gurus wanna help?

Still got some new features to add as well. :)

edit: And April mentioned that the 'go to your last post' button is missing. That's super annoying, I'll get to work on that first.

I wonder how Mr. DirkPhoenix is these days, and, presumably, how his divorce went, if he was murdered at any point during the proceedings, and if any potential offspring have had their quality of life reduced to Spousal-Warhead.

Also: There are broken things.

The "go to last post" and "go to next most recent post since the last time I read this thread" buttons are gone.

I am convinced that I could have phrased the second bit of that last sentence better, but I'll be damned if I can work out how to do it right now.

What if I invited my school peers to this forum?

Edit 1: Who's the last new person that's still active on these forums?

This board is running out of oil. Can someone come up with an od/ed piece related to oil shortages? Someone well informed, like Pork Soda?

I wonder how Fatburger and Fuxx are getting on with their cute offspring. Pretty sure I was deleted from their facebook aons ago for being too hip.

Once you are an English teacher, please don't let your pupils get away with spelling aeons incorrectly.
