Don't they run the wishbone or some shit like that now? I can see Keon doing that kind of thing.

Everything posted in this thread is accurate in my opinion.

Applying the Doc or the TTT to a post doesn't hurt anyone's reputation points.

Yeah, he's really cooled off since his hitting streak early in the season. A change of scenery might help.

Yeah, I've heard good things about that one.

Scientology always struck me as sort of an expensive alternative to Mormonism. You don't have to wear special underware, though, so there's that.

I contacted the University and they said a contract with Dawson is "still being finalized."

Yah, I read some lovefest to Lanny from some grown ass man on there several years ago and cancelled my membership that fuckin day

Lanny really aims to be a sports journalist, I think. That's fine. He's made some inroads towards being accepted as such. That said, my reward isn't time on AM radio or the adulation of jock sniffers. My reward is reading the off-the-wall and occasionally insightful things people post here. A site like BGN will never get you any info beyond the party line.

Yes it is. I just don’t like GT.

Word on the street used to be that The Destroyers were sniffing around pretty openly for a new front man. Problem was, most musicians who were into destruction back then weren't looking to share the stage with a guy playing tenor saxophone.

I said this was in "test" status when I initially posted about it (and that was accurate... somebody at CSNBBS gave me a "D- for execution" LMAO).

Virtual Gilbert should be much-improved now, though. He should stay up-and-running basically 100% of the time. Also, I've educated Virtual Gilbert to avoid the run-on sentences that plagued him in his adolescence, and made him more sophisticated in general.

If anyone has any examples of Gilbert's prose that I haven't incorporated into my system, please share it with me. It will only improve the system. I've included installments 1 and 2 of his latest 3-part email series, plus the two emails that were posted on this site. I'm sure there's other Gilbertspeak out there...

Looks like the other site is making a push to add this feature as well. It's not quite 100%. You won't get the green lock icon on any pages yet, just a yellow lock icon with a warning message. Seems they haven't quite figured out how to securely implement something called "Ad-ometry" securely yet. 

I guess if any of the folks over at the Southeast LinuxFest need help installing a security certificate, they can message me. lol

If this space cadet crap is real, it will take the Virtual Gilbert bot to a whole new level.

Could be Kate Magandy from the Sun-Herald. I hear she wants to do sports again.

I was reading through Jon Gilbert's email messages, and it occurred to me that the way he communicates could be simulated using some pretty rudimentary artificial intelligence techniques. After a bit of hacking, I have come up with an initial version of "Virtual Gilbert." You can access it at this URL:

Each time you visit / refresh the page, you will be shown a computer-generated Gilbert quote. Please keep in mind that this is a test version of the program.

Hope it works. The read/unread has been my only complaint with the board.

Thanks for your efforts.

The read / unread indication should be 100% correct now. It's been correct regarding individual posts within each board for some time now, but I still hadn't fixed the main page where the boards are all listed.

I thought I'd made a post about this earlier, but I don't see it. In any case, the read/unread system that I got out-of-the-box was pretty flawed. It was based on trying to maintain a "time of last visit" for each user, and then marking things as "unread" based on when they'd been posted vs. that "time of last visit."

There are a couple of issues with that. Most obviously, just because a user was here at a certain time doesn't mean he'd actually viewed any particular thread.

The new system is based on what you've actually seen. This requires maintaining / querying a lot of data, but I think it's worth it.

If I could write comments like that on my own I'd run a blog instead of a message board.
