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

I don't think any of the teams that beat USM in the regular season are still alive. Somehow, Mississippi State is, though.

I'll go to the @Auburn game and maybe Jackson State. SWAC games are low-stress fun. It's nice to see some actual people in the stadium. Florida Geographical doesn't help with that.

Cleveland Indians took him in the second round. I imagine that's too much money to pass up.

Where's the trust in society anymore? How can you not help out a CSU brother who worked tirelessly promoting this website all over to make it what it is today. How quickly we forget. I busted my stink hole helping and I ask for one tiny favor that costs nothing and this is how I am treated? Maybe I'll ask for that $100 I won for the bowl game. Cause I don't think it was donated in my name like I was promised. Yes. How quickly some of us forget.

I donated your tickets to a charity that teaches disadvantaged youngsters how to do robotics. It's a 501-C3P0 organization.

Looks like this one has already been pushed back to 7PM at the earliest.

Starting Sandlin was Berry's big, think-outside-the-box move. As well as it's paid off, you'd think we'd have more good things to talk about.

I figured you'd appreciate that. Can't spell "catcher" without c-a-t-c-h.

One footnote to this: I've just updated the "Mark all topics as read" and "Mark this forum as read" links to work with the new system. If you tried using these links between last night's changes and now, they probably didn't work.

Thanks for taking a look. This is something I've half-assed in the past because I figured 1) the out-of-the-box functionality was probably pretty damn good and 2) I had bigger fish to fry.

Assertion #2 was probably valid, but assertion #1 (about the quality of the out-of-the-box functionality) was just wrong. With all respect to the people who wrote FluxBB, I just don't agree with the way they tried to implement the "unread link" feature.

So, I've written a replacement system from scratch. It will ultimately require more computing power to run than the original FluxBB implementation, but sometimes the extra hardware is just necessary to make things work right.

If USM really attracts enough traffic to force me to upgrade the server, well, that's a good problem to have in my book.

The system that marks unread threads as bold has been a thorn in my side since day one. I have just completed a thorough investigation of these issues, and have deployed some changes that should address them.

There is one big caveat: in order to facilitate the transition from the old "unread" subsystem to the new subsystem, I've had to arbitrarily show the 10 most recent threads as "unread" for everyone, and to show everything else as "read" for everyone. This is a compromise that should pretty quickly work itself out.

Also, please note that I haven't touched the code that marks entire sub-forums ("Southern Miss," "Politics," etc.) as unread. I've only attempted to fix the "unread" logic for individual topics.

Any details about your user experience are more than welcome.

They're playing in the middle of the day on a Thursday... are they trying to beat the rain or something?

1-1 game in the bottom of the 8th, and Ozzie Albies smashes a triple. He is the NL leader in extra base hits.

He was 77. Didn't realize he was that old.

Once thing I noticed just a few days ago was that his Wikipedia page doesn't mention CUSA. He was commissioner of the SEC after his stint with CUSA, and I think he had a pretty big hand in the national championship setup as it stands today.

If you tried to do anything that required being logged in within the last 10 minutes or so, you may have received an error message. This was due to some work I'm doing to allow you to log in less, and also to make the read / unread topic system more reliable. You will probably need to log in again if you want to post anything, but otherwise things should be back to normal.

Still working on those improvements...
