Re: General Chit-Chat Thread
Back! Sorry guys I got called away for a few weeks on a no-advance-notice field service emergency, to hamei's neck of the woods, Taiwan. Anyway! HAL I'm going to arrange with Kaz to send you your DMedia bracket, Kaz I have collected some Indigo2 power supplies including one that I think would work with yours, they're on my bench in the lab at work I'll get the SGI part number tomorrow to get your input on it. As I mentioned before I don't *think* there's anything wrong with the one you sent me, so I'd like to send you a different one pulled from a known-working system to see if we can rule out a power supply issue as the problem, without having to recap (unnecessarily) the original one. To everyone who's waiting for a PM reply from me, I hope to get to it before the board redo, ATM just getting unpacked and re-situated from my trip halfway around the world and back...

Back in the Netherlands after a six week holiday down under with the Kangaroos and Kiwis. Canada sounds like fun, but such a trip isn't likely to happen fund-wise in the foreseeable future.

Any good tourist hubs in Canada for a family with teen kids?

*All* of Canada is a tourist attraction! A good place to start is the Parks Canada website. It's on my bucket list to canoe the entire length of the South Nahanni River, including the parts that are upstream of the National Park. And the reason why the park doesn't include the upstream section is because it's too treacherous, and they didn't want people dying in the park... :o

A personal hero of mine, Jeanne Bourquin, canoed it with a group of other Outward Bound instructors (all women) and wrote a great story about it that appeared in Outside magazine, and canoeing that river has been on my todo list ever since. Jeanne makes canoes:

Thank you Raion-Fox for the hard work.

If there are any mod changes that require attention let me (and others) know.
Avatar image uploads don't work as of yet, but i'm sure it will be fixable.

RE: General Chit-Chat Thread
Pretty good overall, but I miss the old theme and the avatar-to-the-side layout - and is there any chance the banner up top could be shrunk a bit? It takes up like a third of my screen vertically.

Oh, and can we turn off the interstitial "now redirecting you to the actual search results" page that happens every time I pull up the new-posts list? That's stupefyingly pointless.

I've fixed that. NGINX config needed some work.

I'm gonna add some additional themes, but we REALLY NEEDED to get off PHPBB. Look at their most recent release - January. No bugfixes, no test releases, just a bunch of politics. And the whole plain http but offering SSL thing was NIGHTMARE on phpbb. Here, it was a cakewalk.

I'll see what I can do to address everyone's concerns and make the place more personalized
