And then after that I will install a second version of Wordpress on this server so that we can have it be the new Trotting Krips site (and we can use trottingkrips.joltcountry.com) and I'll get BryanB the creds. All of that should be very doable given a couple hours after this week.
That'll be great! I'm tempted to say something about this meaning we'll probably be able to have a June relaunch, but I'm done with deadlines from here on out. "Sometime before the competition" is what I'm going with now. Note that "the competition" is not necessarily THE competition and it's not necessarily happening this year. The games of DinoComp 2040 aren't exactly going to review themselves, you know. Damn it, I think I just gave us a deadline again.

OK - I just wrote you with deets on server space where we can set it up, let me know if I screwed something up please.

No worries -- all is well and I have replied now. You would've gotten my email sooner except for the fact that I don't seem capable of writing you a short email. I may need to self-impose the old Tdarcos line limit on myself. To be honest, I just barely kept the last email to two paragraphs as I do have another idea for a new site feature, but I'm not sure it totally fits with RFTK or hasn't already been done elsewhere on the Web.

Believe me, the only thing worse than me self-imposing on myself is me self-imposing on other people. There are no winners when that happens.

The site http://trottingkrips.joltcountry.com/ could not be found. It should be listed as https://joltcountry.com/trottingkrips/

The site https://trottingkrips.com/ triggers a security error. Telling Firefox to go ahead anyway returns a blank page.

You want to be able to edit your own posts? Is it not letting you do that?

There's been a lot of good polls popping up around here recently and it made me wonder why isn't that mandatory to starting a new thread? I think if you want to start a new thread then you should be forced to create a poll that goes along with it.

Thank you for the vote of confidence. From now on, every thread I start will have a poll attached to it and the nice thing is it doesn't even have to be that closely related to the thread topic since you can title the thread and title the poll 2 separate things.

If I can make the bbs do that I'll turn that on for some base.
