Re: Incident Notification Forum

This isn't intended to be a type of notification forum that does instant notifications on incidents. Rather just a place to discuss them, maybe even afterwards. It's not meant as a media notification service, nor was that my intention. Just something that was pretty popular here in the past, and I w...

Incident Notification Forum

Just gauging interest here.
Years back, we used to have an incident notification forum here, that was quite popular. Would you like to see one again?

Re: Chicopee Flea is next Saturday March 7th

Their prime rib is HUGE, and it is excellent. But I just find I like the variety at the Blue Hair Cafe (The Lucky Strike) better. Plus the Strike has amazing pies.

As some of you may have noticed, we had some degraded performance again this morning. Because of this, I am officially beginning the pruning of non active users. Based on the last log-in date, and post count. If the log in date exceeds a threshold and the user has 0 posts, you will be the first to g...

I don't want wrong, or bad frequencies listed in the wiki. Unfortunately the wiki is such a broad-brush system for database use, and our specific use would require something more sophisticated. Radio Reference will do this, where a search comes up with a search range. If we transitioned to a more cu...
