      Our much loved Deadpool has to work.

      Lots and lots of work. The company he works for has scheduled two major jobs that they expect him to finish with his usual flair and quality. Both of these are at least two hours from his home, so he has zero time for anything except his life (believe it or not he cooks almost all the meals and his damn dog needs SOME attention) for at least a few months. Maybe as long as six. That depends on how smoothly the work progresses.

      So, please refrain from sending him PM’s and mentions to things in topics. Otherwise he’ll NEVER get thru them when he sits down to get back with us.

      We need to do some work on the site that he normally would have done. Some back end coding work that we want to have put into things that work from the front end called plugins. You may have noticed that the latest update on the core programs screwed up placement of the taskbar and the discussion tree which is formally placed below it. That is an example of a fix that Deadpool did but it was hacked into the back end code so the update wiped it clean.

      So, that means we are going to formally ask for donations. This work (which is only going to need to be done once this time) is going to bust our slender wallet. The upgrade should include troubleshooting the call delays that started with the newer version of WordPress which makes the site slower in certain circumstances. This is actually a database issue that came about with the latest version of WP creating a somewhat new database that seems to lose the calls once in a while. Nobody has a clue how, so we need to get a hired gun to help with all of this.

      Please donate if you can. We (admins and mods) are discussing options like our famous t-shirts being in the mix.

        That would be a major YES, @pam2

        How would you like to do trivia for one day each week, like say Monday Trivia by Pam2? Or even Monday and Tuesday?

        Otherwise I may have to just let Monday thru Wednesday lapse unless someone volunteers each of those days.

        @njcher !!!

        I haven’t talked to you in a long time. Sorry about that, but a lot has happened to me in the past year. I certainly hope everything is well with you and yours….

        You are wonderful. Thanks for the support.

      but only a few nickles and dimes per dollar fall through the cracks at the border. 1 CAD =.73 USD.
