Sweet. You two bask :paranoid: and when the BP shows back up (give me a day or so) I should have it reskinned and looking like a proper forum.
We will be cruel to Pitt.  And through our cruelty they will know who we are.  And they will find the evidence of our cruelty in the disemboweled, dismembered and disfigured bodies of their brothers we leave behind us.  And Pitt won't be able to help themselves but imagine the cruelty their brothers endured at our hands and our boot heels and the edge of our knives.  And Pitt will be sickened by us.  And Pitt will talk about us.  And Pitt will fear us.

As part of the ongoing site improvements I am going to be doing some major server work the next four days. During this time I am going to be moving the site over to one of our backup servers. I will move it tonight around 11:00. I don't anticipate any downtime but any posts made between 11:00 and 11:15 have a chance of getting lost.

I'll keep you updated on any progress and/or issues.

Will that work include the reemergence of the BP? I think that our glow has dimmed sufficiently for us to get back to helping the world solve some problems.

Yes. The BP and TMN have been on two separate servers since the middle of January. The plan is to move them both onto the same server. Actually, a load-balanced cluster, which is what I'm currently working on.

This is a minor thing but is there any way to update the favicon to something more WVU/WV related? I don't know if the flying WV would be an issue but maybe the state outline? I just use the favicon as a bookmark on my bookmarks bar to save space, and the current one (two horizontal red lines) always makes me have to think about it for a second to remember what it is. B-)

Yep. It is on my to-do list.

I'm going to continue with maintenance tonight at 11:00. The site will be up but any posts made between 11:00 and 11:15 will likely be lost so feel free to browse but not post. I'll post when everything is back up and running. Thanks.

I am done with maintenance early so there won't be any downtime tonight.

How do you embed youtube videos? I've tried several different methods using the youtube button in the reply window and without, but can't figure it out

The youtube link needs to look like this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=09lS-6GXQe4. Then, I prefer to then highlight only that text (make sure you aren't highlighting blank space after the link, if that makes sense) and click the "youtube" button on here. I never have trouble when I do it that way.

I think that you just have to make sure it doesn't have embed in the link

Since the time change, real time is one hour ahead of posted time on here. Is there anyway to change this?
