Hehe, I'm in the process of writing it on my iPad in a Borders :)

lol.....didn't think anyone would catch that eh?

It turns out that it's a pain in e ass to write code on an iPad. I'll fix up the page tonight when I'm at home. If you can, take a look now and let me know if e examples ere now make sense.

ummm...not to me it doesn't, but that is not saying much! layman's terms please!

Hope you have not jumped the gun. Once something like this opens up, you could be overwhelmed before you know it. (I also hope everyone will be patient because we desparately need a new blogging site.) I was just reading an article from 2006, about the immediate popularity of Soulcast (can we mention that site here?). It was growing faster than Facebook at the time.

Will we be able to substribe to people and vice versa. Will posts just stack up or will we have several views like you-know-where? Never mind, it will all come clear I am sure.

I notice there is no anonymous commenting. That is definitely a good thing.

I hope you realize that 99.9% of us can only get around on the GUI side of things, so examples of code mean nothing to us! Sad yes, but true :/

It will take some time and patience for me but eventually I'll understand this comment formatting by experimenting. You're putting out a great effort in doing this Y....many thanks.

I enjoyed your post and commented, D6fer, but wanted to add my own flavor to it. So many things have changed, and will change, but there are still some things that will never change. I just went outside and looked up at the night sky, and there

I think I have a really good first step that will keep the homepage exactly as it is now and put the new stuff off on a new part of the site. It'll likely be a few weeks before I get it working, we'll see how it goes once I get it up. Like I said, the read the rest
