    Hey all.

    Been a fun 2 years here at the Monkey. Not without it's growing pains but still great to watch the evolution and rotation of things and people.

    We've added a few new features to the forum. Some are working and others are almost working. Most of you have seen the Blogs link at the top. It's getting some nice activity and creative usage. The application is made by the same folks that created this forum software and is in the early stages and still lacking a few features. The blog, tonight, has started posting a thread each time a new blog is created. Pardon the 40 some blog titles you see in your New Posts or Todays Threads search. It batch posted everything we have created to date. From now on it will just spit out one or two a days as blogs are published. BTW, everyone of you has a blog. hit the link and then make a post. it's that easy

    We re-installed the Chat software and it should be working again. Feel free to use it. The bottom of the forum has some information about who is where and users will show up in Who's Chatting if any are there.

    We've had a few requests for some other styles or skins. You now have 2 in the lower left hand corner of the forum. One is dark and the other is white. Use them if you'd like. Any styles we install will remain about like you see them. It's too much work to update each style with all the custom links etc. You should be able to find everything you need. Check "Quick Links" in either of those two styles. I think Chat is in there.

    We have started to play around with some internet TV and Radio but haven't waded through all of the channels that came pre-loaded. If you want to take a look, click on the period (.) in the top menu bar. The categories are mostly music but you can find one that says TV and I think there are quite a few international news spots.

    Also working on a forum integrated auction and classified section to go along with the Buy Sell or Trade forum. It's called vBay if you want to look into it.

    We have always tried to keep things simple here but as we grow in numbers of posts, it starts to become difficult to find things and the organization starts to crumble. Look for a few more sub-forums in Survival. Alternative energy is one of them. We're also trying to get Bear to install a webcam in his counting house so we can watch him count silver coins in real time.

    It will look strange for a day. Then that glut will settle out.

    Every time I click on a link it opens a new tab. Originally thought that it was Firefox, but it isn't. Sometimes when the new window opens, I have to log in again, even though I use click the "forever" when I log in the first time.

    Annoying but not a big deal.

    Several of us were chatting last night and it worked well, other than kicking Tracy out and not telling her one time.

    I'm not sure that I'd blame that on the software, I'd be more inclined to chalk that one up to user error.
