The maintenance work set out below has been completed.

In the coming week I will be replacing some network wiring that connects this website to the Internet. I will also be replacing one of the servers that hosts the site's domain name delegation.

The wiring work will result in a disruption of up to ten minutes whilst connections are made however the replacement of the domain name server should not cause a disruption as there is a second server to take over when the primary server is offline.

I will try and carry out this work at a time when a disruption will cause the least possible impact on members.

While you were doing that maintenance, I was getting maintenance done on my left eye. Specifically the plastic lens (which replaced a cataract) got out of alignment. So my eye surgeon put it back where it should be, stitching its spring arms down so it don't move again. No more false images from light getting past the lens edges. http://pw2.netcom.com/~wa2ise/radios/banana.gif

For a couple of years a long time ago I worked as a wardsman in the theatres of a private hospital. Nothing made my nuts feel like they weighed five tonnes more than watching lens replacement patients cop that huge nerve block the surgeon jabs in around the eye ball with a fairly long needle on a 10mL syringe. I would imagine that there would be a good reason for the surgeon to keep eye patients awake for small operations like that though I never asked why.

I hope your operation went well. Smile

My eye looks to be getting better. Still a bit sore. But better vision. Oh, they give you some anti-anxiety drug (probably a controlled substance) to make you don't care, along with a local. They said they used that long needle, but I don't even remember it.

Most pre-meds here consist of Valium, Phenergan or a similar drug to provide relaxation but also to shorten one's attention span. Because of that one has to sign their consent form before the tablets are handed out.

G'day GTC,

Both your suggestion and the update should be working already. I will check these tonight.

I should bring the look and feel of the front page forum inline with the others too. I'd long forgotten this old setup was still live.

Okay, both issues are now sorted. I have a redesigned profile page on the drawing board. It will include an even better indication of whether features that can be hidden are in fact showing or not and also a few other nifty features.
