Forum Software Update - 2/6 to 2/10/2019

Post by extrememarine » Wed Feb 06, 2019 7:36 pm

At some point between now and Sunday (2/10/19), I plan to run a software update on the forum site. This could mean - wait for it - some down time.

I'll do my best to make this as painless and as quick as possible, but no promises...

Thanks,

Wayne

The pr0nHub guys are gonna be reviewing the monthly stats and scratch their heads why the holy hell was their such a dramatic spike in searches for 'Tijuana Shaved Sheep Show'.

Oh ya, speaking of pr0nHub.. google their 'year in review' stats. The scale of the stats they collect is mind boggling.

I don't want to imagine what they do with that data ....

<PornHub conference room. Several people sitting at a conference table. Wardrobe runs the spectrum from suits to worn out t-shirts.>

Suit #1: OK, we're here to go over the Year in Review statistics.
T-shirt guy: Well, the stats clearly show we don't have enough videos of Tijuana Sheep getting shaved.
Pantsuit woman: Just make sure a couple of them are rams. See how many views for the three videos we had? Of course, those might be pickup truck guys getting misled by the "ram" labeling.
T-shirt guy: And what's with all these hits from FJRiders.com? Don't they have anything better to do than surf porn?
Young guy in suit: Those FJR guys also hit the food porn, biker porn, and camping stuff.
Pantsuit: Motorcycles, food, and campsites? That's a pretty limited life, don't you think? Or is there something kinky here that I don't get?
T-shirt guy: Hey, how about camping with food AND sheep? Maybe a small flock of sheep? The sheep can eat grass while the people eat ... I dunno ... lamb chops, maybe?
Suit #1: Now we're getting somewhere! You guys are simply the best team ever!

...........

(and for the record, I didn't see this thread in the "No Bullshitting" category.)

Thanks for not having your laptop die in the middle of the update. I have a 286 Desktop from 1986 if you need one.

The sad bit is it's likely faster running DOS, than a modern box running Windows.
