Looks like embedded videos don't show the video anymore, just the link.  Is that a conscious change?  I understand only having links for any after the first in order to avoid obnoxiously long posts with videos, but even the first one?  I'll put my "no fun" vote in for that one.

The video embedding feature is broken and I'm not sure what to do about it.  It was not a deliberate change.

I do think it has something to do with the back and forth move between servers, but I'm not sure what the problem is specifically.

Sorry to be a bother about this- does the ignore list still work or does it take time for it to take effect? Does the username of a symbol rather then an actual name affect the ignore function? I don't usually use the list but I've had enough of this one. Thanks.

If you can read me making fun of your silly Winter Solstice nonsense then no, it is not working. If you don't see this then you will never know about me making fun of your silly Winter Solstice nonsense. Thanks.

His name is no longer a symbol. Try again. It is immediate, btw.

Also make sure you put them in the ignore list and not the buddy list. by default its on the buddy list, so you have to select the other one.

Oh so we're meant to put thought into our posts now?

I see we are limited to a paltry 40000 characters even in drafting mode.

I will have to store my backup copy of my novel elsewhere.

Perhaps on one of these annoying key chain flash drives that are multiplying in my midst like spent BIC lighters.

Those brochures were found to be nothing more than rabble rousing communist literature and any remaining copies should be burned.

Counterfeit BellGab brochures are on the loose?  Then it's true.  Nothing is sacred.

This will come in handy if Art ever decides to drunkenly take up Twitter again.

Heheh.  But seriously, thanks for the upgrades.  That draft feature should come in handy with my flakey connection.

yes, although i don't think drafts are automatically generated.  you have to click the button to save them.  it's nice though if you're working on something and you want to come back to it later or if you have to switch to another machine, etc.

I was curious what volume it would hold in draft mode and pasted in 545,589 characters and spaces. Not novel length, but a good 140 Word doc pages.

There was a moment there where I thought it was going to allow it. 

(I was told Bellgab was the "new storage cloud," and that this storage was available via a new extension option in Firefub Pro called "Steam Vapor." I'm now questioning the license fee for the pro version. It installed an icon, but will not launch.)

Sadly, the counterfeit brochures are more valuable than the two originals.

They should bring in a pretty penny in the underground counterfeit brochure market.  Now I'm glad I saved them.

MV, how come I'm seeing a teeny tiny photo of Fort Rock at the upper left side of my Chrome Bellgab tab? I can't be certain 'cos it's so small, but I think the eyes follow me around the room.

Oh that is all MV's dastardly handiwork.
