Hi everyone

Hope all of you are doing well and are managing through this strange period of history.

I've added this new section to the forum to hold conversations that are not really related to anything technical.  It was my feeling that during these days in which our lives have been uprooted and most of us (myself included) are facing the prospect of being locked down for many months that it would be nice to have an area to just engage in friendly conversations.

Please feel free to post in this section as often as you wish, but please keep the following in mind:

  • The Forum Rules all apply here. Please familiarize yourself with these rules before posting here, or anywhere else on the forum.
  • Let's keep politics and religion out of here, please!  We all have our individual beliefs and political leanings, but this forum is NOT the place to debate them.  There are several other forums and subreddits where you can discuss and debate these subjects.
  • Let's try and avoid promoting conspiracy theories, unscientific cures, and other nonsense, please. There is enough fake news on the internet and I don't want this forum to become another source of that.
  • Please be kind, polite and considerate of one another.  I want everyone to feel welcome and safe in this forum.  You can, of course, disagree with another member's opinion, but please do it in a respectful manner.


Otherwise, you can discuss virtually any topic here, providing it doesn't conflict with the forum rules and the above bullet points.  It is certainly not my intention to censor or police the topics in this section. If you want to give us the recipe for your grandmother's famous beef stew or discuss the new supernova they just saw in a far-off galaxy you are welcome to do that here.  

As long as you don't claim that grandma's stew cures COVID-19, or that it was caused by aliens!


Enjoy the new section and please, stay safe.

I like it

Of course I'll have to try annoying some people by playing with the buttons on the sidebar...

Just as a test you understand

Oh, and where did you say you put the "Aliens" thread ? I can't seem to find it

Is there a button to play a funny sound ? Hmm, no, I don't see one
