Paisley? It's supposed to be tie-dye.

The flash of light you saw in the sky was not a UFO. Swamp gas from a weather balloon was trapped in a thermal pocket and reflected the light from Venus.

Two more subforums under General Subjects that have "Search this forum..." issues: http://skepticforum.com/viewforum.php?f=32
http://skepticforum.com/viewforum.php?f=24


Will one fix fix 'em all, or is it better to list them individually when found?
Please check again and let me know if it's working now.

Nope. Those^two and http://skepticforum.com/viewforum.php?f=39 still won't do it (for me), but added the page "Sorry but you cannot use search at this time. Please try again in X seconds." to "This site can't be reached". Other random samples in General Subjects worked just fine.

"Elegance" has a handy permanent "New posts" link in the header and "we_universal" skips the newer drop-down menu that came with the last forum update, both functions lazy me* appreciates. :-P



* That same 'me' still mourns the loss of the previous version. :cry:)

I will be rebuilding the search index. That will take about an hour. Search will not work correctly while this is being done. I might turn Search off until the index has been rebuilt.

:hmm: "ProLight" scrolling feature ain't bad... and make "we_clearblue" green/black and add a UFO - and it's almost déjà vu. :-P

(Of the three subforums with "Search" issues I listed, only http://skepticforum.com/viewforum.php?f=39 isn't working atm.

ETA Oh, and I seem to have problems with following links to other pages on this website, like the one you gave earlier, Pyrrho. They open to pages I'm no longer signed into? But the links I post myself don't do that. Has anyone else run into this issue?)

Ah, but I bet that your tea leaves were fresh... we only had used and subsequently discarded tea leaves – to be shared with the whole neighbourhood.
