And you, Tom, will go down in history as the first non-administrator to post on the board.  Thanks for getting the ball rolling!
But us, old friend,
What's to discuss, old friend?

Shouldn't that be AN Historic Day?  ;) (Who's going to start up the Pedant Thread again?)

I kid.  So glad to be back!

Finally! Someone who agrees with me that "an" should be used in front of words beginning with "h" if the accent isn't on the first syllable! (That's okay, Tom. A lot of people agree with your way of writing it too. I got into a lot of arguments about this on the old Pedants (Pedant's? ;) Thread.)

Welcome to the board, Anne, Just the One!

Always happy to join in with a bit of grammatical pedantry whether I'm right or not!!

It's good to be back, well done Chris and Amy!! 🤗👍

Thank you so much Amy and Chris.

To me Facebook never quite felt right; this does.

Thanks, @Gsavage14 and @Gordonb (AKA Graeme and Gordon)! And welcome to the board!

Hi Everyone. Glad to see you all here.  :)  :-*

Full disclosure: We are using a beta version of the forum software because the current release was just too old-school. It wasn't really responsive so people couldn't easily use it on their phones. I think that's going to be important in this day and age so I decided to take my chances with the beta. There are warnings all over the Simple Machine forum not to use the beta version in production. I hope nothing goes wrong, but if it does, I promise to get us back up and running as soon as possible. It is unlikely that we will lose any data in these cases, It will most likely just be a matter of problems with the interface and being down for a little bit.

This is just so wonderful! Thank you, Chris and Amy!!!

My profound  thought for the day is that London in 32C (roughly 90F) weather is not a nice place to be.

That's it as it's just too hot for any more thoughts.

Gsavage14

@Gordonb I concur... It's even too hot to type this repl.....

Thank you Amy and Chris!!!

Ha!  90F is cool here in St. Louis! ;)
