Events...what the hell happened to it? I feel like somebody stuck my socket driver in the wrong drawer and now I can't find it when I need it. Granted, its got me poking around in places I haven't been in awhile, but not being able to find it is driving me mad.

"Sometimes change is the illusion of progress." - ARBY 1996.

It has been stated and made clear that some changes would be taking place in the near future.
Bill is merely trying to simplify some things and restructure shit so it is more user friendly.

"Sometimes change is the illusion of progress." - ARBY 1996.

"Poser"- ME Just now

The original quot that this was derived from came from Charles Ogburn's "Merrill's Marauders"(1957) and reads- "We trained hard, but it seemed that every time we were beginning to form up into teams we would be reorganised. Presumably the plans for our employment were being changed. I was to learn later in life that, perhaps because we are so good at organising, we tend as a nation to meet any new situation by reorganising; and a wonderful method it can be for creating the illusion of progress while producing confusion, inefficiency and demoralization."

Later, someone shortened it to "Change is the illusion of progress", and has been used many times by politicians.


BAM! Dropped more knowledge..

His Name was ARBY.

It was the best of times. It was the worst of times.
It was 1996.

BAM! Dropped even more knowledge.

Except politicians and the like that were using it were doing so before 1996, so unless Arby is a politician... Well, that would explain a lot...

The Events section was one of the most important one's IMO. I have no clue what most of them were called and wouldn't know what to search for if I tried. Getting rid of the others was okay by me but I'll miss the Events one.

How bout adding a calendar then with just event listed and a link to the original post so you can search by date
