I must admit that having an email that read "noumenon@palimpsest" would be cool. Is that about what they are?

yep! I love it - people ask me about it all the time, and I tell them about this place, and then start about books, and they get glazed expressions and back away slowly!

Oh, just thought, my blog , which I think is hosted here, was a woeful failure as I singularly failed to have much to write about - or even when I did I didn't! So, don't worry about transferring it. I keep thinking I should start up again with my premise of 'one small thing of happiness every day', as I keep on having them.. but haven't yet - is there a cupboard I could store it in?!

I agree with John about the Top Tens: it does generate a lot of interest for new members and for people passing by: some of those threads are some of the most frequently viewed here, and it's an easy port of call for new members to put up their fave things.

Parsnip to go, Features to go sub-forum, Books to be the leader (although I think the way it is now is good, because even though it's not ove-used, it's useful to know all the advice and info is there at the top. But at the bottom of the page is okay, I guess.

I'm not too sure about merging TV and Film. They really are very different and doing searches in that forum at the moment is very clear-cut. But I'm open to the change.

There's a fair amount of music discussed on here, would it be worth having a separate forum or subforum?

TV and Film sounds good to me.

Absolutely nothing wrong with Pine Wavey - it's just a little bit elderly! Do I have a palimp email address?

I'm not sure it matters, as if you do you aren't using it! You can cetainly have one under the new regime though. I warn you, though, the interface does use more than one colour, and demands occasional use of a mouse.

Oh my god, I know what you two are talking about! It's been a hell of a long time though, only vague memories...

amarie, note how the UofW web site talks about it in the past tense:

The guiding principles for Pine's user-interface were: careful limitation of features, one-character mnemonic commands, always-present command menus, immediate user feedback, and high tolerance for user mistakes.

I know, I know, I'm stuck in the dark ages. I'm barely coping with the impending closure of our Central Unix Service. And I don't use direct debit!

I. Fear. Change.

This is all very exciting! OK, private messages deleted, avatar copied, and only a couple of questions.

1) Will the Palimp still be green?
2) In the new vbulletin, will there be some sort of protection against spammers creating new accounts? Sometimes I go nearly crosseyed and head-rotated trying to decipher the names of ''new members.''
