Re: never ending praise thread

I'm thankful it's the start of the weekend. My day was trucking along just fine until about 3 PM when a bomb was dropped on my lap. I got things taken care of but boy do I need a weekend.

Re: Your favorite aspects of the Forum's new software?

My programming teachers and I have been toying around with some ideas.
