I am likely going to finally be forced to upgrade the software for the forum due to mandatory security updates to my server. I'll post more when I know more.

Thanks for the heads-up, Charles. IIRC, you had indicated a while back that this was coming eventually, so this sounds like an " 'eventually' is almost here" sort of thing.

Many thanks for keeping this traveling road show...well, on the road! :)
Politics these days is show business. Elections are Dancing with the Stars with consequences. ~Rue Bella

(About fame) Living for likes, shares and follows is a form of validation. The question is whether it is also the source of our self esteem. If it is, we’re screwed. And, culturally, it seems as if it’s become more and more our shared value. ... Meringue is no longer a sweet and pretty topping but the body itself. ~Charles Perez

Competent people go in one of a few directions. But incompetence is infinite. ~David Brooks, NY Times

--- On September 17, 1787, as Benjamin Franklin was leaving the deliberations of the Constitutional Convention, at Independence Hall, in Philadelphia, a woman called out to him, saying, “Well, Doctor, what have we got, a republic or a monarchy?”
“A republic,” Franklin said, “if you can keep it.”

Hi Charles. I would be happy to contribute money to help offset any of the costs you incur. No reason you should fund this site on your own. Thanks for keeping it going.

Sessions
