I think there are forums for that. This forum has some way off topic junk. Is that not what friends are for, to bore to death with trivia. Off topic used to mean "related" but off topic. What time is it by the way?cwerdna wrote:Even in the Off Topic area?EVDRIVER wrote: Don't start threads on what is on your mind or because you have nothing better to do.
FWIW, on Tivocommunity, the Happy Hour - General Chit-Chat area (you need an account there to see it) has grown to be a FAR more active place than everything else TiVo related, combined. Some folks don't even have TiVos anymore but still participate there.
The threads in the Happy Hour area range from threads like "Help me plan my wedding" to a lot of "Is this stealing?" threads to a favorite "What should happen to people who park like this?" to "SOAK: Google security certificates & VPN" (SOAK==Source Of All Knowledge) to "HP Touchpad discontinued - already on sale for $99!" and so on...
Ha... well, it's good to have OT areas here and on other boards where there's a chance that a decent subset of members have the same interests (e.g. technology, gadgets, sci-fi, etc.) Over on the OT area on Priuschat (Fred's House of Pancakes), we've had some discussions on Star Trek, tablets, iPhones/iOS, Siri and so on. Some of the posts do sometimes strike a chord...EVDRIVER wrote: I think there are forums for that. This forum has some way off topic junk.

Yep. Unfortunately, since neither Bing nor Google have completely indexed MNL, I sometimes have to use both of them since MNL's search is half broken, or possibly just broken for older posts.klaus wrote:Don't you mean back off topic since this topic wasn't about the broken search?
Google and Bing are 2 separate companies with different ideas, so of course your results will be different.
That would be too much work. Amazingly, people on other forums are able to keep topics relatively limited and easy to follow. It is also easy to ask a question on a related thread here as it will be addressed. Every question, thought, comment or PR news release on a vaporware research project does not need a new thread. In fact we should have a PR release thread because they are a dime a dozen.
I spent quite a while looking for the "search link at the top". It doesn't appear unless you have registered and logged in. You might want to indicate that in your introductory message.evnow wrote: 2. Please search the forum for what you are looking for before starting a new thread.
Use the search link at the top. You can either use the custom google search, which gives much better results or the forum search.
