    "ithium is a non-profit webhost, which is pretty much unique. The mission of ithium is to provide free hosting resources for worthwhile and needy non-profit projects, which otherwise may not be able to obtain such facilities. The money from commercial customers goes to maintain ithium's servers and further development."

    Hi krycek:
    Just a note regarding sigs, they should be kept to 4 lines or below. If you could chop some of that off, that'd be great

    Here are the guidelines again: http://www.codingforums.com/rules.htm
    - George
    - JavaScript Kit- JavaScript tutorials and 400+ scripts!
    - JavaScript Reference- JavaScript reference you can relate to.

    sorry

    In all the time I've been here I've never realised about the 4-line limit

    ...saying "congratulations" or something would have been appreciated, though

    PS - I notice you changed my thread title too

    Whenever you're dealing with a set of rules, there are two thing you need to bear in mind

    - the letter of the law
    - the spirit of the law

    The second is most important; the first is there for people who just don't get it.

    I'm sure everyone here is intelligent enough to get it, so please respect it.


    ... my 2 cents ...

    Um, no, actually it's 5 lines, and 4 of them are in small font, hence the whole thing takes up the same amount of room as 4 normal lines. I know, cos I've carefully measured it.

    And, I am at 1920x1440 however on my second monitor I use 1280x1024, and it looks fine there...

    And, thanks for saying "congratulations"

    Thankyou nightfire, much appreciated yup, I'm looking forward to it...

    I'm kinda disappointed that no-one else who posted here felt like talking about the subject of the thread, even if they did not want to wish me well

    I have a lot of friends on these forums, and although the ones I know best have already congratulated me through Messenger or email, I thought that maybe the other people who I know to a lesser extent would be interested. Well, that's been the case on other forums that I am a member of.

    I know that not many people come here as opposed to the other boards of CodingForums, and due to a lack of a "General Chitchat" forum I had to post in here, but still...

    Sorry dude, I was under the impression that your signature itself was the subject of the thread, rather than what it said; I didn't actually read it past the first line.

    I just don't feel that a signature is the appropriate place for what is, effectively, your blog. If maybe you'd posted a thread specifically about your news, rather than a thread about your sig which says what your news is, it might have been more obvious what kind of response you wanted.

    Whatever; congratulations anyway, and I hope you don't feel offended by my responses

    Lol, it's not intended to be my blog simply a jokingly-diaryfied transcript of the past few days

    Don't worry, it's not going to keep growing until it takes over the forums

    Indeed, I'm only intending to have it there for a short period of time, and then back to usual. I just wanted to let people know (I know a lot of people on these forums) because I am excited about it

    It's a pity that WA changed the title of my thread - it originally said "Announcement" and now it says "My sig" (why? "My news" would have been more appropriate) so I can see your confusion.

    I think that because of this, you got the impression that I am creating a blog in my sig or something, when all I am trying to do is tell people my news

    I will actually be making a blog but as for the thread vs sig thing, like I said I wanted all my friends to know about this, and I could not post this in the other boards, obviously, and not many people venture in here... myself included

    Thanks for the congrats, though!

    Interesting ... I generally "search for new posts" rather than browse by forum; half the time I don't even know which subject forum I'm in [makes mental note to pay more attention to this]

    We did used to have a general chit-chat forum, but it was removed because, well, lots of reasons. I believe that some of our members run another forum for general chat ..?

    Congratulations. It will be a little krycek or a krycette?

    Btw, have you already read the Are you prepared for parenthood guide?
