Ok, what Mefite owes you a keyboard or monitor because they wrote something that was so damn funny you lost bodily control for a moment? Extra credit for graphic descriptions of the mess :)
Not sure if this was on the Blue or Green (possibly even the Grey), but within the last year or two, I remember a discussion around freeware that automatically adjusted your monitors to the ideal brightness/setting. [more inside]
Whatever happened to the idea that soon we'd be able to flag a thread as "watch," so that one doesn't have to post some crappy comment just to ensure the thread appears in one's "My Comments" list? There are many threads I wish to monitor, and few I wish to actually comment upon.
