I'll give it a go ...

Who's left in the Democratic primary after tonight? Anyone but Kerry and Edwards? Clark's already off the back and suffering, and Dean was shelled long ago but hasn't admitted it ...

yawn

I would be interested to know if anyone was unsatisfied with the previous format. In general it worked well and people were happy. I'm not some sort of curmudgeon that avoids change, but this looks like the sort of thing that wasn't inspired by user requests.

short answer

The old format is no longer supported by the company that wrote it. It had problems on the back end that were not apparent to the user.

Like a TV guy told me in the '80s:

Oh, Beta is much, much better than VHS. The difference isn't visible to the naked eye, but it's far superior.

Thank you for the explanation. I'll have to say I do like this email notification option.

i liked the "old" format. it--for better or worse, lended a legitimacy to ALL the posts, with
this format the "extra" features are distracting. But now it's easier to see who the
goobers are. Can we say goobers?

OMG! The oldest thread in the Lounge and there are posts from BJ (father of BJII?), Dr. Hoo, and AinE!

I have now satisfied my urge to revive one of the oldest threads in the Lounge.

You know what's sort of weird, is that earlier today, I thought about clicking to "page 1" of the lounge and bumping the oldest available thread.

What's even MORE weird is that earlier today, I was about to admonish a student in my weight lifting class about using an improper grip for bench press... and the weight slid off of his hands and landed on his gut just as I started to talk.

How much was he bench pressing?

did you:
a) point at his crotch and laugh
b) admonish him anyway
c) roll your eyes
d) crave bacon

He was bench pressing 185 pounds...

a) No, honestly, I stood there in disbelief- as did his friend who was "spotting" him. After about 2 seconds, everyone realized what happened and grabbed the barbell off of him.
b) After I found out that he was OK, I asked him if that scared the hell out of him, and he told me yes, a little bit.
c) no
d) every second of every day.
