Re: The Forum will be down for a software upgrade/migration

A little late to the game (and I admittedly didn't read all 5 pages of comments), but overall I like the changes. I haven't tried connecting with my (brand!) new android phone, but for browsing from my computer, it's really nice. Thanks, Charles, for both the upgrade, and also for continuing to prov...

Re: "Recent Topics" Feature: Stay or go?

I don't particularly care for it, but I know how to scroll my mouse and it takes a microsecond to recognize the area and decide to skip it, so I give the entire issue a rousing "meh". :-)

Re: Late pregnancy carry?

I'm a little late to the party, but an option that was mentioned earlier but not discussed in great detail was the idea of wearing the pistol basically up under your arm. I got a PistolWear Under Arm holster from The Well Armed Woman ( http://www.thewellarmedwoman.com/holsters/pistol-wear-under-arm-...

Re: Trying something out

Rant. I've been staying in a small town while working and I can say that small town folk are simple minded, nosy, and spread gossip like wildfire. No disrespect to anyone who loves the small town way of life, this is just my observation. I've never met so many people who have nothing else to do oth...

The word is temperature.

"I think I have a temperature" - I KNOW you have a temperature. The question is, do you have a fever? ;-)

Re: Word use that drives you up the wall!

"Ya think?" - This pseudo-bon mot is no more original, than "How's that working out for ya"? For you that exercise these banalities, stop. You're embarrassing yourselves. You don't sound like sardonic hipsters - just utterly lacking in originality. Of course, you probably also use other duds like "...

Re: Word use that drives you up the wall!

"I'll reach out to <him/her/them>"
Last time I checked, nobody's arms were long enough to reach the distance in any scenario in which I've heard this phrase used.

How about just saying you'll contact them? What's wrong with that?

Re: Word use that drives you up the wall!

LOL. Remind me not to use that phrase with you. I am sure I use it... and maybe more than I should. At least this thread is making me more aware of how I speak. :mrgreen: LikesShinyThings, You have my sympathy. Truly. I am , as usually, being silly and tongue in cheek.

Re: Word use that drives you up the wall!

Initiating sentences with: "In terms of..." arrrgggghhhh! I'm convinced, some think bit of verbal sputum makes whatever they have to say sound like it contains heaping helpings of gravitas - when if fact it just sounds dorky... Why not, tout de suite, state whatever it is you have to say without pr...

Unfortunately, I seem to have long periods where I can't get to the forum, but I wholeheartedly would make a contribution to support it. Charles, can you give me an idea as to where/how you might post information about making donations, so I can make a point of putting it on my 'keep an eye here' li...
