 note to posters - include an email addy!
Author: el_kab0ng

It seems a configuration caused the addition to the forums to poop itself, so anything I attempted to add wasn't showing up... with that, I have a word of advice for some posters.

Include an email address when you post! That way when the forums freak out, can still contact you via email and help you with your problems!

Interesting... Glad you figured out what the problem was.

Thing is.... I never enter anything in the "Your Email:" field.

Also: see http://www.freebsddiary.org/phorum/read.php?f=1&i=6686&t=6686 for an example of others who have not supplied a value for that field.

exactly my point! I'd like to contact folks offline with more details when the forums wig out...but can't unless you give some sort of alternative contact method..

I know people bitch sometimes when they don't get their answers in due course, but giving an email address might help people with getting a wider support net. Just my .02

Ummm, sorry, I misunderstood what you were referrring to. I thought you were reporting a problem.

But I have found the cause of the problem you reported earlier this week (via email). I've fixed it.
