    I enjoyed it as well. I am here due to #4 of that posting

    "...We'll get a lot of new members from the Windows Secrets subscriber base between Nov. 23 and Dec. 9

    The WS newsletter currently has more than 400,000 opt-in subscribers. Not all of them will become Lounge members, but I'd bet a buck that at least 10% of them will. We could get 40,000 or more new members in short order. That means the Lounge may triple its membership, to 60,000 or so from 20,000 today. The newsletter subscribers will be notified in phases over the next three weeks...."

    Ah, this seems to be the meme of the day. I went looking through the old history this morning, and ran across that very same post myself.

    I'm proud to have been around for much of that history (albeit in the background). I got in on literally the last days of the "first" lounge, just before it died; lurked in the interim split-screen lounge making maybe two posts there; and then found my way to what most of us think of as Woody's Lounge within weeks of its resurrection. Hopefully, we'll continue on for many years to come.

Hardware was put in place, code written, and an infrastructure set up. The Lounge has been operating since that time. While there have been ups and downs (mainly hardware related), the Lounge has continued to this day as a valuable resource for those seeking answers to mainly Microsoft-related issues. The Lounge was never opened to search engines however, and as a result, users learned of the Lounge mainly by word of mouth, e-mail, or references to the Lounge in the various newsletters that Woody published. The Lounge was staffed and maintained stricly by volunteers until it was recently purchased by Brian Livingston from Windows Secrets.

    For more information on that development, see here.

    I notice that it now says Profile Photo (in development) in the Edit Profile section.

    Guess they are still working on fixing this.

    We have what looks like a fix ready to go. I'm hoping to get it out there with fixes to several other issues and the search issue.

    Unfortunately, some other things came up this week and got in the way of finalizing the new build. More updates soon.

    Thanks,
    Tony

    Well, I don't know who I have to thank for it, but my picture has been changed to the one I wanted, so ..... whoever it was that did it - thank you so much.

    Gotta go and catch up on the news in the other threads now.

    Could someone test changing their profile pic? I think I've fixed it.
