Philip/Akhu, you are a real asset to the Boot program and Wheaton Laboratories in general.  I'm so glad you worked out how to repair the washing machine.  Everybody uses that!

You are doing the Great Spirit's work in that Shopatorium - you do you, bro.

Is there any way to make page breaks mor frequently on picture heavy threads?  Even though they have increased my band width this thread times out before all the pictures are loaded.  I can get to them by clicking on the picture icon. and opening them in a new tab but it is a tedious process.

I have the same problem, too, Hans. I know we've discussed making the forum software allow people to choose how many posts they see per page. That requires a developer, though, and ours are volunteers and rather busy (and I sure don't know how to mess with forum programming)!

This article caught my eye in the Library. I hope to make my ancestors proud and follow in their footsteps. To live in harmony with Mother Earth not against.

This thread now has 10 posts per page instead of 40.  This is a brand new feature.   Please let us know if there are any problems.

-Day 24-

• Finished two shelves
• Working on pantry shelves now
• Maximizing all avaliable storage space in the Library
• These type of projects usually get put on hold when the snow melts
and the Lab is easily accesibly, but winter presses on so facility improvements take precedent
