      Major Update to OL (please click to open)   02/09/2016

      Sorry for the inconvenience, but we had to update OL and there have been some serious changes made by IPB. The real bad news is that they had to merge User Names and Display Names. This meant that I had to choose between bad and bad. I opted to keep the log-on information the same, so you can get on OL like you always did, but now your User Name is displayed. If your User Name and Display Name were the same, you will not feel the change. If they were different, you are probably irritated right now. I will figure out how you can change this so you can revert to the Display Name you used before if you like, however this may entail a change in how you log-on. The good news is that OL is now searchable from the very beginning. This means all the old posts from the A-Team in Objectivism (and everybody else) will finally show up when you search for something. I will keep changing this announcement as we adapt to these new changes. It's a pain, I know, but after looking around the backend for a bit, I believe the benefits will far, far outweigh the current irritation. They changed things in a hamhanded way and I don't like that, but I can't do anything about it. Benefit-wise, they actually did a good job, so please bear with us. In addition to this change, many good things are coming over time. You are the reason OL exists and I am sorry you have to go through this. Think of it like birth pangs... (All right, all right, that's forcing it.  ) Michael

Here is one of the most important links I have ever found Just a wonderful video.

You neglected to tell why to actually watch this? Now, as a courtesy to you and since the video is short, I'll watch it and report in an after-edit to my name.

video: in the context of the "golden age" of MTV and on a scale of 1-5, I'd give this video a 2 or 2.5, meaning, I don't think it's worth watching more than once.

link: what link?

Excellent song. I also like everything by the British group, Simply Red.

No rick rolling is bad

Rickrolling is an Internet meme[1][2] involving the music video for the 1987 Rick Astley song "Never Gonna Give You Up". The meme is a bait and switch; a person provides a hyperlink seemingly relevant to the topic at hand, but actually leads to Astley's video. The link can be masked or obfuscated in some manner so that the user cannot determine the true destination of the link without clicking. Persons led to the music video are said to have beenrickrolled. Rickrolling has extended beyond web links to playing the video or song disruptively in other situations, including public places,[2] like a surprise appearance of Astley himself in the 2008 Macy's Thanksgiving Day Paradein New York.[1] The meme has helped to revive Astley's career.[3]

They do Rick rolling on black hat sites I sometimes go to.

They'll say here is a link to a secret Google exploit you can use to send traffic through the roof, but you gotta act fast before Google finds out and fixes it, or something like that, then you click and get ole' Rick doing his thing.

I have been rolled at least five times (and those are the ones I remember).

:smile:
