      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

Barbara's absence

Barbara's absence

I am very pleased (and relieved) to announce something Barbara asked me to announce.

She has been absent from OL for a while because she has been ill. She also has not been answering her emails because she has not been using her computer due to being in the hospital.

Well, folks, she's out of the hospital and back at home and much, much better. I will let her discuss the nature of the illness she had if she wishes since that is the polite thing to do, but I will say that it's nothing extreme like cancer.

She should be bopping around here before too long. (She told me she is raring to go to rip Obama a new one—my language of course, not her classy way of saying it. :) )

And most likely she will do some catching up on her emails.

I know we all have missed her.

Michael
