if you seek an image of the most Wisconsin OL ever, enter here
Small update this morning that gives you the option to have all images that are too wide for their container to be automatically resized. This should prevent images from flooding over into the MGoBoard list, and other lists, on the right side of the page if they're huge.
I'll be working on getting it togglable (not sure that's a word) so that you can have the convenience of reasonable sized images with the ability to blow them up as big as you want.
Once again, the link to the extension is https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/plgbhpppodkjceilgjeepcjbjdamknld
Previous information about what else it can do is here: http://mgoblog.com/mgoboard/ultra-mgoboard-v15. My apologies for the gigantic Denard picture, I was using it to test the current version. (However, if you install it, Denard will be brought down to a more manageable size.)
Since OT is okay again, I thought I would return to this forum's second favorite subject. As I sit tonight cleaning my old irons for selling (Rawlings Oversize Pure Gold, 3-SW, knicks and scratches but in great shape, $50 if interested), I am sipping on a Kirkland Signature Hefeweizen. It is very good.
For those unaware, Kirkland is Costco's in store brand, and unlike most in store brands, their stuff is usually just as good, if not better than the competition. So, when I saw that they were now selling beer, I decided to take a chance.
First, like most things Kirkland brand, it is EXTREMELY reasonably priced at about $20 for 24 longnecks. At about .90 cents per bottle, this beats out any other craft brew I've seen by a dime, and most by 25 or more cents. The 24 case came with 4 six packs of their four craft brews, Hefeweizen, Pale Ale, Amber Ale, and a German Style Lager.
Each is equally well represented, a good simple example of that type of ale or lager without having an exceptionally distinct character. The Pale Ale, for instance is very good with a pronounced bitter hopiness, but it is not a Bell's Two Hearted. For the cost, if you have a costco membership, you relly can't go wrong. Pricewise, it's closer to Bud, but drinking wise, it's closer to your favorite craft.
EDIT: Preferred user highlighting works! Now you can choose all those users you want to stick out from the crowd and have their posts listed with yellow headers instead of blue!
I'm actually happy with how this looks/works now. Head to this link to download the new and improved Ultra-MGoBoard v1.4, previously (as in yesterday) known as MGoRestrict. You will need Google Chrome to be able to install it.
- Hide all negative posters
- Hide all positive posters (Useful if you're looking for some laughs. This was suggested by .ghost. and I like the idea. Could be helpful for mods scouring for active trolls as well I guess...)
- Indicate removed posts. This is the biggest improvement over the previous version. You can now see the title/username of a removed post in red, and clicking will show/hide the post. Nice for situations where you're curious what someone did to deserve their epic negbang.
- Removing individual posters from the blacklist. Now you don't have to clear the entire list and reenter everyone but the person you want to remove.
Things I want to add yet:
- Highlighting of preferred users. This would make it easier to scan through a thread and find stuff from Brian, TomVH, etc. This might actually be more helpful than being able to block people.
- Insert a button to add someone to the blocklist from within the thread.
- And brianc500, I'll keep thinking about ways to autoposbang Lloyd Brady posts, or at least indicate them so you can find them to posbang them on your own.
It still needs some sprucing up, but it's actually pretty useful. As usual, questions/comments/suggestions are welcome.
It's late on a Friday (well Saturday now I guess), and though I'm trying my hardest to get the girlfriend up to date on South Park (ugh she's on season four) she's fallen asleep with the promise of an early alarm clock. So here I am with my beer and missing the open threads of just a few nights ago.
My MGoDrink for the moment is Goose Island's Honkers Ale. First night with it, and it is not disappointing. Anyone else having anything noteworthy? Or have enough of something to make it noteworthy?
Yesterday I posted a GreaseMonkey script to hide negative users. After poking around, I found out that Chrome extensions were a much better way to go.
It's not pretty, but if you download the file, click it to install, and add some folks to the block list, they will be conveniently hidden from your view.
Notes: Only enter the portion of the user's name that is displayed, including any "..." if it's abbreviated. Usernames are grabbed straight from the displayed page. Also, clicking "Clear Blocked" will remove all entries.
You have a checkbox to hide all negative posters if you'd like as well.
Like I said, it's incredibly raw. Suggestions welcome.
Edit: It's hosted with all the real Google Chrome Extensions now...
Another edit: Cleaned up the look a little bit, made it more MGoBloggy. Also added an option for indicating where a post has been hidden with a red box. Especially nice so that you don't think someone is cussing out an innocent bystander.
I for one have been relegated to heavy drinking to keep my sanity during these past two weeks. For me its been mostly wine and jager. Just curious to see what everyone else has been tossing back these past few two weeks.
