Meta: Basic HTML for Posting is Gone

Submitted by Zone Left on February 18th, 2011 at 3:41 PM

I just searched for ShockFX's Basic HTML for Posting, and it's coming up as "Page Not Found." I understand that most of the tools are now available in the toolbar, but images, for example, seem to turn out better using the HTML coding instead of the toolbar.

Any help?

I realize that the great MGoMeltdown created endless headaches and necessitated multiple changes for the site, but I'm wondering if the "new" button is a permanent victim of that unfortunate IT nightmare?  Maybe it will just take a bit longer to reappear, but the "new" button/tag sure makes skimming through the comments a lot easier.  Am I alone on this?

Satchel's BBQ just opened up today at 11 and I just got back.  It isn't the best BBQ in the world but it is the best BBQ in the area.  Ive been to the BBQ place in Pinkney and Fenton and this is much better.  Its next to the Whole Foods on Washtenaw

edit- so the roommate just got back from work and he stopped there on his way and said that it was dry and only ok.  I was there 7 miutes after they opened so that might be the reason, its no excuse though, if you want to be considered good BBQ you have to provide quality food throughout the day.  Still, it was really tender and juicy in the morning

MGoDroid App?

MGoDroid App?

Two-Part Question:

1. Does anyone know if there's something in the works for an MGoDroid app? I see stuff for the iPhone and the kindle store but I haven't been able to find anything for the android platform. I'm a droid homer and this makes me sad.

2. I've been toying with the idea of downloading the SDK for android (mainly to play around with creating apps for my rooted nook) and developing an MGoBlog app would kind of be a fun little pet-project for me to start out with. What kind of demand would there be for something like this? Do we have many Android users out there?

OT: UM graduation rates

OT: UM graduation rates

I found this article today outlining the top 25 schools in four-year graduation rates.  Somewhat unsurprisingly, U of M  makes the top 10 public universities.  Strangely absent are Michigan State or Ohio State.  

http://moneywatch.bnet.com/saving-money/blog/college-solution/top-25-state-universities-for-graduating-on-time/4373/

Some highlights:

  • UM is ranked 8th, with 70% of incoming students graduating in four years
  • The national average four year graduation rate is a lowly 27%
  • Only 57% of students graduate in SIX years

Just thought I would share with you all yet another reason why U of M is a great place, and I hope this brightens your Sunday Morning (afternoon).

Anyone having anything good? I'm currently tasting most of the Bell's output plus I've had a bit of Crown Royal with Coke and grenadine. Anyone having anything decent? Or a ton of something indecent? Talk about whatever MGoDrinking you've done tonight here.

Awesome stories will be +1'd on sight.
