Conversations It seems that every time I try to use a "wink" ( ;) ) smilie, it shows up as a "big grin" ( ;) ) graphic in the post.

I rely heavily on careful application of the winks to clarify when I'm being mildly sarcastic or making an amusing comment, now it just looks like I'm laughing at everyone. Aside from utterly destroying my artistic flow, I'm concerned that I will inadvertently start flame wars left and right, when no true offense is intended.

This concerns me gravely. ;)

Conversations They just come up as
now, instead of the fancy eye candy we had before in v4.

Not complaining, just wondering. ;)

Conversations The "Lenovo to Sell Laptops..." thread is littered with php error messages:

Parse error: parse error in /home/osnews/www4/templates/ on line 68

Seems to have just cropped up recently.

Also, on an unrelated note, I was going to send this privately using the optional form on the "Contact" site, but when I tried the link, the page simply reloaded, albeit with ?mode=form appended to the url (using Opera).

Just a head's up.

Conversations Not sure if it's just me, but in many of the current threads, I keep running into an error when viewing:

Fatal error: Maximum execution time of 30 seconds exceeded in /home/osnews/www4/includes/ on line 60

I'll select the comments on a story, there will be a delay, and then a portion of the comments will print with that message at the bottom. Looks like it's server side so I assume it's not a problem with my browser, but then in this ajax/web2.0 world, who knows?

Using the legacy OSNews site shows no problems?

edit: WTF is with the full justification on this post???

Conversations What's with the frequent requests for a "torrent link, please", it seems like there's one on every story even when the story has nothing to do with a particular software package? Is this some new annoying trend I'm unaware of?
