Maybe you could start a conspiracy theory that it's like John 3:16 that you see on banners at sports stadiums :)

And lo, there was power and the forum didst come to light!

Or the countdown will finish, the board will reopen, and then about thirty seconds later it'll crash as it gets swarmed by hundreds upon hundreds of impatient tech people who have been wringing their hands in frustration for the past thirty minutes. It'll be the equivalent of the mall that opens on the day PS3 is released, only to have the clerk crushed beneath a stampede of angry gamers who are really grumpy from spending a week out in the snow in tents.

I was just wondering what the issue was.

Also, I just noticed my post count not rising??

Posting in here doesn't add to your post count.

It's a countdown to their next magnet football game.



You probably can't see it because you might have a proxy server cutting out the code; Proxomitron is one that can do it. It really does look like the code was cut out of your source.

Code: Select all

<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1" />
<title>phpBB &bull; Countdown to WHAT?</title>
</head>
<body style="background-color: #FFF´; text-align: center;">
<div style="width: 550px; margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;">
<object classid="clsid:d27cdb6e-ae6d-11cf-96b8-444553540000" codebase="http://fpdownload.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=8,0,0,0" width="550" height="400" id="countdown" align="middle">

</object>
</div>
</body>
</html>
EDIT: removed something I made Proxomitron put in for me ;)
