Surprised I get to be the first one here.

Okay, maybe I should be semi-official. The Lounge is intended for friendly chatter, games, and ... well, anything that doesn't fit into the Opera-related forums but isn't against the rules. No spam, no hacks, no buying or selling stuff - the old timers should know the rules. (I don't work for Opera Software, but I am a moderator. As such I don't make the rules, I'm just restating what they were in the old forums.)

You can edit for 30 minutes - but you have to reload the page for the edit option to show. Yeah, needs work ...

Guys! Would you consider "voting" somehow here?

You have posted 2 times within 120 seconds. A spam block is now in effect on your account. You must wait at least 600 seconds before attempting to post again. Blah-blah-blah!..

Interesting situation. Some time ago I got nervous about a certain site, and went on to register an additional email. I found some mainstream service, registered there, but you know what? I completely forgot what service it was, while I perfectly remember my login words - name of my box (where? damn it;), "secret words";).. Just sayin'..:D

Oops! having hit here, I occurred at the top of this page - which is unusual.

So, Michael's here. Are you, Michael?
Now to the business. Unlike somewhere else, you can only edit your post during the first 30 minutes, and you can not delete it, so...
The designated 'Markdown' is functioning (take a look at the link at the bottom), but not entirely (you can check out feedback threads and/or tinker yourself). Editing is working with minor glitches, non-lethal...

What? Welcome! :coffee: :cheers:

I'm here. About that "DnD is dead" thingy: That's a wee bit premature. Things are a bit quiet at the moment, but it'll liven up soon enough. :alien:

Guys! If somebody of you is gonna start a thread right about one of these days, consider taking a look at this thread of Dave's: check out if you have the smilies dropdown button when creating your OP, etc. I don't think it's crucial for, say, life on Earth, but still;)

Hey, we have a Lounge!

While the Russian section doesn't.
So I call it here...

@sitnicoff

We do have a lounge, so I decided to invite you here to introduce you to something.
На Operaforums есть русскоязычная секция - ты можешь выбрать её в выпадающем меню в верхней части главной страницы напротив значка глобуса.
Next, you should state your system version and your browser version when you post a problem. Описывая проблему, упоминай версию операционки И версию Оперы - и будет тебе счастье:)
Well, учи английский и welcome here then, if you wish;)
:cheers:

Mikey "the Spirit" has recently been feeling not well. Now admitted to a hospital nearby *. Alive and kicking, the friend saying.

Within my clumsy English, which is not my native language (this is the Portuguese) let me say that I felt affected by the news. Still because of be from another language, It remains still the possibility that I did not understand correctly, but I'll risk it and already express my best wishes for excellent recovery You resonates in me as a rare person, of good will and good humor, regardless for me to be not seeing and sharing coexistence with you, I "KNOW" this. You impart it. Such as Dave.

Quinca, it's Michael the Chicagoan, USA. Sent him another letter the other day...
They're saying that he's getting a treatment, but... You know...

Grateful. Somehow, I can't deny I felt a certain relief that God will allow me. I thought it was yourself. Remain my best wishes now to him. As remain my assessments about you and Dave.

Hi Lincoln. I'm very sorry to be the one to tell you, but Mike passed away this last week. He very rapidly went downhill between Friday and Tuesday and then passed away early Wednesday morning.

Condolences. Death, after love, is the word most misunderstood by humanity. Paul Brunton, mentioned without quotation marks because it is not the original text, quoted from memory.

Happy V-Day!

Michael's father was in the military, in the engineering. He came to fight in Europe in 1944. Let's commemorate the braves! Watched "The Science of D-Day" yesterday - the author (presenter), a young Brit, was saying the worst things he would've thought about in his teenagehood weren't comparable to the realities of those young soldiers approaching Normandy at that day.

I'm not sure any of us who haven't personally been through such times can ever fully grasp the fear - and bravery - of the generation that lived through (and in so many cases, died in) that war. To those of that generation who put their lives on the line literally, be all honor.
