What does this mean?



  • "this space left intentionally blank"

    Is this a joke or am I missing something? Because by having the quote there the space is no longer blank.

    ------------------



  • I'm guessing that was the default 'filler' message for the UBB software. You'll note that since the webboard was moved to Asgard, the new server, that message has now been replaced with information about Ambrosia Software's IRC server & official channels.

  • On most boards using this system, there's a company motto or something there. Andrew didn't have anything to put, so it was 'this space left intentionally blank.' There's something there now, though...

    If at first you don't succeed, use more duct tape.

    Actually, the moderators of the forum used to be there, but one day they moved up.

  • I thought it had to do with the "This Topic Left Intentionally Blank" joke.

    Taft's Law: "If 'pro' is the opposite of 'con,' then 'progress' is the opposite of 'congress.'"
    Norman's Household Hint: "Give me a home where the buffalo rome, and you've got a room full of buffalo chips."
    Canada Bill's Supplement: "A Smith & Wesson beats four aces."
    Westheimer's Rule: "To estimate the time it takes to do a task, estimate the time you think it should take, multiply by two, and change the unit of measurement to the next highest unit...thus we allocate two days for a one-hour task."



  • Can't you just type a single space in that area? That should sate that BB's appetite.
