Daylight Savings Time on the forums

Just thought I'd let everyone know, you can go to https://70thexplorers.com/board/ucp.php?i=165 and enable Daylight Savings Time (and verify your time zone). That way the timestamps on the forums will show the proper time. And in case you missed it, this was the weekend to move your clocks ahead one...

Re: Disney to buy Lucasfilm - Episode 7 due in 2015

I'm really interested in what they're planning for Ep 7. Is it going to be Lucas's original idea set 20-30 years after or something closer to the books. They could do Thrawn or the Yuuzhan Vong series! Granted, 20+ books in Yuuzhan Vong so they'd have to REALLY consolidate that. I think the entire ...

Re: Halloween parade in STL 10/27/12

I've been to this before. This night time party is pretty fun. It's usually crowded too. FYI, it's change outside by your car though (unless you're lucky enough to have a costume you can drive in).

Re: Planet ComiCon moving to Bartle Hall

Last convention was over-crowded for sure. But a lot a things contributed to that. There were a lot a big name guests and the weather was awesome. Can't control the weather, but if they continue booking lots of popular guests, a move would be good.

Re: A new milestone...

So am I the Garrison's first 5-digit number? In fact you are! I had to change our database to make room for your extra digit, so you're officially beta testing the new code. Lemme know if anything looks wonky on the 70th web site where your number is concerned. No problems with the ID that I've see...
