Good Morning!

All hail, the “Z” key is back along with additional functionality we had with Chorus. I’ve been doing things around the house and therefore mostly lurking today but I did try out the “Z” key in the testing group on my laptop and on mobile and found it to be a worthy addition.

I case your forgot about all the former shortcuts, here they are:
Here’s a quick summary:

  • Z – go to next unread comment
  • shift-A – mark all comments that have loaded as ‘read’
  • C – go to the next comment, regardless of if it’s new or not
  • shift-C – go to the previous comment
  • control-B – add/remove bold text in the comment you’re writing
  • control-I – add/remove italic text in the comment you’re writing

Meanwhile we’ll carry on with our news and links open thread full of crockpot recipes, nap strategies and beer recommendations; drop by for some fan wisdom, snark and it’s weekend eve, almost time to fire up the smoker and watch the Vikings win on Sunday.

Again, we all know the rules, but in case someone is new:
-No discussion of politics or religion
-No feeding of the trolls
-Leave the gender hatred at the door
-Keep the bad language to a minimum (using the spoiler tags, if you must)
-Speaking of which, if discussing a newer show or movie, please use spoiler tags
-No pictures that could get someone fired or in serious trouble with their employer
-If you can’t disagree in a civil manner, feel free to go away
-While navigating the open thread, just assume it’s sarcasm.
With that, the beer light is on and the bar is open. Belly up & tie one on. Don’t forget to tip the cows, watch out for that guy behind the plexiglass and Welcome Aboard!
