I don't know whether that's a regular feature, or if it's just for the coolest kids, but I just noticed the birthday cake icon next to Cubs' name on a post. Didn't happen to notice it on the board heading, but it absolutely caught my eye next to the posting! I like it.
I couldn't help but notice the posting date of the new Welcome message:
Welcome... -- Posted by Guru Zim on 23.1.02 2003
Apparantly Guru isn't light years ahead of us, after all - he's just ONE year ahead of us. Still, that ain't so bad.
