|That would all depend on where on your body you're wearing the santa hat.|
The usual place, where it won't flop over so much.

|There would need to be some way to enclose everyone who could possibly observe you into one self contained system...|
That would be where my idea for consumer-grade portable black holes would come in handy. Just balance one above the door and when they open it.....

|I think I know of the mod you found, because I've actually seen it used on another board. It's for phpBB, right?|
No, I believe it was for Snitz Forums 2000. It's an ASP-based MB software package, free and very well supported by its community. It's the only one I've ever setup and adminned (and then just as a test at work).

|Horseflesh ||Well, your idea of a table matching threadids, userids, and date-timestamps is about the only server side solution I can think of. I did some poking around and found a mod for a free message board that says it does just what you described. Large (users & threads) MBs would notice a hit on performance whereas small ones would not.|
Most other mentions of "goto first unread post" capability for commercial MB software said that it used cookies to locally store visited threadids and timestamps. I'm not sure how this would work, though, if you were to browse the board from two different computers.

|Horseflesh ||Scientists perform "magic". (NYTimes.com article, not sure if it'll require a (free) login to read it)|
I thought this was a pretty interesting article. I've always loved the paradox and mystery of Shrödinger's Cat's thought experiment. Now a team has actually witnessed something (beryllium atoms in this case) in two opposite states at the same time.
Towards the bottom of the first page of the article it says that researchers are planning an experiment where a small mirror will be in two places at once. Finally, science with practical applications for the everyday Joe! I plan on using this technology to simultaneously be at work, spend a week in the Carribean, pole dance in an alien strip joint on a far away world, and rummage through dantheman's collection of other people's underwear.
I could also rack up a post count in the millions here in just a few seconds.

|Cool - should I send you the MySQL code that creates the DB? |
No, not yet. I'm still pondering. Had a busy day at work so the pondering started just a bit ago.

|[The indicator is based on when the thread was last posted to vs. when your last visit was.|
Ah, but it shouldn't. The Last Visit date-timestamp is set when I first come to the board and doesn't change until I leave the site and come back. While I'm cruising on the board it doesn't change, does it? Therefore the indicators wouldn't change either (which is what's happening now).
There shouldn't need to be a lookup table matching a "last read" date-timestamp for each thread for each user. That would be monstrous as the board ages. There has to be a more elegant, dynamic way to do it. I'm pretty good at designing databases so lemme ponder that for a bit.

|Horseflesh ||I was just gonna say we need an upside-down smiley until I realized that's what the dancing eueueq was. |
I'm a bit confoozed on the new post indicator graphics to the left of thread titles. I use the Castle skin and I *think* the yellow-green flags indicate new posts and orange-red flags mean no new posts. After I've read a thread with new posts the graphic indicators don't change even if I go to another forum and then back in. Unless I keep track of who posted last in a thread and when (in the rightmost column) I can't be sure I'm caught up in any particular one.

|Horseflesh ||I have seen one bit of weirdness when I edited my post that had a smiley in it. At the edit page it showed my post but all that was there was a part of broken html code pointing to the smiley (below where it shows the last 10 posts, at the edit textbox the code and post text looked normal). After edit the cool smiley was a broken graphic link. I re-edited and took the smiley out, then edited again to put it back in. Everything was kosher after that. I've only had this happen once to me.|
BTW, can we have an option to turn off smilies at the Add Reply page?

|Horseflesh ||I've never had a real homecooked pierogi, just ones I found in a vending machine where I used to work in SF.|
There were two different kinds: a meat one and a mashed potato one. The meat one was seasoned finely chopped hamburger (think taco meat) in a thick sauce (though not spicy), the mashed tato one was buttered mashed potatoes with onions. They were sealed up like Hot Pockets in a coccoon of thin bread crust. Yummy!
Never found them again in 15 years of searching vending machines.
