As part of our ongoing efforts to improve forum performance, we will be migrating to new servers within the week (perhaps on the weekend). Once we finalize the actual date and time, a notice will be posted here at least 4 hours prior to "go time". We expect a fairly long maintenance period of approximately 1-2 hours during the move.
The move to new servers is happening tonight at somewhere around 1amMIDNIGHT EST. There will be a significant period of downtime (30 minutes to 2 hours). Wish us luck!
Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
Toilet flushed in reverse! What do I do with the tank?
After this morningâ€™s bowel movement I flushed the toilet and heard a loud clanking noise. I popped open the tank and realized that while flushing, water from the bowl somehow splashed up into the tank! Repeated flushings are slowly getting the brown mess out, but Iâ€™m pretty sure that I need to really scrub it out to keep it from becoming a breeding ground for stink. Whatâ€™s the best way to handle this? Can I drain the tank and wash it out with lysol? Or do I need to be drastic and remove the tank, clean it with bleach, and replace the mechanical parts?
