Hey guys. I am the creator of Pennypacker. Things seem to be getting a bit out of hand of late. I think this can be fixed though.
Requiring a username / email address before allowing people to tag and revoking tagging rights to those who have their tags consistently trashed may help somewhat. I will work to put these safeguards in place. It does kind of suck that we even need these, but hey, that's life.
Hey everyone, ans, creator of Pennypacker here again.
I'm afraid I've decided to discontinue this project. I thought this would be a useful and collaborative tool, and in many ways it has been, but the simple fact is certain users have insisted on making this difficult and I just don't have the time or energy to constantly keep one step ahead of them. I regret having to do this, but keeping this going costs me time and money in bandwidth and it just isn't worth it if these users are going to keep destroying everything I work towards.
I've discovered that the two biggest abusers are Yourhero88 and Ramsden, through the various user names they've created to defame each other. While the events of the past few days were by no means the efforts of these two alone, they were the biggest contributors to the problem.
If you have anything to say about the discontinuation of this project, I suggest you take it up with them.
I think this thread is proof in and of itself why I don't want to continue working on this project.
Anyone who wants to try to continue the project is free to take up the reigns, but I'm deleting all the content on the server at 5 PM today. If you want to save all the tags, you should back up everything currently there and sort out all the bad stuff later.
Is there anyone out there who will step up and save the tags?
pfft, like anyone uses that
After I downloaded Firefox and spent an hour trying making it look/work like Safari I realised it wasn't really worth it

When I was on Safari I shot an elephant in my pajamas.
Safari is a browser made by Apple.
Seriously, it's really nice
Imagine if Safari and Firefox had a baby

My stepdad used to drive an El Camino.

I only recently bothered installing an adblock, so I'm good.
Camino is too busy looking.
And I used to drive on El Camino
and I probably will again in the future!
what a crazy coincidence
Or the purpose for that matter.
Opera is better than everything. One of three fully CSS2 standards-compliant browsers available.
I love that joke, thanks Centi.
My morning, it has been made.
your justification that it is better is because it has the same feature as two other browsers?
Well the other two are built on the Konquerer rendering engine from Apple. And I'm childish enough to not like something because it comes from there.
I also like the built in e-mail / feed reading features which are nicer designed / implemented than ones I've seen for FF / IE / Safari, the download system is the best I've seen from any browser, mouse-gestures straight out of the box, really easy toolbar customisation, page feature blocking, a really useful zoom, widgets built-in, easy access to turn css on / off or use a custom stylesheet, and other stuff.

so, hey, unrelated note - anyone know how to get a background color of a div object to change during a rollover?
though in vista IE finally starts to be sort of good
onMouseover = "this.style.background-color = '#FFFFFF';"
Something like that.
If you need to change it back to the regular color, make sure you do OnMouseOut
Taken from here:
Wouldn't oldcolor be destroyed when it goes out of scope?
In regards to Pennypacker, I think I remember the guys talking about it on the podcast when trying to find old comics. It's a shame if it goes away, but maybe they'll implement ohnorobot search, as someone else said.
