I'm with ya...

Will take some time to "digest," but this is clearly going to be HUGE. Not sure people have any idea the diverse crowd this place is going to draw.

I was going to suggest that he have, if technically possible, a way to "follow" or "subscribe" to individual members so that you can automatically see what they've posted, but you kind of can by clicking on someones history... i like that too.

Agreed!

Been lurking since the split from zero-hedge, glad to finally have an account and be a participant! Looks fantastic in the first 30 seconds :), look forward to digging around.

YouTube Link?

When hitting the play button it pulled me from this page onto Youtube, is it just me?

Youtube

Same thing happened to me. Maybe there is a licensing issue preventing embedding for that particular clip. Let's try one I'm pretty sure works embedded:

Non-Newtonian Fluid on a Speaker Cone

Edit: Yep, that one works for me. So that particular video is probably just restricted.

Re: YouTube page pull

xaritas, I get the "Not available at this time" error message in yours, which prolly means it's working in my browser's No Script settings. ;-)

The video Turd posted on the front page gave the error and then pulled me to the page (unlike atlee's. /head scratcher

Thanks for the look-see!

Glad to be here

Wow, this is amazing . I've been excited about this for a long time but didn't expect anything like this. Been around since day 1, checking in daily but didn't have a way to sign in the old blog. Good to have a straight registration on here.

This is going to be some site. Now to go and hat tip the folks who I've been reading but never replied to for the last few months.

Thanks Turd!

Been reading but haven't been able to post at the old site. This is my name at ZH if any of you are familiar. Glad to be here and finally able to interact with you folks! :)

Turd's video originally took you to the page because it was wrapped with a hyperlink. The easiest way to post videos on the site is to just copy and paste the URL from YouTube. Don't turn it into a hyperlink... just let it do it's magic and convert it to a video player.

For those using No Script settings, you might want to add a separate hyperlink. ;-)

thumbs up

and a hat tip for the Stones tune. I've never seen Ronnie Wood on slide guitar. Cool!

BTW, I count 116 topics going already. In a couple hours? WTF? ;o)

The opening of this site

The opening of this site today reminds me of the big reveal at the end of Extreme Home Makeover when the family runs in the house and goes bat shit crazy.

I bet Turd is having the time of his life sitting back and watching all us hooligans running amok and pushing buttons. I know I am. Classic stuff. Good day to be here.

Kudos Turd and y'all don't get fingerprints on the plasma!

This one is for Atlee...

admin needs a badass alias

...any suggestions? The Man with the Yellow Hat just doesn't sound authoritative enough...cheeky

Furious George, on the other hand:

Thanks to Turd & team for the outstanding effort AND results. Will try not to abuse the right/privilege of posting graphics, but it 's hard not to get carried away. The one below works very well for me for many situations, but especially for PMs & silver.

It's also good to see so many articulate ZH denizens - the early days are much fun. It's also amazing to see so many heretofore 'silent' readers come forth and comment.
