BRC is about creating and experiencing rituals. Rituals are a repeated act.

ok, i changed the image link in my post. not for "fear of being sued for linking to a publically accessible image", but out of respect for the person not being the target of the "flame throwing" in this thread.

One of the problems with this suggested re-design is that it doesn't bring us any closer to finding out "who are the litterbugs?" "who is stealing?" If there's a massive party going on in "sex town" that attracts 50% of the people from "rave town" - how do you account for who left the trash? And whi...

I installed the software and like the idea, but there's one reason I'm going to now remove it: It constantly grinds away on my hard drive even though there is no new content being download. Very annoyning to be in other room and here my hard drive mashing away until I come and stop the screen saver....
