Re: New Board Look?

Can we get the ability to change our board styles? This new theme is hideous to me. I assume this is phpbb3 now, I would love the ability to use subsilver2 (default phpbb3 style).

Re: Anyone here have Fios internet and/or TV?

Its true, there is a battery backup. Where the fiber meets the box on the side of your house they drill a hole straight though you wall to run cables to the battery backup which is hung on the other side of the wall (inside the house or garage).

I guess the idea is to have 1 person overseas working 2 or more restaurants? I don't see how this would make any scene otherwise scene the bottle neck of the fast food line is delivering the food, not taking the order. And then they will give you the wrong bag anyway
