Fark. CT scans, wonky markers, parathyroid tests... I'm going along with all of you to your follow-ups, as long as our dear lioness isn't hungry. (She promised she has sworn off otter meat.) Can lions retract their claws, like smaller kitties? (Please please.)
The overall color of my BCO Board pages is a faint beige today. I think it might be slightly darker than the off-white I saw yesterday, but maybe it's just my eyes adjusting. It isn't bad. I think the top of each page is a terrible waste of space, though. Lots of helpful stuff (links, login, etc.) that used to be there is gone.
Two things I don't understand: everybody is complaining about wasted space on the left side of the page, and a poorly-placed navigation bar. There is no empty space on the left side of my screen, or on the right either. The text runs from edge to edge (fitting nicely, actually). The lines are too wide for my eyeballs, and I find myself needing to turn my head to read across the page, but that's sometimes as much exercise as I get before lunch. Where are you finding the nav bars, though? Can anyone offer a screen shot? (ha ha) I have no nav bars on my page -- just a breadcrumb trail at the top of the page, as we've always had.
I do hate the "Recommended Articles." Is there any way, yet, to turn off that feature entirely? I figured out how to delete them: move each one to your "Archive", and then use the "Delete" button there to vaporize each one permanently. It's pathetic that we have to move and delete each article individually, rather than selecting the ones we want to move/delete (checkbox?) and messing only with those. Or, why not a global "Empty Archive" function? Receiving "Recommended Articles" based on the entries in my "Diagnosis" and "Treatment" pages creeps me out. I want to opt out (or never have opted in). Most of the articles are totally irrelevant, anyway.
B*tch b*tch b*tch. This has taken my mind off the fact that my MIL is in the hospital again, since Monday. She told the medical staff, her best friend, and her home aide team, that they were NOT to call dh to tell him where she was. We figured it out when she didn't answer the phone in her apartment all day yesterday. We called her best friend, who spilled the beans. WTF??? (There's more, but I'd rather fuss about the BCO page formatting because it's less stressful.)
