Quick Questions

Postby plwk » Mon Mar 04, 2013 7:53 am

Dearest Admins/Mods,

a. Is this blue thingy a permanent feature for here?
b. Where is the chat room option located?
c. Where is the usual link to the sister site, Dharma Wheel?

Many thanks in advance.
Bhikkhus, if you develop and make much this one thing,
it invariably leads to weariness, cessation, appeasement, realization and extinction.
What is it? It is recollecting the Enlightened One.
If this single thing is recollected and made much,
it invariably leads to weariness, cessation, appeasement, realization and extinction.

This made me ask: is craving for dhamma wheel good? :P

I like the blue theme better, save yourself some work and let it stand :)
In reading the scriptures, there are two kinds of mistakes:
One mistake is to cling to the literal text and miss the inner principles.
The second mistake is to recognize the principles but not apply them to your own mind, so that you waste time and just make them into causes of entanglement.

Hmmm, the blue is more calming, but I prefer the usernames and avatars being on the left (super-picky) :)

The yella and the orange will be back shortly while we work out the glitches. We had to make a temporary revert back to the default template to get some other functions working again.



The other functions not working right now, including the tool bar, chat room, avatars back to the left, etc., will be fixed shortly too.

Is this a good opportunity to replace the boat wheel?

Just throwing that out there.
    "And how is it, bhikkhus, that by protecting oneself one protects others? By the pursuit, development, and cultivation of the four establishments of mindfulness. It is in such a way that by protecting oneself one protects others.

    "And how is it, bhikkhus, that by protecting others one protects oneself? By patience, harmlessness, goodwill, and sympathy. It is in such a way that by protecting others one protects oneself.

Actually i find the blue theme more pleasing to the eye than the yellow.

"Bhikkhus, there are these three kinds of clinging. What three? Clinging to the form, clinging to the forum and clinging to the form of the forum. When ignorance is abandoned and true knowledge has arisen in a bhikkhu, then with the fading away of ignorance and the arising of true knowledge he no longer clings to the form, no longer clings to the forum and no longer clings to the form of the forum."

A blue-toned DW would indeed be more soothing on the eyes and possibly the mind, imho.

I also prefer blue, but yellow/orange is also not too bad either.

Do we have a good recipe thread in which we might share favourite recipes we enjoy?

I would personally contribute many vegetarian recipes, although there would be a sub-category for those who still partake of meat....

If not, might I begin such threads...?

Thank you.
