on the other hand...

After some hours of increasing boredom and frustration last night, I came up with my new favorite metaphor for testing something one has newly installed.

Smacking the baby. That is, just as a newly born baby is cruelly smacked into crying so we can be reassured it's okay (I don't even know if that still happens, but fact is irrelevant here), anything that you've just installed must be vigorously interacted with before you can know it's working. Thus, all my test comments amounted to "smack!" and "waaaaaah".

Eh, maybe you had to be there. I thought it was damn funny.

Also, I think phpbb is the answer.
