We did! July 1st and 4th. Didn't you see the fireworks?

Well, there was some fog over the Atlantic those days, and I couldn't see much - could you repeat them?

Which ones, the real fireworks, or the fake ones CBS showed? http://articles.boston.com/2011-07-08/ae/29752504_1_fireworks-show-quincy-market-footage

Clearly in this day and age of live video editing, photoshop and CGI, there is no truth to the phrase "photographic/video evidence".

I was going to comment that this wouldn't be fair, but then I had a look and I'm on the first page, so sod the rest of you P.A.R.T.Y :-) :-)

Unlike some of my fellows who got unknown reputation events boosting them 300 and 500 points, I'm still inching my way towards that status but I'll pull a "Salahi" and crash the party!

Interesting...if someone up votes a comment and converts it to an answer, reputation does not go up. I'm assuming that's what Breck just did. Breck: why did you convert the comments to answers?

Maybe because it's not really a proper question, so all comments are really answers ?

(08 Jul '11, 16:46) Daz Liquid

...because I liked them! :)

Hmmm... converting an upvoted comment to an answer should increase reputation. Must investigate. Note also that converting an upvoted answer to a comment will reduce reputation.

Just to add: I noticed the same behaviour (votes on comments converted to answers don't count) on this answer. Only the third vote seems reputation-relevant, and that vote came after the conversion. But no big deal:)

Maybe Graeme can re-assign you some of Bruce's reputation...or Josh's for that matter.

So the famous Bruce has retired?

(12 Jul '11, 03:02) Volker Barth

Sadly (Happily? Depends if you're him or not), yes. But maybe he'll still troll the forums when/if he gets bored. Who knows?
