Nothing beats a Pa. snowstorm that relatively stops all traffic and allows yokels to take their UTVs out on the roads.... :D

A wild Ford Explorer appears.

It uses AWD... It's super effective!

Finally got some snow... Haven't put on the set of snow tires/wheels yet though... Was starting to think the white stuff forgot where I lived... nowhere near what you other guys are getting, only a few inches of the light fluffy stuff.

We received 5 inches of snow on Wednesday, and almost 10 inches on Saturday.

We got about 10" Saturday night. I took a video, but for some reason I can't embed it here? :dunno:

Has YouTube changed something?

Happy New Year. :party:

It's actually been a part of vBulletin for quite a while. It is just quite a lot to memorize all the various BBcodes.

Also, Happy New Year to you as well.

Also, that isn't my video, it was just a random one I grabbed off youtube to demonstrate, so I can't take credit. I had actually forgotten that Rick made a how-to post on this until just now.

I always used the "embed" link on the YouTube page and it has worked fine until recently. Now I know. Thanks again. :thumbsup:

Well, for what it's worth, I'm not happy with the functionality of a few of the changes to youtube... For instance, sometimes I have to tab over to go to the next song on a playlist manually after one finishes because for whatever reason it decides to stop autoplaying every 10 songs or so, and opening videos takes more resources than before, so sometimes it causes my netbook to hang for a second when a new video starts.
