    New Post scroll position lost

    When I look at the new post list, I click a post, then go back to the list. The list will scroll back to the top instead of stay at the position of last post. Is there anyway to remember the scroll position of the last post I just viewed?

For folks want to us at home, noise is a major issue. Like me, many people put the gear in their living space. 40dBA is probably the...

    Joke/Mishap Thread - Post all your funny and shitty ideas/experiences/thoughts

    Yeah, money wise it doesn't make sense at all. In my area The power company doesn't support installation of solar panel on the roof. They buy back electricity at the wholesale price instead of retail price which makes solar installation doesn't make sense at all. However, even knowing this...
