Site will be down for a few minutes tonight

Law School Discussion will be taken offline tonight for server maintenance.  It should only be 20 minutes - but you never know.  Just a warning.

Thanks for the heads up.  How much money are you making off that "higher lsat score guaranteed" kaplan ad?

It will depend on how many people click it and then sign up for Kaplan.  It's just an experiment right now - probably going to implement a sophisticated ad system to control that space.  I hope it's not too annoying.  Is it too annoying?

No, its not too bad.  This site is a lot less annoying regarding ads than other sites.  I think one well-placed ad is very legitimate.  Reminds me of the drudge report, which only uses one prominent ad.

Yeah - the chairs were a big (indeed!) experiment.  I didn't realize so many people still had smaller screen resolutions - and that was creating a horizontal scroll.  Thus, the new ad space is small so as to fit everyone's screen.

That Kaplan ad is the original standard banner size, which, at the time of its invention, went almost all the way across the viewer's screen.

I think the 20 minutes should have already happened - but maybe it's tonight (Tuesday).  I'm never really sure when people say something like "Tuesday at 12:00 AM".  In any social situation that would clearly mean Tuesday night, but in police reports and tech speak that probably means Monday night.

Oh, I didn't even look to see when you posted your message.   :-[

And thanks, sparky :)  It wouldn't be so bad if LSD went down for a while so I could concentrate on my apps :)
