Is that Vladi in the background?

It is. An underlying theme with these and the site's look is current and past Wings. So, in future versions, expect to see Yzerman, Sawchuk, Howe, Lindsay, Abel, et al in addition to current Wings. They'll always be 1+1 (so, as an example, Yzerman will highly likely be present on a Zetterberg one, Howard with Sawchuk, etc.).


#2041294 October Schedule Wallpaper Now Available!

Time for a new season, time for the new edition of LetsGoWings.com's schedule desktop wallpapers!

I'm still eye deep in development on the new LGW web site (getting close now!), but I wanted to make sure these weren't held up. Keep in mind that the new site will have an all-new file download system and once it's live the links to the different resolution wallpapers will be broken on the forums until I can fix it. Most, if not all, of you will have it already downloaded by then, anyway. ;)

This month's featured player is Nicklas Lidstrom. I've also added additional screen resolutions this season, and I'm planning on also offering more once the main site is back up (think: HDTV formats, iPad, etc.).

Enjoy!

Hey, I'm still upset we had to trade Mike Knuble for a 2nd rounder to the Rags back in the day or lose him on waivers. But hell, at least we got something for him! :lol:

#2010607 Bob Probert passes away at 45

If it's allowable, can someone make a new top banner with Probert photos for LGW? I have no skill in these things.

Done. :boxing:


#2000889 Forums Upgraded (minor tinkering remains)

Posted by Matt on 17 June 2010 - 06:12 PM

No webmaster wants to hear this, but the net is so much nicer with AdBlock Plus installed. Available for Firefox and Chrome.

No, considering this site helps support my family. This place isn't a money-grab for me -- it pays bills (including those it creates). I dislike ads just as much as the next guy, but without the necessarily evil this site certainly wouldn't exist. Your support is appreciated.

(Apologies for the gruffness, but this is a severe sore point with me.)


Back on topic: The fixed skin will be up tonight!


#2000102 Forums Upgraded (minor tinkering remains)

Posted by Matt on 15 June 2010 - 11:48 PM

As you've noticed, we're blue again. ;) It's an unfortunate byproduct of the upgrade process that will require some CSS and template bit updating over the next day or so. However, the forums ARE upgraded to the latest version, so you may notice some changes here and there and there'll be some new features I'll be unveiling as the forum template is repaired.

The Gallery and Chat functions have also been upgraded as well.

Thanks for your patience!

#1984572 Prayers and Well Wishes for Matt

Posted by Matt on 13 May 2010 - 12:00 PM

Thank you, all of you, from the bottom of my heart for all the well wishes. I AM home from the hospital now recovering from a bout of Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever -- yeah, I had the same reaction, too -- that left me laid up in Beaumont Hospital Royal Oak for over a week.

Plenty of times I felt like a patient on House -- apparently cases of this illness are extremely rare (only 800 Americans get diagnosed with it a year) -- as I had at least a dozen different doctors and infectious disease specialists looking at me during my stay. It appears as though I fell victim to a tick bite sometime two weeks ago as I ventured back home and helped plant around 175 saplings in my parents' wooded area behind the house. About a week after that I started to get an intense fever and ultimately broke out in red spots everywhere (palms, arms, legs, feet -- everywhere). That and a fever hitting 102.9F freaked me out sufficienly enough to get me into the ER.

There it seemed the primary worry was meningitis, so I went through the battery of tests for that (CT scan, xrays, standard blood/urine tests) -- even the dreaded lumbar puncture. Yes, they are horrible. I didn't have the stiffness in the neck or other classic meningitis symptoms, which left a lot of people stumped.

After I was admitted my fever continued to rise, spiking at around 104.5F sometime mid-last week. I was on a cooling blanket for a large portion of that time while I was fed a steady supply of antibiotics. Basically, Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever had come into focus because all of the tests I'd undergone basically ruled everything out.

I started turning the corner over the weekend (the biggest hurdle was managing my own temperature without the assistance of the cooling blanket) and after a few days of that (and some improving lab results) I was discharged around noon on Tuesday.

Naturally this whole thing has left me embarassingly weak. For the first four days of the illness I was unable to sleep and had to be put on pain and sleep meds just so my body could get some semblence of rest. I'm going to spend the next few days trying to ramp my strength back up and hopefully things will return to normal.

I do have to say that I'm thankful I didn't decide to Wikipedia this illness while I was still admitted. I really didn't have any idea how serious this whole thing was (or could've been), but the bevvy of "Jesus, Matt, you really scared the crap out of us" comments I've heard now that I've been home have really shed some light on this whole thing.

Of course, it was painful watcing the the Wings' ultimate playoff demise while laid up in a hospital, but I did give some of the nurses a good laugh with my constaint pained "yyyesssss!" and totally weak fistpumps during the first period of Game 4. They all thought I was in pain but I had to grimace out a "nooo... I'm happ-pppy!" :lol:

Again -- thank you to ALL OF YOU -- for your patience and well wishes. I'll be back to 100% shortly!
