    A colleague pointed me to The visual history of Reddit's source which was generated using Gource.

    So I ran the program over the boards.ie git repository. Here it is for your viewing pleasure:

    Never let it be said that Boards.ie was ever in a state of non-development. If anything the video is yet another demonstration of the effect you and Ross had on the site. It was like a game of space invaders in there from mid 2009 onwards, Ross was a bit lonely before that :D

    Haha, it looks like I went into shock shortly after Conor arrived; he banged into a bunch of experimental modutils stuff and I just sorta poked at the CSS/JS and watched :D

    Site didn't just disappear when hacked.

    If you check around 21st - 22nd of January 2010 you'll see it in action.

    In a nutshell it is a video representation of data from our logs. The logs keep a record of who edited files and when they were edited. So you can see how boards has grown over the last few years :)

Rich Text Editor. To edit a paragraph's style, hit tab to get to the paragraph menu. From there you will be able to pick one style. Nothing defaults to paragraph. An inline formatting menu will show up when you select text. Hit tab to get into that menu. Some elements, such as rich link embeds, images, loading indicators, and error messages may get inserted into the editor. You may navigate to these using the arrow keys inside of the editor and delete them with the delete or backspace key.
