Bunny pony request Am I the only bunny who keeps losing my MeCha connection when I click on a link? If I do that at MetaFilter or most sites, a new tab opens in my browser. If I do it on MetaChat, the link opens in MeCha's stead.
Merely a website consumer, not a computer science type here, but I wondered if maybe opening links in a new tab could be a special pony request?
I always wondered what the bunny was for Seriously, I didn't know you could make desktop shortcuts from those icons. From the time they came out, however many years ago until now, I thought they were just logos...

Lucky Us LT and I got to meet EssexJan and some of her OH family this week. We had a wonderful time (her cooking prowess is not overhyped) including a micro-meetup with us and initapplette. Been a long time since we met a new bunny, and it sure was fun.
