        No. But I am trying to figure out what's up. I'm one of the vBulletin developers. I've put this site on a separate code base with some special tweaks so I can understand the problem.

                    Casting and creation

                    Melissa George received an invitation to meet the show's executive producers, Shonda Rhimes and Betsy Beers, from Grey's Anatomy '​s casting agents after they saw her recurring guest performances in the television drama In Treatment (2008).[9] George explained that after meeting with the producers, she was set to begin working.[9]
                    George's initial contract included eight to eleven episodes of recurring appearances, with the possibility of becoming a series regular.[10] However, according to George's representative, she did not intend to do more than eight episodes.[11] Harris was first planned to have a romance with Torres, but Rhimes eventually changed that after George started filming.[12] She was initially written as a lesbian, but was revised as bisexual.[9]
                    In January 2009, George confirmed her departure from Grey's Anatomy, and several reasons were cited for her leaving. George said she had decided to leave to pursue another project, and offered praise to the cast members.[10] However, a representative of the show claimed the actress' departure was due to a mutual agreement between Grey's Anatomy and George, explaining that the character's storyline "came to a natural end", but that everyone was upset with her departure.[10] Following Erica Hahn (Brooke Smith)'s departure, E! Online '​s Kristin Dos Santos asserted that Smith's dismissal from the show, and the rewrite of Harris' storyline, was enforced by the American Broadcasting Company (ABC), as part of an attempt to "de-gay" Grey's Anatomy,[13] but these claims were rebuked by Rhimes.[14]
                    Characterization

                    [9]

                    George's character has been described as "naughty" and "mischievous", as well as "nutty".[1][2] She added that Harris' sexuality is not the main aspect of her personality. George called her character "broken", and opined that her outgoing personality is meant to cover up something else.[1] George stated that the way she portrayed Harris was influenced by the outspokenness of Lisa Rowe, a sociopathic character from Girl, Interrupted (1999) played by Angelina Jolie.[15]
                    Peter Nowalk, one of the show's writers, characterized Harris as "quite a flirty gal".[16] Other Grey's Anatomy cast members have also commented on the character of Harris; Chandra Wilson stated that Harris is fast paced, whereas Leigh said that the character is there to "wreak havoc on Seattle Grace".[15] Entertainment Weekly '​s Michael Ausiello said that Harris is "an intern with an open mind towards sexuality".[17]
                    Debbie Chang, writing for BuddyTV, and Jonathan Toomey of The Huffington Post also cast ideas about Harris' self-incision in the episode "In the Midnight Hour", wondering if she "has a death wish"[18] and "what is wrong with her".[19] Stacy McKee, a primary writer for the show, said Harris is Meredith Grey's "pre-Cristina Cristina" and that she shares "a history with Meredith that Cristina can't".[20]

                      Philae '​s mission is to land successfully on the surface of a comet, attach itself, and transmit data from the surface about the comet's composition. An Ariane 5G+ rocket carrying the Rosetta spacecraft and Philae lander launched from French Guiana on 2 March 2004, 07:17 UTC and traveled for 3,907 days (10.7 years) to Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko. Unlike the Deep Impact probe, which by design struck comet Tempel 1's nucleus on 4 July 2005, PhilaeMartian magnetosphere. Most of the other instruments need contact with the surface for analysis and stayed offline during the flyby. An optimistic estimate of mission length is "four to five months".[13]
                      Scientific goals

                      The scientific goals of the mission focus on "elemental, isotopic, molecular and mineralogical composition of the cometary material, the characterization of physical properties of the surface and subsurface material, the large-scale structure and the magnetic and plasma environment of the nucleus."[14]
                      Landing

                      Philae remained attached to the Rosetta spacecraft after rendezvousing with comet until 12 November 2014. On 15 September 2014, ESA announced Site J, named Agilkia in honour of Agilkia Island by an ESA public contest,[16] on the "head" of the comet as the lander's destination.[17]Rosetta showed that the lander's cold-gas thruster was not working correctly, but the "Go" was given anyway, as it could not be repaired.[18][19] Philae detached from Rosetta on 12 November 2014 at 08:35 UTC, landing seven hours later at 15:35.[20][21] A confirmed landing signal was received at 16:03 UTC.[1][22]
                      An analysis of telemetry indicated that the landing was softer than expected, but that the harpoons had not deployed upon landing, and that the thruster had not fired.[23][24] The harpoons contained 0.3 grams nitrocellulose which were shown by Copenhagen Suborbitals in 2013 to be unreliable in a vacuum.[25] Further analysis indicated that the lander had bounced twice and landed three times; the first bounce lasted two hours and may have been one km high; the second lasted 7 minutes.[26][27] Philae sits askew on two legs, leaning on a rock in partial darkness as much as a kilometer from the first landing spot.[28][29]

                        New school is a tattooing style originating as early as the 1970s and influenced by some features of old school tattooing in the United States. The style is often characterized by the use of heavy outlines, vivid colors, and exaggerated depictions of the subject. New school also represents a transition towards openness in the sharing of techniques in tattooing. Origin

                        There are multiple accounts regarding how new school tattooing began. One account posits that California tattoo artists began experimenting with multiple design styles as early as the 1970s and included subject matter such as famous film actors, Disney characters, and even the USS Enterprise from Star Trek.[1] It is argued that during this time, new cultural designs came from the demands of customers, and less so from the inspiration of tattoo artists.[1]
                        Other accounts place the emergence of new school tattooing during the late 1980s[2] and 1990s.[3][4] Tattoo artist Marcus Pacheco is one artist recognized for popularizing new school tattooing early on.[3]
                        Characteristics

                        New school tattooing incorporates elements from many tattooing traditions including irezumi, old school, and folk art.[2][3] It is similar to old school tattooing in that they both generally employ heavy outlines.[5] In contrast to the restricted palette in old school,[5] however, new school tattoos frequently use a range of bright colors.[6][7] New school tattoos are not realistic in that they exaggerate details in the subject; they are sometimes compared to styles seen in cartooning,[8] graffiti art,[9] and themes seen in hip hop culture such as jagged edges and bubble letters.[10]
                        In terms of subject matter, new school tattoos are not restricted to traditional subjects (such as hearts and eagles).[11] They feature fantastical subjects,[12] novel patterns, and generally allow for a great deal of customization.[10] However, old school subjects are commonly done in a new school style as a way of expressing homage or irony.[13]
                        Changes in artist secrecy

                        New school is also considered to represent a transition in artists' attitudes towards sharing information on their work and techniques.[14] The craft of old school tattoos was often protected by artists during the 1970s and 1980s for fear of losing business to competitors.[15] However, this also meant that innovation was stifled in the tattooing community. New school artists were more open with this information and pushing the boundaries of tattooing,[14] and explains why there is some tension between older and newer tattooers; regarding this transition, traditional tattooers remark that "tattooing has lost some of its charm," whereas newer tattooers consider this openness to be progressive.[15]

                          Gertrude Guillaume-SchackSocial Democratic Party (SPD). Her activities and political views caused her to be exiled by the German authorities. She moved to England in 1886, where she became involved in Socialist organizations but fell out with Friedrich Engels. After leaving the English Socialist League she became involved in theosophy, and her resulting refusal to accept medical treatment may have contributed to her early death of untreated breast cancer.
                          Early years

                          Gertrud Schack was born in the village of , Silesia, near what is now , on 9 November 1845.[1][2] Her father's family belonged to the old nobility of Lower Silesia..[3] Her father, Count Schack, was an open-minded and wise man who exercised great influence on his gifted daughter. When Gertrude was seventeen years, her parents left their estate and bought a villa in Beuthen an der Oder. Her father sent Gertrud to live with a sister, asking her to visit him often.[4]
                          In the autumn of 1873 she moved to Neufchatel, Switzerland. In 1876 she married a Swiss painter, and lived for a while with him in his parents' house.[5] Her husband was Edouard Guillaume of , Neuchatel.[6] Her brother-in-law was James Guillaume, an anarchist closely associated with Mikhail Bakunin.[7][8][a] The newlyweds moved to Paris, but it turned out that her husband was not willing to commit himself to marriage and abandon his bachelor habits, and Gertrude was constrained to demand a divorce.[5] In the summer of 1878 she returned home from Paris.[10]

                            Abolitionist

                            While in Paris Guillaume-Schack became active in the abolitionist[b] movement started by Josephine Butler of England to fight state-regulated prostitution. She began the campaign in Germany with the same goals.[1] In her view compulsory medical examinations and other regulations imposed on prostitutes penalized the women but ignored their male clients.[15] In January 1879 she went to Berlin to work for the cause, and in May 1879 gave her first lectures to very small audiences.[10] She spoke publicly against state-regulated prostitution in City Hall in Berlin on 14 May 1880, but very few people turned up to hear her.[16] On 7 March 1880 she founded the Deutscher Kulturbund (German Cultural Association) in Berlin.[17] The Deutscher Kulturbund was in effect the first chapter of what would become the International Abolitionist Federation (IAF) in Germany.[18] Technically it was independent of the IAF, due to restrictions imposed by the laws of Prussia, and was based in Beuthen an der Oder.[1] However, it followed the principles that Butler had defined.[19]
                            Although she was supported by the leaders of the Berlin's women's movement, Lina Morgenstern and Franziska Tiburtius, progress was slow. Many respectable people thought that it was not proper for them to publicly discuss prostitution.[1] Guillaume-Schack expressed this view when she opened a public talk in 1882 by saying, "perhaps it will have surprised you, that a matter so difficult to handle as the morality question should be discussed in public, and perhaps yet more that I, a woman, want to speak about it."[20][c][d] The Prussian Law of Association, which remained in force until 1908, also restricted the right of women to meet and talk about social and political issues in public.[22]
                            Guillaume-Schack spoke at many events and meetings. The Bulletin Continental, the organ of the British, Continental and General Federation (the future IAF), reported that in January and February 1882 she had spoken in Breslau, Liegnitz, Berlin, Hanover, Bonn, Cologne and .[3] In March she attended meetings in Elberfeld, Barmen, Wiesbaden and then Darmstadt, where a large mixed meeting including women and girls was organized in the gymnasium. The audience had been told of the subject in advance, and listened quietly other than a few male hecklers at the front. She told them that the morality police were a source of difficulty for a young fallen woman who wanted to return to an honest life. At this, the police commissioner and his agents went up to her and demanded that she stop her speech, since it was immoral.[23]
                            The following day Guillaume-Schack and another were charged for having disturbed the peace and caused grave disorders.[24] Her trial was due to her effrontery in simply speaking openly about prostitution.[20] At the trial it was confirmed that Guillaume-Schack had been dignified and serious. The trial turned into an inquiry into the vice squad, while the two defendants were acquitted. It emerged that children of thirteen or fourteen years of age could be registered as prostitutes and allowed to practice this trade as long as they followed police regulations, the only trade a minor could follow without their parents' permission.[1] In 1882 Guillaume-Schack published the polemical ("About our moral relations") concerning prostitution and white slavery.[25] The movement gradually came to life. The Berlin branch of the Cultural Association was allowed to hold meetings in a room at the Ministry of Religion and Justice, where they distributed a number of leaflets and brochures. Some of the worst excesses of the system were curtailed.[1] Despite interference from the police the organization grew to twelve branches. Many of its members were feminists. They tried to help girls and women, and also to end regulated prostitution in Germany, a system that let these women "fall".[26]

                              Guillaume-Schack met the Silesian activist Lina Morgenstern, and they founded the ("Association for the Rescue and Education of Girls Dismissed of Criminal Charges"), which ran a hostel for young women seeking work. It was located opposite the newly opened main Berlin railway station.[27] In August 1885 Guillaume-Shack visited Berne and gave two public talks to women audiences, leading to formation the next year of the Association of Berne Women to Improve Morality.[28] The authorities banned Guillaume-Schack due to her public meetings on abolitionist issues, and her association with the banned Social Democratic Party (SPD).[19]\\
                              German Socialist

                              In 1884 Guillaume-Schack founded the (Central Ambulance and Funeral Fund for Women and Girls in Germany).[29] This was a front organization for unauthorized workers associations as well as a regional platform.[30] It sparked activity among working women, and soon grew to 20,000 members.[29] In 1885 Guillaume-Schack and Emma Ihrer founded the Verein zur Vertretung der Interessen der Arbeiterinnen (the Association to Promote the Interests of Working Women) in Berlin in collaboration with the SDP.[31][32] Guillaume-Schack was elected honorary President of the Berlin workers association.[30] It was banned after a year as a political organization.[31]
                              Guillaume-Schack joined the SPD in 1885. She was strongly opposed to special regulations for women's work and organized protests against proposed protective legislation for women when it was debated in the Reichstag in 1885.[33] Guillaume-Schack undertook a lecture tour of Germany during which, despite massive police intervention, she managed to found workers' associations in many other cities on the Berlin model. Encouraged by Guillaume-Schack, other women ventured to speak out and make organizational tours.[30] Guillaume-Schack spoke at meetings of German women workers' associations, where she attacked militarism and advanced socialist ideas.[34] Guillaume also attended many meetings in Switzerland where she spoke of the misery of working women. She supported creation of the first associations of working women and housewives.[35]
                              In January 1886 Guillaume-Schack launched (The Citizeness), a newspaper, in Offenbach am Main.[36][37] The paper reported the meetings of working women's associations, gave statistics on working conditions and wages, and gave news and commentary on the wage struggles.[38] , the first German journal for working women, was prohibited and pulped after just six months of publication.[39] By marrying a Swiss Guillaume-Schack was considered to have given up her German citizenship. She was barred from living in several cities in Germany, and then deported, allowed only to return for short family visits.[1]
