Enabled Clean URLs

I just enabled clean urls, which takes the ?q= bit out of most urls. This makes linking to certain things (like your profile) easier. Compare:

Default URL Scheme:
http://bassplaying.com/?q=user/1

Clean URL Scheme:
http://bassplaying.com/user/1

Simpler is better. Let me know if anything breaks. It might take a while for this change to propagate and your browsers might still have the old URLs cached. But, over time, the "?q=" should disappear (I might need to edit some of the nav links by hand, though). Both URL schemes should continue to work indefinitely, as far as I know.

I can also set up URL

I can also set up URL aliases for you regulars. So, if, for example, Hazz would prefer to be bassplaying.com/user/hazz instead of http://bassplaying.com/user/39, I can set that up. Anyone who wants me to add an alias substituting username for user number, just comment on this thread, PM, or email.

I took some initiative and

I took some initiative and just went ahead and created alias for everyone listed in the "Highest Users" block (bottom of the left nav):

http://bassplaying.com/user/hazz
http://bassplaying.com/user/wheat
http://bassplaying.com/user/paul
http://bassplaying.com/user/boh
http://bassplaying.com/user/dave

Happy birthday!
