Nope. There was talk of moving up if there was a vacancy, but that never occurred.
BTW, I tried to hop into the chat briefly with no success. It tells me the link is unavailable

Vincent's Sunday Surprise Beverage Bonanza
Howdy Dudes and Dudettes of Texas!
Today's Sunday Surprise Beverage is Make - Your - Own - Beverage Day! I've got lots of Large Boxes full of drink making ingredients stacked up right here and I'm going to beam them directly into the home of every Texan in Texas. Everyone will receive a Large Box and it'll materialize on the table closest to you. With all the drink ingredients in your box you can make Hot Pumpkin Nogs, Pumpkin and Fruit Smoothies, Harry Potter Pumpkin Juice and Apple Harvest Punch. There's enough ingredients to make 3 glasses of each drink. You can keep the Instructional Guide CD as my gift to you:
Make Your Own Beverage Drink Making Guide:
Hot Pumpkin Nog
Pumpkin and Fruit Smoothies
Harry Potter Pumpkin Juice
Apple Harvest Punch
When blending drinks in your blender always add your ice at the end so it doesn't jam up the blender. Also if you've got alcohol in your house and you desire an alcoholic drink just mix your own booze into the beverages.
And today I've included a large container of Mediterranean Pastry Pinwheels in everyone's boxes too. These quick appetizers are irresistible. The flavors of sun-dried tomatoes and pesto balance beautifully to create a delicious snack for y’all.
I hope y'all enjoy today's Sunday Surprise Snack and Beverages Texans. Yeehaw! :)
I've been reading through some of the news and public statements about Facebook and Twitter blocking links to the New York Post story on Hunter Biden's computer. Twitter even goes so far as to lock accounts that post anything linking that article or the contents of the hard drive until that particular Tweet is removed. Facebook suspended numerous accounts belonging to people attempting to circumvent the automated link killer process.
This latest shenanigans out of our social media moguls might have been the last straw that invokes some nuclear action. The Republican National Committee along with a half dozen conservative groups filed an official complaint with Federal Election Commission against Twitter for cutting off the accounts of the Washington Post and others Tweeting that story. The RNC lawyers call Twitter's action a payment in goods or services. They claim Twitter gave in in kind donation to the Biden campaign that is almost priceless. (Or words to that effect.) While this is kind of a stretch, it is by no means out of reality's reach. There is precedent going back to the Hush Rush attempts and station ownership complaints in the 80's.
It is my understanding that a similar complaint against Facebook will be forthcoming Monday or Tuesday.
I think Zuckerberg and Jack bit off more than they can chew this time. These two social media moguls now have the undivided attention of numerous senate committees, including the Judiciary Committee. There is also more than a passing interest by several branches of federal law enforcement.
Frankly, I think we will see legislation fairly quickly after the election. It is going to come down fast and hard. My guess is the common carrier immunity is going to be revoked.
This leaves me with mixed emotions. Frankly, Twitter and Facebook openly playing silly buggers against one political side was done at their own free will. The Zuckerberg and Jack made their beds, they can lie in them. This is a good thing. If there is a penalty to paid for screwing around with the free flow of information about government and candidates running for elected office, maybe these clowns will knock it off.
However, when the government sticks its legislative fingers into the private sector, the government screws it up, everytime. There are a thousand ways this could go bad for you and I and the rest of us consumers. It is pretty much a sure bet, whatever our lawgivers do is going to end up taking some of the shine off those platforms for all of us.
