Thanks so much for all your hard work Colin. I look forward to seeing what you come up with.

I don't know if you'll be changing this on the new site or not, but it took me awhile to realize that the forum and the site proper have separate search engines. Maybe this is intentional.

I don't know if the new site will unify the search engine or not, but I would suggest at least making it clear that they're separate, for the sake of newcomers.

I'm being extremely nit-picky here and don't mean to sound the least bit ungrateful.

Thanks so much for all your hard work, and for providing a place like this where we can exchange stories and ideas.

Thanks! I appreciate that. It is a lot of work...
but it is worth is.

In fact, in a week or so, I will start turning our regular readers loose on the new website.

Now keep in mind: The functionality is coming first and the new features will be added gradually.

The new website is not going to look that dramatically different from this one.
The back-end software that powers it has undergone a huge refit -- and I was running out of time on the old one.

The bottom line: Right out of the gate, the content has to work and the forum has to work.
The file area should work right out of the starting gate -
and there will be features that, I hope, will surprise and please most of our regular readers.

Colin,

I don't know if it's just me but all of a sudden the forums get pretty skinny. All the stuff on the right is hogging the middle space. I likie the look of the new site you have up there on the front page. Is very cool looking. Love'n this place.

Cheers, Guy

The forums are squeezed because of the post by TAG that includes a bad link that's too wide. It shows up in the recent postings list, and because the text isn't wrapping, we're all squished!

If we post just a few more times though, we'll bump it off the list, and things will fit again... :)
