Folks,

The website is going to be changing servers again and the Forum software will upgraded at the same time. I expect to start this sometime tomorrow morning (EST) and the Forum will likely be down all day. Hopefully it will be back online by tomorrow night.

Note that the chat area will be unaffected during this period.

Bill

OKAY - it looks like we're open for Business!!

We're on a new server now (all old links should work again soon) and the Forum software has been upgraded.

There's a lot of new features here. I look forward to your comments.

Please let me know of any problems.

Enjoy!
Bill

FYI, we've moved from a Windows Server to a Linux Server. This means that urls (links) are now case-sensitive.

If you find any links that don't work please let me know so I can fix them.

If you are signed up for email notifications - or request password, etc. and don't get it please let me know.

I think I just fixed a problem with forum email settings that may have been affecting things for the last month or so.
