Many of you noticed that there were some upgrades done on the Forum. Partly because of the trouble that I ran into causing it to go blank and also because some of the features were not working.

In any case, I'm happy to see that the speed of the forum has greatly increased.
Another thing that I like is the new integrated toolbar. Now when you want to post smileys you need to choose the smileys icon beneath the post. Also, the Smileys end up under the Submit Topic icon making it easier and quicker to find. Attachments are also quicker to find now since all the buttons are located directly under the post.

Fiddlerman now gets over 2000 unique visits every single day. Thanks to all of you for making this a great place to visit.

In case you haven't noticed, way down at the center bottom of the forum you'll see the possibility to change the Forum Theme.

I'm kind of boring and tend to use silver, cool-blue and shades-of-grey.

Which theme are you using?

Think I'll try the "fools-gold" for a while, like the options

I use the cool-blue, by default?

I like it a lot and I think it's very easy on my eyes for reading and "staring" at my computer screen just in case there're some difficultly digesting subjects. LOL

Kevin - Are you using the same browser as usual? Spell checker has to do with your computer and the browser. Does your spell checker work on Google search for example?

Testing the quote. Looks different while editing...Terry's text quoted above isn't indented. We'll see what it looks like once I hit Submit Reply.

EDIT: the quoted text is there but not highlighted and indented like quotes used to be.

It's hard to downgrade because of the posts that have been made since the upgrade are recorded in the Database and would not work with the old version. It will be possible for me to fix problems though. This will get worked out.
