Ah, now the board is starting to look much more familiar and at home. The changes are fantastic!

One question: on the far left hand side besides the topics of the threads, there are located the symbols that tell whether a thread is new or not, been read, etc. The symbol has a circle drawn around it. At about the 10 o'clock position, there is a black dot on the symbol. What does that black dot mean?

As far as I can see, it looks like the black dot denotes a topic that you have posted in... if you click on the "View Your Posts" link at the top right hand most side of the header right under the current date, you will notice that all the posts in that list have the black dot on them... so that at least is my assumption! :-)

Thanks for bringing it up! I was wondering the same thing!

Fixed it ya'll... now they should either open in a new window or new tab. All based on a .js hack I installed to fix it. Let me know if there are any problems.

I am being continuously logged out each time I open a thread. I'm using FF3.5 and have reset my cookies and have the remember me box checked.

I see the title of the Maintenance hangar has been changed... a wonderful tribute to a departed friend.

We miss you, Gary.
