This is much better than that mailing list. Once you get the kinks ironed out and the users acclimated, this will be much easier to peruse, read and respond to.

I agree, maybe know we can stay on sailing and leave personal discussions and politics out.

I looks like this new forum is finally working, at least it seems to be. Setting up anything new web-based takes time, a lot of trial-and-error. I just got through doing it as webmaster of our orgnization, switching from one provider to another and moving out website. It was hell for close to a week but now I couldn't be happier -- both that I finally did it ... and that it's all behind me now!
I had signed up on the first day but had all the headaches everyone else did right up to this morning, when at last the error messages were replaced by the thread. But still, there was no way to post a comment, and nowhere to find out how to. So I wrote Dick King off-list and he told me to sign up all over again, so I just did. When I went back to the discussion list and chose this one, there it was -- a way to join the discussion and I'm looking finally at a "Submit" button right below this window!!! I've got my fingers crossed that it works when I get done typing and click on it!
Let's see ...

This is excellent! Way better than the cumbersome List Serve with the scrambled HTML and MIME encoded posts.
Congrats to Lowell....... and all concerned!

I'm getting two of everything right now - is everyone else getting it? Also, I unsubscribed to both daily and hourly notices and I'm still getting them...
Also, the message window is larger than that portion of thescreen reserved for it (i.e. I get horizintal scroll bars at the bottom) that would make it easier to read the messgaes...
If there is a way to get messages offline, I'd certainly prefer that... I'm not always connected when I check email.
Whil I'm on a roll: spell check would be graet! :p

I also unsubscribed from both the hourly and daily notices. Now I seem to be getting all of the hourly notices once a day, all at the same time. Can't be sure cause I've been busy & haven't logged into my e-mail too often today..
Haven't decided whether I like this new system better than the old & maybe never will. I think it will be much easier and less time consuming to administer once all of the bugs worked out.
Question: What do you call a program after all of the bugs are fixed?
Answer: Nothing. There ain't no such thing!

Lowell-- Thanks so much for keeping this thing going, and all of the hard work setting up this new format. Although as a loyal republican who has taken an absolute vow to oppose any sort of change of any type, I may be heard to gripe about this change, please have the good sense to ignore me as this fomat looks neat. Thanks again.
