Ooo... I think I've seen that before.

No way I'm programming it myself. :pika:

If someone can find a mod and it won't be too insane, perhaps...

Weird.

When I was at home in Canada, the new board loaded quite slowly for me, compared to the old board. So I was expecting to not be able to load it in Kyrgyzstan at all, where I can only dream of the speed of a dial-up connection (the one internet cafe near where my classes are charges a whole dollar an hour, and most of it is spent waiting for stuff to load! Other internet cafes charge by the megabyte).

But this actually loaded quite quickly for me (avatars do take a while). So much for a complaint post...

Lady Wuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu! *Zhao Yu Voice*

I'm glad your inexplicably robust dial-up connection robbed you of your complaint. :devil:

There is going to be a bare-bones layout at some point. I think I'm even going to do away with avatars and the like in it. I haven't decided if there will be a mobile layout and a bare-bones layout, or if there will be some kind of hybrid layout.

Gotta a bit of a problem, it may have been posted here a while ago not sure. The new feature on the Control panel 'adding friend and foes' I already added all my friends (might as well make use of everything) but it won't allow me to use/add my foes was it removed for being blank? Hey now I actually had big plans for that one!

Hm ok. I just figured there was something wrong with my laptop because I would get an error for it. By the way, this layout is much better then the old one I love the bottom top!

Have a question about a book or academic article before you buy it? Maybe I have it!

I like this new layout, with one small exception. In the old layout if I signed in while viewing a thread I would be automatically redirected back to it. For example if I was reading a post and I wanted to reply to it, I'd hit reply and sign in, and continue exactly where I wished. In the new layout it automatically redirects me, or gives me no option other than going back to, the main page. It is no biggie. Perhaps a small price for a nicely designed layout.

Another question!!1!
If someone else adds you on their friendlist do they appear in yours? I just got James' iPhone on mine, and I don't remember adding the phone in my list... :?

Still getting use to these new tools, don't mean to bother.

That's pretty crazy... I thought for sure it would still have that feature...

I'm not sure that happens... perhaps you simply had a fit of good taste? :pika:
