    Hey, the HTML works! Here's a picture of a post! And, to keep it topical, a pic of none other than Mrs. Veil Nebula.

    Is there a way to reply to a reply or are all responses chained sequentially???

    It's like SFN. All posts are sequential, but you can use reply with quote to make sure folks know what specifically you are replying to.

    Yeah, me too. Oh well. Decisions have been made. Woe upon those who try to unmake them. Alas, I am only a Bad Newbie. Sniffle.

    Yeah, that's the big downside of boards like this, it makes it hard to follow the thread of conversation if it starts branching real badly.

    Of course, the big downside to boards that show the tree of discussion branches is that it rapidly becomes next to impossible to follow all the replies to a given thread.

    *shrug* Give n' take.

    Hmmm, my turn to try the board and test a few things.

    I was afraid of that
    I do like the open threaded structure of the old board, but since having spent some time at Hook's Mind and Brain BBS and SFN, I've become used to this format.

    Hmmm, let's see how the image linking works:



    The first rocket launch from Cape Canaveral. That was Astronomy Picture of the Day for today.

    Well, that's enough testing for now.

    The reason for all the editing is that the pictures I wanted to post from Photopoint wouldn't come through. I gotta do something about making use of my own ISP account space.

    WHOOHOO!!!

    Went to Ye Olde Boarde Index Page and was greeted with "Hello there." Looked at it rather oddly for a moment until I realized that this meant a) I wasn't looking at the regular ol' board, and b) there must be a new board somewhere in cyberspace. Congrats Phil! [:8]

    Nevermind. Just read where it only takes 50 to move beyond the rank of "newbie". Looks like I better get busy!

    Calling evolution a religion is like calling baldness a hair color.
    My brother claims he uses "clear" hair dye.

    Indeed, glad to see that the text-based browser can cope with the new board; it wouldn't be the same without you.

    Ahhhh... go to see HUb' is back in prime form. No matter what TBA changes on the board, HUb' makes it feel like "home"

    There was a topic?!? [img]/phpBB/images/smiles/icon_wink.gif[/img]

    I've had a chance to play around with some of the features, and I just have to say:

    This new board kicks major burro. Good choice of software, BA.
