    Bad Daddy!

    The good part is that 10 minutes after you get home, you'll be forgiven as all will be right in his world again.

    That's difficult, Favored. Glad you're going to be home soon to give him a hug in person.

    It's been pretty quiet here for a while.

    The one thing about the new software that is driving me nuts is the name placement. With a noob, it's pretty easy -- it's the last thing in the box to the left. For those of us who have been around a while, it's wedged between the picture & mood and the other identifiers -- verified member, ecf vet, supporting member, etc. It doesn't pop. Unless I know someone's avatar (which can change), I have to read the box to find it.

    It does take getting used to. Who knows, maybe once all the actual kinks are worked out, that's something we can look at some day, but for now, there are no plans to change that (I think there would be too much programming or something - probably a cost for an add-on even).

    At any rate, glad to see you two here! :)

    I'm thinking that given a little time, we'll retrain ourselves where to look. Overall i really like the new set up

    I'm glad to hear that! I really love it. There are a couple of things I miss, but I love a lot of the new features. :)

    Yeah, even though i'm whining in the tips and tricks thread about the lack of contrast, and how that makes it hard for me to separate posts visually, i'm really impressed with how smoothly the changeover has gone.

    Overall, I like it too. There are little things like finding it hard to find where sticky threads end and non-stickies begin but that's the type of thing that, after 2 weeks, you forget how it used to be. On my bookmark bar, my link to ECF used to be my subscriptions -- threads and fora. Now I have to click on two whole links to get both. I think I'll survive.

    One thing I haven't found yet (but I haven't looked too hard) is new posts in threads I've posted to. On the old software, the new posts split into all and my threads. If I answer someone in some thread I'm not interested in subscribing to, currently I forget where that thread was. But, eventually, I'll either find the list or work on my memory. :p

    Set your settings to automatically 'watch' the threads you post in. Then you can use the watched threads link just like the old 'my posts'. Even better, if you get tired of a thread you can unwatch it, or even ignore it so it stops showing up in new posts.

    You can also click on (or hover your mouse over) your avatar/user name in the upper right corner. That bring up a box with lots of handy dandy links, including a link to all of your individual posts.

    I think that always happens. You get better but before your immune system is 100%, it gets hit again and isn't strong enough to fight off whatever. You have to put 4 or 5 healthy months together in a row, then you can stay well for a while.

    Yikes, Shadav, that's messed up. I hope your immune system gets its act together soon.

    update...

    I'm missing 10% of my right foot...

    Witch had a TIA (fancy words for a transient mini-stroke)

    I'm trying to get orders out the door as best I can...
