It was a seamless transition from my point of view. Thanks again, Chuck for all that you do to keep the board upand running.
One observation that I have made is my employer’s wesite blocker now blocks access the the forum threads. When using the website from work i can view the homepage, the forum index, even login and see my profile. But click on a thread and the company’s “access blocked” message pops up. This falls into the category of “It’s not you, it’s me” , but I found it interesting and chose to bring it up in case other users may be having a similar experience.

That's a bummer! The web address is the same so I have no idea why that would be, unless it is the new software version we are using. Let us know if you find a work-around.

Tried donating, but PayPal doesn't recognize your email address. Did it change along with the board?

Make sure you replace " at " with "@". It's not a good idea to show the actual e-mail address on the Web. Spammers will pick it up and inundate you with spam. If you can't get it to work, PM me. Just got something in today, so I know it works.

Work-around found! Today I am at work doing work stuff using Google Chrome for a task that requires it and thought I had nothing to lose so I attempted to view threads on the message board using GC, it works!

I also found out that using my work computer at home away from my employer's network will allow me to use the website even in IE.

I'm not sure if Google Chrome is the solution for everybody experiencing similar difficulties, but it worked for me (at least until IT gets wise to my tactics).
:P

Since you can use the computer at home, I imagine that they have blocked certain sites in their firewall. Doesn't explain why GC works though.

Dunno, but I'm not going to be the one to point out the "chink in the armor".

Thanks again for all you do.
