Yay, the lines of communication are open once again.
There is no spoon. Which sucks because I have a pudding cup.

IMO Test Topic has never recaptured the quality of work they created
in the 70s and early 80s - up to and including Underwater Moonlight.
They remain an inspiration however!   ;D

PS... I'm viewing the new forum at work on IE6 using "smallest" text size
and everything seems clear and legible (with my glasses on).

I like the current colours - steely blues with just a hint of Mother of Pearl.   :)

Let me tell you all, my life has sucked for the past 48 hours.  But I do know more about mySQL than I did before, at least.

Hello,  I've been lost and trying to find my way home. Is this it? :) Glad to see the forum back. You don't realize how much you enjoy something until it's gone.   Harry D

Hey, Mike, thanks for your efforts in getting the forum up and running again.  Everything looks fine and readible in IE 6.0.

I'm glad to see everyone making their way over here.  We now have 14 members signed up, which of course is less than the 1,000 or so we had on the old Forum, but then most of those members were inactive, and this new Forum was only unveiled right before I went to lunch today.

I hate to think that many of our interesting topics may be (probably are) lost, but I'll try to re-create some of the most important or popular topics on here, and others should feel free to do the same.

One other thing:  JKN remains a moderator on the Forum as before, and I have also made APK a moderator, as our second moderator on the old Forum, Numina, doesn't come around nearly as much any more.

So, thanks to APK for agreeing to take on the moderator tasks, and thanks to everybody else for keeping the faith and stopping in here to check this place out.  I'll do my best to make it worth your while, and make this place even better than the old one.

We're all united in our hatred of this default theme, and I'll try to create a better one soon.  First things first, just trying to get this thing working, then I'll make it look better.

You can choose a different theme under the Profile tab. Oh, and the forum looks fine using Safari on a Mac.

I've tested it on the following browsers and it's fine on all:

Windows IE 6
Windows IE 7
Windows Safari
Windows Firefox 2

Mac Safari
Mac Firefox 2

Linux (Ubuntu, Gnome) Firebox

Haven't tested Camino, Opera or anything on Windows Mobile (but the previous Hypnos Forum looked like crap on Windows Mobile IE anyway)

Yep, the Classic YaBB SE theme , for example, is a nice, more defined variant on the default.

I don't like this theme myself.  Not enough contrast between posts. But I like the effects... - J.

Welcome, Jesse.

And since you showed up immediately after I told everybody you weren't coming around as much (resulting in me making constantly-online-all-the-time Forum member APK into a new moderator), you show up here.  So I'll clarify for the record that I switched moderators not as any kind of swipe against Jesse, just because he really hasn't been here much at all lately... except right now.

Whew! I was going through "forum withdrawal".

Just what exactly happened here? And it really sucks that all the previous posts are gone! >:(
The emoticons are small and blotchy...  But it seems that thereis moreoptions for the text.

Griff - that's fine, I don't have time to moderate anyway.  It was fun while it lasted... but I will miss eyedropping the "priviedged" area where the moderators mingle.  Oh well.  - Jesse
