Everyone, here's something interesting I also found out.
If I use IE (Internet Explorer) to see the forum or Firefox 1.0 I see the supporting ads for Boardnation. However, using Firefox 1.1 the ads do not show up. FF automatically filters them.

Dick,

I will take a look at that. Do you use the feature that lets the board send you an email when someone replies to your post? That email contains a link to the forum + post and I was wondering if that would take you to the very last post or to the one that you need to read first. If you could test that for me it would be great!

Ismenio,

I haven't used that feature yet, but I knew it was there.  Even if that works, it would only be on the replies to my post, and not on any discussions where I hadn't posted.

I will test that and let you know.

Thanks,

Dick Schneiders

BTW, just so you all know what I'm doing, I'm working on updates and redesign to the site. I'll be publishing lots of information for each computer. It will take me a long time to finish it but I'll send a note once I've done and uploaded the changes to the site.

One the things I've found is that it's very hard to get the precise date a computer was released Even the excellent site: http://home.hetnet.nl/~timman/csvnp3.html which has year/month seems to be showing the date for Europe, I think. One example is that it points the Boris as  being released in 1978 but it was actually 1977. So maybe it was released in the US in 77 but 79 oustide the US?

I really like the format of this forum, as I find it easy to use and intuitive.

However, I noticed something today, with all of the postings happening at the same time.  When I click on a topic that shows "new" responses, it only goes to the most recent, or last posting.  If there have been more than one new posting, since I last checked the site, it is easy to miss it, if I don't always scroll back down the list.  This is especially true when I have just responded to a posting, and so have others at the same time.  If my posting shows up as being the most recent, I would assume that there have been no other new postings and so might not think to scroll back down the list of postings to see if there were other new ones.

I can see this as, hopefully, becoming a more significant problem as more and more people discover this site and begin using it.

Am I missing something here that will overcome this situation, or is this the way it has to work?  Other forums will go to the first "new" or "unread" posting, and not to the last one.

Thanks,

Dick Schneiders
