I wasn't complaining only asking what changed.
but it does seem like some one is making changes, maybe it the gremlins.
I agree with the previous post, I stay on active topics 99% of the time.
by the way, I am somewhat computer literate, started way back in the DOS 1.0 days, way before windows even existed.
I have built many computers from scratch, using parts. I am also a "true" extra class ham radio operator also, and did texting via radio, on computers way before instant messenger was ever thought of.
I have used all types of radios, computers, rtty, morse code, working with tnc's and tcip protocol with computer communications way before the internet ever was made public. I even did gps displays and monitoring of a motorcycle rides while at home while they or I were out riding back in the 80's and could track those rides on a map. I've downloaded weather information and maps and weather alerts via radio to computers even before they were sent to emergency weather radio stations. I have worked many communications during emergencys assisting civilians and government agencies, I have done satellite communications via radio and computers and had to understand the Doppler effects, or hf sun spot propagation, how solar flares affect all communications. have made contacts on all continents via radio in may modes, way before cell phones were available.
all of this being self taught!
I have designed websites when internet websites first began publicly, and do networking for homes and businesses as a hobby, not to mention HD /SD video surveillance systems with onsite and offsite video and audio monitoring. our home is fully automated from the a/c, security, to lights, it doesn't take a phd college degree or a brain surgeon to run a forum, simply an interest, most are cookie cutter templates now days that occasionally need a little tweaking.
