well, first of all, let begin by saying that I'm not sure I really belong here, as I RARELY venture Off topic (tongue in cheek). Im not as silly as those other people....which we won't mention any names (Al) 

Roger..do you think you'll have the space for such a project?

Fridays can get pretty bad some times!  

Seriously, I like the interface...is this a hard thing to pull off?

Thanks for starting the OT forum, Roger!  While I get a lot of useful info from the regular postings, it's nice to go OT for a break from all the seriousness.  It's too bad some folks on the "other" list either have no sense of humor or else have forgotten what the delete key is for.  <g>

well the great thing about this forum is that it stays out of my inbox & so is easy to find when I *do* feel OT.

The search function is nice, although my browser burped the first time I tried the link from Roger's front page (strange error I can't remember since I could get here on my 2nd try). Thanks for the forum, Roger. What's the name of this sofware? How much does it cost? Is this portion of your website indexed by robots? Think it's a good idea to hide email addresses in this forum, to prevent it from being harvested by spammers?

Collette,

I think the only proper response to the question abouts robots indexing this part of my site is "Duh, I don't know."    How would I tell?  What are the issues with this.  If it helps, the posts are all stored in an Access database, so it's not like scanning HTML pages.

The software is free at the WebWiz link on the bottom of every page.

Roger,
Tis a slick interface. It has some great functions. Alas no spell check.
Hopefully it won't eat up to much space! How long will it retain threads?
When I first signed up for the forum I had a problem with it not immediately wanting to let me post replies. But today it allowed me to Post.

I am moving the posts to the original topic to this one and am locking the first topic for informational purposes.  Still experimenting!

Thanks for the forum, Roger. Though I personally have never felt like the OT posts on ACCESS-L got out of hand, being part of a community sometimes means acknowledging that my personal opinion doesn't count.

I am sure this won't spell the death of all OT messages on ACCESS-L (indeed, I hope it doesn't), and I wish I didn't have yet one more place to check... but I have to admit there are times when a quick joke by the water cooler (or in the list) will suffice, and then there are times when you gotta grab someone and go across the street for milkshakes. Or something stiffer. ;)

Oops. Looks as though my post got in before the lock but then didn't get moved. Web boards can work strangely!

Well, Profuse Thanks to Roger  ( gush, gush, gush)

Have fun playing  

Sometimes we all need a place to get away from the insanity or maybe that's run to.

As to Doug's question:

This is the Forum that is used over at Darwin Awards and there are threads out there that have continued for months.

hey Roger, any thoughts on adding a picture to the post?, I've seen some sites where the name appears on the left side also include a picture, it can be anything from generic to a real foto (photo).

They are called "Avatars" and yes they are possible.  I had them turned off at first.  Go to your Profile and either choose an avatar or give a web address.

I reserve the right to delete any that might be -- ah -- inappropriate.

Avatars MUST be 32 x 32 pixels.  Somewhat limiting.

Well you COULD have read the instructions:

Select Avatar
This is the small icon shown next to your posts. Either select one from the list or type the path in to your own Avatar (must be 32 x 32 pixels).
