.... you guys totally forgot those of use that DID NOT
want to have to use the forums via an email client.

There is no way, that I see, to search through the
archives for certain key terms in the bodies of
messages. Subject searches, yes(kinda via an IE
search)... but not content. Hopefully there is a
hack/add-on for this I don't know about or I
overlooked something.

Looks like it will archive into month sections... holy
moly does that not work well. So when I am searching,
I have to search over and over and over and over
through each month section for one search (assuming no
add-on).

The web interface has craploads of wasted white space,
though to be honest, this could be hacked.

I cannot post unless I do it like now, via email...
hopefully there is a hack/add-on for web posting.

Honestly, I just won't use this as I find it more
cumbersome to get craploads of email that I don't care
about. I need a simple web interface that lets me get
in and out in moments when looking for info...

Sorry, but this is one legacy solution, and yes it is
legacy, that I could care less for. Hope this is the
beta version, and all the "good stuff" is coming soon.

And as always... fear my case :-P

Good god! A new feature on a new server that just went live isn't
100% perfect upon launch!

You forgot to mention that the sky is falling.
