Please please can we have a better support forum? This type of mailing
list forum belongs in the dark ages and makes support and communication very
slow and tiring.

Something like www.vbulletin.com is the way to go. SD needs to make its
support as stunning as its devices.
Hope you folks agree.

Oh no, not again.

Just for the record, I couldn't disagree more. I'm not going there again!

But we've all been through this conversation many times already. The result was that we have the best of both worlds. People can use email, or use a forum that is in progress, currently read-only (http://forums.slimdevices.com/).

I had got a tip over registering and getting an email account from
Google's Gmail.
The account bundles email in conversation/topic so it look more/less as a forum.
It works for me.

To this end, if anyone wants a gmail invite, you can easily obtain one
from http://isnoop.net/gmail/ ... or if that doesn't work for you, email
me off this list for one as I have plenty.

I also use a mail client that gathers and threads conversations. It's
the only way to fly on a mailing list. This works fine, with exception
for _those_of_you_ who use broken clients that don't use the
In-Reply-To: header. There are only a few of you, but still, grrrrr...

You don't need GMail for that.

Outlook Express can do this (although not too well), Thunderbird can do
it too (better than OE).

Yes, you're right but I don't want to have all the mail in my private
mailbox where it would drown my other, more important, mail. When
using Gmail the, btw great amount of postings, are nice kept on other
servers than my own, been backed-up and available for a very long
time.

So why not.

I've just signed up to the forum and found it all rather confusing, and
I'd like to think I'm quite experienced at these things. I imagine a
lot of people just give up. Are you trying to discourage new members
from posting?
