Looks good. A job well done everyone!

Just saw the new format. What's with the 8-point font? This is going the wrong way for my visual acuity. Sure I can click a couple of buttons and bump it up to 125% but...

8 point font --- you can change that in a variety of ways, starting in your User Control Panel. (Top right, click on your screen name).

Links to the Store: beliveve me, I'm working on it. Meanwhile, you can get to it via the main site so - bookmarks, people.

Bookmarks? what are those? :roll:
I can understand novice users saying that, but not "power users" who had been using Windows since Windows 95 (and especially these are folks who used to have a *lot* of shortcuts stored in their "Favorites"). At some point, it seems that many of them completely forgot how to do stuff not long after migrating to Windows XP. Believe it or not, I've actually come across a few of these folks that actually *store* files in "Recycle Bin."

Yeah- got another error message trying to log in today about a site error, tried it a while later and it all returned like nothing ever happened.

Need to purge the Iconian Contagion buffer I think...

Hopefully the move is easier than the upgrade... I presume you just install the same version, backup, then restore. I work in IT, so I know it's always simpler in theory, but We'll be sending good vibes.

Pretty much. That was the reason to do the upgrade in the first place, to then move systems. We had this sorta semi-planned out to do slowly in phases, but it looks like outside forces are going to interfere. We will know more in a few days on what our schedule is.
