nNnNnNOOOOOOOOO!
Ok folks, time to start forming those support groups...
Easiest way to do it is everyone meet at the local bar at 7:01 and drink heavily until the crisis has passed. Deep breaths folks, we can make it through this... there will be light at the end of that tunnel!

Do you mean 7:00PM (19:00) CST (Central Standard Time), or CDT (Central Daylight Time)?  We are in Daylight Savings Time right now in most of the USA.

Take Care,

Dealers choice!

Nice catch David.  I lifted the text from an email another site sent several months ago.  I'll fix it so the next time I copy the notice it will be proper.

Cheers!

The upgrades are complete. I've also replaced the chat system (yet again), give it a try and let me know if it's better.

Thanks,

Tom

ok that was freaky. I had left a window open before I went to eat. I use the gray back ground theme. I hit reload and the screen went from gray to white. The update had logged me off the site.

I forgot we had screen options! Maybe Miss Anna needs a change of view...

I did notice the new "users in chat" added to the "who's online" section. Nice touch. :)

Yeah, the upgrade logs everyone out and locks the database.

The dark background is just easier to read. The white with black text is too bright for me.

before you ask to change the theme go to your profile.

Profile> look for modify profile on the left>Look and Layout Preferences click > in the center of the page you will see Current Theme Click change to see the other themes.

If you try the new chat and it doesn't log you in automatically (it should) you can login using your forum username and password.
Thanks,
