I tried to follow an old link in ... didn't seem to work ... so that will be what the first 237 posts will be about :)

That's prolly cause they are just collecting information from your PC without your knowledge. ...I wouldn't worry.

I'm, so far, pleasantly surprised with the new interface. For me it has been fairly quick, with most things working....one that doesn't are the links Kerry mentions.

One of the more important things (to me) I had inquired about long ago has been addressed and works well...that being able to post code without it being mangled into something completely unusable.

It still is a far cry from the nntp groups I'm used to, but I don't think it will keep me from using it....which is exactly what the old interface did for me.

You can sign in...?

I can get to the site, and browse through forums, but when I try to sign in, it says "Service Unavailable".

Looks like this has been corrected. I have followed a dozen, or so, links without a problem now, including the ones Kerry posted in the .NET group there.

Right now my biggest complaint is that they told us the RSS feeds would help ease the transition form nntp. Which they might, except right now the feeds are only feeding new topics....any new replies go unnoticed.

I was wondering if they's see my comment about links ...

next should be the editor text size if we're lucky :)

Then the use of < and > characters  in posts ...

re RSS : I think RSS will be useless unless we have some way to collate the posts ... If they just get splattered into the ether as the posts occur it will just be a mess.

The < > characters seem to be working for me...at least they did in the test code I did last night. Or maybe you want to use them in some other way?

I've never used RSS much, but I think it will be more of notice that posts are being made. Which is a better alternative than getting an email whenever a post is added. But then again, it may prove to be a waste of time & effort....
