....I thought that the blue one was the new logo...

......And yes site refreshes faster than before now....

Could there be a bug in the PM system again?
I had somebody tell me just about 10min ago that my PM was disabled (which is not the case). Also recently I tried to PM a member and his PM was disabled, although he said he never turned it off...

Edit: just noticed that my own PM button has vanished...

Yes, i like that idea too. It certainly makes the idea of watching one that bit easier/more appealing!

Sharky started this thread Firewalker - that bug fixed now, was affecting all "Advisors" only.

Out of curiousity, what exactly are "Advisors". I just noticed that tag for the first time today.

Doing well, thanks.

Might be cold there, but toss in a big helping of snow and you'll know what it's like here in Boston. Wow! It came down hard and fast this afternoon.

There seems to be a problem with JPG/JPEG files thumbnails though.

Yesterday I posted JPG files and they showed up fine:

But I've noticed earlier posts with attached JPG's giving a blurry black&white view:
http://www.trade2win.com/boards/320449-post14.html

GIF's from earlier posts seem to work fine:
http://www.trade2win.com/boards/270299-post153.html

Any reason for this? I think it' started couple of days ago.

PS: Don't mean to keep you busy Sharky, I guess I just take notice of these things more than others

Sharky started this thread I see what you mean - we rebuilt the thumbnails last week and there must have been a problem. I'm rebuilding them again now, using an improved graphics engine and making the thumbnails a bit bigger and better quality so that they fit neatly three on a row.
