Boots Much Has Changed

Being away for six or seven months can leave people slightly curious when, upon returning, they discover a site that looks corporately owned, rather than privately funded. What has happened?

Iarwain

P.S. In fact, I just used the search engine, and it took only 1.25 seconds to find every post I've ever written. Frightful!

Many thanks, Mark, hopefully I'll adjust to it quickly.

I know what you mean, Iarwain, and welcome back! I returned just recently as well, and I found the new look and features quite overwhelming. I'm sure we'll both adjust in time, though! Good to see you!

Ditto, HI. Maybe it's just because of the number of posts you have - the search 'assumes' that you won't really need to see them all.

However, that probably means you can't find your first post...in my case, probably best.

Guess who's back.

Back again.


Ok, I'll shut up.

Seriously, you think the site looks corporate? Personally, it took me a while to get used to it, but then it becomes alright. Do you dig the new White Tree icon?

Look who's here....me!

It's the third time since I've been on the BD since it's changed, and I'm still going, "Woah...." I think I lost a few hundred of my posts as well.

Oh well, I have the entire summer to adjust, right?

The incredibly odd thing about change is that only last night I took that turn in the road before taking it again just now.

I've only been on a few times since the changes took place, and boy does it still confuse me! But the forum looks so supremely cool now! Ah, none of you remember me anyway... Well, I'm back.
