1. it was funny. the page that loaded first was sans any pictures and was just text with links, kind of liked it better than the old and the new (just kidding). hitting refresh brought up the old site with pictures again.
2. of course, now I'm neither a subscriber nor an apprentice as you all have mucked up whatever it is that keeps track of who's on first.
3. seems frogboy is getting a little surly for us ranking on the new site. and while I'm one of those that are saddened by the loss of the old friendly site, I'm sure that we will all get used to the new business model at some point. (what is that point date?)
4. I'm still wondering how us non-top skinners will be represented on the new site, you know top skinner this and top skinner that, which leaves us others not so fortunate regulated to the realms of darkness.
5. it was the site that locked up IE8 not the other way around (happened to me also). if and when WC gets around to set up skinning for ie8 (if that's possible?) the problems will go away. I think this should be a priority as it is causing issues with uploading as well.
