I'm impressed I just looked at your light box viewer for attachments very nice. :cool: This is a remarkable list of new features in my opinion.
ALOHA!!

MOTTO TO LIVE BY:

"Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, champagne in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming.

WOO HOO!!, what a ride!!!"

Sorry about that! That was one area that I couldn't save.

BUT...don't make any changes yet. The profile area is not quite ready. So...hold off!

The Buddy List on the home page click to nowhere. Should it now be called the Contacts List? It looks like it shows Contacts instead of Friends, and I don't think Buddies exist any longer.

If anyone finds a one-time Friend disappears from their Friends List having previously been there it's not necessarily that they've gone off you, it's that it seems very easy to unselect someone without meaning to. Once that's saved as unselected the entire please-will-you yes-I-will dialogue has to be completed again before the link's re-established.
