Tried to put my groove on and threw out my back instead!

Everything Old Is New Again!
I was undergoing a major house move while the old forum was being shut down. Nice synchronicity seeing all my familiar stuff arranged in a slightly unfamiliar way, both here and there :) Hello everyone!
I actually like the new look. I think it's the big print. Not sure about the greyed-out 'post now' button though. I demand big shiny red buttons!
It's too shiny and new! Read one topic at the time to avoid blindness.
Whatever you do, don't look directly at the new site, you'll go blind...
I'm back... pleased to see the new board up-and-running, slightly different but yet quite familiar. A bit how my life feels at the moment.
Phew. Much deep breathing as I find I am translated to my new existence. Thanks to all the Mods!
