    Well - I changed it and it does indeed work - Thank you!! Unfortunately - all 'branding' from PM disappears and it lust looks like a generic xenforo site. That said, its better than the moronic way its currently implemented...

    No differentiation in font for read vs not-read thread titles

    Saw thing happened to another forum I'm on when upgraded. Let me guess - PM transferred to Xenforo. No problem with Xenforo, but this newest "upgrade" it includes (no way to tell which threads are read, drives me crazy. And I'm sure no one will change it.

    Floppy drive or the board it plugs into (serial board??) came unplugged (or failed) and now the control can't see the hardware so it won't allow it to be enabled? Just complete guess...

    What psi concrete is the typical warehouse / factory floor?

    Anyone have access to a commercial concrete spec for reference, including finishing? I'd love to know how a Costco floor is spec'd. Every time I go I'm drooling over/on it...

    Ban political discussions

    Make a separate section. Not sure it needs to be hidden. Anyone who brings up politics or religion outside that section gets a warning first and then a three day ban. I will probably get a few bans in time...

    Contacted by contractor for quote

    Its hard to say, it could be a door opening to a new opportunity, and it could be them trying to dump their problem on you. If you don't have time to work out the details to your satisfaction, I would defer to the sage advice of the greaseman... "run like hell buddy"

    Kustomizer's Shop

    Yeah - I asked the same thing a few months ago Ox. Frustrating. I'm on the burbs of DC drinking through an f'ing electric straw and Kustomizer is on three phase while looking over his shoulder for grizzly bears....

    VF2 with a pallet pool...

    Yeah the $50k is part of what caught my eye. Of course its a Haas $50k so the price for appropriately optioned/functional may be a different story. April 1st. I hope I didn't get suckered into that.....

    VF2 with a pallet pool...

    I still can't decide if its lipstick on a pig. Not that a VF2 is a pig. But it does seems like a more 'productive' solution than that manly looking parts loader thing...

    VF2 with a pallet pool...

    Got spammed with this just a few minutes ago. Seems interesting. Curious as to what others think. I can't decide if its a great idea or a swiss army knife - i.e., not really great at anything. Seems like a decent stepping stone to production for those that own or are considering purchasing...
