I jst checked and found the classic mode. I think the new classic mode takes the best of new and old to make this fourm even better. I wish lenovo would do the same with thinkpads....

Hello Bill,

take care of Your fingers and aches :) ...

... and let the grouwling pass by ...

I have been using Your forum for far more then a decade now, ever again. And I am happy that it still exists, serves all those adicted to thinkpads...
I think most of us using these PC should realise that hardware and Software are far from static, threats from the dark side are real. If even Microsoft acts concerned we ought to be, too.

The point is: thinkpads.com is functional, it works, devellops, it helps ...

Thanks for the work Bill, Your work, the work of the many that help,
and stay safe and well, all fingers functional on your thinkpads keyboard ,

Happy Trails, sincerely

I'm getting used to the new look of this old forum. I'm going to stick with it.

Thanks for all the hard work. It looks great, faster and probably more secure. Good stuff.

I have completed these changes. To activate the Legacy theme, navigate to:

user control panel→board preferences→edit global settings→My board style→ and selecting "Thinkpads Legacy"
Thank you for your work. I'm fine with the new theme except for the profiles on the right, and since I couldn't find an option to put them on the left, I had to revert to the legacy theme.

The compactness, spacing, real estate and visibility of the Classic theme is wow! You've got to check it out..

Wish all forums had this theme or I could Skin them all with this PS: Any ideas folks?

Wonder if some CSS/ Extension magic can make that happen?

Having everything that was on the left now on the right is also not something I'm thrilled about. Makes reading and posting more difficult IMO.
This.

Every other forum I visit in existence always has the profile info on the left.

Oh I didn't miss it, it's just irritating because you need to LOG IN and can't view things normally when publicly viewing. What a weird design choice.

Good question. Start a new thread instead of hijacking this one.

Dear Bill:

I have not been around for a long while. What a change (progress) since the Compuserve days! Thanks to you and others (including Joe) for maintaining this page.

Happy New Year.

thanks..
not many recall the thinkpad compuserve forum and jaren levitt..
or the more-than-a-few follow-on forums i have maintained since then..

i have been trying to generate some interest in the blog but getting others to write is not easy..
