Had a look....registered....would like to give it a go....
I like the local archiving of posts using a mailing list and agree the
forum format is only as reliable as the server, but then again, so is
the mailing list...
I like the overall view of the different topics.. for me, mailing list
posts are a bit of a quandary, is scenery development a user or
developers topic... the forum format makes it very easy to choose
... yes I like it!
