Is it just me?

I HATE THIS NEW SYSTEM!!!! I don't think it is JUST that I dislike change, though that is true. I like a board that I can SEE the replies, a title and preferably who is posting. It took me forever to realize that the itty bitty numbers were the replies, that is terrible. In the past and especially on the ADHD board, there have been posters who I avoided reading what they wrote. Now, I don't have that option, I just see that there are 3 replies or whatever. A new look I can get used to. An unfriendly set up makes me want to avoid a place like the plague.

BTW, Dave, what I had said about Sam was that he is in a residential behavioral school. He comes home Fri. night through Sunday afternoon. He can go back early (or stay the whole weekend) if he is out of control. We were very blessed to get in on this, I don't have to pay for it, there is a grant or something. The school has a very good reputation, though I am sure that with Sam there is a lot more going on and experience has not given me much hope.

I reread the instructions (!) and found the overview that LOOKS like the old set. Well, I think that sucks too! It gives you windows all over the place that will eat up all your RAM or memory or whatever it is when your computer resources get low. But it is better than the alternative. I guess.

I have to take off my pop up stopper to even be able to see the overview thingy. UUGGHHH!! And I feel like I am clicking & waiting more now. Plus I forget what is one wich screen and why I have it up! Guess I have no option but to get used to it. I knew they were going to add a few things, but don't remember them saying that they were going to completely screw it up.

Sounds like you got lucky there

A school like that might do Sam some real good but I understand your doubts.

At least it ought to reduce your stress level, ey?.

I like the edit message feature of the new board.

The rest I am not sure about.

My wife was put back on day shift so now we have to deal with

day care and/or baby sitters. You know how that goes.

Bad luck for us.

Just when he is about to get out of school for the summer too.

Yeah, I had to turn off the Popup Stopper too but I have

been turning it back on after the Overview window is up.

What I do is double click the Stopper icon, click Overview

and then double click the Stopper icon again.

After the overview is up I just leave it there and refresh it if

it needs it. Kind of pain having all these windows up though.

The other board was just fine. All they needed was the edit message

function and NO popups.
