ACG on Email format

What you want is ACG on an email format,

where you can read posts and reply onto posts,

by PDA, Personal Digital Assistant,
with a cell phone, cellular telephone, link.

Otherwise, you will require a small notebook, or tablet, computer

with WiFi access,
if you want "decent" response time,
(in real time)[1].

Footnotes

[1]
In my day, 24 hour turnaround
on a Fortran program,
in a batch processing queue,
was a decent response time

on DEC Vax 1180 or IBM System 360/370 mainframe.

Nah Sky, I didn't mean I actually want to use a PDA, I just want the forum to load faster on my computer and I don't care about avatars, etc.

I think this forum software suite is just too bulky and graphic and feature intensive, a little less "luxuries" wouldn't hurt, if it meant much faster loading times.

Yeah, I know about that, but you can't post or use features like Get New, etc.

The theme that's called "Testing do not use" is exactly what I want.

I think that youe should add a censor for picturs and youe should have an area where you can leave comments on other forum users.

It will not work on this forum of too many pirates,

For example, if you knew Mad Max Thunderdome [1] from a previous life website,

then you would know a recent post by Mountain Man was not by Mountain Man[2], (but I could be wrong).

Therefore, on this, a very high class, forum, we must concentrate on issues,

or else we will quickly be burned in a flame war about cults of personality[3].

Footnotes

[1]
Not his real name on a previous life website.

[2]
http://armchairgeneral.com/forums/ar...p?t-62976.html

[3]
Because we never know whose will be the next body that Doctor Sinister, Sinc, invaders do snatch.

Funny you'd say that, mate...

I had the Jolly Roger added to the flags available as an expression of me independence of self, thought, & opinion... Regardless of me country of origin! Most that fly it do so for the same reason. I do not belong to SINC... nor do the vast majority that fly it!

In that DocSin may seek rule of all lands of the Earth... he does so knowing that only Neptune rules the seas!

Of course... gettin'im to openly admit it may be a different story - HAR!

Y'ARR!

I know what I want: larger file sizes for avatars (for better animations ) and (although it'll never happen) I would love to see the ability to have picture signatures (of a reasonable size).

Ah, one can dream. . .

And that's all you'll get to do, DoD.
