You are working like a beaver Chad, even while dodging *snowballs* lol...
The forum is loading faster for me on dial-up, thanks!

Chad, thanks for all your hard work. I've noticed a difference on the pages loading too, even though I'm on broadband. The journal section is better too, easier to find up-to-date journals. :shade:
