Hi Kevin! You get the prize. I am not sure what it will be, but you're gonna get it.

How about a black Boston Whaler windbreaker?

Yeah, I was thinking in that direction, too. The irony is I just lost enough weight to fit into it.

I'm just kidding. You can keep the jacket. I don't need any prize. Just glad to see you get this going again.

By the way, I just received the confirming email telling me that my account was successfully set up.

Hi everybody.

phpBB was a good choice for the new forum software.

Jim, will you be registering the forum with Tapatalk (and enabling/installing the API)?

I'd be happy to help test it; I use Tapatalk for a lot of other sites I follow.

I thought I posted an hour ago that it was a great picture of Lucky Two, but it's not here.

Did JimH post the picture or did Kevin?

I guess I'll have to be trained to add pictures. Dragging did not work for me.

Testing Photos...

What is the max/recommended file size for photos? Looks like it won't resize the file automatically (i.e. if you try to dump a huge photo file it won't re-size it, it just rejects the image as too large.

This is an OLD photo of my 15' Whaler the first year I had it...

I'm delighted to have our forum on-line once again. It'll take me a few visits to get comfortable with the new format but I like it better already.

Congratulations and thank you for all the hard work.

Okay. It doesn't like images straight from the phone (file size). The above image is from Facebook. Still trying to get the file size figured out. It is still looking like great software Jim!

Hello Everyone,
Don't know you guys personally but I offered Jim some help on the site so he invited me in to help checkout the new Forum and provide some feedback. I look forward to test driving it with you.

Craig - I sit in front of the computer in my office, all day, every day. I saw Jim's email the moment it came in.

Edited to test font "colour."

Jim - What's up with British English? Is there an American English option?

I have to add a second language option: American English. The default is British English.

So for now, we'll have colours, trams, valves, and anoraks.

Sorry I had to figure out that I had to re-register. (Sorry Jim for me being stupid)
But I'm on and can enjoy, seeing and talking about Boston Whalers during the next 5 to 6 months while the cold is here in Michigan.

Wow, the photos are truly great. I had gotten used to the text only board but can appreciate this new feature.
