Wow, Nicely done Enrique and

Wow, Nicely done Enrique and fast. It will definitely organize and make looking through the posts easier. Thanks! Not sure if it's my computer, account, or the font size change, but the text when I type a comment is really tiny now, do I have control of that in my preferences?.

I looked into the small font

I looked into the small font when entering text for comments and I increased the size. Or so I think! It looked like a good size on a pc. It's still a bit small on a mac.

Thanks for your feedback Jake!

better fonts

The fonts look about right on a PC, you got to remember that no matter how great Macs are they are only 2.5% of total computers sold.

This works for me.  Nicely done.

Wouldn't it have been easier all around if you would have just done this in the first place?  Hmmmm?

If it were so easily done!

If it were so easily done! Had to add a module which allows for the addition of customized "Views". And you would think the module would take the geakyness out of it. No, I had to hunt and peck to find the solution. But at least, it's here now!

Glad it works for you!

Hi Frank, Definetely,I think

Hi Frank,
Definetely,I think we all appreciate the effort Quique and Rich put into this site. Likewise, flexibility is a great virtue when it comes to actitudes and trees of course. Now, that seems to be the rule, but as exemptions, I`ll coment I have three trees in my yard aged from 30-100, they`re called Dividivi, and I`ve seen strong storms turn over trees in the vecinity, but the strongest winds only manage to beat the leaves and rock the tips of the braches a bit. The wood is dark brown, almost black, beautiful and the hardest I`ve seen.I would not use my chain saw on it. Now there`s another one around here in the mountains I`m eager to see yet, they call it iron wood (even harder)and nobody in his right mind chain saws that species. Nature is amazing. Just a curiosity. Back to metal...Nelson.

Iron Wood

Hi Nelson,
We have Iron Wood growing in these parts. Once in a while I get one on a fire wood lot.It makes some of the best firewood I've ever burned. There's even a city named Iron Wood in da UP. I save a few chunks for blocks to beat metal on. The pioneers used the wood for axles and pry-bars.And yes, my chain saw does a lot of bouncing when I cut up Iron wood. Sometimes there sparks, no kidding.

I've not been on much lately Cry(though I'd like to be on more) but it seems easier to read and opps, I think I've just found out how to put a picture in. Hi Everyone,It's been a long time since I've been on Art Metal, I just haven't had time to get on.  My husband, Walter and I just got an award through an association we belong to (Home Based Business Association) we're really proud that we (Just takes a bit of messing around with).

Thanks for all your hard work, you've done a great job bringing all us metal artists and artisans together where we can see what everyone else is doing, problems that we're having Frownor need help with Embarassedand giving us a place to chat about it all. There's probably more I could say but I'll just stop and say, "Thanks again".Smile As you can see I've had a bit of fun using some of the emoticons (or whatever they are called) as well, hopefully it won't be such a long time before I get on again (so I don't forget everything again.

Sandra Moses,

Okay now since this has been changed and had time to reflect only one thing I see that maybe could be a misunderstanding.

If a post to an event is updated it only shows under all recent because it is not a blog. Because the recent blogs only shows recent blogs.

Hmmmmmmm which one to click???
