    Just checking the new bells and whistles, and realized there is no search function unless
    I am logged in? Am I miising something? This may make the site less inviting to new peeps.

    I've seen other forums do that as well probably to cut down on crawlers banging on the search engine. Some get around it by imposing time limits while others throw up captchas. Some forums don't let you see attachments if you don't have an account.

    I just did. The first time I've been here on a computer instead of a phone, so I wasn't logged in when I started reading.

    What is it the Air Force says? The difficult we do right away. The impossible takes a little longer.

    Craig's busting his ass for all of us...has been for quite some time now...he deserves a hell of a lot of credit and thanks for a job exceptionally well done so far...and he's not finished yet. Thanks, Boss!

    No doubt about that. I'm up in the middle of the night a lot, leave for work at 1-1:30. I don't think he's been to bed in a week.

    Here! Here! I'm still finding small touches that amaze me . . . such as the "Like" button. Very cool.
