    So I go away for a few months and look what happens! The new website is horrendous! PLEASE, PLEASE stop trying to "improve" things. My eyes are hurting me so I need to sign off now.

    I seem able to adapt to the changes well enough, but I lack any concept of why this site keeps needing, "improvements". The answer for me seems to be, "I am ignorant.", probably blissfully ignorant. :D

    So, whomever is in charge, I assume you have reasons.
    For spinnaker, I suggest you look at recent threads in, "Off Topic" to find out how to change it back to blue and opt out of some of the new, "improvements" as I did. I expect your bliss will heal, much as mine did. :)

    Yeah, LOTS of issues here. Do read all those threads and then
    1) Log in to the new site
    2) Find 'User Panel->Preferences' and select 'Fluid'.
    3) Don't log out when you exit
    4) Make http://forum.allaboutcircuits.com/ your bookmark to AAC.
    Jumps over Arduino in a single bound! Welcome to the blue room.

    For some reason, I love that. Welcome back.

    Thank you. I don't intend to be a major force on this site, but I do get a laugh occasionally by lurking. ;)

    You underestimate yourself. Hope your back is better.

    I was never good at lurking. Pillaging and running amok are more my strong points. :D

    That and poking at things with a pointy stick.:p

    My back is so better that I have to think about it to locate any pain...except for sitting in chairs. There is a limit for that.
    I have been walking my "regular" night mile for several weeks and found that my insurance covers a gym membership, which I just came home from. I can do lots of exercises there that do not add any load to my back and I can get on a treadmill in order to challenge my heart rate much better than simply walking. I intend to get back some of the muscle mass I lost in the down time (of several months).

    I also got smarter. This morning, I took out a grapefruit tree by waving a hundred dollar bill at the lawn guy. It was done before noon and I never broke a sweat. ;)

    Now that is exercising the wisdom of age. Well done.

    The orange color and the new format are the least of the issues; it's the new rulers that are the problem. "The king has no clothes" syndrome is the order of the day; threads will be deleted for any disclosure of nakedness. Welcome back to what used to be AAC.

    I tend to challenge things as well. I just don't enjoy it like you seem to.:)

    It hasn't made me laugh yet. I take it much too seriously for my own good. I am glad you are doing well.

    You have always been able to answer my stupid uC questions without making me feel stupid. Thanks.

    I had no idea that we shared some opinions about marketing. That is the only good thing that I have gotten from the AAC "improvements." Thanks.

    I don't think I ever mentioned that I have had a ham license for 45 years, but I am not active now. The range of your knowledge has always impressed me. 73.

    I just like to see reasonable consistency is all. I was never good with the unwritten unspoken rules concepts.

    When something shouldn't be done I like to see consistent defined rational explanations as to why. If stated as such I rarely have problems following rules. When the enforcement is highly erratic and the explanations behind them are easily viewable as being irrational and or poorly justified I tend to instinctively want to question them that much more. :D
