Dick- I share your frustration with the technical imitations of this board, but please do not make it a personal attack on Als tech guy. PIf it was easy, he would have fixed it long ago. But, over the years programs change. This site probably uses 3 or 4 different programs meshed together to make it work, with a lot of work selecting the bits and pieces from each one needed to work with the others at the time it was first created, something like 15-20 years ago. Since then as the respective programs have been in use, the other programs they have to play with have changed or some would claim improved, but old stuff will not work on them. Stuff that worked great on MS-DOS, or Windows 3 will not work on Windows XP or Windows 10. I do not know how much of the software for this site was written specifically by the tech guy or how much was written by other people, but it is a very complex and time consuming job try to unscrew problems injected by multiple other programs. I want to again thank Al and his tech guy for giving us this platform, even with its current problems, at no cost to the users. I am sure that someone with the advanced tech skills to fix or rewrite the entire site could be found, but at a significant cost. And, a fixed site would probably require Al to learn new tricks to post his items for sale, which can be a frustrating learning experience. Cuss the technology, not those who have made our lives more enjoyable providing what they can.
