    Go with Rails - it's just awesome - if you're interested be sure to check this out What's special about Rails

    I've been learning Ruby in my spare time since the end of last year (although had some interruptions due to my dog falling ill) and I just love it.

    If you're not a coding expert don't worry, Ruby is easy to pick up and I'll be doing a blog post on how to learn it and Rails soon - follow that and you won't have any trouble.

    The best thing is you no longer have to rely on others to get the functionality you want - if you can dream it you can pretty much do it in Rails

    I'm long time in this group already, but never received a response to this.
    Sadly the groups are the worst place to receive any attention but your sig link is a good idea, if I have space left I'll doing the same.

    My sites are relatively static, and falling behind TBH. Even though there is some vb3 addon development going on. I haven't decided which way to go yet. vb4, IPB, Joomla or custom I'm not sure yet. Either way, it will surely include a very large amount of custom coding.

    I can honestly say I have never ever installed a browser toolbar - ever! LOL

    How are your sites coming along Alfa? Haven't you moved over to Ruby on Rails yet!?

    That's so true Raza, last time I had to do a restore backup of my 20 y.o. nieces laptop. When it finished the first she asked was "how do I get into the internet", she didn't found the "blue e". That's the facebook generation...

    Some interesting things came to light after running this scheme - the main one being some people don't even know what a browser is let alone what they're using... even though they have been on the internet (using my site) for years :lol:

    So I've added a link to this site which tells people what their browser is, what features it supports and also records the info for me. It's pretty handy you guys might want to consider doing the same - just to get info on what browsers your regular users are using.. and what features they support.

    IE6 is installed out of the box on Windows XP. It will never disappear, if only for the people who dont use autoupdate, disabled it oir fail activation/antipiracy checks.

    ...as are Firefox, Chrome, Opera and most other browsers. Is there such a thing as a pay-for browser anymore?

    Nobody has suggested doing it this way Mark. A small recommendation on the footer or elsewhere on a site is way different as what you're telling here.
