    Herb, that's funny I think that forum was started by Kevin, one of the guys from FanHome. Ahh memories.

    I don't like vBulletin, which is why i will recode it in VISUAL BASIC, and store all the data in an ACCESS DATABASE.

    who wants to beta?

    No, John and James deserve all of the credit!

    I was just so happy with the idea of using his forum software that I kept pitching the idea of releasing the software in some fashion to the public. I could not leave it alone because I thought it would be hot, and I think it helped.
