    Hello b.james

    LOL. You are the clown :D

    This is so funny....oh well obviously you don't follow what happens on ETO....like regulars here....
    Just decide to pop in and and say something....anything......

    Really dumb from you:p....Always think before you type. Put your Brain in charge of your Fingers....not the other way around.

    Anyway ETO has a good Crew here. Probably the best on the Net....

    In fact such a good group of people that nobody really bothers to reply to useless posts like yours....except me........

    Because I understand stupidity. And it is a hard road. I can help. If and only you agree to treatment.

    EDIT: The clinic is closed. No more people please.

    I need to preserve my sanity too
    :wideyed:

    Regards,
    tvttech

    His opinion is as valid as the next members...

    Sometimes Moderators have to be the kicking block... I have had to ban members even though I didn't want to...
    Comes with the turf.... Pinch of salt so to speak...

    At least from my perspective, the site's looking/working pretty much like "normal".

    New membership seems to have picked up a bit...

    <EDIT> Curiously, just as I posted this, an error window popped up saying (more or less) that:

    "Sorry, you must wait 15 seconds to perform this action" (or something to that effect).

    But it went ahead and posted a few seconds later (not 15), so... :confused:

    True indeed.

    Did you make a post immediately before trying to comment on this thread?

    There are still quite a few bugs and glitches, but in time they will be worked out.

    Regards,
    Matt

    Yep, definitely must be a glitch. I'm sure they'll be worked out eventually.

    Other than the recent "squeezing" of the page, when loading / posting I suffered no delays as many members complained of (albeit I did post very little in the last ten days).

    Clowns? Wow!

    To the talk about clowns..

    Moderators = Power, Power = Clowns. Not that the mods here are clowns, just sayin'.

    EM (Phil), I've been emailing you with no response. Is the offer of $15 for posting new articles no longer in effect? I was hoping to collect for four new articles that I've posted since our last correspondence.

    Cheerful regards, Mike

    I have been getting more spam to my email.. There was ownership change to one other site at the same time with ETO and I am not blaiming anyone. Just curious.. why I am gettin more spam. Can new owners give my email to advertisement services? I am not sure why I am suddenly getting more spam. The spam is in my language (finnish) (profiled and directed spam).

    In the last three to four weeks, a lot of spam every day. More or less related to Electronics.

    Hi Mr T & everyone

    Any marketing emails that you receive from ETO / EDA or Design World will always have an opt out link at the bottom where you will be removed.

    Emails also will come from ____@newsletters.electro-tech-online.com (for ETO) or ____@notify.edaboard.com (for EDA) also ____@newsletters.wtwhmedia.com.

    Always branded with physical address and always with links to unsubscribe. Most of the time they will have ETO & WTWH branding on them as well.

    Could you make this an opt in rather than an opt out?
