Changes over the weekend... Site News
I worked on a couple things over the weekend, one minor, one quite major. The minor change is the addition of (gasp!) search instructions to the Advanced Search page. We've had a hint with instructions, and they're in the FAQ, but now they're on the actual search page as well.

The second (and much larger!) project was the upgrading of the macosxhints forums to version 3.0 of the vBulletin software. After a few hours of upgrading and tweaking, the forums are online with a brand new look -- basically, just the default vBulletin theme, though there are three or four more themes coming in the near future. In addition to the new look, there are some great new features, and we've now (finally!) activated images in postings as well as file attachments -- so now you can post pictures of something you may be having issues with, or attach a log file to a trouble report.

If you haven't checked them out before, the forum site is a very good troubleshooting resource. Registration is completely free (but separate from the main site, until someone wants to tackle a Geelog vBulletin registration process integration for me!). Check it out if you're looking for an answer to an OS X question...

Hi Rob,

Is there a reason your not using Blaine's Forum plugin for Geeklog? He just upgraded to 2.3. Have you moved over to Geeklog 1.3.9?

A friendly mac user who also uses geeklog,
