M/M Bowers, after struggling with the previous message board system for the past few years, it's nice to see a UBB in it's place!

Growing pains suck, but I'm glad you and your hubby didn't give up. You have an extremely valuable site here, and it's nice to see it expand beyond pure tech!

Hi, Stewart!

Glad to see you made it over here!

Yes, the UBB is definitely a VAST improvement over our old board. We're very thankful to have some loyal visitors that were willing to help make it possible. We've been wanting to expand the board for quite awhile to allow a more "friendly" atmosphere.

Now that we've gotten off our behinds and started making some major changes on the web site, we'll be doing a lot more in the near future.

Thanks!

Kathy

Yep! When motivation strikes (and the weather stays too crappy to do anything outside), you gotta take advantage of it!

In order to have enough server space to run the UBB, we had to switch ISP's about two weeks ago (actually, we're still in transition from the old site). We went from having 25MB to 200MB of server space AND our new account will run ASP (active server pages) which will allow us to make the site much more interactive - (i.e. searchable registration database, etc.).

We're also finally seeing the light at the end of the tunnel on getting registrations caught up. When that's done, the registration stats will be back on-line and photo gallery will be caught up.

In addition to all this, we're planning a cosmetic and functional web site re-design to make better use of our Frontpage 2000 software.

Whew! How's that?!

Sure, we like to keep the info in the database as current as we can. Just e-mail us with the VIN and whatever updated info you have (i.e. no longer own it or wrecked or whatever). We'll add the updates to the database.

Thanks!

OMG! That was a long time ago - LOL! Hopefully, my web design skills have improved since then.

Yeayyy! I'll finally see the info on my car there!

Hey Carl, LTNT! I guess I won't be needing all those complex codes you taught me to use. Codes used for posting links on the old board! UBB is soooo much easier!

Two spinning wheels, Mike? Musta been a bit before my time. I did start frequenting the GT Board back in '99 though. Back when I first got my Mustang and knew NOTHING about it, I found this site (the old board) after doing a web search for Mustang info.

Hey, does Jim Signorelli still post here? How about Moki? Or Scott (LTD Scott...from southern CA)

Stew, that was years back, I think 98 maybe? As for jim, I saw him posting here over the summer, but I"m not sure if he's still around or not. Moki, I haven't seen. Scott is on the corral, I have his IM name too, but I do'nt talk to him that much these days. I also have sideway's im . Yeah, UBB is great, the only thing about it that's not the best is the registratino deal. I've noticed that traffic here has slowed some due to the UBB, but even though you get alot less posts from unknown users, and passersby, it tends to form a community of folks who always come back all in the give'n take I guess.

Since I don't frequent the Corral too often, I haven't seen any of his posts there. I also have his AIM name on my buddy list, but I haven't talked with him in IM's in a long time.

I agree about the sense of community formed by the users on a UBB. Just look at M&M! The get-togethers and party's that have been attended by the members, as well as the future parties that are being planned in conjunction with Ford related car shows.

Then there's Ed's health problems and the way we all got together, chipped in, and bought him his computer so he could stay online. And of course there's the airline ticket we bought for Steve and his wife, so he could attend the car show in Raleigh.

I can see this site that Kathy and Dave have, becoming like M&M. Especially because they have the same type of rules (no flames) that we have at M&M.

When you have a good site, by good people, populated by good members, it normally works out real well.

I'm sure the new UBB for the GT Board will work out real well too!

Hey while you guys are at it, ya wanna chip in and pay for my tuition!? Or while if that's to much, get me and extra 200hp? LOL j/k. I think what you guys did for ed was really cool. I remeber reading that post, thinking wow....its nice to know that people still reach out for one another sometimes. It can get pretty frustrateing these days. Which...is another reason I like my car so much. I'm fortunate, most(not all) of the people I meet with mustangs are always willing and eager to help. EVERY time I've been roadside for one reason or another, another stanger has ALWAYS stopped and offered assistance. I'm still waiting for the chance to return the favor. It's not just the cars, it's the sense of community that tends to come with them I like the most. Maybe my area is weird?

Same here FISHTAIL, I always stop to help fellow stangers on the road, unless it's a 7-tone faded, rusted paintjob 4-banger with bald tires and a not-so-friendly looking driver. lol

Now, as for "decent" stangs, even 4-bangers, I usually stop, and end up having a half-hour conversation about ME car!
