    Thanks everyone.  Good to see some familiar "faces" and a bunch of new ones.

    Man this place has changed.  Going to take me a bit to find my way around.  I've got a couple of questions for anyone that might be able to answer them.

    We used to be able to find all threads STARTED by someone.  Now all I can seem to find is every dang thread I've ever commented on.  Anybody know if I can just find threads I've started?

    What about the Points system?  Where is that located?  One of the things I liked about this place was the recognition someone earned when they went above and beyond to help someone out or post something new that earned them points.

    Good to be back.  Probably never be the SMF junkie I used to be, but hopefully I won't be on another 6 month hiatus.

    Welcome back Dude! I always enjoyed reading your posts back when I was a lurker. I finally joined in October 2009 and just when I was getting comfortable the board changed to the new format, but I think for the better in the long run. Good to have you back.

    On that note I have also noticed that Chisoxjim has not been around and I enjoyed his posts as well.

    WOW! You were the first one to welcome me to SMF. After lurking for awhile I knew of you well & when you welcomed me I got geedy & told my wife "The Dude" welcomed me! She still thinks I'm crazy?

    PS I miss the points too [​IMG]

    Welcome back, brother!

    Thanks everyone.  It feels good to be missed!  Dudestrami, amongst other things, is on the menu for this weekend.  Stay tuned.  I'll get it all posted this weekend.

    Bearcarver, thanks for the info.  Bummer on your answers.  Kind of a pain to find old posts.  Hopefully Jeff and crew will see this and decide if enough people want it to bring it back. 

    Oh, and just to set the record straight, I did not run off with cowgirl.  I went looking for her, but much to my disappointment, she was able to allude me.
