Just what I was looking to find out when my reminder popped up about the September 15 date.

Thanks

Seriously - people should relax!!

In all likelihood, the URL will be the same so if you "miss" the debut, the next time you try to go to MouseOwners.com you'll be taken to the new site. Your old credentials won't work because it will assume you are a new person. So, you just re-reigster using your old credentials, or you completely reinvent yourself and become a brand new person.

Until then, if you are taken to this site, it means the new site isn't up yet and you can read and post to your heart's content.

The whole thing will be EASY!!! For you all.

Dirk

For nostalgia purposes.

I remember this! My first modem (also 300 baud) had an actual switch mounted on the side of the computer...I had to flip that switch when the other computer answered to start all the tones & stuff going. I later got an automatic one which was much easier!

I think I may reinvent myself...always wanted an alter ego.
