Salutations from Down-Under ... well, that's not strictly true ... I'm penning this missive from Lage in Germany, just 311ks from Amsterdam, but our home (Perth, Western Australia) is 14,134kms away (as the crow flies). I've seen that it appears I am the only Australian (or New Zealander for that ma...

Re: New layout on the Forum

As I'd switched to Windows 10, for a minute or two, I thought the new layout was a Windows glitch, but eventually realised it was a new layout. I really like it, fresh is good! Thanks as always Jarkko and Rauli
