my 20 yr. old son (my IT guru) stopped listening to my complaints until I downloaded and started using Mozilla Firefox. I really don't seem to have any problems with the site. I also run Lavasoft Ad-Aware and Spybot ad tracking removal software regularly. Hope this helps. - Jeff

Nope ... running Apple MacBook Pro/Firefox browser. It's got nothing to do with Adware, Spyware, WhateverWare ... It is phucking PAINFUL

  3. The page width comes out screwed up more and more often.
  4. The "Last Post" column is completely unreliable. It often refers to posts that are days or weeks old. Even worse, it's accuracy is totally random; you can never tell when it works and when it doesn't.
Personally, I guess I don't have a dog in the fight, since I'm a Charter Member, and do not pay. On the other hand, as a Charter Member, I hate to see a web site and community that has been a great resource slip into mediocrity.

For almost 10 years, OSO has been virtually the only boating web site that I spent time on. In the last 2 months, I have found myself spending more and more time on other sites that I neve thought I would sign up for, simply because I don't have to spend my time waiting for those sites to do what they should - perform.

In the last month, I have joined both ScreamAndFly.com and BoatFreaks.org, and tripled my post count on Speedwake.com.

Do as you see fit. So will I.
It's been posted on OSO that Roger Penske is on the board of IB. Maybe you can bring this to his attention next time you talk to him.
