BTW, I'm glad you found your way over here...

Thank you! Of course, I enjoy being thought of as a know-it-all, which is why I presume to write posts like this in the first place. ;) But yeah, I hope this board works out in it's attempt to relieve some of the pressure building on the Microsoft board. I'm not sure it will, efforts like this never seemed to work entirely on Usenet, but I'm willing to give it a try.

...and hope the # of posts increases dramatically since this is the first day of action on this board.

I hope so too. Part of the reason I think tech talk works on the other board is because it's techies and non-techies discussing it.

Exactly! It is this conflict itself, IMHO, that spurs the conversation. Ego-stroking is the grease which allows information transfer to take place on a discussion board, otherwise people won't make the effort to get their opinions and facts aired in the first place. It's a delicate balance. :)
