January 5: The Posting Guidelines and TOS have been updated. Merry Happy New Year, everyone!!

December 10: A New Look and Some New Functionality: In the Forums there is a new icon in the top nav of each category - a circle with some sight lines in it. Click on this icon to be notified when new topics in that forum are added. Next to each topic in each forum is an icon that, when clicked, enables notifications of updates to that topic even if you have not contributed to it.

December 10: I have started working on fixing some of the lingering interface and usability issues on the site. Among other things, the site now displays properly in phone browsers. Thanks to all TCL members who pointed out things that are not working they way they think they should be.
