Here is what I do not like about the new forums in the list above this General area.
When I want to make a new post, I have to try and decide where is most appropriate place to put it?
While reading the web page of a former MacCentral contributor, Deb Shadovitz, I found a list of helpful Mac sites. One led me to "MacTech Daily News Scan". When I got there, I realized I had skimmed over that main MacTech page, noting that it was too busy and cramped in information/text for me to zero in on anything.
I gave it some extra effort and read it once quickly, and then went back and tried to pay more specific attention. I disccovered a new Safari version out today! I went to Software Update and now have the new version.
So, Neil, I will be a daily reader of the main page.It has been a long time since I daily read a MacNews page.
Many, many years ago I even subscribed to MacTech mag, paper version, but decided it was too technical for my purposes. I guess I figured the web site was beyond me too!

Have you given a full-featured newsreader a fair shakedown cruise?
I used to hate newsreaders (like I'd experienced with Communicator and in Thunderbird) until I discovered the free NetNewsWire RSS aggregator
It's a quick way to efficiently gather all the news you want into one place. Skim, read, click-through to the originating site for more detail, if you want. Little preview windows that you can collect in a sidebar for one-click revisits. Full updates on all feeds are just a simple "Command + Shift + R" away.

Sorry I confused youse guys. Everything here is honkey dorey.
My personal preferences are just two forums: Stan's Lounge and Political Sandbox. They are the ones that interest me and keep me busy reading and entertained.
I'm certain hundreds of folk will be here joining the Tech threads once they are open. I'm too old and not interested enough to dig into that stuff that I enjoyed when I was employed and a lot younger.
Good luck to you all and continued success with these forums.
Please disregard the post we're discussing. I appreciate it.
