New look

Postby gstark on Sat Apr 01, 2006 1:15 am

I've uploaded and installed the new features, and they should now be fully operational. Please be sure to let me know how you like the changes and the new look.


If you have any problems, please just force a refresh, using Ctrl-F5 on your browser.

OK ...

I've just put the site back to the way it should be.

You'll probably need to use this link if you're using the net site, or this link if you use the com version to reset your main page and restore some semblance of normality.

For the late risers and those in other parts of the world, this link will let you see what we did.

We hope you enjoyed our little bit of AFD fun, complete with its own giant dust bunny. :)

Have you tried blowing at your screen?

I used the Giotto on mine and it went away.

What's all the fuss about? I don't see any blue blob and the text is running off the edges of my screen! Isn't it great that Olympus has started making vibrating 4/3 computer monitors? ;-)

Good one guys, the DX version certainly gives me more reach :-)

Once I got rid of the dust bunny from hell, all is fine,

HAPPY APRIL FOOLS. I hope that is the case. Or has Canon bought out the site? :lol:

There is a rather large dust bunny on my screen sensor.
