  • isn’t everybody using these days?

  • That's what I was thinking of using.

  • I just got that (in Chrome for Linux), but opening another tab fixed the issue for me.

  • Good idea to switch to a better forum software. But please keep the content of this old forum accessible - it is an irreplaceable source for information research on CA ...
