    Bullies by Colin Kelly

    I enjoyed this story, especially the realistic characterizations. They all seemed so real and believable. While the story was entitled Bullies the story was really all about Mike and how strangers rallied around him in his time of need. Good job, Colin. Mike

  3. Announcing the return to Sanibel Island on Florida's Gulf Coast. All the favorites are back Clay, Ivan & their son Dylan, who is growing up. The third novel Rick Beck's "The Gulf Series" starts Wednesday, May 16th!

    I've just about decided to stay with this theme as it is clearly popular. We will stay with the 'Hallowe'en Theme' black and orange in our logos on both the Forums and the AD Site, however. Mike

    Obituary - Barbara Bush

    Hmmm ... I wouldn't be too critical of "Auntie." She'll be turning 96 herself later this year! Mike

    Finally got one of the themes working about half past midnight. I have another theme I may set up with the Orange/Black Motif. Although I do kind of like this one.

    FYI it appears many other site operators were blind-sided by this same problem. I guess misery loves company!

    AD Forum Woes!

    Yes, the update requires a theme update as well. Nobody spelled that out. Try resetting your users interface theme to IPS default and march onward to get a theme update. Mike

    The new version of the AwesomeDude Forums theme arrived overnight. When we upgraded to the latest version forum software on Thursday we briefly lost use of the site. It is currently in the IPS default theme. Following the AD Site update for 4-21 I'll begin working ib the new AD Forums Theme and the new Forums Theme will go live as soon as all the bugs are worked out. We apologize for thia brief inconvenience but believe the Forums and Forums Theme updates will enhance your AD Forums experience long term.

    AD Forum Woes!

    If you are reading this in the ugly default forum theme, you will know something is wrong. Once, every month or two, the admins of sites get a notice to upgrade to the latest version of the Invision Power Board forum software. I got such a notice this afternoon and followed the usual procedure. However, when the upgrade to version 4.3.0 was completed the AD Community Forums had disappeared. IPS blames IPSFocus - our third party theme provider. IPSFocus says the updated theme will be available later today. If we're lucky... that is IF... we might have the theme updated overnight. IPS reset our site to the default (ugly) theme. Running the AD Site and the AD Forums is not easy and I'm only one person... so your patience would be greatly appreciated. Mike
