It's very likely that you're right about the new system requirements here, but I worry about the fact that almost every action has a reaction, and not always a positive or desirable one. If I revised my basic system, I can only wonder about the possible consequences down the road. Also, because software and computer programming is not my best suit, I'm usually not in the best position to understand a dilemma I might fall victum to. The perfect example was the position I found my in on 8/16 with the release of the new site here. Fortunately, Ola H. saved the day in that situation, but it's hard to always rely on others to provide ready help.
All things considered, I thinking that I will have to live the undesirable attributes of the new system. It seems like a safer path overall.
