i know you are a devotee of cool iris, but my pc gets a bit cranky when i use it, Stephen.

as for the otter bar - i guess i am another old fart who doesnt care for it. maybe if it was on the top of the web page instead of the bottom?

The Cooliris is pretty cool it has to be said! Your computer must be getting on a bit if it wont run it without issues!! Time to treat yourself perhaps. :-)

It's not brilliant as it may be annoying, maybe we just need time to get used to it (remember our reactions when forum themes had been changed?).
But it's rather good. Some interesting news (Division Bell stamps, I gotta find those, not only as a Floyd fan*, but also as a long-time stamp collector!), where people online are from, videos,... you know.

And, of course, the translation to Russian is hilarious (can sometimes be humorous a bit*), and Keith J, your name gets translated as well :lol:

*I just translated this post, before this edit... the word "fan" got the other translation it has in Russian > ventilator :lol: > "as a Floyd ventilator" <ii> :smt003 :smt003 :smt003 :smt043 :smt043 :smt044 :smt044 )

Very amusing! Is there a word for "fan" in Russian or is it just a ventilator? What about "fanatic"?

"Ventilyator", "fen". :lol:

Well, fanatic still means fanatic, but in my dictionary it would mean "a fan of Tic-Tac" :lol:

I'm not raving and drooling about this bar, but I can tell you it also works on Google Chrome (Linux and Windows). Except I don't see a chat button.

I removed the chat button as it was taking up space and nobody was really using it. Piece of crap.

People seem to be engaging with the toolbar from looking at the site statistics. So that is good.

The very first thing I did was minimize it, thinking I would check it out later - never really did...I don't like it. But, maybe new people will like it.

Suddenly, I don't feel so bad about not being able to have it, for whatever reason.

The chat button would probably have been the only feature of it that I would have used.

:lol: mosespa is going to keep on about this tool bar that just about everybody except him can see!

I think I'm on his ignore list so I empathise with the tool bar.
