Sometimes change is not better, it's just different. I realize this is all very subjective and that I am a minority of one. Bottom line, I still love the site and will continue to tell people about it.
I said the same thing on one of the other "skoolie.net revision" posts. I missed being able to see the recent posts. Steve responded & let us know that the old site is still up and running at;

http://www.skoolie.net/index.php

I bookmarked it & use it all the time now.

Oh and here's a link to the other post;

For those who are wondering the bus on the front page is a beautiful Blue Bird that I camped next to two years ago in Iowa City.

This is what steve posted a while ago about the new site in another area.

I think the site looks killer . Cutting edge I really like the way it morphs and looks very high end . The motor coach looks are inconsequential , the graphics of the school buses says it all . You cant make silk purse out sows ear . http://www.btropical.com http://www.enterguard.com

racetearoffs,
I think you are mistaken. The people on the island of Jarotama in the South Pacific make some beautiful bags from the exotic swine moth. I think they would be offended by you dismissing their achievement.

Hey Steve...riddle me this....I was trying the "old site" like you said and it works fine in IE, but when I opened it in Mozilla it brought me to the new homepage. Is one of my Mozilla plug-ins causing that maybe or is it just the difference in the architecture of the two browsers? I've just never seen that before. I love Mozilla, but you can't get rid of IE on XP Besides...IE does handle FTP a little better for me the two times a year I use it.

Thanks for posting the link to the old site. Believe it or not, some of us country folk are stuck having to use 28K baud. Local phone system has not been upgraded to 56K baud (digital network). Phone system has to have at least 56K baud to even consider DSL. Cable is not routed here yet either. Satalite is far to expensive. So, it's 28 Kbaud max. When you migrate to heavy graphics, we tend to become discouraged.

Thats wierd, it works fine with Mozilla for me. I never use IE unless a site says I have to which isint very often.

I wish I could tell ya why it works for me & not you but I have no clue, just letting you know that it does work.
