Re: I'm dedicating most code changes/improvements to ..

A few more things I can remember

1. site search »/nsearch for posts now gives you info down the left hand side allowing you both see what forums are involved in a search, and to narrow your search dynamically. (stole the idea from fatwallet)

2. a long topic of posts can be searched (search box is above any topic view). No matter how many pages it is, all hits are displayed up to your pagination limit

3. »/prefs/forum includes an option for 'big thumbnails'. Pictures attached to posts instead of appearing at 200 wide will appear at 600 wide! Example topic to see the benefit of this: »Might get an XBOX360 just for this game

4. I think instant message indicator should flash yellow or red correctly now

5. The speed test page shows the global daily limit for the user at the top as little red blocks (11 tests maximum per 24 hour period)

6. The grouped line monitors are pretty much setup and working ok and the glitches/improvements are done.

I can't remember what else.

That is one bloody good enhancement!

could you attempt similar grouping for the threads?

That's great!

It seems something screwed up in the process though, it is displaying the topic text twice under each topic listed.

You mean the excerpt from each post? some of them do repeat themselves a bit, longer posts don't.

yeah, that's what I mean

You are right about the longer ones though, they don't repeat.

For example, here is a page of search results. repeated text from the yellow is highlighted in green. It just seems kind of silly to repeat text...

The speed test selection page now shows "distance" from the user to the speed test site.

How is that calculated? Mine is showing 200+ miles to Parsippany - and the only way that's possible is if it's calculating the route the packets are taking based on a tracert....

geo center of your zip, or the town your IP is supposedly based in (if you don't have a zip) to geo center of the zip of parsippany, via straight line distance calculated using the haversine formula which is accurate except around the poles.

If this is true, and lets say I have a IP that is based in Virgina and I'm from Texas wouldn't it incorrectly calculate this?

the database of IPs tries to guess your location, not the location of the ISP. It is mostly correct.
