Microsoft would have left Netscape alone except Netscape started writing bloated, buggy software. And there's no way Microsoft wants anyone else in that market.

sure we will... but it'll require something else.

Bandwidth! (no, not BandWidth, Bandwidth!)

Well, either that or the new paging option that I'm going to look at implementing now, because General keeps nagging me about it and I actually have an idea how to do it now.

Basically, you'll set your posts to show by day still, but there will be an extra option to tell it to stop at X posts (like 200 or so) and show a "next page" link.

So even when the threadlist grows huge like it is right now (over 500 posts if its set at 1 day), it'll cap off at a certain point and thus won't strangle the servers bandwidth limitations.

Comments anybody?
