Once you get used to it, I think you'll find this new site a lot better! For example there's a photo gallery where you can see pictures of places other people have been to and you can upload you own pics too if you want. On the old site you needed a PhD in IT to upload pics, whereas here it's pretty easy (even I can do it) and it will get even easier once Mark gets the automatic resizing thing sorted.
Also there's automatic linking to url addresses that you can just click on.... no need to do the laborious wotsitATwhateverDOTcom. thing now.
Also a large selection of smileys.
Also an edit function (of sorts) so you can edit your posts if you make a typo.
Also easier to navigate because you don't have to scroll down pages and pages to find the post you want.
etc etc etc.
You'll see, it's great!
