    Still getting used to this "new" format, but it isn't too terribly difficult. Thanks Arie, for updating and keeping us together! :)
    I do have a question about the "Members Online Now" section. What the heck is a "robot "?? o_O

    "Total: 422 (members: 8, guests: 361, robots: 53) "

    I'm sure you computer savvy folks already know the answer to this, but I'm just a little curious.

    Thanks all & hope you have an enjoyable spring day!:)

    Web Robots (also known as Web Wanderers, Crawlers, or Spiders), are programs that traverse the Web automatically. Search engines such as Google use them to index the web content, spammers use them to scan for email addresses, and they have many other uses.
