At long last, the forum’s advanced editor has been updated! Although it has continued to work... it hasn’t really been working perfectly. If you’ve seen all those forum posts that seem to start with a blank space – well, that was the advanced editor when used with Firefox. There were also some minor random bugs and problems.

As 2011 draws to a close and we all look to see just where we put that 2012 calendar, our thoughts go out to everyone who has contributed to making Remote Central such a great place to be for the past year.
This includes our valued advertisers, without whom we would not be here (support those that support RC!); all of our volunteer forum moderators who do a fantastic job fighting spam and maintaining the peace; the great folks at ipHouse.com who keep our server running in tip-top shape and always available; plus the custom installation and control community as a whole – everyone who takes the time to interact by sharing their knowledge, wit, files (thanks djy!)... or even just their two cents!
Please accept my heartfelt appreciation – and all the best for the coming year!
