I'm painfully aware. I got so frustrated trying to make things work the way I wanted that I ended coding my own forum software from scratch, which ended up being WAY more work than I ever expected. Good to hear about the new info bar, keep up the great work.

The home page i.e. goto http://www.rctech.net is the one that shows the old logo and missing content.

Mine's the same, all empty
The front page is broken right now. We are doing a complete overhaul/re-design in the background right now. Hang tight a few weeks, big upgrade to homepage incoming.

I really like the new layout and features. One question, is there anyway to adjust your "trader rating" to reflect past positive sales?

Contact the people and have them give you a positive rating.

Not sure how it could be slow, per se. We've been monitoring the servers and the site speed has been about the same since we upgraded. The average page size is about 15KB higher after the upgrade, but that's a small percentage of the total.

Regarding the front page, yes it is pretty broken/outdated, and fixing that is the next step here. Well, that and fixing some of these bugs in the forum.

We do plan to make t-shirts at some point featuring this logo. That is still a little ways off though as we want to finish our work on the site first.

We also plan to do another line of shirts that are a bit different, as well as decals for both.

The weather that you see is from Forecastfox add-on for the Firefox browser.

Yea, I screwed up the template and it's missing right now. I'll try to restore this ASAP; was swamped with actual work at work today and could not devote as much time to the site as I'd hoped.

Just want to say all your hard work is very much appreciated! And I'm sure all the kinks will get worked out in time.
