Evidently, you don't live in Gilchrist.

No, thank God! I don't think anyone lives in Gilchrist anymore. I live NE of Fort Worth in Keller. I have a cousin who lives N of Houston. I invited her and her family and the dogs to come hang out with us until Ike blew over but they fastened the storm shutters, stocked up on water and, except for the loss of one tree and a bit of fence, are just fine.

Thank god that your family made it through the storm ok. I was holding my breath the entire day after Ike hit - I was convinced that Galveston and the surrounding areas were going to be dessimated and was worried about all those people hadn't evacuated. As bad as it was for people in Texas, it could have been a lot worse.

I couldn't believe the number of people who chose to stay after what happened to New Orleans, what with the National Weather Service predicting a possible total annihilation of Galveston and other low coastal areas. Sadly, they are still searching for bodies. I prefer the high ground.

Default I wish...

I absolutely love the new format, but I really miss one thing from the old. It used to be when you miss a letter, you'd be prompted and the missing box would have the focus. Now, if you miss a letter, you get a new screen, have to click on the link and wait for the puzzle to reappear. It feels like it takes forever to get back.

Any chance, Stephen?




PS: I sent this before I noticed the direction this thread had turned and read the immediately previous posts. I would have prefaced my "wish" message with an expression of concern for all those in the damaged areas. We just had plenty of rain and a tree fall on our place. I feel terrible about all those who lost much more than we did.

I agree with Laura's wish... the pop-up box when you miss a letter is much better!

Better a pop-up box than pop-up ads.

I concur. A pop-up box for a missing letter is both faster and easier for the solver.
