Thanks. I like it better as well, and I have more control over things.
I don't have the time to really get into the guts of the code, but I think I have enough going now that I can hang in for natural upgrades as they are released. There are some features that other forum software has but I can wait.
Now all we need to do is get more people to post, I can finally keep all the threads and not lose them like EZboard.
