    In the last 3 weeks I have decided to write and launch an off-road website dedicated to its users and the rebuild of my 85 K5.. The Code, Database, Hosting, and Design was 100% written/implimented by yours truely. The site is still in its beta phase, so please feel free to email me with problems, site feedback, questions, or just to chat. I will be adding new features daily, but most of it is there. Enjoy...

    Hey dude thanks.. Like I said above its just 3 weeks old, so there is quite a bit of work to be done.. I have yet to build the articles section(probably tomorrow), and have to build the MORE &gt;&gt; on the homepage for the tips, users, and trails. Also I forgot to make it automatically log a user in after account creation. It will all come together real soon now(tm) :)

    Sorry about that.. I have the site setup so it will not cache any part of the site to your local machine for reasons I would explain but you guys probably aren't interested :) The error either came from you selecting an alias that was already taken(doubt it) or your password, and confirm password did not match.. So yes when you go back it will clear the form. Sorry.. It was this, or everyone have to refresh pages if new items where say posted to the forums..

    Tried twice and got the same message both times. By chance, does this have to do with me running IE5.5? Same issues with NorthSky when running IE 5.5. Let us know when this bug is fixed............and I will try to sign up again.

    Interesting.. I will try to create an account with ie 5.5 today.. I use 5.0 because of the known bugs with 5.5.. Actually now that I think about it there is a bug with form submission and password fields.. I will look for a fix.

    Rocko - Would you believe that Jason left his digital camera on, and guess what happens when the battery died :( Atleast we got your pics.. they were awesome by the way. I can't wait to go again.

    i have IE5.5 and it worked 4 me but i also have AOL so maybe that makes a difference because it was stated that you cant make a coloradok5 web site with 5.5 and i did that to but maybe AOL uses it differently

    Looks like a good site..and much potential....just some problems here...I am still in the stone age and the stuff that loads eats TONS of processor time...I am sitting here waiting for the username thing to load and its been over a minute...and it ain't showed nuthin and locked up my processor.....think you could kill some of that overhead?

    I entered my alias and it said it was already used.
    So I went back and changed it. But it also stored my first selection. So now Im in there twice.

    So far just one problem. When I go to log off the site it won't let me. (Processor keeps running trying to connect with your site). Other than that, pretty cool. Hope to post pics this week.
