This is one of the projects that is in the future but not the immediate one. I'm waiting on this VERY cool modification that will make a seperate page of links in a VERY cool table that you all will be able to add to and it will be integrated with the board and... and... did I mention that it's VERY cool? /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif It's only in alpha testing right now but I'm told it will go to beta very soon. When it does, I'm all over it... /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/thumbsup.gif
