Yeah, I will stop visiting the site if the option to use the proper (Classic) interface is removed. I've left other sites over redesigns that weren't as bad as the currently proposed one.

I don't remember the exact date that I signed up for an account here, but I do remember I had been using the site for a bit when registration became available.

I knew this day was coming, and I guess I'm glad that it's taken as long as it has. But it doesn't have to happen; timothy, you can make this stop. I understand your bosses want this to be the new default, but removing the old one *WILL* drive away community. And without community, this site is nothing.


+ - Daylight Savings Time Change

Beginning in the spring of 2007, DST start and end dates for the United States will transition to comply with the Energy Policy Act of 2005. In 2007, DST dates in the United States will start three weeks earlier (2 a.m. on the second Sunday in March) and will end one week later (2 a.m. on the first Sunday in November). I've already started to get mail from software vendors about issuing patches to their software. Sysadmins like myself may be inundated with patches and config changes to reflect this change."
