Just wanted to mention (and start a thread about) just how nice the new site looks!

I'm looking through the new style, playing around with the options. Looks uber-slick, folks!

No suggestions at the moment, but I can tell it's not fully running yet, so I'm going to keep poking around...

I dont like that design. Looks not individual. (Maybe because it just isn't.)

Well, indeed it's a forum and not self-designed, we don't see
reasons to even code such piece of software ourselfes
(especially, as imho it's hard to compete with vBulletin)

Same for the style. Why create the wheel over and over again?
We added the functionality we already used at our old portal
(although it's a complete new code as backend changed from
phpBB to vB) and added here and there some new custom-
graphics. I personally (this is my opinion as user, not admin!)
like clean and straightforward-designs, nothing that adds
"clickibunti" like some other websites prefer it. Basically, we
wanted the same functionality as at old portal combined with
the power of vB as backend. We will later add also fully own
designed websites to the page, although I don't see much
benefit here. At the end, the new design more or less
shows the favors of the webmaster and it seems that most
users think the same when it comes to usability etc.

But it's obviously not possible to satisfy everyone, we're all
human and have different tastes about whats hot and
what not - the general tenor is positive so it seems to me
that we don't ruined it completely ;)

@bbe: sorry to hear that, I wish I could say the same about
your website, unfortunately, I like your design ;)
(although it seems it's individual - but I dislike your ipb
(not your fault - in general every ipb)

This forum sucks. It's slow, broken, ugly, designed by morons and lacks porn&cracks.

That's why I keep comming back! :D

different opinions, lots of individuals here ;)

Youve done a great job. I like the new design and I hope Daemon Tools 4 will have the same as the site.

To be honest. It looks like a fake Torrent site made by MPAA to get info about piracy users. Should be more clean. And whats tha vB for? There is better alternativs.

But, I am happy on your behalfs with a new website, and soon a new release of DT. Keep up the good work :)

Hey birger_nord, i checked out your blog, in it you mentioned that you preordered xbox 360. You also said "This will be released on the 2. of September." Do mean that xbox 360 will be released next year because I heard that it was to be released in august this year. Or is that just the release date for where you live.

White backgrounds are bad for your eyes. Office supplies sell special screens to protect your eyes from them. This is a medical fact. People that spend a lot of time on screens with white backgrounds are damaging their eyes. That is the reason the industry went from white background monitors to Green/Amber screens. The old colors when a registered user logged in was so much easier on the eyes. Like somone posted earlier, 'I am going blind looking at the new site'. They do not know how true that is medically.

P.S. I have $100 protective screens on the front of all my computers. You can also use high rated sunglasses to do the same thing.

lmfao, if you get them, please post a pic of yourself wearing them! :P

On a note however, sitting too close to the monitor for extended periods of time is the cause of eye problems, not the white background, the brightness can only add to the problem, turning down your brightness/gamma can help and would have saved you $100 bucks on them screens.

It is also recommended to prevent eye damage, to exercise your eyes regulary during extended periods in front of a screen/monitor helps and will also reduce headaches. (rotate your eyes around one way, then the other ect.., you get the idea.)

But, white, and specially "bright" will not damage everyones eyes, some people have weak eyes, part of life. But it does not matter what color, it depends also on screen size, size of font your looking at (if on a very large screen and very small font) as well as refresh rate. How much strain your putting your eyes through makes more a difference than the color of the site.
