changes in SillyDog701 Message Centre

SDMCAs discussed during End of Year 2006 Online Chat, we decided to split “Mac OS and Linux” subforum into two separate sub-forums. One for Mac and one for Linux. The Mac section is called "Apple and Mac OS" and Linux section is called “Linux and Other OSes”.

We also made some adjustments to our sub-forum names, “Netscape, Mozilla and Firefox” is renamed to “Firefox, SeaMonkey and Netscape” and “Communicator and Earlier NS” is now called “Communicator”.

We also welcome Pedro Saraiva (Pu7o) as our new moderator for Linux and Other OSes forum.

SillyDog701 Message Centre is our free tech support forum, we focus on browser support as well providing a community space for almost any topic. Every member is welcome to chat and participate in our forum.
