Thought I'd get ahead of the curve a little and see how Chrome, the new web browser from google fares on MLS. So far so good. A couple minor differences here and there, but for the most part it looks good.
I'll have to confirm what Dave has stated that MLS has been off-line for the better half of 1&1/2 to 2 days, and yet the dev site was accessible.
Edit Update-1: Not that the URL was not accessable, but as Dave stated, the only thing displayed was the screen with Emmit's image and the text that stated MLS had been taken into the shops and to check back later.

I have been on most all day each day except Monday this week and have not seen Emmit even once. I always start at the home page and then open the "Active Topics List". I usually start between 10AM and Noon (CDT) and am on until 12midnight.
You need to make sure that you always put the WWW on the front of mylargescale.com when you come to the site. I made some changes late yesterday that did interrupt service if you were not using WWW on the url. I've now fixed it so that the redirect is working again.
Eh.. fast? Realistically, faster isn't really something I look at. All of my web browsing occurs on either work's network, or my cable modem, where speed really isn't an issue. MLS pops up on all browsers. I'm more concerned with site compatibility. Does it look the way it should, does everything function? There are some items on the site that while they don't look quite the way they do on other browsers, they still work. I haven't had time to do a full regression test however.
Have you noticed that on this one specific topic, there is a difference in the color of the text (foreground) of the Subject: Chrome, Angle Bracket in the path, and the Date/Time Stamp of each reply. I'm seeing this with MS/Internet Explorer v6.0.2800
I've checked other topics in this forum and in other forums and they are as they have always been.
An interesting take on Chrome... «snip...»
As you've stated interesting, sort of reminds me back in the early days when no one could understand why Microsoft wasn't bothering with running around suing individuals that pirated their operating system, as others did.
