    Oddity I discovered

    It is in regards to this forum, I normally use the non metro version of IE 10 to view the messages for this board, but when I went thru the metro version of IE 10 none of our signatures, or avatars were there. I jumped back to the desktop IE10, brought up the forum, and they ARE here. Quite strange.

    Hello Mike,

    They are showing for me in IE10 Metro below. I'm guessing you may not have been logged in to the site at the time. They will not show when viewing the site as a guest instead of being logged in.

    LoL Brink, that might be a good possibility. I didn't pay attention to see if I was logged in, or not. I just took it for granted I was.

    The other day I was logged in from the desktop IE but had to log in again when switching to metro IE.

Statistical Oddity
Windows 7 is supposed to overtake Windows XP (again) by the end of August. Assuming this is true, you do realize what will happen? Windows 8 Upgrade will come out next month, most of the upgrades will be from Windows 7, and XP will once again be the world's dominant operating system.
