Sorry to hear you couldnt get tyo mx-system.com, its certainly up now and I didn't spot any drop in traffic in the logs to suggest it went down at any point on friday, so hopefully just a small glitch

General note on names so as to stop confusion
mx2.7.3 is the latest 2.7.x version and this branch will now continue until release of mx2.8 or mx3
Users using 2.705 or below should think about upgrading as this is the last version guaranteed to provide upgrades from 2.70x branches.

Documentation for this release should be available within the next week.

The portal is "choppy" cuz it has too much stuff on it. when you scroll down, its not smooth... like I said, its very "choppy"... sorry, thats the only word I can think of to describe how it feels like..

so what's your point?

i mean that has nothing to do with the portal itself...its an issue over at mx-system.com since WE like lots of frontpage info...if you fancy you could use our portal system generating blank pages ;)

please, this is not some kind of 'show off' - topic...

btw, whats 'choppy' is actually our new theme which use semitransparent table cells...maybe not that wise if only focused on speed...but its cool :-)
