Well after using the poetry greeting card service here at Pip, I do too.

I was delighted to get an e mail today from an old college buddy, and since she used to enjoy reading my stuff I thought I'd send her a card.

Well, first, I must say, the pics available for use with the e cards could use some updating. (I think I complained about that like, four years ago, and I got a "maybe soon.") I'm hoping this time I'll get an unequivocal SOON.

AND?

I can't make changes to colors or text without using the "back" button, which wouldn't bother me, BUT? When you use that durn thang, you lose all the info in the text of the message as well as the e mail addy, and the preferences previously set that ya might wanna keep.

And? WHY can't I send a card from Mature Content?

(WAH.)

And okay, okay, I realize it's not the end of the world, and there are more important things to worry about, but it was just annoying.

I feel better now.

An answer would also be nice...but?

sigh, I know, I know, SOON.

(and please, nobody tell my sister I groused about this, as I'll have to hear HER ask why I just don't get off me lazy behind and make my own card.)

LOL. You're points are all well taken, Karen. Yes, the software is getting a bit stale after six years (the ecards at the main site use an updated version of the software in the forums, but those, too, are about four years old). And, yes, the graphics could probably be enlarged a bit now that computers and Internet connections have improved.

However (a word I use almost as often as 'soon'), the unfortunate loss of information, such as the message and email address, when you use the Back button is a function of your browser, not of the software. Ever notice how fast a page is usually displayed when you click the Back button? That's because the page should be coming directly from your browser's cache. Surely, dear one, you don't intend to blame ME for what is essentially a short-term memory loss?

Okay, okay, I hereby promise our next software upgrade won't require either you OR your browser to remember stuff our server should already know. Satisfied? (And, no, you probably shouldn't go there ... )
