John, you said that the alphasoftware forum seems to be the same as this. Not in my display. At the Alpha Message board, if you pick Alpha Desktop, you are greeted with a screen that gives you the choice of picking the latest version of Alpha, the one before that, the one before that, a Features wish list, and, then, more older versions of Alpha. Thus you pick the version you want to view, just like in the old forum for TC. Once you open the version you want, then you get a forum like this. Give it another look, I think you'll agree.
