Seconded - it's a very handy tool to keep track!

Re: iSpy

Wasn't it supposed to have been gone ages and ages ago? They removed the link to it on all the pages of MTF, but we were all still able to use it b/c we had the direct link.... I remember Steve saying ispy was one of the worst drains on the server, so maybe that's why MTF is loading so much faster now?

The direct link won't work anymore because the function was removed in the latest upgrade.

iSpy was a HUGE drain on the servers.

i haven't used it for ages but i do remember some days ago while ing at the uni that i was trying to remember the direct link in order not to refresh it each 30 sec...but it's true i realize it must be a hard bargain on server's speed to check on a couple hundred threads and "post" it in real time,especially that it was used by several ppl in the same time.

That's a good reason to get rid of it, I suppose. Too bad, but an understandable decision.
