Road to Hana in Maui is furthest thing from "Death Road".
In fact it is a road brimming with life with its lush forests, with its milky waterfalls, with its verdant gardens laced with tropical fauna and flora, resting under the shadows of mist, with its palm trees kissing the sky decorated with rainbows, with clouds caressing its unapproachable peaks, with exotic fruits and berries covered with pearls of raindrops, with tall grasses swaying to the tunes of island wind, while clouds and sun play hide and seek, with Pheasants and other birds of paradise roaming freely along its lava-rocks sprinkled coast!
However, the very same road is filled with harrowing turns, narrowing bridges, rock falls and mud slides, blind curves, wet swerves, exposed curbs, vertigo cliffs, and at times rough. Abundance of car wrecks piled along the side of the road, remind us that while there is life everywhere, there is death lurking nearby.
Still I wanted to end with "Road to Life"!
This is a hotly debated topic on nearly every forum in existence. Some people love signatures, some hate them. Signatures make it easier for spammers to get links past the filters, but also make it easier for people to find your portfolio.
They can also clutter up the interface, making it harder to find the content in the posts.
As most of you have noticed, DGrin looks a little different today! That's because we've finally upgraded the software behind DGrin to use "Vanilla Forums". Things will be a little different and they'll take some getting used to, but we're in a much better platform that will allow us to continue having amazing photography and SmugMug related discussions!
I urge you to try posting a few comments and familiarize yourself with the new software, and to post any questions or feedback you may have in this thread.
You'll notice we switched away from BBCode and over to Markdown, since Markdown is now becoming the standard for applying text markups to your posts.
We'll continue to tweak the look and feel and cleanup some of the threads and categories as we get comfortable with the new DGrin. Stay tuned for more!
