I have been reading the nv2 messages for some time using my password for nv1. There are two that I cannot access: pre release and conversion.
They apparently opened these up to nv1 users after the last round of complaints but did not want to tell anyone.
I also seem a little perplexed there is not much traffic in nv2 as one might think.
The latest post to nv2 came on june 12 and is quite interesting. It might be just as interesting to see if Phil answers the questions.
