I'll be disabling the forum for a few minutes at 2200 UTC (the east coast of the US is UTC-5, work out your local time), as the first part of a software update.

More info as I make it up. Cheers!

Ok, we're up and running!

I'll worry about the look over the next few days.

This is just the default theme. I will be exploring other things, though if nothing else I will make this one darker.

Much better: it's all legible, and the ghost of Billy Marsh no longer lurks pretentiously large.

Ayup, Mr. BF.
Long time no see, how's life treating you these days?

Rusty,
Would it be possible to make external links open in a separate tab?
That way, we can keep our "unread" threads marked accordingly. I know I didn't phrase that very well, I'm trying to fight my way out of a disorienting fug, induced by a nasty cold virus. I feel terrible!

Looking good, working well. Time for a change of avatar.

Maybe a "Wish List" would be a good idea... Or not... (It would, after all, add yet another forum to the 367 already in existence. Hmmm.... Is that a suggestion, I'm making).

Fair do's: the Suggestions and Moans forum is the obvious place for requests and ideas about the board - once the digital dust has cleared, and Rusty has relaxed from juggling umpteen Gigaballs.

Stum': Not so bad, mate. Had to give up twanging because of worn out thumb and finger joints, treated with NSAIDs (the pain, that is), which caused gastric mayhem and various tube-down-your-throat-oscopies... Oh dear: I'm still under the influence of one of those mass-printed "What we have been doing" letters in a Christmas card.
It started with something like, "Hi, everybody, we hope you are all well and wish you a merry Christmas", and continued with an A4's-worth of the ailments - recurring, chronic or merely temporary - that they'd all suffered in the past 12 months. Ill-mannered? Definitely - it's not Christmas yet.

Hey - how about a "Favourite Grumbles" board?

Meanwhile - well done, Rusty. Thank you for what I am sure has been a storm of midnight oil-burning, nail-biting, internet-cursing, nerve-shredding, brow-furrowing...

I'll get my coat.

One suggestion, no big deal either way
Could we change our avatar and /or sign-off without changing all the past posts,really just want to see the steady progression of Ric's hairline :mrgreen:
