Aaw thankies TLT ;D I do try to make it a nice place, LOL!
And like I say... I'm not as nuts with rules around here Double post if you want, LOL! I do it, so why should I get all high and mighty and stop others from doing the same? And I post pointless drivel all the time, so why should I deny others that opportunity?

Yeah... Sometimes I find that people can be a bit... anal retentive at their boards, LOL! I mean I can understand it in some cases, but to me personally, I set up a board so that people can have a bit of fun - and if I can act stupidly and post ridiculous things, then it's only fair that my members should be able to do the same
As you know there has been a lot of downtime and general unreliability of the forums/site recently. This is thanks in no small part to our current hosting company, so since it's renewal time I have decided to migrate the forums (and it's locals) over to new server premises.
This will hopefully help to alleviate some of the issues we've been putting up with - although it won't help with the spammers unfortunately...
So what does this mean? I will have to temporarily shut up shop (the site and forums) for a brief while so that I can move everything across without things going out of sync. This will probably take just a couple of hours.
Can I access the site straight after? Well, whilst the site contents will have been copied over, the url needs to be redirected to the new servers before it becomes active. This update can take up to a day or two, but is usually a lot less - this will vary according on your ISPs.
OK, I'm ready - when will it happen? I'm planning to do this as soon as possible, 13/11/2006 from around 7pm.
Fingers crossed for a smooth transition - see you on the other side...
