Site maintanance wed 4th Aug

Hi
  I will be doing some maintenance tomorrow morning to upgrade the software that runs our main site. This will involve locking the forum for up to an hour tomorrow morning (UK time).
  Sorry for the inconvenience.   
     Dave

Probably around 10-11am by the time I have set everything up. In theory it will go smoothly and I wouldn't have to lock the forum, but there is just a possibility of it going horribly wrong and have to recover from a backup so I would rather lock it and avoid loosing any posts.

Ok the forum is back, it all went smoothly as far as I can see. If you notice any new bugs (particularly with the main site) I would really like to know. Thanks

I just had a fly land on the monitor whilst displaying this page.  It is a new bug.

Ah yes, but that's a bug on your system, not the forum.
...And its claws are as big as cups, and for some reason it's got a tremendous fear of stamps! And Mrs Doyle was telling me it's got magnets on its tail, so if you're made out of metal it can attach itself to you! And instead of a mouth it's got four arses!
