    [Forum] - (COMPLETE) Planned Downtime

    Hi Guys and Girls,

    Its that time again, where we need to close the forum. I will be closing the forum on Thursday night (30/04/2009) at 10pm for anything upto an hour to perform security upgrades to the board and to add some custom wrote code to hopefully solve a few little annoying occurrences that happen from time to time.

    As always, your patience is appreciated during this harrowing time. Support will be available to those of you who cannot go 60 minutes without an hit via our Facebook page or via Barry's Twitter page.

    Hosting and Support will not be affected.

    Stay Strong, you WILL get through this!

    You'd better not take a stiff drink!! Goodness knows what might happen.
    What do you care what other people think! - Richard P. Feynman

    A person needs only three tools in life: WD-40, duct tape and a hammer. If it doesn't move and it should, use the WD-40. If it moves and it shouldn't, use the duct tape. If either doesn't work, use the hammer.

    Thats OK, I will get used to it in time. Just realised I must now be officially an old fogey and that I hate change!
    But a big thank you to those who have done all the work - even if it was powered by Take Thats new album!
