    Looks like I broke the site around 2 weeks ago without realising :( Everything should be back up and running properly again now.

    I'm moving the image storage back to the server, so there might be some images not working for a while until the job completes.

    Inactive User Removal

    As part of the cleanup I'm doing, I've been through all accounts on the site, and the criteria used: have registered before May 2015, and their last visit was May 2015, and where they have made zero posts (2,695 accounts in total). All these accounts have been deleted from the forum, as their...

    Announcement Forum Software Update

    You might have noticed, the site looks quite different again. I've upgraded to XenForo2, which is a large upgrade from the old version. The theme is back to the default until I can make some adjustments, but it's a lot less "fussy" than the old custom version we were using (that needed an add-on...

    Update Removal of Ads

    With the upcoming GDPR affecting how all websites use and maintain user data, along with having to have users explicitly accept cookies and being made aware of what each cookie is, and what it is used for, I've made the decision to remove all adverts from the site. Google Adsense and Skimlink /...

    Announcement TapaTalk

    I've bit the bullet. As I don't use the site as much, I want you guys to have as much access to it as possible, so I've added TapaTalk back. However, it things don't work correctly.....I won't support the investigation of the fault through TapaTalk, I'll simply be keeping the application updated.

    Update Google Ads

    I've been working on reducing the number of ads being displayed, as there were a few of them that weren't really bringing in any revenue, and just adding to the lag of the page rendering. I've removed all the adex ads that were previously there, and limiting to 3 ads per page being displayed...

    Amy's Fiat 500

    Took it in for the MOT on Monday. Failed on the near side rear shock. Had to get a new one fitted. As I'm in between houses at the minute, I just paid the garage to do the work, as I really can't be arsed at the minute.

    I'm working on a new theme, which I want to release before the 10th birthday of the site. It's the old UI.X we used to run, but it's had a LOT of improvements I've got quite a bit of stuff to do on it, but wanted to show a sneak view of the current color scheme. If anyone has any suggestions...

    Update HTTPS URLs

    I've neglected the site quite a bit recently, so I'm going through and fixing a lot of issues. I'm in the process of correcting all the linked URLs within posts which still refer back to the HTTPS URLs. Clicking these can cause issues for members, because we don't have a HTTPS certificate...

    New House

    So, we've sold our house, and we moved out on the 13th November. Our new house hasn't completed yet, so we are currently living at the in-laws until we complete. Can't wait to be in, as it's a lot bigger than the old house
