The old forum is now back online.

I'm afraid nobody is a member any more. That was the only way I could stop people posting there and new members attempting to register. It means that all the old messages are preserved for posterity.

Why am I not surprised that you had a problem getting  to it, Joyce!   :o
Maybe you tried before I made it public again.

It should be here now for all to see.

Ha!
I've just solved a little problem that was putting little black squares around images in messages.

It's great to see the new format up and running. Well done Martin.
I had a bit of trouble loging on and signing on at first but all is OK now.

 ::)  Oh, dear!!  I did it again didn't I Martin?  Spoke too soon about not being able to access the old Board!  So sorry!   I can get there now though!!    ;D ;D   It's lovely and wonderful to see it back in existence - I was feeling very sad if I couldn't read the old posts on lots of great topics...however, not to worry, you came through with flying colours again Martin.  Thanks a million. 
This new forum is slowly but surely gaining strength and I'm sure it will be as great a success as the old one, without your headaches.   I thought it was funny that each "smiley" was in a box!  Ha-ha!!

I love the new forum, thanks for all your hard work Martin.
I have been off line for a couple of weeks and it was a nice surprise to come back to. It's great that photos and links can be added in the posts!
