I'm not disguising, It's just that even though I've used "scottmedia" since 1997 and was one of the first 5 members of the old FSOLLIST, it's time to separate my professional name from my personal name. I think Ross knew my real name as well.

A couple of minor tweaks:

1. The avatars are now under the username, for some reason it always bugged me having it the other way round

2. I've stolen and tweaked a batch of avatars from IP Board, probably a complete copyright infringement but they looked a lot better that the phpBB ones. They look a little wonky in the selection window due to the difference in resolution but when you post the message they'll come out fine....

Or did I imagined that...?

Yeah apologies guys, this time not a financial issue but the web domain company playing silly buggers on and off over the last 3 days. It should be back for good now after a rather strongly worded email sent their way threatening all kinds of things [that we wouldn't do because they'd be too much hassle if we actually went through with them :D ]. If it does go down again in the next few days don't worry it really won't be permanent.

Sorry again, not very professional I know - I hope you guys don't get too put off by these extended down-times ....

Last night I updated the entire code base to a newer build of the forum software. If I've done it right you shouldn't really notice many (any ?) differences but it should be a little speedier.

The only difference (other than it being definitely a bit faster) is you don't see a preview of the title of the latest topic next to each forum on the main page anymore (does that make any sense?). The speed improvement far outweighs that very minor drawback. Nice one Pete.
