Aware of the problem. Will get back to you.

In the meantime use the drop down Style selector at the foot of the page on the new board and choose the default template.

Help! I keep getting a round-robin of pages to log in, change passwords, etc. One leads to another and then back to the start -- but I can't get logged in. Whatsup?

Please use the new board from now on.

If you have been using a current thread on this board and you want it moved right away then please send me a request and I'll do my best.

Alternatively create a new thread on the new board and we will merge them together at a later date.

This thread will remain open for now in case you have any problems.

Don't worry, these pages will always be available as an archive, but everything (all the posts) are being moved so they will also be on the new board.

According to the What's Going On? section at the bottom of the forum main page, at the time of writing there are "currently 5228 users online. 71 members and 5157 guests." Now that's what I call a real party! But is it legal to have so many people in such a confined space?

Oh dear. The grouse is holding out but we've run out of champers and some of the guests are beginning to turn ugly. Phil's called the police - wise move in the circumstances.

Bob: Order is restored. What we'd run out of was cold Champagne.

Some obliging chap just miraculously found ice simply by reaching out a porthole, so we're good. And, of course, the band plays on.

Well, just be sure to keep the beer warm. Britain has contributed much to civilised life on this planet - like football, the Beatles, Aston Martin and the BBC. We don't always get it right - Simon Cowell for instance. And Freddie and the Dreamers. But our greatest contribution has been warm beer. If God had meant beer to be chilled He would have made us all Americans.

Bob: I thought you lot broke down and bought yourselves huge American-style fridges some time ago. I could understand warm beer with yesteryear's British fridges, but now you have no excuse. Chill, I say! Chill! Chill! ;)

I'll gladly buy the round and leave everyone to their preference, if only I don't have to drink warm beer. That happened to me only once, many years ago, and I still cannot shake off the queasy-making feeling that someone had drunk it before. ;)
