As a result of the close-down of the UK by the British Government last night, we have made all the Buy/Sell areas read-only until we open back up again, so please have a look at the announcement linked here.

Hi folks, We're back in the land of the living, and I've sorted out the issue we were having at least for the time being, as I would have preferred a better solution, so I'll continue to look into it. The migration from one black box to another black box with less turbo lag and more storage space went quickly and was over just after I went to bed, so you early-risers or people on a different time zone have been waiting for yours truly to get up, which actually happened quite early today, although I think my brain had at least an extra hour in bed I've (we've - vicariously of course) received great support from our Hosts, and Invision have been helpful too, so a big thank you to them. A big thank you also to the team, and last but by no means least to anyone and everyone that has or still does make Britmodeller a great place to be both as a member and as an Admin. A slightly larger, gold-plated thanks to all of you that have contributed to the upkeep of the site too, and if you haven't or are feeling in a generous mood, please consider donating. The site just got a little bit more expensive to run, although the improvements in speed and storage are well-worth those extra pennies. Everything should be pretty much as you left it, although a few commands might be a bit slow initially, as the caches had to be cleared after we got here. I've done that about a squillion times while I was hitting all the bumps with a hammer, and our new gerbils have been given their crash-hats and racing overalls. Let the modelling gibberish continue!
Well - we have moved the forums to a new host, with a new powerful (dual Xeon processor with 8 cores) server and all the trimmings, round-the-clock support, RAID1 hard drives and a spare backup drive for safety. Hopefully, after all the DNS servers have updated, and the balance of the forum files (mostly Walkaround pictures now) have downloaded, we should be good to go. I will have to take the forum back down again at some point to point everything back to the .com domain name, but after that we should be good to go. Thanks for your patience and to all the team for their assistance in the move, in whatever shape or form it was rendered
