  1. vBulletin4: Issues with older Web Browsers

    There have been a few queries since we upgraded the site to use the newest version of the forum software, vBulletin 4.

    These issues mainly revolve around how the board is styled - most notably with older browsers and Internet Explorer 8 Compatability View.

    Below are some screenshots to show you the differences.
    With older version of Firefox, Internet Explorer and IE8 Compatability View, the site can look like this:

  2. It's all gone back to front........

    Itís probably redundant to say that when sports news transfers from back page to front page, things are not good. Well, thereís been a bellyful of that kind of caper over the past month or so and it makes any sports fan question their commitment, and indeed, the reasons why sport is important to them.

  5. Todays News, Tomorrow's Chip Paper

    Firstly, an apology to younger readers. You may not know this, but in the old days - before PC "went mad" - you used to get your fish supper wrapped in an old newspaper.

    The odd case of a lead poisoning was a small price to pay. Given the choice of a chance to catch up on old news, combined with a nutricious and tasty meal meant it was a risk worth taking.
