    Over the next few nights the forum is going to be undergoing a server upgrade, so if things are slow, etc, that'll be the reason. Apparently we've got so popular that people have been unable to view the site if they aren't members, to restrict traffic a bit. Anyway, the server upgrade should take care of that, but whilst it's happening, there may be periods when the forum isn't accessible, and sometimes posts have gone a little odd, and been double posted, or attributed to the wrong person, etc. If anyone see's any of that, let El_B, BLS or myself know and we'll try and sort it out.

    I think at one point this forum was the only place with a link to it, and we were the top hit on google when you searched for it. Place went mental, definitely responsible for the most views on a thread.

    The server upgrade has been completed. If anyone notices any glitches with the forum please let us now so we can tell the admin.

    Cheers <ok>

    There's this annoying glitch called "El_Bando" that seems to be rather persistent <whistle>

    It needs shifting upwards a bit, the car is not really visible.

    Can we change our background image to something brighter and better to look at?
    All it looks like is mist with a faint apex visible.

    With the amount of effort it currently takes to get a change, we might be waiting a while. It's taken some boards months to even get a change from the default, so getting a different one could be an even greater effort.

    If people are looking for something else to fill their time with, we've got a Travel Thread on the NCFC board which is proving pretty popular. Feel free to add any opinions of places you've visited, we're more than happy to have visitors.

    That would be the NUFC board. But seeing as this is an F1 forum, I'll let you off :tongue:
