First topic message reminder :

Hi all, 

Following feedback from a number of users, the forum has undergone some massive changes today - there are so many tweaks and touches that it would be hard to name them all. The immediate advantages should be obvious straight away though!

Completely responsive design & mobile access now has full features - this basically means that no matter the device (pc, mobile, tablet etc) you are viewing the forum from, the forum should look clear and fully functional! No more basic mobile version of the site or pinching to zoom in!

Cleaner design - the forum should now look a lot cleaner and less cluttered, the info bar that used to run down the side of the site is now 'hidden' by a + symbol in the top right corner. To view the bar, just click on the +

 Quality of life changes - There are loads of little quality of life changes that should make the forum a bit more enjoyable to use. Here are a view examples: 


  • Being able to start a new topic, as well as reply, from within a topic. 
  • An 'online/offline' bar within each post so you know instantly who is currently viewing the forum.
  • At the bottom of the forum is the 'Dark mode' that you can switch on to reduce glare and eye strain if you are viewing in bed or in a dark room
  • Select your own theme - we can all chose our own themes colours if you so chose. 
  • The reply box has more options and has a modern look. 



The new look is a work in progress, the colours etc can and probably will be changed (not sure about the grey, thoughts?), but I hope you can appreciate that this should lead to more enjoyable experience for all users

I couldn't adjust to driving in France at all TDA, despite the roads down south being so clear free of other traffic. My brain just couldn't comprehend left-hand drive at all, not sure how you manage it - maybe the wine helps?

Yes, I have got better things to do today .... taking the car for a French MOT which is always an experience!

I'm sure that you will all be thrilled to know that the car passed the MOT and will be barely safe to drive for the next two years   woohoo

Ah the joys of owning a Rolls Royce eh

Rolls Royce be b*ggered. A 20-year old Scooby-do is all this old f*rt can afford. Much better things to spend the pension on. wine

I've given up on the Random theme as it's bringing on a migraine

Yes, maybe you should randomise your booze and meds instead?

I've tried to alternate them, but the only way I know where I am (so to speak) is to take everything together wine
