1. The Forum Rules have undergone some minor changes and updates.  Please take the time to read them; it will only take a couple of minutes of your time. By doing so, you lessen the chance of incurring the wrath of the moderation team or making yourself look foolish to other members.

    90% of users posting adverts in the Sales forums need to be reminded to read the rules as their posts are wrong.  This is unnecessarily time-consuming and will no longer happen - if your advert doesn't follow the Sales Rules it will be deleted and you'll have to start all over again.

    To close this box once you've read it (and the Rules), click on the X in the top right-hand corner.

    Thank you.

  2. A reminder of one of the Forum Rules:

    'Behaviour

    Do not make inappropriate or offensive posts - including threats, harassment, swearing, prejudice, defamation, deliberate insults or name-calling, other negative remarks about this forum, its moderators and administrators or your fellow members. Even if this is just your own personal opinion, RESPECT YOUR FELLOW MEMBERS.'

    There have been changes made to our censoring software in an attempt to help with this growing problem.

  3. Dear members,

    Our membership (like our country) consists of people from all walks of life; different in far more ways than can be listed here and each with a different view based on their experience of life - regardless of their colour, religion or cultural heritage. Every single person in the UK has been born of mixed race – we are a multi-coloured and multi-cultural country.

    As many of you are aware there are a handful of individuals amongst this membership that persist in making provocative, inflammatory, racist and otherwise offensive comments. This has been happening across the forum to a certain degree but is most especially prevalent in the Adult section.

    The moderation team has tried to stay on top of this, however unfortunately because of the ‘offensive’ nature of much of its content we don’t monitor the Adult section quite as much as perhaps we should. As a result much of this behaviour has gone unnoticed unless it has been reported to us. While the team always intended to take a "light touch" approach to the Adult section it would seem that some people aren’t quite adult enough to be left unmonitored after all.

    This behaviour is, and always has been against Forum Rules as well as the specific stipulations of the Adults forum and it will no longer be tolerated. We feel it's time to draw a line in the sand and as such from this point onward offenders will receive an immediate and permanent ban from the forum.

    In order for us to achieve our goal of restoring the forum to the friendly and tolerant place it once was, we ask that ALL members be mindful of the content they post and help us to stop unacceptable behaviour by using the 'Report' tool at the bottom of any offending post - the results of which can be seen only by Admin/Moderators.

    You should all receive a copy of this message by PM.

    I used to think this "back in the day" lol, but after using XP from very early betas during 2000 right through to approx 2011, it was finaly time to move on to Win 7 where I have been since then. A very good Operating system and so glad I avoided the "Vista debacle". I have no interest in moving to Win 8 (Tried it on someones laptop recently) and didn't like it at all.

    I er, go back much further than this though. My first PC had DOS 6.0 on it and I bunged Win 3.1 over the top of it at a later date :D, magic! lol. Then on to Win 95 for a few years, then came Win 98 (This was good back then too).

    Come to think of it, my first "home computer" was a little Z80 coupled up to an old black and white portable TV not that far off 40 years ago :eek:. Now that does sound "Old Fartish" lol :D.

    Tell any "youngster" today I just bought a Z80 and they'll probably think it's one of the latest "Watch computers" or something :rolleyes:.

    Andy :)

    Haha, great reason to try save an old netbook!
    If the charging ports gone though if I were you I'd get all your important stuff copied over to an external hard drive just in case the thing packs up on you again and you lose everything.

    Wouldn't worry about losing files and such as the HDD from a netty/lappy can be whipped out and stuck in an enclosure readable from another comp pretty easily.

    It's more running the programs on the drive where the problems arise.

    But Andy, I've been XP since it came out (dabbled with Vista on a desktop for a bit) and swore by it. I'm 7 through and through now. Great bit of kit. I even run a stripped out version on my netbook, which with 1GB of RAM only takes up 12% at idle. With a 2GB stick of RAM, it's summat ridiculous like 7%. Not bad for a computer with such a small processor. Come to think of it, my 'phone is more than double the power...
