Well folks, it's been quite a week. A week of leaking water pipes (still is!), writing short briefings for people, ranting on Twitter and setting up this place. Little did I think, earlier on, that I'd have to edit a forum style-sheet. The joy of it ...
Fortunately, ProBoards seems quite good, and I'm sorry that you'll probably end up looking at endless banner ads. Nothing is completely free, it seems.
If we get a few more members (I'm somewhat doubtful about that) I'll consider paying for a different package, and that way I can keep things running for a bit longer. I dislike advertising as much as you ... Probably more so.
It would be very helpful to have more than one moderator to help me out, so if you're up for a massive ego trip (I'm kidding!) and something to put on your list of useful skills, please let me know. It's actually very easy.
It is when you are using what you have learned from books that you wish you had read more.
John, if you want some of the old lot to find us here I suggest you make reference to this being a refuge for former members of THE IDLE FORUM so that a google search will come up with some of the posts here. There I just did that! Perhaps something in the header or meta content?
