    Some time before Christmas the forum software is going to be upgraded

    This version is no longer supported and has some nasty security flaws which a determined hacker could make use of to blag all YOUR data..
    Not sure when it will be done yet, it depends on
    ( a) when i have the where with all and b) when the chap who does our upgrades can allocate the time
