  1. Email Addresses

    Can I please ask that if you set autoresponders on your email accounts when you are away that you change your Email Settings in "My Controls" so that all email notifications are *off* (such as PM notifications), so that I do not receive lots of emails from your responder. Many thanks, Neil
  2. Happy New Year

  6. Ftagh: Acorn Archimedes Computer

    I used to have one, and an A3000 and best of all the Acorn Risc PC - some machine I've got hundreds of 'Archive' and 'RISC' magazines which will help you to program etc on the Acorn Hope it goes to a good home.
  7. Site Downtime

    Apologies folks, but the datacentre had to perform an emergency swap out of vital routing components, hence the downtime. Thanks Neil
  8. Timezones

    If your clock is displaying an hour out, then click on "My Controls" and under "Options" (on the lhs) click on "Board Settings" and untick the Daylight Saving Option and save your changes.
  9. Multi-day Events In Calendar

    This is something I have thought about and will look into.
  10. Kneeling/standing Rifle Rest

    Obviously you are and it is a proper stand, just highlighting Ken's suggestion of a cheaper version for those who can't afford the real deal
  11. Kneeling/standing Rifle Rest

    Well get the proper thing then if they *want* to pay
  12. Kneeling/standing Rifle Rest

    Or heed Ken's advice and go for the cheap lights
  13. Scope Stand

    Terry, out of the two legs, it's the one that sits on top of the other where the nut is. Makes sense doesn't it
  14. Scope Stand

    LOL, now you are asking Terry. I'm away up to the club to do some training so I will have a look and let you know later on - thanks. Neil
  15. Server Upgrade

    I've now reverted the forum back to the usual http://forum.stirton.com as I believe everyone should now be looking at the new server...
  16. Server Upgrade

  17. Server Upgrade

    Less 'hops' to the datacentre (about half) from most UK ISPs combined with the faster server makes all the difference
  18. Server Upgrade

    The server move went ahead smoothly in no time but the update to the global DNS records will take 24 hours. At the moment if you go to http://forum.stirton.com you will be taken to the direct IP address - this is to try and prevent you posting on the old server and then losing posts when the DNS (global domain name server) records update. When I'm convinced the records are updated it will appear as http://forum.stirton.com again I also hope you notice the speed increase Faster server overall and less time to connect to it (almost half the time for me) than the old server. :D
  19. Site Downtime

    Last nights downtime was caused by some nasty people performing what is known as a DoS (Denial of Service) attack against the data centre where the servers are. This is basically an orchestrated attack where lots of computers are used to send massive amounts of "rubish' data towards the datacentre, thus remdering the centre pretty much useless and unable to serve our web pages Even worse is, it is very difficult to do anything to stop this from happening. Anyway, it's back in operation now and I can only apologise for the disruption. Regards, Neil
  20. As above, I have two M(ulti) P(rocessor) Athlons for sale if anyone is interested? Here they are on EBuyer: http://www.ebuyer.com/customer/prod...oduct_uid=43355 @ £239.39 for 2 of them delivered. I have 2 of them, still in their boxes and thought I would give fellow forum users the first chance to snap these up. Looking for offers around £180. (Or I might just have to use them myself and have a stupidly fast machine) If you are interested, then give me a shout. Thanks Neil
  21. Two Athlon Mp 2200+ Processors (retail)

    Don't worry Peter, if I do decide to keep them then it would likely be the Asus that I go for. I was hoping that they might come out with an improved bus speed, AGP, etc, version soon
  22. Two Athlon Mp 2200+ Processors (retail)

    Which m/b did you use then because I always swear by Asus but there is only one to choose from for dual proc. Athlons?
  23. Search Engines

    I see that thanks to the increasing number of members and links to the site, it is now ranked at/near the top of Google for "target shooting forum" and "shooting forum" - thanks people

  25. Sql Errors

    I am aware that there have been some SQL errors appearing recently and that at least one thread has been damaged as a result of it, as I had to repair the database. Please bare with me, as I believe there could be a problem with the current version of CPanel and MySQL. I apologise for any posts/threads that may have been lost. Regards, Neil
