    Scatt System

    I'll let you off Rob The biggest no no is companies registering on here solely to promote their products/services and nothing else. Helping others by suggesting a company is not too bad, however I still feel that the forum should not show favouritism for one particular supplier etc - monopolies act and all that

    Site Downtime

    Sorry for yesterday's downtime folks, there was a migration at the datacentre which should now provide faster hosting. Apologies for the lack of advanced warning

    Admin Away

    LOL, you're right. Since the forums are for members only, the news really has to be on 'publically' available area - hence it's taken from this category, which is not used as frequently Edit: Scrap that, ok the news is now pulled from 'General' just to keep you happy Sparks

    Any Use For Coaches?

    I was approached by a small business owner asking whether anyone would be interested in some of his products. As you know I do not advocate blatant selling on the forum, however I wondered if this product would be of use for the likes of Bisley. It is a 'waterproof' clipboard ... www.wetwritesolutions.com

    Time to do the opposite and tick the "Is daylight savings time in effect?" box again folks (unless you're in Malaysia that is )

    Can I ask all users to check that their timezone is correcti n order to reflect the true time you posted your message. At the moment, the United Kingdom is currently in British Summer Time (BST) which is the same as GMT +1. Many thanks Neil
  13. I'll be honest with you Mike, most of the shooters on board here are ISSF target shooters. There may be someone that can help with your request though

    Wanted Free Or Cheap To A Good Home

    .. and I still have my trusty old BSA. Great rifles, getting parts for it is the main problem. Maybe Mac, or some of the other central belt folk can help you?

    You're right Clive and it should be an 'information' message and not an error. I thought exactly the same when I first saw it. The authors have just used an error dialog for all messages shown to users - not ideal I know

    New Medium Risk Email Worm Virus

    I've had over 100 emails with it and it's a pain in the a$$ with the AV popping up all the time but at least it's catching it. Update you AV software as often as possible - weekly at a very minimum.

    New Medium Risk Email Worm Virus

    Karly, MyDoom uses more that just zip for attachments, it masquerades as txt, bat, scr and many others. It will install an SMTP (mail) server on your computer and then scan your machine - text files, html files, address books etc for any email addresses it can find and then fake some emails and spread the virus. The attachments are always between 32-34kb in size - it's a good idea to turn on the size column in Outlook then you can get an indication by the size of the email before even opening it

    Air Pistol

    LOL My sisters were told that they could get one from Sloan's (a shop just outside Aberdeen) for around £150. I will find out what kind it is. Cheers

    Air Pistol

    I'm looking for a lightweight pistol for my sisters. They are 7,9 & 11 and have just started triathalon, with air pistol shooting being one part of it. Bearing in mind their age and expertise something simple and lightweight (and cheap) is the main criteria. Anyone have/know of a suitable air pistol? Thanks
