    Cool. (Though COBOL is more my era.) I just have to work out how the same personalised version of the Google Authenticator algorithm gets onto both my phones and my macbook. I guess my Google account controls that.

    Can someone explain how a standalone app like Google Authenticator which doesnt need a signal can generate a code acceptable by the forum and identifiable to me? How does it know it's me holding the phone? Not rhetorical, I just dont know. I use a combination of Macbook with Airmail email client, five email accounts on Google mail and Outlook mail, and two android phones with Aquamail email client. Once started on the 2FA path the complexity (even for this retired IT person) and the danger of being locked out somewhere along the line are too great to contemplate at this time. All my mail accounts have single password entry since all the problems with the interim solution before 2FA. Even if I activated it for this forum, the guy I bought from has my home address data in his PM and I can't protect that from my end. He would need to 2FA too. Not sure how GDRP protects me either. I can't ask you to delete his PMs. I prefer to stay relatively anonymous and use false personal data in forum profiles where possible ie be street smart. I will now review how I communicate with sellers for next time.

    Im still struggling to see what data is at risk. Apart from my email address and a photo of Victor Meldrew. How would I access the forum from the local library PC on holiday?

    Absolutely. Dont get me wrong. Neil has done a great job keeping out spammers. I have bought stuff here with a high level of confidence. On the other hand I had originally resisted registering my data with an unknown site with content you cant see unless you register. That is until @DavidLevene in another forum assured me it was safe. Without that assurance this site could have been anything and I know people who wont register because it is unknown on the web and invisible to non members. Making it even more difficult and you will continue to have sub forums that have not been posted in for many years.

    Just saying. No other forum that I know of uses it. But then no other forum needs registration to view content like this one. Its already more tightly controlled than most.

    Just my 2 penn'orth, if 2FA is ever compulsory is when I stop visiting. Google follows me about enough as it is without controlling my access to anything.

    Fair enough. I didn’t notice anything change back in Feb but this layout is fine anyway.

    Forum Blocked

    Its not the only gun forum to be blocked by many providers. It gives the snowflakes something to do reporting them. Surrey Guns was also blocked just before they went bust. I just ask my provider to switch off the adult filter which is not so easy on PAYG.

    Like I said Steyr.

    Help

    Steyr if you want gold medals. Avoid any pistol where the retailer cant give you a source of servicing and spares. Avoid anything under £1000 although Hammerli AP20 is popular. However see para 2 above.

    Looks like the new layout from this end.
