Applied the .14 update (compatibility with php 7 \ security improvements), things seems fine, but anyone sees anything unusual or some problem, please report here.

Later we will go 'https', will get rid of the warning when entering member password.

Thanks

It would be ever goodera if the local internet was better. Takes ages to load a page [not here, no adds] but downloads come in at 6 meg per second.

Thanks for the feedback.

Big chunks of the programs (which 'runs' the forum and displays content) has been updated and modernized to function with newer web standards etc, and sign of success is that forum browsing \ use shows no change from earlier.

Wondering what the forum consists of?  100.000's lines of this kind of stuff :O)

 I found heaps of that when I bought my first 'puter and didn't have any idea, and my nephew said "just play with it- you can't break it " ....oh yeah?  *eek*
 Now my youngster is paid to write the stuff  *wink2*

all good! isn't it amazing that most of the internet runs of free code like this forum does - php, mysqli etc. most people think software is expensive, but selling your soul to a US tech giant is optional.

I'm no expert more an interested observer of things computing, but I think I'm correct in saying those lines of code contain meaningfully named procedures and such, which makes reading the code much easier, this was not always the case, Am I right in thinking this was down to the Sinclair team or did they just adopt it for the QL  I still have one lurking in a drawer some where, sadly it is it's display capability that lets it down these days, otherwise it is still a usable machine thanks to the efforts of a few enthusiasts spread around the world (much like here)

Ahhhh, break free (as much as possible) from Microslut, Crapple, Farcebook, Scroogle and other Orwellian monsters & ghosts who are controlling our life and soul :O)

And now the IOT, Internet of Things: the fridge, cameras, tv, cars (soon the teeth brush and rolls of toilet paper) etc etc churning, mining and sending personal data 24\24...

Getting out of topic (but as long it's not in tech boards... :O)

http://www.zdnet.com/article/uk-authorities-push-for-direct-access-to-internet-providers-systems-say-critics/

Sadly, due to the conditions in the world and how some individuals and groups uses information technology, total state control will be needed and implemented whatever opinion we may have.

Will give uk authorities free access + membership on the forum :O)

Done! Look here: http://odditymall.com/rollscout-notifies-you-when-youre-low-on-toilet-paper

Next step is sensing your stock-on-hand, automatically placing the order on Amazon and, if necessary, delivering a new roll by drone direct to the bathroom while you are sitting. (Remember, all your doors and locks will also be IoT.)
