Major forum software update done
« on: 13.02. 2021 22:03 »
Forum and hosting software has been subjected to some major 'code modernization', should make it possible to keep everything running for another good chunk of time, keeping up with changes of internet tech.

Amazingly, resulted in one (known) bug only: entering a new (or modifying previous) birthdate in profile won't stick. Will be fixed someday.

If anyone spots anything, please post here.
Thanks

Thank you from us mere mortals!
1961 A10SR, spent a fortune at SRM
1961 A7SS, finally the right green
2011 New addition 1937 Empire Star, twin port, high pipes. Turned out to be the most unreliable bike I have handled.
2017 finally found the liner/barrel were flexing and causing all the overheating/nipping up. Early B33 barrel fitted and it's reliable at last!

Strange, nothing has been stuck in outgoing mail. Related to which post\member, may find an explanation. btw, you've got notif set for over 4500 topics, maybe time to clean the attic :O)

^^^ Browsers usually got the reader built in and working, I see that Safari don't, no need to go ahead and install anything unless you want to try, or need, rss. Thanks for posting. For the forum, it seems the latest update broke the rss in some browsers. A bug, will be fixed. But I think not many use the feature here anyway.

For those who wonder, RSS is a feature available on many websites and forums, delivers specific content, interests, news, articles in a simplified\concentrated view. Can be very useful\practical, to test it, try some news feed:
