Re: Forum Announcement

I'm OK on Safari too. Would the "slow" ones mind letting me know if its consistently slow - or just yesterday please?

I now don't have any pics missing in the gallery (Safari 9) - has anyone got anything contrariwise to report?

I've also been told that they have made some changes that should improve page...

Re: Bob's card trick

Hi

I know that the forum has been "moved" to a new server (although I don't know why - rusty nuts and bolts?). The gallery is behaving strangely for me (Safari 9). and I'd be glad to hear of...

Re: Historical WAD Schematic Diagrams

Hi All
