I know Jim did explain it wasn't enabled on the back up server but I'm not sure what server we are on. Are we still on back up or are we on the main server? Or is it me that's the problem as my phone is doing some odd things at the moment. #-o
We're on the backup server still. when Jim and I get the chance, he'll export the database for me and I'll import it on the new server I've built with the latest version of PHPBB and then images, smilies and tapatalk should then work.

Both Xac and I are exceedingly busy people and getting together to get this all sorted is proving quite a challenge :)

Please don’t hold your breath!

You bet :-D I hate all computers and everything related to them with a passion. The only good thing is they earn me a living...

..And allow me to keep in touch with friends and to visit forums like these...

Time has been very much at a premium recently for reasons I'll put in my blog in due course...

I'm having to plan and operate my life with ever more military precision than usual :twisted:

I feel exactly the same Jim. I often wish there was another way. I've managed to cut my usage down quite a lot though. I think I could manage with just a decent sized phablet now. I use it for nothing other than coming here to bug you lot, the dreaded Facebook and reading the news, autosport.com and watching highlights of various motor racing formulae.

Someone needs to invent a folding screen.... a phablet with a folding screen. I hate watching on a very small screen. Something small with a fold-out screen big screen would be utterly fantastic.

Now now Jim, don't exaggerate. Even the person I know who likes Vauxhalls spends his time detesting his.

Yes, and if I remember correctly you delayed my wedding by chatting with one such person :D (he hopes you're well by the way)

Jim and Xac I wasn't having a moan just not sure about the site status. What you both do for us all is above and beyond and very much appreciated.
