Have I missed something?

Guys, I've been out of touch for a while so flame me for being a bit stoopid for falling behind!

I notice the forums look very different. Is that true or has something environmental taken place on my pc that I can't control? I notice the ads now with a request from Google to bin them for $25? I see a sort of Mafia thing here, paying for something I did'nt ask for.

What's the buzz?

The request is from me, not from Google. The forums have gotten to the point were a dedicated server is needed to run them. Dedicated servers don’t come cheap, and advertising on forums is poor. Too many repeat users who are here for info, not to buy stuff...

Hey Bokkie, where've you been? Yeah, lots of changes. Joe updated to a new version and as a result, we faster, better, stronger!

I've been on leave for a while. Wife and I took the bikes to an amazing forest area in north Wales called Coed-y-Brenin where the trails are simply the best in the UK. That's what I read and that's what I experienced having done three of the five trails and singletracks. The singletracks would impress you US and Canadian guys very much.

I lost my isp at home and I'm soon to connect to broadband so keeping in touch with the forums will be easier than trying to do it from work, and faster, better, stronger!
