You are doing a great Job Martin -  I am not complaining.   :-))
By all means PM me your number as Mayhem is my Home Page so 'lights up' if poorly.

Since last outage seem to be having a problem staying logged in.
Instead of having back arrow to go back to previous page have to leave the page and log in again.???????

Thank you, tried the Home button but it took me back to the beginning.

The "back/forward" arrows would let you go back and forth to the previous screens when reading unread posts or topics etc.

Not sure if it is the site or my PC , but those two arrows no longer work.

Could be coincidental that it has happened after the recent dropout.

Previously, there have been no issues with ongoing problems after the forum has gone off line.

Try using another browser and see if you still have the problem.

Also be sure to clear your temporary file cache, I have mine set to clear on browser exit.

Yes, try a different browser. Firefox is my favourite.

Also, do Virus and Maleware scan ...... just in case.

Have completed Virus and malware scan, no items found. :-))

In interim, used my old XP PC machine to access the forum and all OK.

Indicates there is a problem with this PC, running WIN7Pro.

Will download another browser.

Thank you for the assistance.  O0 O0

What I have been fooled by is going to another page and getting a new tab and not noticing.  To revert to a previous page I have to reopen the original tab, the new one has no history, so it can't step back.

Don't ask me what is going on as I haven't a clue.

Too many coincidences.

This PC, running WIN7Pro is now working fine. Only change is, 11 updates have been downloaded and installed.
Maybe one of them was browser related or whatever?

Anyway all is now fine.

Thank you one and all. :-)) :-)) O0 O0

Big maintenance cycle tonight Chaps!

Forum will be off-line during the night (UK) so we can move 14 Gigglebytes of data around the server!
Downloading a full backup now and then doing another on-server backup just before Pickfords Heavy Haulage arrive!

Off-line about midnight -'til 6:00 .... or just before I fall asleep and whenever I wake up!   O0
