Post New Server
Hello everyone :chew:

I've moved the site and board over to a newer, faster, cheaper server.

I got a bit sick of paying 2008 'VPS' prices, so everything's now on a $5/month Digital Ocean droplet.

There will almost certainly be some problems with the board - I had to re-write one or two bits of the bbcode parsing to make posts and replies work at all :?

Sadly, upgrading the board version would mean rebuilding the theme from scratch or getting stuck with the horrible default; I'll see if I can find something inoffensive that I can adapt easily, but it'll be a while before I have the time to do that.

Let me know if you spot any super-horrible issues and I'll try my best to fix them.

The board’s editor is broken! :(

I can only post links and pics as text:

Can't make them clicky. :(

Nothing we can do until Tom pops back in and looks into it.
