    Thought I'd get in quick for maximum advertising exposure!

    So, Coach when are you going to take part in a Crunch Cup, or have you already played in one?

    My graphics card is on the blink, I can't play anything that needs 3d acceleration until I replace it.

    I think the plan might include porting over some of the old threads after the new forum was set up, but I'd have to go check the developer post to be sure.

    In either case, having lost most of 2 years of posts there wasn't much relevant left on there.

    Another kick in the teeth for the community there.

    I mean, they're using the same forum software. How difficult would it have been for them to back-up the database and port it across? Other (fan-run) forums manage it!

    I feel a little sorry for the mods, because they're going to get it in the neck for Focus' incompetence AND the fact they didn't get x, y or z thread copied across.

    Speaking as someone who used to work for GoDaddy.com and had to walk average, non-programmers, non-DB fluent people through doing this... it's not that hard at all for someone who is even moderately intelligent.
