    today.

    as a result, BC will read your minds and automatically bans anybody who is trying to do anything mischievous.

    the upgrade done was upgrading the memory from 2GB to 4GB. we were constantly running out and the machine thrashing a lot. now it is much smoother, and hopefully will live through the anticipated extreme traffic when LD meets LCW on Sat.

    the upgrade is gonna cost me US$25/month. that's one fine tube of AS50, every month. :crying: :crying:

    Asking LD and/or LCW to donate to BC US$25/month

    .
    Perhaps we should ask LD and/or LCW to donate to BC US$25/month.

    Try asking LD first, when you meet him next week. :):):)

    ..noticed a few other changes :cool::
    - The forum's posting area has gone back to look like the previous version.
    - The reply texts' sizes seems a bit bigger than before; or maybe the fonts style was changed.
