New Forums Now Open!

Tuesday November 5th, 2002

We've got a new set of forums for you folks to use! The new forum software we are using is phpBB and we hope you like it. We've taken the opportunity to create some new forums, so check out the forums index and get posting. You'll need to register before you can post but you should find the new system much more flexible than the old Phorum-based one — you can even start your own polls if you think ours are lame! Finally, you can still view our old Talkback Forums but please don't try to post new articles there.

If you're going to mail passwords in the clear, at least have the decency to tell users up front about it..... (and yes, I know none of these pages are using SSL. We're talking protection from over-the-shoulder-snoopers here, not from someone actually trying to get the password).
