    If you can use someone who is not a software geek or code warrior, who isn't quite sure what's involved, I'm willing!

    I do most of my reading/posting on either an iPhone5 or a Nook now, so if you want to see how it performs on those I'm game.

    I have a really old laptop with a pretty much defunct operating system so I would be happy to test it on there. :)

    I could test it on my old computer and on my i-pad if you still need testers.

    I will test anything you need tested. And I am home ALL. DAY. LONG. every day of the week. It would be a welcome distraction from boredom. :)

    This is excellent. I see a large variety of testers who have posted already so it'll be good to get some varied feedback regarding it. I'm hoping to get some things installed to the server so I can run my initial tests and get everything checked and doing all my techy things. I don't anticipate the test to be without some constructive criticism so I look forward to hearing your thoughts and working with them. Once I have done my initial tests, I'll contact you all individually by PM and sort you out with access.

    Any questions, feel free to ask. I'll be popping in and out and will do my best to answer anything that crops up :)

    Like Reuven, I know nothing about code, software etc., but I'm certainly willing to help test if you need an "average" person.

    This is handy, having all the names of people to blame if there are issues with the new board. :EVILLE:

    It means you're the conductor on the Crap Choo-Choo so you get to wear the cool hat and pass out the snacks.

    Everything is proceeding nicely.

    For this test, I'm going to need your IP address to allow you all access. That way, only people authorised will be able to see the test site and will prevent unwanted access. It'll also mean however that if you have a dynamic IP, it may cause a problem. As a result, you'll need to give me your IP of your home network. So ensure that when you follow the steps below, you're connected to your home network.

    1) Go here: http://www.whatismyip.com/
    2) You'll be shown a number in the format: x.x.x.x
    3) Copy this and PM it to me. PM it to me, ​don't post it in this thread.

    Finally, those who have posted before this will be involved in our initial test run. I think this'll be a varied batch of testers. I will most likely invite others in to see as we progress however.

    Okay. Invite me for the second round. If I can find my IP on the dynamic IP browser; if not I'll try the other browser. I use a mostly googlecrap -free android mobile in no teknik.

    If I can make a suggestion, regarding the new forum interface, it would be good if the posts could be displayed in the middle of the screen, with some background at the sides. At the moment, posts go all across the width screen and this makes them difficult to read.

    And example of what I mean:
