Possible forum downtime


I'm going to be doing some major revamping of the forum over the next few days - I won some smashing new forum software (XenForo) in a writing competition, and basically the version we're running now is ancient, so it's upgrade time.

In order to get this working, our webhost is going to be doing some work which may well involve some downtime, and then it'll be up to me to get things working again, so there may be some extra downtime then.

So, if you pop in and it's down, or broken, please be patient. Thanks!
