No, no... Azz has back up, and back ups for the back ups. Everything will go just fine.

Fingers crossed:

- My computer doesn't crash!
- We don't have a long power cut!
- There's no bugs in the code or database!

So far, so good .....

Keep your fingers crossed everything goes ok
Tell me about it Azz....
My software is no longer compatible with Mrs Fox's because I'm so old....

In fact, 'Software' is a perfect description....

You will be able to set 'remember me' - like you can here Mups

The forums will be similar to here too, most will be viewable by guests but there will also be a members only section, etc
