    The nostalgia of that method of mounting a window in a case is very strong:D

    On behalf of the software development team, I must apologise for the downtime tomorrow, while we migrate to the new forum software and resolve all its dependancies with the new website.

    I hope you all enjoy both the aesthetic and functional changes, but please remember that the main reason for these changes is for us the developers and the company's graphic designers to be able to realise as many features and options as possible that will make your engagement with the authors' content more informative and enjoyable. This was impossible with the old software and we all want bit-tech to be an evolving project driven by its readers' engagement with its authors.

    There will always be features that some will like, but others won't. What we want to achieve is to offer something to everyone that they will get excited about and this transition is only the beginning of this new, and I hope exciting to all of you, phase of bit-tech.

    We're a PC/Gaming/Modding community and I hope the site will be updated to reflect our natural preferences - RGB LIGHTING EVERYWHERE!1!

    Considering that the underlying software for Bit hasn't been changed in a while, and the account DB has been pinched at least once; it's probably a good idea to upgrade, plus it might get us a quicker & Slicker interface.

    I'm not against trying it, just so long as we get a nice range of shiny skins for the UI to work with to cater to different tastes, like we've currently got Light & Dark themes on the existing software.

    There will be 8 pops and skimlinks minimum per page. Also full screen ads that are impossible to close. ;)

    Must've been a hell of a migration job; there was a lot of content to move across from vBulletin, no wonder it took a week.
