    Site Problem 3

    I'm still having problems too, by the looks of things and the complete lack of new posts other people are too. At present the forum is almost unusable. I've been trying to post this reply for three days.

    Hopefully. Things seem to be back to normal this morning.

    Site Problem 3

    Firefox is giving me least problems, Vivaldi is always problematic, though it is getting better. I won't use the Microsoft browsers unless I'm testing my own stuff this side of the firewall, on my own network. ;)

    My cache clears when the browser closes.

    Site Problem 3

    I'm still having problems with pages loading sometimes with the CSS doesn't load and others are just blank. I can see that there are replies, but they're not showing up without multiple page reloads.
  7. Go to first/next unread post is just bringing up a blank page. I also had to create a new thread because it won't let me reply on any others.

    Can you do this?? Mobile phone users a challenge!!

    If I ditched my mobile, nobody would even notice, I only use it to listen to cricket when I'm on the move.
  9. Somewhere around 1970 sounds about right to me.I can still smell Ogley's from here.

    Spital Hill in 1970

    Like a vintage version of Cash Convertors. They bought stuff from desperate people for peanuts and then sold them for roasted cashews.

    Scarborough - Sheffield's favourite seaside town?

    We camped in Burniston, about 4 miles out of Scarborough on the Whitby road, every summer from 1959 until 1975 (Except 1967 when we went to Mablethorpe to my Aunt & Uncle's caravan). Last time I went, about ten years ago, it seemed to be a shadow of it's former self, run down and dirty.

    Moorfoot in Sheffield City Centre

    Virgin appears to have opened at 137 The Moor in 1973! Where does the time go?

    Moorfoot in Sheffield City Centre

    When did Hudson's Music shop close? And Crane's music shop a bit further up on the corner? I remember them both in the early 80s.
