  1. We have updated the forum software today to the most recent version from the old version it was using. Unfortunately this broke the old theme.
  2. Have you tried deleting your cookies and emptying your cache? Could you also try in a different browser if you have one available?
  3. We believe we have tracked down the problem to a configuration issue with our load balancer for the site. We've made some updates to it this morning (although completely broke it in the process - so apologies for that!) and now hope that this should fix the issues people were getting. If anyone still has any problems - please e-mail noc at fubra dot net.

  5. Seems to be running really well now. This may be the biggest test of the servers since we started hosting HPC - with the Dow collapsing 9% at one point, and the UK election results in full swing!
  6. That's not too far from the truth We've increased the number of PHP nodes in the server cluster that hosts HPC from 4 to 7 over the course of today, so hopefully we should be able to keep up with demand!
  7. The corrupt posts are a hangover from a hardware problem we experienced yesterday evening. We're still in the process of fixing it but a few posts may have been lost. You can follow our progress on here: http://twitter.com/fubranoc/
  8. Hi All, We have had a major hardware failure at our data centre where we host HousePriceCrash.co.uk and other sites. The central backplane on our Coraid SR2421 RAID array has failed, such that is is only partially working. We are in the process of moving all sites off of this device on to other devices. You can read updates on here: http://twitter.com/fubranoc/ Apologies for the inconvenience. Regards, Paul
  9. Hi Guys, Today we've simultaneously upgraded the site to the new version 3 of the IPB forum software, and also moved the hosting to a new server cluster. Unfortunately the old skins were not compatible with the newer forum software, so we had to create new ones. Whilst the header and footer have remained pretty much the same, the inner skeleton of the forum has changed with IPB 3. Although we can't completely revert to the old version of IPB, we will try to improve this new layout where possible. Let's keep track of both server issues, and general style issues in this thread. Here's some is
  10. If he's going to take our money anyway, let's have some fun giving it to him! http://www.bailoutbrown.com/
  11. Hehe - no time for holidays - we're worked to the bone here... Brendan had the guys work through the night after our Xmas party when we won the ebay auction for http://www.sockandawe.com Merry Christmas to all HPCers!
  12. You can change it to full screen by pressing the little icon above the boss link in the top right. It should then store your preference in a cookie for any future visits.
  13. We put the new design up yesterday, and although there are still a few teething issues, we think it's pretty much working now. Please let us know your thoughts on the poll above, and also if you have any specific problems or suggestions, tell about them here: http://www.housepricecrash.co.uk/forum/ind...showtopic=98882
  14. The width issue should be fixed now, so that there are no horizontal scroll bars if you have a 1024 wide view port.
  15. This is a strange one... it appears to a bug with firefox. I think it works OK with Safari and IE. It may have been introduced via a recent firefox update... There is a fix for it here: http://kb.mozillazine.org/Scroll_position_..._not_remembered
  16. Could you upload a screenshot so we can see what you mean? The font now looks the same to me on my computer...
  17. Could you try pressing CTRL + F5 or CTRL + R (force refresh) and see if that makes any difference? It might be that you have cached an old style sheet. The title bar should be blue.
  18. IE6 should be working now. Can anyone who was having trouble test it out and let us know if you still have any problems?
  19. We're going to update the "stretch" preference cookie to last 100 years.
  20. You'll be pleased to know - Source Name and Title is back on the blog - it should have never gone away!
  21. We're going to adjust the site width to allow for the vertical scroll bar on 1024 wide displays. This should remove the horizontal scroll bar on 1024 wide browsers and above.
  22. Jason, can you post a screenshot of what you mean. I see the title to the left of ratings and options... it's white on a blue background for me? Paul
  23. Hi Guys, The font size has just been increased. We are working are way through the other issues, please keep the comments coming, they are really helpful. You may think we're mad, but sometimes we feel it's best to put stuff live when it's 99% complete as it gives us a sense of urgency, and generates much needed feedback. Paul
  24. I've lent out £1000 on Zopa in the last month after seeing the interest on my savings cut to 2.75%. Since it's so early, I can't say much about how well it has performed, but I have certainly been impressed with the system they have set up. Here are some things I can say about it: - Of the £1000, no more than £20 has been lent to a single borrower. So I have 50 borrowers in total. - The rates I've charged range from 7.8% to A* borrowers, up to 11.31% for Y (young) borrowers. - After fees and predicted bad debts, the expected returns average about 6.8% - 7% - It took about a week to le
