About the Ads on the forum, I want to say the kind of ads you have are not useful to us because we build our own cells.

consider some useful adds for people like us... for example

Ads for Books on Electronics and Physics and Chemistry
Ads for Electronic Test Equipment (scopes, multimeter, frequency generators, power supplies)
Ads for electronic parts and components
Ads for materials like SS and delrin and acrylic
Ads for copper wire maybe

If you had Ads like that, I would be checking them out all the time, because that is what I spend my money on. Ask google to set you up with those, and I am sure you will have a lot more members using them. Maybe some other members have some ideas for Ads they would click on.

The forumsoftware is updated, this weekend.
I also added more security to block out spiders and some less interresting searchengines.
The forumserver was overfludded by those.
The performance is improved and looks like its back as it used to be.

Hi members,

You can add your youtube channel into your forum profile.
As you can see in my profile, you notice a youtube icon.
If you click on it, readers will see my videos on youtube.
You can do this as well....That way, readers can find your videos much easier!

@Steve:
 
I have noticed a big difference in the performance (speed).  Whatever you did, it more than doubled page loading time for me.
 
Nice improvement,

Nice job on the forum Steve. Strange thing though, I can only access it with firefox. IE and AOL browsers won`t work. But come to think of it why would I want to use AOL !
