      Very swish Martin. Good work there, the wife is in IT so I know how much effort this has taken to do. Thankyou! We'll all be used to it in no time, change is no fun at my age but... Luckily (?) I'm off work with flu so can get used to it and enjoy!

      Have fun. I only had two 12 hour days at it before I got almost to where I wanted SotP I am sure you will have less hassle though since you actually know what you are doing.

      Until I did a google search for BB I thought the site had crashed or something as my links to it won't work! However, now I've found it, the new look looks very interesting. Good luck to all involved with the transition - I hope its not too stressful.

      Nice One Martyn,

      A lot easier on the Eyes. I do miss the old header a bit though. Was quite classy.

      Seems to be faster now too.

      Off to re-orientate myself

      Well. I'm shocked. No doubt the new back-end is smoother, more efficient and perhaps cheaper to run, but Geez! BB's former dark black UI was one of my favorites and as a Web pro, it's nice to land in a sexy UI. Please help me understand why I'm feeling this way, but I congratulate you if this is what you want and need.
      Thanks for the kind hosting BTW.

    Actual, real-life, knife shops?

Apparently he bought his knife (a Taylors Eye Witness) from a shop in Tenterden, the year before, so we resolved to take...
