Pipex & Forum Upgrade

We'd like to publicly express our gratitude to PIPEX who have donated ADSLguide our second Dell PowerEdge 1550 server to enable our forums to cope with the increasing user base. Pipex, the first to push consumer ADSL to a new level with affordable prices is certainly no stranger to a fast-growing user base.

David Rickards MD PIPEX commented " The influential ADSLguide offers both existing and new broadband ADSL users in the UK an invaluable wealth of information including general FAQ's, trouble shooting guides and impartial information on each broadband service provider. As broadband continues to explode, its popular forum message boards enable end users to easily interact with each other and so improve their overall broadband experience."

Many of the 100,000+ users who visited our site last month are still not taking full advantage of the messageboards which can be a quick and easy way to getting your questions answered (as opposed to e-mailing us).

We will be using this opportunity to convert the forums from perl to php. This process has been delayed by delivery problems but we will now begin the process of modifying the base code to support our system in addition to writing in load-balancing support so that we can keep expanding. Further details on the change-over will be announced nearer the time.

In the meantime, please bear with us whilst we are working on this upgrade.
Thank you Pipex! [seb]
