I hate to mention this but, what happens if you get hit by a bus tomorrow?

Thank you for this service! I would not have taken on a Herald restoration without knowing that this forum existed. I have also met two people from posting questions who have generously offered their expertise and helped me in countless ways. I consider them very good friends and this would not have been possible without your selfless dedication to this project. Again, thank you.

SkyeYou are a marvel. As we say here in Quebec, 'l'ache pas". Having said that being a 'one man show' has the benefits you point out but is also exposed to peril. I know you know this but getting back up help will go a long way to maintaining & realizing this group of sites you offer. I for one support you, and will continue to as long as the 'nay sayers' behave themselves.Thanks & and I wish you healthy times ahead.B

Thanks Skye, I use this website often because it provides such an incredible amount of information about MGB's. I am still learning even though I have owned and maintained MGB's since 1967. Along with the Hayne's manual and Astley's electrical book, this is the best source on MGB's available.

Thanks Skye for all you do for the MG community (and others I hear). I use this website more than just about any other so after some gentle reminders from other members thought it was high time to become a supporting member. Robert

Only an occasional visitor to the site, but it is like no other for our MG world. If support Wikipedia and Mozilla, I can support MGExp too. Count me in and thanks for the hard work.
2017-01-06 15:30:55 # 39547
Skye I got a new iPhone and can't seem to find the MGExp app on the Apple app store anymore? I have it on my iPad but can't load it on my new phone. Is that still available?

Comment by Skye Nott
Thanks for the support, everyone! George: There never has been an MGExp app, but if you load in Mobile Safari on your phone and tap the share button (arrow out of a square) you can "Add to Home Screen" which mimics the behaviour of having a dedicated app on your phone by providing quick access.

Am concerned about the dozens of lines of Chinese style writing that preceeded this email posting. Seem to be from universities all over the world. Could this be a problem or is it something to do with the above mentioned changes?Thanks,David

Comment by Skye Nott
It's just a single spammer from China, I'm deleting it all now. Nothing to worry about, just annoying.

Comment by Paul J
Skye, Since the upgrade, every time I try to click on a link in the forums, the pre info writing when putting the courser over the "last post" blocks the link instead of putting it under or over the link and won't allow me to click on it as the information is blocking it. Any setting to rectify this? Paul

Comment by Skye Nott
Thanks for letting me know about the bug Paul, I'll try to fix that today. Bug reports can be sent to me directly by using the "Email the webmaster" link at the bottom of any page.

Skye, Since the changes, I have not been able to use my history marker(IMAC) to return to the last page I was on. Is this a bug or how do I now return to specific pages?

Bang up job Skye. I am just getting back to the Triumph Experience after a couple of years being absent working on multiple 'life projects'.I do not recall you mentioning the details of any vehicles that further your interest in this hobb, errr, addiction.Thanks again
