Board update  
Ok so I am going to sort out the VB5 upgrade and pay for that upfront so that Richard can get a copy and begin process (will go to 3.8.8 first). Perhaps people can put what they can into the paypal account over the next day or two and I will get it from there.
Richard is going to start by backing up the forum at Dreamhost so people need to be aware that the saved version Board will be a frozen snap shot - ie any pics, posts, videos posted after that is done might be lost if we need to return to that version. Tonny perhaps you can make an announcement to that effect asap and also direct people to this Forum for news.
I can't promise that the site won't be off line some times, but will keep you posted as best I can. I am away this weekend but will give Richard your email Tonny.
There is of course a possibility that we will upgrade and things won't be as they are, or the migration at Dreamhost wil be difficult- so not out of the woods but I know it won't be for the want of trying

I've just sent 40 Euros to the paypal account :)

Thanks for everything you're doing, Michele and Richard, it's soooo much appreciated!

Thanks all- back up has started- having a bit of difficulty downloading V5 at present but hopefully will be sorted out soon.

Ok - can someone give me the PayPal e-mail address for OL so I can chip in?

Just click the "donate" button at the end of the main page dear.... :)

Just hit the "Donate" Button at the lower end of each OL page.

I did it by looking up my old transfers to OL at PayPal, gathered the email and transfered a new sum to that email.

I do know about the 'donate' button but I have been having problems with getting OL to load for me. Will try again. Good suggestion about checking past transfers, thanks Naz!

It is very very slow at OL!

Managed to get on long enough to donate but it was hard going! Hope you can get it all sorted as painlessly as possible.XXX
