yup, we changed servers as supanet/pulse hosting refuesed to admot to it and never attempted to fix it!

i have to say they really made it hard to do and its very possible that www.fordpower.org.uk as a domain might well go but, we have other domains that points to this to.


www.fordpower.me.uk

www.fordpower.eu

ow youl like this one to he he he he


www.fordforce.co.uk

i run this on a shoe string but i have all the support i need with olaf in holland, along with some good mates as mods to!

ow the main site is  acualy     http://maddoldbugger.powweb.com/]http://maddoldbugger.powweb.com/

so as you can see,, we are on powweb and they are really good!!!

regards
tony

Would you not want further financial support?  I've just looked around the forum and can't see anything related,for all forums to be given the option to help.

Well you can always order a few extra t-shirts, to sponsor the site  
But you can donate a few quid to Tony if you want to

Not much profit in T shirts  
+ the is the extra work & time of sorting them out.

Maybe on the first Home page you should have details of how to donate & a brief description on the costs of a site like this.

Then you could also have a link at the top of the main forum.

Also a few selected sponsors could pay for it all.

That`s a good idea.
Just need to figure out how to get an extra link/banner on the top of the page.

One or two sponsors could pay for the hosting as Tony is paying for it out of his own pocket now..

Ok, did a little research and as you all can see, banners are possible...  
p.s. it`s not really easy to add them,but it`s working

Just a link to Tony`s site and Ford uk for now, but it`s just for testing purposes.
I`m sure there will be usefull banners soon tho.

Hmmm I don't know Paul if they only fill that box where them two tests are then I can live with that.

Could setup a Ford Power paypal account & people could pay into that with a link as I said before.

Well, since i have to add/edit each banner by hand, it`s just a matter of how many of them do we want/need here.
I think a max of 6 is doable,just depends on the size of the banner.

We could do with a link to a paypal account, but it would be wise go get a real sponsor.

The two that are here now are just for testing purposes.

Well, just let them stick it where the sun don`t shine...  

The site is working ok now(even if it took "some" work to change just about everything..)
There are enough domain names pointing towards FordPower, so it will keep running allright  

Now we need to find some sponsors to help pay for all the domains Tony has paid for  

p.s. Just take a nice stroopwafel(or did you run out of them again?)

Well the buggers really did try to kill us.

Loads of people can't find us anymore  

Seems to be taking for ever for the search engines to start directing to the new address to.

You can't keep good knowledge down, we will rise again
