  1. I have set up a free alternative forum here - http://jamerspad.freeforums.net Please all free free to register, it would help if you all keep you're existing usernames.
  2. Yes, read all about it.
  3. Absolutely fine with an alternative forum or group somewhere, no problems because I really want to keep in touch with all our friends here. I will have a look around and see if I can fine free hosting somewhere.
  4. At one time, but we are not getting the numbers at the moment. To be honest £250 per year would cover it all it is just difficult for me to keep justifying paying out, I also run two other sites, one is my daughters (singer) and the other is a local website more of a community website.
  5. Hi guys, Sadly, I cannot keep pumping money into the website any longer with the lack of contributors. I set up JamersPad back in 1997 so yes believe it or not we have been here for 22 years! I have met some fantastic friends along the way but it is time to hand it all over to someone with some fresh ideas. I am not looking for thousands but looking for a sensible offer which includes the domain, I will transfer the forum licence over and include a few themes that I bought along the way. I will keep our Facebook page alive so that we all have a place where we can meet. You can still find me on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram etc.. Just received another invoice for a further six months hosting and don't really want to pay again (£70)... Please feel free to drop me a PM or reply here if you are interested.
  6. Good luck with this mate, let us know how you get on

    Forum Upgraded

    Thank you, we ll we have been here since 1997, so 22 years not many sites can say that although I have just paid for another years hosting I am finding it more difficult to justify the constant updates and costs with the lack of use, maybe I need to start looking at new idea's. I am an avid watch enthusiast, also into Apple devices, Sonos so could look at setting up a few forums, not sure open to ideas.

    Forum Upgraded

    All the latest features can be found here, lots of new things much faster too.
  9. I have upgraded the forum today to the very latest version.
  10. Hopefully I will keep the site open but 2019 we need to get some activity here or I am just pissing in the wind so to speak by constantly paying. Maybe we could look at new topics for forums...On FB we do have Area 51 a members only group :)
  11. We are all still here although the site has really dropped off. I am still paying and we have been here for over 20 years but unless it picks up in the New Year I may end up closing it and just running our Facebook Page
  12. Glad to hear it! Follow us on Facebook too mate
  13. Well I have switched to Sky Q for my fibre (already using Q for my TV which is great) however, the Sky Q router wifi is very poor compared to the BT Hub. Still tinkering around and I have an engineer calling tomorrow, not sure what they think he can do that I can't but we will see. Connection at the router is fine but speeds drops MASSIVELY over wifi, which was not the case with BT.
  14. I have been with BT for years and years for my Broadband, I am aware that there have been cheaper options available but I have stuck with them. I have Infinity 2 ( they may have renamed this service now) I currently pay £47.98 per month Broadband - £24.99 Line Rental - £18.99 Free Eve and Weekend Calls - £4.00 My 18 month contract is due to end I believe March 2019. Earlier this year in February I received a letter explaining that there was going to be another small price increase and I had 30 days from the date of the letter in order to be able to leave my contract early because of the price increase, but I was away a lot on business and by time I had got around to calling BT as I had found a much better deal on Vodafone I was 1 day over and the girl more or less sniggered as she informed me. That really wound me up at the time. Guess what? Yes, BT have written to me yet again advising of another price increase in September, again I have received a letter explaining that I have 30 days in which I can leave my contract, so I called BT and the gentlemen who was based in India said that the best that they could offer me was to keep my price the same without the increase for 18 months. I then spoke with Sky, not only have they offered me exactly the same deal but for £30.00 (18 months) but they also reduced my TV package for Sky Q from £74 down to £53 but then gave another £5.00 discount because I was moving my fibre broadband to them, so TV is now £47.00 and Broadband is now £30.00, that is a saving of £830! I told Sky to go-ahead, BT have now contacted me because they have received a cancellation notice, I spoke to a gentlemen who said that he had spoken with his supervisor and could offer me the same Broadband package that I am already on for £1 yes £1 plus £18.99 line rental so a total of £19.99 per month, oh and then he added the £4 for the free evening and weekend calls giving a grand total of £23.99 per month (18 months) I told them to shove it! So BT through their own greed wanted to put my already expensive price of £48 per month up yet again which in turn has promoted me to look at alternatives and now because I am leaving they offer me a price that is less than half the price that I am paying now. I remember from when I had Sky Broadband a longtime ago that it was pretty good, so I hope that there service is still the same.
