    Shows a Weightlifter in a Blue Pinafore operating a manual drill press, I don't say this lightly, as I generally despise TXT Speak, but LOL :-)

    No, I don't like it. ;-)
    I also don't like the pointless home page, with no content except the invitation to click the only available link, it smacks of half-arsed slipshod web development :-(
    It's not dificult to automatically redirect, excep it seems is for the developer here, I've done better whilst asleep! :-]

    Thought it was just my machine playing about but clearly not. A better idea would be a picture of a cnc related image as a brief splash screen, followed by a re-direct to the forum. Or just leave it as it was . . .

    Or an offline develpment copy of the site for testing and general buggering about with prior to copying to the live site, but hey, that might smack too much of professionalism ;-)

    Noticed this last week. Pain in the arse and completely pointless as Nick says. I just reset my favourite link again to the forum home page.

    I recall many months ago ago a conversation with Lee where he said it would link to several sites, in which case the recently added page would make sense. Until then though I agree it's completely pointless and just wastes everyone's time.

    It's never bothered me because I never land on that page, my link always takes me directly to this forum

    It's mildly annoying for me as I often log on to the site using university computers, so now I have to append "/forum" to the URL to get to the right page. But I can cope ;)

    I'm glad I'm not alone in my criticism of how the site is run :)
