I have been unable to register on these forums for the last 2 weeks because I have been using Firefox 3.0.3 to submit the registration form. I have been getting the validation error 'Incorrect Verification Code' although I have always been entering the right characters. Now when I tried with IE it worked :) So something for the webmaster to look into may be.

Hi sz_146,

Thanks for the head up re: the verification issue with the forum software. I will fix.

As a general comment... I am very disappointed with this forum software and it's been a goal for a while now to move to a better solution. We're going to move the forums to a dedicated forums sub-domain (ie. forums.ext.net). Unfortunately the quality of ASP.NET based forum software is totally embarasing, so I think we're going to be switching platforms during that move as well.

You should get a small license with VBulletin, and scale it back. Oh and don't forget to transfer over the post counts, I've worked hard to look like a complainer ;)

Cheers,
Timothy
