Return of www.retrosoftware.co.uk

Postby Gar2293 » Tue Dec 08, 2015 5:48 pm

Hi

( despite running the STH / ABUG / associated sites for 10+ years - I can not access the announcements forum so )

After many a recent request, and a little work ( thanks Daniel A ), the return of the www.retrosoftware.co.uk website with the previous data intact, the mediawiki had to be updated to the latest version which has resulted in a slightly different look and feel, but it is all there.

Any questions / issues - contact me

Forums seem not to be working yet, will they be at some point?

Cheers.

Phill.

That's great news! I've been missing the BeebAsm documentation. Thanks to all involved in getting it back up and running.

I'm guessing that I should change my RS forum password. However, I can't currently log in there, or the RS Wiki. :(

Hi

I can confirm that forum on retrosoftware is working and users can login.

If you are unable to access your login, you could try the password reset function, enter your forum username and email address and a new passoword will be issued.

Ok, so I'm only five months late :oops: - but I've finally moved this topic to Announcements!

Thanks again Gary (+Dan.tv!) for kicking Retro Software back into life after it went down last year!
