You can have your account back now, email coming your way.
I know why! I could not access board preferences and now I can. I was posting when the system bit the dust on 12 August.

Thanks, I will see what happens now.

Pierre, You may be disappointed to find the board only supports "British English" at this point, maybe they didn't have a language file for New Zealand... :-)

We don't speak that NZ language - Aussie for us. Ask a NZ person to pronounce S E X and listen. :lol:

S E X sounds like S I X as does a lot of words in the same vein. Special comes out as Spicial.

It's mysterious to most Americans how you can tell each others' accents apart. Anyone who doesn't say "r's" like us all sounds English to us. In fact, before my son got speech therapy to learn to pronounce "r's," people would say, "How cute! He speaks with an English accent!" (And yes, we send them to speech therapy for that.)

Yes, I am getting the notifications sent to my other email address. Just wondering why they will not go to my primary address. Only thing I could find in MW was that forums at firetrust dot com was NOT in my friends list nor blacklist. I have entered it into friends list and will do a changeover again. It is a B mystery to me. I will let you know in this forum any results bad or otherwise. :?

Fush n Chups is another...in fact now that I think about it, the 4 months I spent in Australia with friends I was constantly getting the piss taken out of me for something I said. I hope that's a global expression....otherwise folk will be wondering what the hell it is Australians do to their friends ;)


But back on topic, the Queens English is the only true and proper English, therefore the only English available. God Defend the Queen and the MotherLand.


....or it may be I just don't know how to add other Language packs yet....I suspect I need the BOFH for that....

If you spend 4 months in Bondi you were still in NZ. But just to let you know that I am now receiving emails again on my primary email ID. Don't know if MW was to blame but who cares.

If anyone wants to use US English just install ieSpell in I/E7 and it will pick up that Queen's English.

We changed IP address when the old server died, and I forgot to get the PTR record set up for the new one. This is used by some mail servers as a belt and braces check - first off, check that host.example.com resolves to 1.2.3.4, then that 1.2.3.4 resolves to host.example.com. We manage the former, but our service provider manages the latter. I expect that this was the root cause of the problem...
