Forum renamed

Hi all,

as you may have noticed, the forum now has a new name. It's no longer "the ricochet", but now "The Shattered Room".
The old URL still works, and will continue to do so, but clicking on any link brings you to the new domain right away.

URLs that will bring you here are:
  • shattered-room.net
  • the-shattered-room.net
  • arenaforum.net
  • arena-forum.net

and all of the above also with a "www." in front.

The change in name was brought up because I found out that there is a band with a similar name to the old forum name "Ricocher". To make sure that nobody will confuse "the ricochet" with that band, I dropped the name.
The King is dead, so worship me!

HOORAY...

Eventually, with Peter's and Moonloop's help, I've managed to get back here...

(Did I hear a boo...?  ;) :P)

If anybody else is having problems logging onto the newly-named forum, then, er, they won't be able to read this...

But the culprit was my bl**dy firewall, ZoneAlarmPro...I couldn't access this forum even via FireFox, let alone IE6...

So I turned off the firewall, logged-on, turned the firewall back on, and I'm still here...

(Was that another boo...?  :D)

If you lose me again, I'll be down the back-of-the-sofa, along with all of the other useful stuff...

...you know, the TV Remote, last month's TV Listings Magazine, handfulls of animal fur, a boiled-sweet or toffee, the cordless 'phone, last Saturday's Chinese Take-Away, Credit-Card Receipts, what the animal who previously owned the furry handfulls left after eating the Chinese Take-Away reminants, a smaller animal grooving-away with a Pict in a cave, the recipe for somebody's wife's Lemon Icecream, the automatic bottle-opener as used at last Christmas' Office Party...

...and some cash.

Oh, go on then...

"Playboy" has suddenly been renamed "Wedding Photo's" Album...

Damn this renaming malarkey....!

The link to the forum on the official Arena website isn't working anymore due to the forum rename. The link has to be changed. I couldn't find the e-mailadress of the webmaster. Peter, do you know? By the way, the website isn't updated often.

I noticed that the problem has been solved. Let's see if a lot of new members will find this forum now  ;).
