        I have a friend in the UK trying to register. He has tried 6 times now with the verification code. I remember having the same problem, it is very vague and difficult to read. When I pick up picture messages from the o2 website that also has a verification code but is easy to read. Can we not make it a bit simpler admin? How many more have given up??

            Hey
            I very nearly gave up g & 9, u & v too alike. I started to think I was trying to register with the M.O.D or something.
            But you have to remember to also not use the first two and last two figures/numbers, which isn’t usually the norm when entering these codes. I forgot again when I tried to update my status and change my password. They are a bit complicated compared to other forums/websites which hold more sensitive information.
            Just a thought.
            Kind regards
            Ricky

                        OK I laughed, still trying to work out the significance of your Locator, or maybe just random chosen!

                        I have to say I still have a lot of time for them, both as a LOW Cost Airline: if you dont take luggage then it is not included in the price & flying to destinations that many do not: sorry for at least one route they have dropped. Saying that would prefer not to fly more than 2hrs on one of their flights, the seating is rather cramped and the food has no satisfaction. Excuse me going off subject

                            Hey
                            Thinking about this I don’t really think it has anything to do with admin, I think it is which company and the server also that the forum is powered from/by. Obviously to suddenly decide to change the forum provider and switch would not only be time consuming..i.e. lots of downtime during a switch, a whole new interface to deal with, all previous posts would more than likely be lost along with passwords, buddy lists all gone into the ‘ethernet’ to coin a phrase. So better the devil you know (which admittedly can be a pain) or a major upheaval (bigger, much bigger pain) ?
                            And please don’t just laugh at this, as a long standing internet security advisor I do know what I’m talking about. By the way my PC could eat yours for breakfast lol.
                            Just a thought
                            Kindest regards

                            ps
                            On the subject of airlines am I the only person who doesn’t eat inflight meals I would rather buy a 99p ready meal from Jack Fultons (which is pretty much what you get on a flight for £6) and eat before you fly and so if the seats are cramped so what rather be on a plane than stood up on a train !!!!!!

                                You are probably right Ricky. Your pc might eat mine for breakfast, but my Uncle is bigger than your Uncle. I never touch in flight meals! I have seen the process they go through!! If I can’t do without for a few hours there is something wrong.
