Our details 

Bulletin Board

This is a repository of useful information relating to all our products. Help, quirks and answers to questions are all here. This is now on a secure SSL link.

A Simple Machines Forum hosted on a Raspberry Pi 2 running Raspian GNU Linux 7, Apache 2, MariaDB and PHP with 250GB storage. The Bulletin Board provides us with an area for help, comments and ideas.


Why a Raspberry Pi? Well, it plain reliable, rock solid stable, fast and fun. It also auto-boots in the case of a total power outage. The Raspberry Pi is not affected by either the Spectre or Meltdown bugs!

And to really impress, we have a 'live' fallback system running on a Raspberry Pi Zero W which is running SMF on Raspian, Apache 2, MariaDB and PHP on a different IP address.

No bad language, misuse or spamming allowed.

Guest access as standard but logins for the use of registered customers only - owing to a sustained attempt to flood it by up to 6000 scammers and time wasters per day, mainly from Russia and China.

Our largest number of simultaneous users so far - 231
