Probably not best to advertise and I'd advise bandwidth throttling, if too many people do this at the same time there is a risk they will close it early spoiling it for us all

I sucked down the MI6 site last christmas to solve one of their Christmas quiz questions. The forum isn't that big size wise just a lot of small files. I doubt anyone at haynes is reading this forum.

Ok I have the site. it's working like a kind of archive without the forum software. I'll update the backup up until the day of closure. If it they don't leave an archive up I'll sick it up on a one of my other domains so it can be accessed in read only mode. Maybe locost could host the archive. Anyway, it's safe.

Exclamation Haynes Reconsider Closing The Forum

Haynes have seen the response by members to the closing of their forum and would like to help the forum maintain its presence.

We're considering the various options open to us, including continuing to maintain this forum. Whatever the final outcome, Haynes will do their best to ensure the valuable information on this site remains available. Your patience in this will be much appreciated.

In view this I'm closing this thread and Haynes will endeavour to keep the forum well informed of where things go from here.
