Well most likely anyway.

I have recently received a notice from the webspace provider that They are discontinuing PHP4 (which is what this forum runs on) at the end of May. They are recommending upgrading immediately to PHP5 or higher.

It is extremely unlikely that this forum will run on anything above PHP4, as it pre-dates PHP5 and since it was so heavily customised in years gone by it is not possible to upgrade the forum software.

After the PHP is switched it will not be reversible so I propose to take things to the wire before giving it a try. However I think that when the switch happens, the forum will cease to exist. So be warned. Monday 28th May is their proposed switchover day.

This is sad news, but I it was inevitable one day as Jimi has been warning us for some time that the forum may collapse due to its age, (i'm getting into an area I know nothing about) so we must resign ourselves to the inevitable,which will be a sad end to a good soarer forum
