    I have literally no idea what happens if you send money to a valid email address which isn't linked to a paypal account... but, it looks like it's arrived in the correct PP account anyway :thumbsup:

    You are all fantastic, and a big hug to the 20 members who gave so generously! There is now enough money in the PayPal account to cover the licenses :cool:.

    I've already removed some of the lesser used functionality which isn't getting updated for the new version. I think it's had a bit of a positive effect on page load times as a result (less code, less load!). You may have noticed the main landing page is looking a little less busy, but then that page will disappear as the portal system it uses isn't getting rewritten for the new version! The forum list will be the new landing page, until I can decide on what to have in it's place.

    I'll try and make some more progress over the bank holiday weekend, assuming the Tough Mudder 10 mile run/obstacle course doesn't kill me on Saturday! Should be able to get the rest of the licenses purchased.

    Hi all, another quick thank you to everyone who has donated.

    I've just been browsing through the new features, and I'm blown away with how far the 2.1 version has developed over the 1.5 version we are running. Almost too many new features for me to take in right now... So many things that I had to find third party plugins for are now built in to the core system. I'm really looking forward to this now, will make the work well worth it!
