    This is stuff that I have updated recently, chances are I have forgotten alot of stuff but rest assured that I have been spending alot of time bringing the site up to scratch:

    FIXED RECENTLY
    • Fixed the server time again.
    • Fixed the checkbox for check all/none on the private message section.
    • Enabled gzip to increase site speed at a minimal increase in server load.
    • Fixed robots.txt. Site pages will now be correctly spidered
    • Updated the menu lists.
    • Fixed the charset, ASCII characters should now be displayed correctly.
    • Restored original site logos and fixed Orbitz image under Mozilla.
    • Fixed the forum backend for compliancy.
    • Repaired the site backend for Klipfolio 2.0
    This is stuff I intend to do as soon as I can!

    STILL TO DO
    • Remove tags from backend
    • Update forum backend to use the same system as the frontend
    • Revamp the articles sections.
    • Contine rebuilding the downloads section.
    • Sort out the damn adverts.
    • Continue to make every single page on the NTFS site W3 compliant.
    • Sort out the news posting images to look good on both varieties of theme on NTFS.
    • Update to vbulletin3 when it becomes final
    • Fix the NTFS WAP Site
    • Write Klipfolio (RSS) guides and WAP guide.
    • Anything else that I can think of

    Are you gonna fix Orbitz too? I really want to use it, but when scrolling through the pages it's sooooooo slooooow. Ekko scrolls like a rocket. Or is that what you are fixing with X-istence right now? If so, I haven't said a thing.

    the slow scrolling is caused by the background image, the only way that could be fixed would be to actually remove the background image (which I think would actually make it look simpler/cleaner anyway) :)

    I agree. You hardly see it, most of the time it's covered up. You only see the edges.
