I've noticed a couple of issues with the board since the server upgrade.

1. The "View First Unread" link doesn't always work, it sometimes just puts you on the first post.

2. The page numbering of the forum is a bit odd. It goes 1, 2, 3, 11. Or maybe we're all working in base 3 now.

That's all. Carry on.

I noticed this happenning before the upgrade...

It would be good if there was a redirect from the old pages to the new ones - so (e.g. http://forums.contractoruk.com/forum6.html goes to the new URL for light relief).

They all come up in my address bar when I start typing "forum", and it's a pain to have to go to the homepage and navigate!

We've just finished off the third bottle of wine and we're no where near as drunk as yous.

I've just realised - number 2 is probably just a quicker way of navigating. D'oh.

It's easy to convert numbers of base 3 to base ten. You simply multiply each digit by the appropriate power of the base and add up the results. For example, the base three number 2201 = 2 × 33 + 2 × 32 + 0 × 31 + 1 × 30 = 73. It is also fairly simple to obtain a base three number from a base ten number by dividing the number by three, generating a digit from the remainder, and repeating the process with the integer of the quotient to obtain successive digits. For example, we could reverse the example shown above (R stands for remainder):

73 ÷ 3 = 24 R 1
24 ÷ 3 = 8 R 0
8 ÷ 3 = 2 R 2
2 ÷ 3 = 0 R 2

The base ten number 73 is thus converted back to the base three number 2201.

Therefore if we were using base 3 then the resultant confusion would be astronomical as most of our members are either drunk or totally spaced out when posting :D
