Didnt touch anything on the forums btw.. I applied a new template to the main site.

The main changes are
~ Ive added some low key google ads
~ added a donate button
~ addition of a an online store
~ all pages (aside from a couple which use some scripts) are now valid html and css.

I'll take the opportunity to mention the online shop and kitz.co.uk becoming an amazon affiliate.
All the payments and shipping and customer service etc is handled by amazon and you pay the same price - but if you do buy anything from them, and go through the site store first, then the site gets a small % of how much you spend.

I'm not hiding anything and I'll be quite upfront about it (iirc its >5% depending on what you buy - up to a max commission of ?7). 
I wont be recommending certain products simply because they are on there.
But thought I may as well...  take the Netgear router for eg..   Ive lost count of the number of times Ive recommended the Netgear - simply because I believe it is the best router for a lot of people - and amazon do it at the best price. :)

Ive always tried to keep the site ad free yada yada - but the reasons why Ive had to do this have been outlined on this page.
The site will probably move over to a new host early next year.

I may do a slightly different template for the forums at some point too - but not touching that right now.
I quite like the effect on the outer part of the xmas banner - but will see what I can come up with when I get time to play with a few things :)
