      TAMB CLOSURE ANNOUNCEMENT   09/06/2017

      Following diminishing numbers of visitors to TAMB and the subsequent reduction in TAMB income, it is the intention for TAMB to close definitively from 1st November 2017. TAMB can no longer generate enough advertising revenue to cover the costs of around £300/month to pay for the dedicated server that hosts the TAMB software.  The dedicated server is also older equipment and no longer maintainable, so at some point it would be necessary to migrate the TAMB to a new cloud-based platform. This is quite a large job and would take some time to do. We feel it wouldn't be a worthwhile task given the reduction in traffic and usage of TAMB.  It is the opinion of the TAMB Team that the days of messageboards have largely gone, being overtaken by other platforms. Thank you to all users of the TAMB over the years, and we look forward to seeing you on some other online forums in the future. Since announcing the closure, a number of questions have been asked.

      This is not a "boot in the arse" to Board members to increase traffic.

      It’s worth pointing out to any people wanting to take on the TAMB that they will quickly outstrip any “free” message board system. That’s what happened with the pre-2003 TAMB and also happened during the “current TAMB” in 2003 – 2004. 
      It’s all about the number of concurrent users online. At a point yesterday there were about 150 users online – Invision would be charging $130 per month for that. (https://invisioncommunity.com/buy)

      We would be prepared to do a handover of the domain names that we currently hold to non-profit making group who seriously wants to organise a new TAMB and has the skills and numbers to do it. This would not include existing software or server. We are especially keen that the platform or the name do not fall into the hands of what we can only call bawbags. We need not mention names, but I'm sure members can think of a few. Any new group would have to start from scratch and give TAMB a complete bottom up ‘makeover’ and make themselves financially viable.   We have a couple of people who are willing to offer advice to any serious players.

      Further to the Closure Announcement   09/07/2017

  1. Marc 😛 Not long sent friends home. Told them to come back Thursday and clean up only to start all over again.
  2. Only two weeks to go. Any news if there will be a predictor this season?
  3. Exactly. Each time I've attempted to book a flight to Montenegro connections either don't figure or the other option flying from Edinburgh results in 2 stopovers. I'm all for long journeys but taking up to 17hrs to arrive has prevented me going. Taking my second trip to Croatia, this time staying south of Dubrovnik to have easier access to visit Montenegro. Considering car hire for two days to see Mostar, Tivat and this impressive fortress: Sokol Kula. Still to look into car hire/cross border charges in comparison to going by bus. My preference is to be free to wander in my own time and not be restricted with a tour. Has anyone been to Sokal Grad above the Dunave in the Konavle region?
  4. Going out now with some free-spirited Texas twang.
  5. Forgive him. Isn't it like working on three separate necks
  6. I can hear it 5:06 mins in. Surprised I enjoyed that so much but haven't a clue where it comes from. My only guess it's been inspired by Hemingway's Death in the Afternoon based on the lyrics. Did a quick search to see if it had been used elsewhere and the only offering of note albeit no connection whatsover was this little gem from the early 60s. Some of the older posters might remember it having a short run on TV not long after they formed.
  7. Big shout for Colin Macleod from Lewis soon to appear at Hebcelt along with Peatbog Faeries. Why am I always elsewhere and can't get up there nor can I find anyone who knows of him.
  8. I've probably duplicated many, so good nobody will remember. It is, now give us some more Mixed bag of random tunes coming your way....
  9. Within 7 mins by train from Central to Charing Cross you will reach the Bon Accord in North Street. Renowned as one of the best whisky bars in Glasgow and has a great selection of beers, also has live music nights on Saturdays. https://www.bonaccordpub.com/content/about/ A nod to The Clutha as already recommended if you'd prefer to walk stopping off on the way. A great pub always full of Glasgow characters and popular with a good mix of ages. Does a good turn promoting amateur musicians. Special mention has to go to the tree as a central feature in the bar area.
  10. Took me 5 minutes to realise it was Pink and not your 'Mrs'.
  11. Might have posted this one in TBNT thread...
  12. The mighty Eriskay FC and 'their well bumpy higgledy-pigglety previously five-cornered pitch boasted by a helpful rock in the middle...since removed.'
