      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

  7. I hope it's in celje again.... 3 finer goals you never did see and it was one of the funniest singsongs ever
  8. Tescos own in the tartan box or asdas chosen by you range are the best of the cheap ones. Twinnings Ceylon or English breakfast are particular favourites of mine. Black tea in a China cup 😃😃 Coffee is the devils sperm !!!

  10. I'm staying in the heart of the old town next to the Gates of Dawn. I like a wee museum jaunt, spent hrs in them in Georgia this year much to the dismay of the Mrs lol
  11. I had already started a thread on this but has went missing...... anyway I'm heading there tomorrow for a few days with mrs Bunnet. I'm quite looking forward to it and after changing hotels my full trip for two days is £150 flights and hotels. What are the must sees and don't do ??
  12. I was fekin smashed at the darts on monday, won my game 2-0 and was shit. 100% on my doubles though. I play in the Kilmarnock 1st div which is just starting as we play a champs league type thing to see who plays in the top division and the 2nd division. I play on a Fri too in the New Cumnock league which has some serious teams in it. I had to give up on the Ayr league and counties as it's expensive and the wife goes mental lol
  13. It's a horrible shift and I'm on it constant the noo. Out the house at 7pm home at 830am. I normally go to bed at 10 and up at 5. After my last shift I've got to sleep till 3 as I can't function if I get up earlier. It's easier in the winter with the pishing rain battering the window and no pesky lawnmowers. I sometimes have dinner, sometimes have toast. I carry rolls crisps and chocolate to see me through the night and about 20 cups of tea. There are times you will hit the wall in the middle of the night and that's hard. You'll know when you hit it lol. If you have a family don't do it, the extra money can't make up for the lost family time.
  14. £42 for flights £77 for digs. I couldn't travel to Glasgow and stay there for 3 nights for that money
  15. Might do a wee weekend there end of October, return flights only £50 for me and mrs bunnet. Never been so whats the positives and negatives.
