Just a test to see if the site transfer is complete.

I prefer the old setup, because : 1) It looked better, 2) It had tweaking downloads available, 3) You could find information about where to obtain a suitable bios update file for whatever type of board you have.

The main reason for the site update was to make my job easier. So many forums on other sites get overrun by spammers and it was getting to be a chore to keep them under control here on K6Plus. For every legit user that signed up I was deleting dozens of spam accounts. It was to the point that I was blocking several entire countries from accessing the site just to cut down on spam. Now since the update I have all countries unblocked and haven't had a single spam registration.

The forums are the most important resource of K6Plus and what my main concern is. But I haven't forgotten about the downloads and other content we had and I will be trying to incorporate it in to the updated site when I can.
