We have already created an archive of this forum which can be viewed here (but you won't be able to post to it). It is currently it is not up to date.however. In a few days we will have updated it and we will delete the forum in its current form from here (and replace it with a redirect page).
You will fnd that the archived forum is much faster to load and therefore very easy to browse. Hopefully I'll find time to create an index/contents page to it before too long.
